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.

Pours cloudy golden color with a thick foamy head. Head retention is decent. Lacing is a good amount. Has the funky farmhouse, sour fruit aroma. Slightly hoppy up front with some spicy carbonation and sour fruit funk at the end. Typical farmhouse funky aftertaste. Very representative of the type of beer. Enjoyable.

i love this beer, and i love the label. how to noodle for catfish? only these guys right? haha. the beer in the bottle is fantastic. it pours rather clear until the last fifth or so of the bottle when the sediment rolls out. its blonde and hazy, its pale and really really fizzy. tickles my nose as i smell the new zealand lemony hops oozing from it, and a mild french saison yeast that pairs geniusly with the hops. i like that the yeast is subtle here, its distinct, really drying with a touch of white wine esters, but its not dominating, and lets the malt and hops contribute nearly equally. the hops are so cool, i love the new zealand stuff. citrus and that peculiar oil property only these strains have. enough carbonation for a couple of saisons, which i really like. effervescence is always flattering to this style, and with a mildly creamy light to medium body, its the perfect effect for what i like. i plan to drink a whole lot of this while its on shelves. way better then the last four pack they put out, birra.

Poured into a pint glass.

A: 5 - What a beautiful beer! An orange/tan color, quite hazy. Poured about a finger of white, foamy head. Looks wonderful!

S: 4.8 - This smells awesome. A lot of citrus. Orange, a little lime. A very floral scent. Grapefruit.

T: 5 - Holy shit. It's an absolute mouthful of flavor. Grapefruit and orange jump out. There is a wonderful tartness about it, like it hugs my tongue. The citrus is strong on the taste like it was on the nose. Super impressive.

M: 5 - It's comfortable to drink. It goes down easy, no burn. Good stuff.

O: 4.95 - I went in to this review expecting to give this probably around a 4. Maybe I rated this so highly because I haven't had many Saison/Farmhouse Ales, I don't know. This was my first one to review, and I will definitely be trying some more of this style. I thought the big imperial stouts reigned supreme, but damn I enjoyed this beer. 3/3 for Prairie so far.

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.
