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.

A: cloudy; stream of carbonation rising; a dull gold in color; 1 finger white head that receded quickly to a thin, uneven cap; OK lacing;

S: coriander, black pepper; orange and lemon in the background;

T: same flavors as the aroma, but the citrus is more pronounced; finish is tart and citrusy; no bitterness;

M: light to medium bodied; effervescent carbonation; semi-dry finish;

O: enjoyable, but I won't chase this one down for a repeat;

Beautiful thick and hazy - truly opaque - golden yellow brew, topped by a massive, fluffy snow-white head. Great retention, leaving behind clouds of lacing.

Aroma lives up to the description: traditional BPA/sweet Saison aroma of lemon, yeast, straw, sugar, and wheat melds with a relatively subdued dry-hop aroma carrying notes of tropical and citrus fruit, a touch of pine, and a bit of dankness.

Flavor is a bit sharper, but otherwise represents the nose quite well. Tart up front; followed by straw and sugar; that followed by bananas, yeast, and cloves; and finally finished off by a sharp lemony bite and a hoppy bitterness.

Quite a bit of bite to the mouthfeel; slick; very lively. Just thin enough that you could gulp it, but just thick and milky enough that you don't want to.

Of the American-style dry-hopped Saisons, this might be the most delicate presentation I've had yet. The hops are present (but not overbearing) in the aroma, and the flavor is just fantastically melded together. Wonderful daily drinker, and at a very accessible ABV.
