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.

Thanks to Sammy for this bottle.

Beer is cloudy orange with a big, fluffy white head. Good retention and lacing.

Nose is lovely, super juicy and fruity. Peach comes screaming out, with other tropical and citrus scents. I don't get much in the way of yeast or other typical saison aromas, but very nice.

The yeast and dryness is there in the taste, making it more recognizable as a saison than the aroma let on. The fruit is still there and still good, but the yeast is present in equal measure. A bit spicy. Hops give some bitterness along with fruit.

Medium bodied, moderately carbonated. A bit astringent.

Overall, very good.

Cloudy yellow with a puffy white retaining head.

Pepper, hops and yeast.

Very light and nice, the hops are unfamiliar but subdued and right for the style. Has a tea like character and not much in the way of bite or burn. Could use a punch-up but still a nice, easy citrus character. Not really spicy.

Staining, not crisp.

Got in a trade with cyde. 12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours moderately hazy bright golden amber color with a 2-3 finger foamy and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big lemon zest, lime, peach, pear, apple, floral, grass, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, light honey, herbal, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity and balance of hop, malt, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of big lemon zest, pear, apple, lime, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, grass, floral, herbal, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of lemon zest, lime, pear, apple, wheat, clove, pepper, bread, grass, floral, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent hoppy saison! All around great complexity and balance of hop, malt, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Poured from the bottle a cloudy gold color with two fingers of off-white head. A good amount of sticky lacing left behind.

Soft aroma of grassy and citrus hops.

The taste was much vibrant than the aroma with grassy hops, some funk and yeast, white pepper and wheat notes. Slight tartness to the finish.

Medium bodied with a sticky dryness and a moderate carbonation.

A delicious and sessionable Saison from Prairie.
