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.

4.74/5  rDev +10.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

Poured 25.4oz bottle into Duvel tulip.

A - Golden haze orange in color with 2 finger white head. Slowly fades with almost no ring remaining. Lacing is almost non existent.

S - Citrus and straw some light biscuit and yeast.

T - Taste is incredible. Big juicy citrus and tropical fruit with lemon. Mild spice with a Belgian yeast. Finishes with a touch or tart and bitter, but not much. This is similar to Ale Asylum Bedlam, but I like this even more.

M - Light and crisp with nice carbonation. Very refreshing.

O - This could be one of the best Saisons brewed. I wish this was distributed to WI, because I would buy it frequently in the summer months. Way to go Prairie Ales. Thank you 4balance!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Served from C&C Bottle into snifter.

A-Pours a hazy light orange color with a big pillowy white head and reasonable lacing, minimal head retention

S-Bright notes of peach, tropical fruit, light citrus and spicy herbs with a subtle fruit sweetness, really nice

T-Brilliant tangy peach, bright orange peel and a little sweet funk. Incredibly well integrated while letting the finishing hops both compliment the base beer and shine as the dominate flavor. Exceptional

M-Lively and well carbonated with a spicy, cleansing finish. Spot on for a Saison

O-I have been fortunate enough to have every offering from Prairie and (withholding an infected bottle of Noir) and while they are all exceptional, I think Prairie hop is my favorite. It's so bright and vibrant with a really nice peachy presence (Citra Hopped?) that transcends the nose and taste. It's exceptional.

look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 750 Ml. Bottle into my trusty DFH tulip.

A - Pours a hazy, golden yellow that is hard to see through, just as it should be.
An agressive pour generates 2 fingers of creamy, opaque head that sticks around for a bit, and leaves an almost angelic lacing on the glass.

S - Grass, tangerine, grapefruit, and Lemongrass greet the nose.
There's a hint of pineapple in there, as well. Why can't this beer be from Texas?
It smells so good, I want to snuggle with it, even though it is 90 degrees outside right now! (And it's after midnight...)

T - Herbal notes hit hard on the front of the palate. More Lemongrass, light lemon zest, thyme, and melon rind abound, with more blue-tip Bermuda grass (I know what it tastes like... I WAS CURIOUS!!! So HUSH.) rounding out this smooth operator. Wow. This is possibly as close to a "Nectar of The Gods" Saison as you're going to get.

M - Creamy, and lingering, with a heavy, but not overpowering carbonation. The bubbles serve to push the flavors across your palate, but not to strip, or overpower it in any way. This beer is so full, in so many ways, that words don't do it justice.

O - Possibly one of the best Saisons I have ever had... and it's from OKLAHOMA. (No offense, folks, but your near-beer gives me mononucleosis) All in all, a delight, and a true feast for ALL of the senses, as far as any beer can be concerned. Considering I started my night by taste testing a Cooper's Stout clone with Coffee whilst bottling, to get the right level of coffee in my home-brew, this beer is spot-on. (You think my palate would be wrecked by now... Thank God for mineral water.) DRINK THIS BEER NOW. If you don't, you might never forgive yourself!

Cheers,

Matt The Beer-Guy

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.
