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 a pale straw colour, steady haze. Head is white, scraggly, settles to a finger of head with no real lacing. Interesting, not overly so though.

Smells mildly Bretty and funky. Green apple, notes of citrus zest with some barnyard and a funny grain-malt note, almost popcorny. Quite pleasant.

Taste is mildly tart. Quite dry, somewhat wheaty, with just a very soft pull from a mild barnyard note that really dries it up without adding much character. Slight fruity notes, somewhat cereal-y, ultimately refreshing but not too interesting.

Quite full; almost unsettlingly so. Bitty, slightly dry. A bit odd.

Dry, refreshing, Champagne-esque beer. Very sessionable, but also because it's at times a bit tame and mild compared to what it feels like it could be.

Cant help but coerce some members to find this wonderful beer. A very underestimated beer.

A – Slightly cloudy - straw yeller

S – Smell is outstanding - Lime/lemon zest

T – Session? Certainly doesn't taste like one . Immediate slight sour taste, followed crisp finish. Absolutely perfect

M – Medium to high carb - dry mouth feel. Exactly where it should be.

O – Took me by surprise. One of the finest brews I have ever been fortunate enough to sample. I am partial to high alcohol, high complex brews, but this beer should be a year around staple. Awesome.

Poured out of a bottle into my tulip. Received in a trade from Zerocrane (thanks Jon!)

A – She poured out a nice hazy amber color with a finger of slightly off white head that stuck around a bit. Spotty lacing across the glass.

S – Smells like a good farmhouse ale should. Grassy, grainy, peppery all with some nice citrus such as lemon, orange and a touch of grapefruit. Nice.

T – Interesting flavors in this one for sure. Starts out with a nice grassy hop flavor but also had a twinge (light) of sourness to it. Hops and sour almost mute each other. It’s quite nice. Pepper flavors roll through and I do get a lime touch as well however again it’s faint. Touch of sweetness at the end.

M – Very light bodied ale here with light to mid carbonation. Dry.

O – Very nice drinking saison. Nothing overwhelms you here with this brew but it’s damn fine. Easy drinking and refreshing. Had this sitting outside when it was 90 out and this hits the spot. Would gladly have another.
