Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Poured into a tulip glass from a 12oz bottle.

Pours a nice slightly hazy mild copper color with some golden honey hues. There is a nice 1 inch white head that is pretty dense and frothy. When held up to the light the brew has a nice amber brightness.

Aroma is pretty delicious dry yet resinous grassy hop notes come up first. Fresh cut grass with some mild citrus notes of tangerine and some nice mild piney notes. There is some good dry and earthy grain notes present in the nose as well.

Flavor starts off with yummy earthy grain and some nice malty sweetness. Notes of pear juice and some apple can be perceived mixed in with the earthyness and dryness. Then there is a nice grassy and herbal hop note with some mild citrusy undertones that gives the beer a nice complete roundness. The hop notes are present but not overwhelming and are balanced perfectly by some more yeasty esters and sweetness that jumps out along the middle of the ride. The body is nice and clean with a good dry finish. Notes of funk and some cornhusk are definitely present along with the grainy earth tones.

Yet to have a bad beer by Prairie. These guys know how to make Saisons. Nice traditional notes mixed i with a tinge of Americana and NZ at that.

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.
