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.

As near a perfect beer as you can get, especially for warmer weather. Opened a bottle courtesy of regular trading partner Chocosushi. Pours a nice orange-golden color with a creamy white head. Nice lacing with a prominent ring that lasts throughout the drink. The nose reminds me of PTE ... lots of hoppy pineapple, tangerine, and citrus aromas, with just a touch of saison/farmhouse yeast. Taste follows the nose...simply fantastic! Perfect body and mouthfeel for a saison. To me, this is what a saison would be if Russian River took their recipe for PTE and made a farmhouse version. One of the best beers I have had in the past year. Extremely well done, Prairie, and I look forward to your distribution area arriving in Texas soon.

look: 3.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Bought in the pint bottle, served slightly chilled in a mug that was probably not meant to host a saison. Oh well.

Appearance: Huge head. Four fingers. From the top kind of looks like a marshmallow that's been on a campfire too long (without the burn), but it's a lovely color similar to cantaloupe. Hazy with heavy carbonation.

Smell: Very aromatic, could smell very clearly while I was pouring. Slightly sour smell, only a hint of hops. Floral and fruity.

Taste: Surprisingly not nearly as strong as the smell. Has the typical funk on the finish, but otherwise only a faint tartness on the middle of the tongue. Pleasant.

Mouthfeel: Thinner than expected, but the carbonation is less heavy than it appears, which is a pleasant surprise.

Overall: Pleasant if not quite the flavor bomb I was expecting. A decent representation of the style. Perhaps an entry level representation, but I don't claim to know much of this particular style.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

White head with some lace left. Color is a hazy golden orange.

Flavor profile: very fruity and hoppy. Clementines, tangerines, and oranges. Floral and pine hops. Kind of herbal. Belgian yeast with some dryness. It has grape like flavors with some tannins. A light amount of barnyard funk.

Mouthfeel: smooth with a slight bitterness. Kind of funky. Lighter bodied. Nice carbonation. Ends a little dry.

Overall, a really solid saison. I loved how fruity and hoppy this one was. Very drinkable!

Pours a hazy gold with a bubbly white head. Huge aroma of tropical fruits, yeast and piney hops. Easily one of the best aromas I've come across. Tangerine, pineapple and mango stand out. There's a touch of spice, and the hops give it a decent bitterness. Medium mouth with a carbonated crispness. The other dry-hopped saisons I've tried were middling, at best. This one is juicy and flavorful.

Pours a bright golden orange with a shimmering off-white head. Sour grapefruit goodness to the nose. Orange and lemon zest with a little sugar and spice and other light, ripe fruits too. Tastes of lemon, Belgian yeast and grain with a fine hop finish. Dry as can be and a little crackery in the end. So fine. So fine.
