Brewer Description: (from website) 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. Prairie Ale is fermented with a mix of ale yeast, wine yeast, and brettanomyces. Notes of black pepper and pineapple can be found in this beer.

Intro: A 16.9 fl oz (500ml) bottle with a Julian bottled on date of 24114, meaning it was bottled on 29th August 2014. It was poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
Appearance: It poured a cloudy golden colour with a 2 finger pillowy white head that dissipates slowly leaving nice lacing.
Aroma: Nice funky farmhouse aromas with some pineapple, sour apple, light honey, some citrus and pepper.
Taste: Lemon juice, green apple, honey and pepper. Surprisingly a little on the sweet side.
Mouthfeel: Dry, light to medium bodied with high carbonation.
Overall: Great colour and aromas although it was surprisingly on the sweet side for me.
