Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: StaveHooks on 12-22-2012

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.

This cork barely needs to be touched to start popping. ? Interesting. Pours a great-looking unfiltered hazy golden/ deep yellow-orange with plenty of visible carbonation and a perfectly fluffy white header.
Hops I smelled immediately upon the uncorking. This smells fantastic. Citrusy hops, grapefruit, and yes a funk of its own. Hard to describe, to me like a barnyard peanut buttery leather (perhaps my nose's interpretation of Belgian yeast) surrounded by those fresh juicy hops.
The taste is right along the same path. The hops are juicy and then their bitterness rushes the funky part of the grainy-nut flavor through my mouth with ample carbonation and a medium/slightly thick creamy and refreshing mouthfeel. I also get a subtle herbal flourish, and orange rind is in there too. The slightly antique flavor I took as peanut butter sits well in the aftertaste, somehow. The finish is dry but right. The foam from the head is intact halfway through the chalice into which I poured this, appearing like cream. Nice. I dont recall having a beer that kept such a thick-top form. Unique brew. Recommended by local retailers here in north Texas, however I passed on it until now. Curiosity paid-off big time. Oklahoma is on the craft map here in a big way with in my opinion. This is as of now my second favorite Saison. Excellent overall. High drinkability. Seek. (1,366 characters)

perfectly stated packaging, opens to reveal a most excellent aroma. It pours with a rich golden straw color, crowned by dense pale head that slowly reduces to a thin ever present visually pleasing icing for this wonderful slice of rich cake. The taste is incredible, it as if someone has taken my favorite IPA and Blended it with the best of Belgian saisons. this beer left me satisfied yet wanting another like a a drug addict needing another fix. (448 characters)

This seemed to be a nice hybrid between an IPA and a Saison.

In a snifter the beer was a clear gold color with a very thin tan head.

Interesting aroma. Citrus, sweet malt like an IPA. Earthy hops and spice like a saison.

Lemon, orange, pineapple taste. Earthy hops. Spice.

Wow! Really tasty. Soft in the mouth. (314 characters)

Pours a hazy, vibrant orange with thin white head that slowly dissipates leaving little trace. Wonderful aroma of peaches, pineapple, mango, grass and flowers. Flavors of stone fruit, citrus and a touch of yeast. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Crisp, clean finish. Complex beer with many layers. So far I'm a fan of Prairie Artisan Ales. (354 characters)

Deep gol in color with a slight haziness in the body. Vibrant carbonation bubbles are plentiful. There's a half inch of eggshell colored minuscule sized carbonation bubbles. Aroma is comprised of sourdough bread,tropical hops and grassy saison yeast. I taste a blend of sourdough bread,tropical hops and earthy saison yeas. The tropical hops really give it a unique twist. APA meets saison. There's plenty of carbonation and the mouth is crisp and refreshing. (465 characters)
