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.

I was excited to stumble upon this recently while traveling through Maryland... A standard pour yields a voluminous three plus fingers worth of light airy fluffy snow white head comprised of mostly huge chunky bubbles... Excellent retention... Once settled, there is a mostly full veil of lacing and moderate-to-thick collar... The color is a slightly pale mix of light straw and muted amber... A moderate bit of carbonation some of which clings to the glass and some of which rises briskly throughout... Some lacing clings to the sides of the glass as the head starts to settle... The nose is big and assertive... It's equal parts Belgian yeast blast and citrusy hop goodness... It smells like you're standing right next to the brew kettle... Vibrant lemon and orange zest... Some nice light earthy character as well... Grassy and Belgian yeast to start... A bit of an earthy hop bite throughout... Some light peppery notes on the finish... On the fuller side of light bodied... Very delicate... Limited carbonation... Airy, but not thin in any way... Just a subtle touch of dryness... Quite unique and enjoyable mouthfeel... A very unique and highly enjoyable brew... A tremendous introduction to Prairie Artisan Ales... The Saison character wins out by a bit, but the American hop presence add layers of complexity and dimension that make this a must try for any self respecting beer geek...

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.
