Beer added by: BierGartenok on 11-26-2012

Prairie Ale is our classic saison. We brew this beer with pilsner malt, wheat malt, flaked wheat, and cane sugar. A healthy dose of saaz hops are used to add a spicy element to the beer. Prairie Ale is fermented with a mix of ale yeast, wine yeast, and brettanomyces. Notes of black pepper and pineapple can be found in this beer.

Pours a cloudy golden yellow color with a huge four finger foamy white head. There is a lot of carbonation and the lacing is thick. The odor is farmhouse like, funky, champagne like, citrus lemon, grapefruit, spices, earthy, herbal, some pineapple. The taste is very refreshing, crisp, very spicy clove, lemon, herbal, dry finish, slight bitterness.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass.

Pours a hazy golden color. Considerable amount of bubbles. Very little head and lacing.

Definite sour notes with peaches and grapes. Almost has a white wine aroma.

Notes of grapes and grass in the taste. Only slightly sour. Can taste the alcohol but not too overpowering. Hints of earthiness and spices. I am definitely getting a white wine vibe with this beer. Light-bodied and fairly oily. Not as carbonated as it looked.

Overall this is a bit of a disappointment for me but maybe I am unfairly comparing it to Bomb which I found fantastic. I thought it would pack more of a punch. The white grape smell and taste is fairly strong and makes it feel like I am drinking carbonated wine. Its an interesting beer but not jumping out at me.

Big pear and floral aroma, with wheat and a confectioners sugar sweetness.

Slightly funky, grassy, earthy, a touch of lemon pith. A bit wheaty.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip

A. Pours a hazy light golden yellow color with a billowing, huge, foamy white head.

S. Yeast, green apple, white grape, tamarind, some light island like spices, tumeric.

T. Taste is much like the nose. Little tartness. Not too funky. Nice.

M. Light to medium bodied. 4 out of 10 on a scale. Quite bubbly and carbonation chasing the swallow down the throughout. Dry finish.

O. A nice beer. Haven't had a Belgian quite like it. Would get again. Refreshing.
