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.

A - pours a clear lemonade straw with a finger of white head, so so retention and lacing

S - Funky grain, tart and funky yeasts

T - awesome combination of grainy funky and lemony, slight spice

M - somewhat heavy for the style. Light to medium bodied, decent carbonation

O - Very will balanced, substantial feeling but lightish flavors.

Another new arrival to try.

Pours a cloudy yellow with some lacing and white head.

Nose is funky and Brett.

Taste classic Saison. Nice lemon, pepper and brett. Really easy to drink and satisfying.

Mouth feel is nicely carbonated but not overly dry. Perfect.

This is a classic beer with great appeal. I am trying to think of a better Saison.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

appearance- golden yellow, high white head. small tight bubbles. my cork also popped with a vigor.

smell- fresh, coriander. no hops as expected, plenty of yeast.

taste- this is a good classic Saison, dry. not as sharp as some Saisons, little bit of wild funk, little pepper.

mouthfeel- light and refreshing.

Overall- very reminiscent of blvd- tank 7, great divide- collette. less alcohol then some but enough especially for a bomber. little more funk then some. very good, every day brew. with out a every day price. i can see where this brew can vary from bottle to bottle or at least batch to batch as the yeast seems to be let lose a little more. Great job Oklahoma.

(Served in a dimple mug)
A- cork pulls out like a shot with a lemon yellow body having just a touch of haze. There is a snow white head supported by lots of strands of tiny bubbles racing to the surface. The second glass is quite murky.

S- The rich saison yeast aroma gives way to a nice white cheese mold Brett character with some grapefruit pith Brett smells to follow.

T- The nice full Brett cheese rind has some lemon tartness as it opens but it is covered a bit by the scrubbing fizz. There is a fleeting pineapple hint with some big herbal pungent bite of hops in the finish. A touch of sweetness in the finish compliments all the flavors nicely. A tartness and raw wheat flavor come though as it opens and the fizz dries out the finish.

M- The light mouthfeel has a big scrubbing fizz and no alcohol or astringency noticed.

O- The fizz and bitterness component is a bit too big but this is one of the best Brett beers I have had from the states. The saison qualities are nice but outshined by its wild cousin. Very drinkable and sessionable with lots of great character.
