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.

A cellar temperature 750ml bottle is poured into a McChouffe chalice.

This is a clear orange beer with lots of rising carbonation. The head is off-white and fairly thin. It also didn't last very long. After a minute it is nothing more than a skim of foam.

Very nice citrus hop aroma. I can pick up a little bit of farmhouse yeast, but almost all of the aroma is dominated by the hops.

Like the aroma, this beer's flavor profile is dominated by grapefruit citrus hops. The malt and yeast do contribute, but it is minor. The malt is light enough and the yeast is just funky enough to remind you this is a farmhouse ale and note a hoppy pale. Hop oils and pepper form the yeast give the beer a great finish.

This may be a touch heavier than a typical saison and the carbonation is strong. There is a noticeable coat, but it isn't too sticky. The finish provides a slight tingle.

I like this beer. Dry hopping has made this a very interesting farmhouse ale. Fans of the style should seek this one out! I would have preferred better head retention, but the flavor and aroma are good enough for me to ignore my issues with its appearance. (1,137 characters)

A lot of tropical fruit and citrus hops flavors. Solidly bitter. A moderate spice from the yeast. (97 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)

Looks and feels like a tripel, but tastes like a blend between that and a saison. I would have expected the dry-hopping to add more floral notes to this, but instead it seems to have mellowed it somewhat. There is an interesting amount of hops late in the swallow, however. Solid entry from Prairie Artisan Ales, in my opinion. (328 characters)
