Near death experience as I open the bottle and the cork shoots out but fortunately the beer itself did not gush. Fills the glass with an attractive hazy orange color and a nice dense and frothy white head on top.
The aroma absolutely kills it with a bright burst of tropical pineapple and mango notes. A bit peachy as well. Is this beer, or a Nantucket Nectars juice blend?
Powerful American hops and a rather fruity saison-yeast make for a damn pleasant drink. Tropical note still come through with a mouthwatering mango flavor and nice citrus note mixed in. More traditional Belgian yeast notes come along as well with a drying earthy note and subtle spice.
Mouthfeel is dry and bubbly. Overall, a new favorite of mine. Excellent use of hops here that play nicely with the farmhouse yeast for an uber-refreshing summer beverage.

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
