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: 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.

Classic Saison. Excellent mouthfeel, spice, Brett and carbonation. Could drink this all day long!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: High carbonation straight from the bottle as foam slowly finds it's way out of the neck. Hazy yellow body and a huge head with great lacing.

Aroma: Pickly funk (brett?) and citrus.

Flavor: The nose was great, but doesn't even do justice for what you're about to encounter. Big explosion of funk, citrus, and peppery yeast character. Light wheat sweetness also adds a layer of complexity.

Mouthfeel: Super carbonated and bone dry.

Overall: I think I may be ruined on other saisons. Truly an incredible beer.
