Prairie Standard is our everyday beer. Its a light, crisp saison with a hoppy finish. This beer is dry hopped 1lb per bbl with Motueka hops. A lovely New Zealand hop with a spicy lime like flavor and aroma.

L: Hazy yellow. Thin white head which dissipates quickly. Good lacing. I like the hand-drawn label and bottlecap.
S: Lemon and lime.
T: Lime. Grassy? Nice. Refreshing.
F: Light bodied. Good carbonation.
O: Good. A nice example of the style. The lime taste is a nice change.

Sort of confused by the reviews of this one - beguiled by Prairie perhaps; regardless, it's a decent representation of this style, but it fell short in virtually every category for me...very faint citrus/lemon, and farmhouse flavors, but overall I just get malt and an almost lager taste.

Eh, am I missing something here? Tastes like perfume and flowers. I get dough and bread on the backend and an earthiness as well. I assume this isn't how it normally is. Or at least, I hope not.

12 oz. bottle, with some sort of smeared coded bottling information on the side. Shelton Brothers just recently hit my area with lots of bottles, so I know this one is fresh. My third beer from Prairie Artisan Ales, and my second of their saison / farmhouse ale offerings. My bottle lists a 5.60% abv.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a nice bright cloudy golden orange, with just a bit of yeast sedimentation noticeable, and one finger of soft fluffy white head. Doesn't leave much lacing behind, but it looks solid either way.

S - The aroma is much more on par with what I expect from a saison than their Prairie Birra was. Floral, herbal, & malty, with an almost gose-like sour / saltiness to it.

T - Taste is crisp & zesty, lemony & citrusy, herbal & floral. Grainy & bready with crisp saison yeast. As noted, the Motueka hops add a nice lemon / lime citrus flavor to the brew.

M - Crisp, clean, & zesty. Medium-bodied with excellent carbonation.

Overall, an excellent every day easy-drinking saison. By far one of those most solid representations of the style that I've yet to try, and I continue to look forward to more from Prairie.

Prairie Standard -----4/5.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip

A- golden with an orange hue, inch of head that doesn't stick around, I'd say average farmhouse coloring

S-toasted malts, citrus zest, spicy earthiness

T- pils malt, citrus zest, lime, grassy dry earthy finish.

M- decent mouth feel, medium carbonation, good crisp dryness

O- this is a decent saison. I expected more coming from prairie. I'd like the saison yeast to shine through a little more. Overalls this is a decent offering that is pretty drinkable

Pours a light golden color with a white head. Earthy farmhouse aroma with some grain and spicy yeast. A touch of lemongrass.

The taste is earthy and slightly spicy with lemon and floral notes. Fairly bitter. Dry, spicy, earthy, muted funk. Abrasive even with the herbal bite.

Highly carbonated, spritsy brew. Overall it's decent but not crazy good standard saison. I'd drink it again.

Poured from a bottle into a schooner, the beer is a slightly hazy, yellow-straw coloring with a fizzy, filmy, surface coating of head. Aromas of toasted grains, lemon zest, dill, basil, jasmine, tangerine, cut grass, and subtle pepper spice. Flavors are a little more hop forward, with a bit of cedar, grassy notes, and a citrus blend of tangerine and lime. The spice blend is there, too, to layer the palate. Light bready backbone, almost like a pie crust, with some lemon notes coming forward at the end of the palate. The body is full, but light in mouth, with a citrus and herbal balance in the aftertaste. The finish is light, smooth, and slightly effervesced. Extremely drinkable beer.
