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.

Another great looking bottle from Prairie.

Pours a thick toffee color with a nice head; head fades pretty quickly though.

Smells of grassy hops and sweet fruit: I get peaches, bananas, other tropical fruit. Lovely aroma.

Taste is a little different: less sweetness for sure, a fair amount of bitter hops up front, but again a very strong dose of peach, some other fruit, some grassy hops. This is a really unique flavor profile, never had a hoppy beer with quite so much peach flavor before.

Mouthfeel is good, lots of carbonation and very drinkable.

Another great beer from Prairie, and maybe the most original of the bunch. Super fruity hops and overall a very well balanced beer. Good stuff, I'm really impressed by this brewery!

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.

The beer pours a clear golden with a very thin white head. The nose is citrus hoppy with a touch of bubble gum and mint. The taste is definitely yeasty with a great underlying slightly floral/citrusy bitterness. The mouthfeel is light-medium with a great hoppiness that lingers. This is a great beer that keeps a great hoppiness throughout drinking with great Belgian yeast characteristics. I'd recommend this beer for others to try, especially of you enjoyed bitter monk.

Appearance is a dark amber. Smells of pine, very nice. Grapefruit. As an inexperienced hop head, how should I put this, it has the taste of some great IPA's ive had in the past, with a very good aftertaste. I know what tastes good and what tastes bad when it comes to IPA's and this is high up there on the list of yummy tasting stuff. Nothing bad about this beer's flavor in my opinion, taste is a subjective thing, I know. Try it, I don't think you'll be let down. I recently had a Lagunitas Hop Stoopid and would rank it on about the same level, if that helps. Great beer.

750ml served into a 22oz snifter.

A - Hazy golden amber color with 1 finger of micro bubbles that form a tight cap.

S - Fresh green grass, loads of floral hops, pepper, perfumy alcohol, spiced bubblegum, tropical fruit, pineapple, sweet malts, apples, grapefruit peel

T - Spicy yeast, leafy herbal hops, lots of floral, snappy citrus, pine, sweet rich malt underneath, pineapple, lavender, the finish is long with a grassy herbal bitterness.

M - Light to medium body, low carbonation, smooth light flowy feel,

While I appreciate this beer I'm not in love with the hop profile, tongue numbing floral and too much to have more than 1 glass.
