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.

3.86/5  rDev -9.4%

Tulip glass.

A: Pours an opaque, gradiated, dark gold, with two fingers of white sand colored head sitting atop, slowly receding. Superb retention: a ring of head lasts for at least an hour, though lacing is minimal.

S: Green apple, grains, a little sweetish malt, fairly earthy notes, and a little peach and mango.

T: Rustic tasting, a little yeast and malt, fruity esters provide some variety, finishing with a mild sweetness and bitterness.

M: Medium body, light carbonation, creamy texture.

O: A nice Belgian ale. The hops are minimal, though, despite the name. Still, it's well crafted for what's there.

Pretty close to perfect,

Literally looks like fresh apple cider, cloudy and dense.

Smell is not it's strongest point, but smells musty and cloudy (if that's possible).

Taste is near perfect Farm House, slightly sour with some spice and hint of fruit.

Mouthfeel, feels like carbonated beer.

Overall, sick, literally might be a top-5 beer in my life. Big statement, i realize but i think this beer is fantastic. That said, Farm House is my favorite style.

Pours a light hazy orange. 3 fingers soapy white head. Appealing and style appropriate.

Smell is pretty fantastic. Tangerines, peaches and tropical notes. Slight mustyness with hint of spice.

Taste starts as tropical fruity, juicy hops. A slight tartness with a beady malt on the back end but still manages a dry finish.

Medium carbonation. Fairly light and refreshing on the palate.

Really easy drinker.

Pours a pink-tinged amber. Head is white, nice and foamy, great lace. Looks good; colour's a bit vague though.

Smells hoppy. Citric, zesty, fairly tart actually and a little wild. Bretty, barnyardy, hints of spice. Some currant notes and cinnamon. Sweet, touch of sour. Nice.

Tastes earthy, funky, spicy. Lots of star anise, pepper, a bit of barnyard, lemon zest, clove and a decent vanilla-tinged malt base. Pleasant, bit phenolic and a bit tangy. Nice.

Foamy, decent body. Nice texture but a bit of a pull.

Drinks quite nicely, fair freshness and zest balanced with a good earthiness. This is clever brewing, and a very nice introduction to the world of Oklahoma beer. Brew on, Sooner State.
