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.

Apricots, toilet funk. Grassy spices that linger in the finish. A bit soft in acidity, would've liked more. Leaves kind of a bittersweet taste which I'm not a fan of. Nice medium-body mouthfeel with high carbonation. Overall, not bad, light and quaffable, but doesn't quite reach greatness because of a misbalance in bitter/sweet/sour axis and too much going on (i.e. not elegant). I remember enjoying the hoppy version of this beer more.

Poured from a 22.

A bright golden pour with a thick stark white head. It smelled bright with a hint of fruit.
It has a light taste with hints of grass and citrus. I enjoyed the champagne like bubblyness of the mouth feel.

i am not normally a Saison fan, but I liked this one.
