Notes/Commercial Description:
Prairie Hop is our hop driven saison. This beer is packed with Simcoe and Citra hops. Notes of peach, mango, and tangerine can be found in the flavor and aroma of this beer. The beer finishes dry which helps the hops jump out of the glass flavor wise.

Bought in the pint bottle, served slightly chilled in a mug that was probably not meant to host a saison. Oh well.

Appearance: Huge head. Four fingers. From the top kind of looks like a marshmallow that's been on a campfire too long (without the burn), but it's a lovely color similar to cantaloupe. Hazy with heavy carbonation.

Smell: Very aromatic, could smell very clearly while I was pouring. Slightly sour smell, only a hint of hops. Floral and fruity.

Taste: Surprisingly not nearly as strong as the smell. Has the typical funk on the finish, but otherwise only a faint tartness on the middle of the tongue. Pleasant.

Mouthfeel: Thinner than expected, but the carbonation is less heavy than it appears, which is a pleasant surprise.

Overall: Pleasant if not quite the flavor bomb I was expecting. A decent representation of the style. Perhaps an entry level representation, but I don't claim to know much of this particular style.

White head with some lace left. Color is a hazy golden orange.

Flavor profile: very fruity and hoppy. Clementines, tangerines, and oranges. Floral and pine hops. Kind of herbal. Belgian yeast with some dryness. It has grape like flavors with some tannins. A light amount of barnyard funk.

Mouthfeel: smooth with a slight bitterness. Kind of funky. Lighter bodied. Nice carbonation. Ends a little dry.

Overall, a really solid saison. I loved how fruity and hoppy this one was. Very drinkable!

Pours a hazy gold with a bubbly white head. Huge aroma of tropical fruits, yeast and piney hops. Easily one of the best aromas I've come across. Tangerine, pineapple and mango stand out. There's a touch of spice, and the hops give it a decent bitterness. Medium mouth with a carbonated crispness. The other dry-hopped saisons I've tried were middling, at best. This one is juicy and flavorful.

Pours a bright golden orange with a shimmering off-white head. Sour grapefruit goodness to the nose. Orange and lemon zest with a little sugar and spice and other light, ripe fruits too. Tastes of lemon, Belgian yeast and grain with a fine hop finish. Dry as can be and a little crackery in the end. So fine. So fine.

4.44/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from the bottle into a wine glass. Solid pop off the cork.

Deep orange to murky yellow body, and quite opaque. Not much noticeable carbonation. Head is fleeting, bright white and two fingers, but with a very soapy appearance. Dissolves quickly, and leaves a fizzy collar.

Fantastic bouquet. Huge tropical pineapple and grapefruit quality. Big juiced grapefruit notes, earth hop and mushroom and green garden herbality. A spritzy mimosa like carbonation quality of fruit as well.

Bright tasting fruit palate. Big spritzy and hop forward tropical notes and fruit juice. Hop bitter quality with a zesty oil, hot flashing quick and subtle peppers on the aftertaste. Supper crisp dry body with light quenching and coating mouthfeel. Good amount of malt sweetness and hints of Belgian cand y slightly it seems.

A fresh fruity dry and hoppy like mimosa in a glass. Quite tasty like most Prairie brews.

25.4 oz. bottle poured into tulip
2013 on cork

L: perfect. misty gold/orange with white foam for days ... the head is classic Belgian farmhouse, a pile of cotton balls, and it's super sticky; you can see the effervescence in the column (it's just clear enough), and the whole thing is just a show, man ... and what a show!

S: strawberries, rasberries, sour grapes, white whie ... lots of sweetness in with the tart/sour farmhouse note; yeast ... and bread dough

T: yes! strawberries, rasberries, grapes, sour grapes, white wine, some sweetness, some tartness ... my gosh. and now back there behind all that are hops, lots of them, American hops, too, with some floral/citrus flavors and a bitter backbone. if it were a pinch less bitter, it might be perfect (for me); as it is, damn ... this thing is good.

F: mesmerized by look, smell, flavor, it's hard not to say the mouthfeel is perfect. classic Belgian again, loads of carbonation but not harsh, rip-your-tongue-off carbonation ... it's bubbly and full but just soft enough to feel right (possibly TOO right ... i'm wanting to suck it down like water!)

O: now *this* is a true Belgian-American hybrid. it's mixing several quality Belgian notes with some nice American hop notes to create a fantastic saison. and the amazing thing: nothing is overdone. it's not a hop salad, not super sweet, not overly tart, not too murky, not antiseptic clear ... it's a pinch over my favorite bitter line, but it's NOT too bitter, not even close.

easy to see why so many like this brew. it's freaking good.
