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.

On-tap at Hopleaf. Served in their branded tulip.

A - White foam settles to a near-complete cap, thick collar, and splotches of lace. Lightly hazed orange-amber body.

S - Fruity citrus and grassy hop notes, lightly toasted grains, some tangy yeast notes, perhaps a bit a wheat.

T - The taste is a bit more grain and malt heavy, before yielding to some nice citrus and stone fruit sweetness in the finish. Bready, with mildly spicy yeast character, but not as phenolic as the aroma.

M - Dry, grainy, medium body, with zesty carbonation. Crisp and clean finish. A tad heavier than I was expecting for 5.2%, but still sufficiently effervescent for the style.

D - A nice farmhouse ale. Promising start for a new brewery in the market; I'll have to try a few more of Prairie's offerings in the future.

I picked up a 6 pack of this while passing through Mass, first time buying anything from Prairie.

Poured into a tulip glass, this farmhouse style beer pours a hazy yellow color with a good-sized white head. Its` nose has white grape, lemon, grass and some soap. Interesting smell, a nice one to be sure. The taste is more lemon, pepper, a funk certainly presents itself, grassy, yeast. I was a bit skeptical, but this is no sub-par table saison. Mouthfeel is medium and it is fairly bitter in the finish. But, it leaves you craving some more of it. All in all, a really nice, flavorful beer with interesting characteristics to it. It`s good to know that I have a few more in the basement.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

What better place to start with a new brewery than their standard, eh? This stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger of dirty white foam. The nose comprises wheat, mild orange zest, light sweet biscuit, and a general sense of a rustic field (or something along those lines). The taste brings in more of the same, along with a pervasive rustic tartness. There's some decent funk in here, but it doesn't go overboard. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a damn solid saison, heavy on both the funk and the enjoyment.
