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.

12 ounce bottle. Served in a Prairie Teku, the beer pours a hazy dark gold color with about a half inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. The brew smells like bready malt, peppery spice, citrus, melon and a bit of earthy floralness. It tastes like melon, bananas, bready/grainy malt, honey, peppery spice and some white grape/wine. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit creamy with moderate carbonation. I think this is an OK brew overall and I won't have any problems finishing the 4-pack, but it's not one of the better Prairie ales I've tried. The longer I drank this, the less I liked it. Still, it's worth picking up if you've never had it before.

Hazy yellow with a frothy, sticky white head on top. Aroma is spicy and on the sharp side at first...freshly milled malt, cracked pepper, wet hay, flowers, and earth. Flavor gets things working more in harmony; the peppery yeast is still at the forefront, but a nice cereal maltiness starts to smooth it out before a light lime and melon finish. Fairly light and zesty, leaving the mouth dry. Definitely has the drinkability nailed down. The aroma is perhaps a little overly rustic, but it helps lend an authentically "farmhouse" feel to the whole deal.

Hazy golden straw colored beer with a nice cakey white head that in due time fades to a lumpy layer leaving a sticky ring of sheety lace on the glass. Aroma is a bit wacky farmhouse. First thing that comes to mind is an unidentified stinky fruit that is somewhere between tropical and fig and bergamot. A little wine-like, slightly phenolic, certainly floral, with maybe honey, and an interesting array of spicy yeasty aromas. Taste follows right along the same lines. White wine nuances, slight tart bitterness, rooty veggies, a shroomy earthiness, spicy hop, and wild flowers or potpourri. Mouthfeel is smooth, evenly and finely carbonated, approaching dryness, and somewhat fluffy in texture. Overall an enjoyably farmy, earthy, and fairly unusual saison.

Nice clean, quaffable saison. Bright carbonation and slight funkiness. Great simplicity here. Notes of melon, banana and long grains. Good stuff for a hot day, or a freezing one begging for summer.
