Prairie Ale is our classic saison. We brew this beer with pilsner malt, wheat malt, flaked wheat, and cane sugar. A healthy dose of saaz hops are used to add a spicy element to the beer.

Served On-Tap

A – Pours a bright translucent gold with a nice stark white head.

S – Very bright, lemon, orange, yeast, funk, pepper.

T – Notes of lemon juice, bright yeast, peppery, sweet malts, mild undertones of citrus and light spice, wonderful balance here, errs on the sweet side, ever so slightly.

M – Medium bodied, very nicely done.

O – Excellent offering here from Prairie, this is on the tart and bright side of the Saison spectrum, and it is done incredibly well. Nicely done.

On tap at Taphouse, Copenhagen
Who knows when the keg was tapped...

A - big white head that recedes to a lasting thing cap. Super clear light yellow body that starts to look really pale when backlit

S - not much happening. Light tropical fruits Nd
yeast

T - light malts and a touch of white pepper

M - really full with a slight bitter finish

O - it's a pleasant beer, but boring
