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 - Dense, opaque banana yellow body. Towering bone-white head with nice retention and lace.

S - Dry and dusty. Juniper, barn yard hay, bitter dandelion, plantain, and rose water.

T - Smooth and fruity. Banana cream, grass, orange zest, and waxy potpourri.

M - Thick and creamy, and light on carbonation. It's a strange pairing with the flavor profile.

O - Really interesting, one of the more unique beers I've had in a while. Drinks like a hefeweizen-saison hybrid.

500mL into a tulip. Pours a hazy golden color w/ a soft fluffy white head, nice carbonation. Spot-on for the style.

Aroma is grassy, earthy and funky with some pepper and spice, lemon.

Taste follows nose. Earthy and funky with floral hops and a citrusy, spicy twist.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp, light to medium body. Refreshing and drinkable.

Overall a really nice saison that reminds me why I love this style.

A - 4 - clear straw colored here with big white head on it.
S - 4.25 - dry, white grapes, bread, peppery,
T - 4.25 - follows the nose. White pepper, white wine, bread, very dry. Super clean.

O 4.25 - probably the best saison I've had by far.
