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.

750ml snagged at my local here waaaay up in Northern Maine poured into a tulip.

A – pours a pretty cloudy golden yellow. Some white head, which quickly dissipates

S – hmm. Lots. Sour, crisp dry apples. Some funk from the yeast (they must have a pretty unique strand though, I get this smell in all their beers that isn’t as spicy as most Belgian yeasts I’m used to), American hops.

T – more dry apples, tart strawberries, some American hops, bubblegum. Yum.

M – light to medium body and decent enough carbonation to make my mouth tingle where it should.

O – Man, am I sad to see this one go. $15 for a bottle, but I’ll probably pick up another. There’s so much going on. I think they nailed the balance on this one from sweet fruitiness to sour farmhouse. This is arguably the best saison I’ve ever had, and that’s not an exaggeration.

Got in a trade with Cyde. 750 ml bottle into tulip glass, 2013 dating stamped on the cork. Pours very hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big pineapple, peach, lemon zest, tangerine, mango, pear, apple, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, hay, grass, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop, malt, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of pineapple, peach, tangerine, lemon zest, mango, pear, apple, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, hay, grass, floral, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, peach, mango, tangerine, hay, floral, grass, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible balance and complexity of citrus/tropical hop and fruity/spicy yeast ester flavors; with a fair amount of malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, lightly slick, and crisp mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic dry hopped saison! All around great complexity and balance of citrus/tropical hops, malt, and fruity/spicy yeast esters; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.
