Poured from a caged bottle into a snifter, the beer is a slightly hazed, golden-straw coloring with a frothy, big bubbled, light, bright white head that retains around an inch and a half. Solid stream of carbonation bubbling throughout, also. Aromas of wet greens initially, with some citrus hops highlights and coriander spicing. Flavors are extremely well balanced, with a forward flavor of wet, peppery hops balanced with citrus and berry sweetness. There is a bready and roasted backbone that also blends and supports the spice and funk. Slightly warming, and the smooth body makes this a severely easy drinker. Wow. Candy sweet and herbal aftertaste that balances perfectly, and is subtle enough to draw you further in. Smooth, clean finish, with a hint of citrus and spice left behind to linger. Great brew.

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
