Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

On tap at the Old Toad in Rochester, NY.

Pours a golden clear yellow, with a small half inch inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells quite yeasty, it's fruity and spicy, with some peppery hop aromas.

The yeast is just honestly too overpowering for me in this one, it got tiring. It's too fruity and estery. I wish the hops, or some malt shone through a little stronger, because the little bit of peppery hops I do get are very tasty.

This is light bodied, with a slightly oily mouthfeel, with a little crisp bite near the end.

Not my favorite saison.

Has a big lemony tart nose with a dab of barnyard funk and a hint of tropical fruit. Pours hazy straw under a very lightly gold tinted white 3” foam cap. Has a very lemony palate over light grains that suggest a very light short bread, light tropical fruit, white pepper with a light spicy touch on the finish. A light and refreshing beer.

A: The beer is very hazy pale light yellow in color—almost what you would expect from a Berliner Weissbier. It poured with a quarter finger high white heat that quickly died down but consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of brett yeast are present in the nose along with some hints of spices from the Saaz hops. The brett becomes a little stronger as the beer warms up.
T: The taste is a little sour from the brett and has notes of peppery spices towards the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is a nice hybrid between a saison and a wild ale; you can pick up the characteristics of both of these styles, both of which are balanced together.
