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.

Drank from a corked and caged 1 pint, 9.4 fl. oz. bottle purchased at Liquor World, Cambridge, MA
Served in a tulip

Cute and hip label artwork. Nicely done. After a loud pop of the cork, the beer poured a near crystal clear, light amber color. The liquid was capped by a fluffy, cottony, three-finger crown that slowly dropped to a lasting dollop of foam. While the head was quite impressive, I was disappointed by the minimal lacing.

The nose was outstanding. Amazingly complex and dynamic. The saison-like notes were well matched by fruity American C-hops. Clean, crisp and hay-like with a distinct farmhouse yeastiness. Fresh, grassy and floral. Lemony. Perhaps a touch musty with subtle hints of barnyard. The punchy, citrusy American hops contributed strong notes of candied orange peel and subtle hints of tropical fruits.

The flavor profile was similar to the nose but more hop forward. Strong, fruity and phenolic, Belgian yeast notes were instantly recognizable. Crisp and fresh with a stiff, pale malt backbone. Lots of citrusy hop character. Again, orange peel dominated. Some grapefruit was noticeable as well. Super smooth and not at all bitter. The finish was dry, grassy and immensely refreshing. As the beer warmed, the hops became more pronounced.

The liquid felt light, frothy and fluffy with a lively, bubbly effervescence. Slick, creamy and smooth on the palate.

Prairie Hop took a Belgian style beer and melded it with an American hop profile better than any other offering I have tried. This is truly a world class saison.

3.94/5  rDev -7.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Purchased in San Antonio and shipped back in my luggage. Poured into a tulip.

A very dry brew! A dry saison with the up-front hoppiness of a DIPA. I prefer my hoppy IPA/DIPAs with enough sweetness or maltiness to balance the hoppiness, which can still be very pronounced and over the top. As a Belgian ale Prairie Hop is missing this favorable balance and thus while a tasty beer, it both falls outside of normal style characteristics and my prefered tastes. 4.0

A – Pours a pale golden, cloudy with a big mousey white 2-finger head. 4.5

S – Hoppy apricot then grapefruit, sweetness, some earthy yeastiness. 4

T – Herbal hoppiness, bitter but quickly fades, a little yeasty. No pepperiness though probably overwhelmed by or otherwise masked by the hoppiness. 3.75

MF – Medium-light body, dry finish, no lasting bitterness, very sharp. 4.25
