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 oz bottle courtesy of clewis901 pours a hazed gold color with a modest cap of off-white head. Decent retention and not much lace.

Nose is tropical/citric hops and plenty of saison yeast! Wow...lemony, fruity, grainy and bready. Im impressed already.

Hops carry more than their fair share of the load with some zesty yeast and sourdough bread. Yeast is there, but it is not as soft and complex as say, a Saison Dupont. A touch overcarbonated, but nothing a few swirls of the glass cant fix. Id rather a saison be overcarbed than under. Its a pretty damn good saison, one of the most rustic versions you will find this side of the Atlantic...I am really happy to have a good pseudo-local saison producer so close. Cheers to you Prairie.

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.

A - Golden Color. light carbonated head. little tiny bubbles. 2 full inches of head that dissipates quickly. but never fully. a single stream of tiny tiny bubbles come up from the bottom.

S - light citrus. orange, grapefruit.

T - high carbonation. tiny bit of hops. orange and grapefruit. not bitter what so ever.

M - carbonation hits with a small punch. get a tingle on the tongue. Little bit slippery on the tongue.

O - This is really nice. low ABVs make this real drinkable. real light on the tongue. altho the high carbonation makes this bubble in the tummy. so can't have too many. It could be a bit thicker. that being said - i would buy this again.
