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.

12 ounce bottle purchased from Party House Liquor (Chino Hills, CA), on to the beer:

There's tint to the orange-yellow color, topped with a billowy head which leaves spots of lace on the walls of the glass. With one smell, I had an idea that I was working with a saison. The aroma has lemon peel, vague spice, a moderate farmhouse stink so common of the style. Regarding its taste, it's a somewhat sour flavor overall which doesn't really get funky. Slightly tart lemons, a kick of grass, and vague citrus make the flavor. With its drying and spiced finish, this beer was a pleasant pairing with a home grilled steak.

Pours into my Hennepin stemmed glass a hazed straw color with a fluffy bone white head that settles into a frothy mass after quite awhile.Lemon oils really stand out in the nose with a hint of funk and toasted cereal grain.Quite refreshing on the palate with lemon really standing out along with mild yeasty phenols,a hint of white pepper and some toasted cereal grains in the finish.A great "table" beer to be had.

Poured from bottle into teku. Pours hazy and pale yellow in color with minimal bubbly head and minimal lacing. Aroma is mostly saison yeast with a citrusy lemon-lime overtone. Mouth feel is medium bodied and nicely carbonated. Palate is lemon, lime, and peppercorn…sour throughout and finishes dry. A nice saison…easy drinker.

Thanks, baconsausage!

Murky, hazy golden straw color. Quickly forming head of white bubbles, but not a persistent one. Spots and smears of stick left down the glass.

As the name of the beer implies, this has a very standard, very straightforward saison aroma--which I like very much. Grain, sweetness, dry hay and grass, earthy notes, and some cracker and cereal. Some initial Band-Aid at cooler temperatures.

The flavor is similar to the aroma: sweet grain, hay and grass, mild pepper and lemon notes, moderate bitterness. Incredibly drinkable.

Medium to fuller in body for the style with moderate carbonation. I suppose I wish the body was a bit more lively.

Very nice, traditional saison.

Pours a golden color with a full white lacy head. Sweet lemon earthy aroma. Earthy, citrus, sweet pineapple. Genuine farmhouse sourness. I like this beer. Its different.
