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.

The beer is extremely hazy and straw yellow with a soapy white head. The aroma offers lemons, hay, grass, floral hops, citrus. Lots of citrus in the flavor. Delicious. Mild funk with orange rind, floral hops, and a slight herbal note. Medium bodied, complex; and easy drinking. Really tasty.

Poured into a tulip.

A kick in the head at first sip, but very drinkable. I try to grade to style. This beer is at the extreme of the style. 4.75

A – Pours a hazy golden yellow/pale orange color with a two-finger mousy head. Average lacing. 4.5

S – Barnyard, spice, citrus/lemon, yeasty, sour (-) 4.5

T – Clean, citrus, a bit acidic, lactic, some herbal bitterness, the 8.2% ABV not evident. 4.75

MF – Super dry finish, tart – maybe even a bit astringent, medium-light body. 5

July 26, 2014
Poured from a 16.9 oz bottle into a tulip.

A – Hazy, golden or straw colored, with a hint of dark yellow or amber. An inch-plus of creamy frothy head on top. Significantly more head when I sped up the pour on the second glass, almost four inches on top of a couple inches of beer. Tiny amount of sediment in the bottle clouds it up even more at the end.

S – Yeast, acidity, funk. Imagine there’s some lactobacillus or brett in here.

T – Very acidic, slightly tart, taste a lot of lactic acid and strong citrus, mostly lemon. Funky. Again, either lactobacillus or brettanomyces character.

M – Lots of carbonation and effervescent bubbles. Really clears the palate between the bubbles and the acidity. Very refreshing.

O – Solid example of a farmhouse saison / sour. Would like a little more balance with the acidity.
