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 on tap in a tulip. 3 finger bright white head, deep orange pale. Gorgeous.

Nose is bright and citrusy with a definite barnyard funk. Not overwhelming but provides just enough of a nice bret complexity. Not pungent or in your face, but delicate, intricate and fresh.

Citrusy hops hit first then mellow out to the beer funk which is just perfect. Hay, lemongrass, grapefruit, and bitter citrus rind dominate. Nice soft hint of wheat and although the malt backbone is present, it is understated and supports the hops.

Mouthfeel is bright and creamy. An initial burst of carbonation quickly dissipates into a smooth and dry finish, which still retains the tartness of the brew. Alcohol warmth shows up at the back of the tongue and rounds out nicely.

Overall a great offering from prairie. I'd recomend this for anyone venturing into the Bret category but not quite into the full-funkiness. A great hybrid beer.

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.
