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.

4.3/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.25

25.4 oz. bottle poured into tulip
2013 on cork

L: perfect. misty gold/orange with white foam for days ... the head is classic Belgian farmhouse, a pile of cotton balls, and it's super sticky; you can see the effervescence in the column (it's just clear enough), and the whole thing is just a show, man ... and what a show!

S: strawberries, rasberries, sour grapes, white whie ... lots of sweetness in with the tart/sour farmhouse note; yeast ... and bread dough

T: yes! strawberries, rasberries, grapes, sour grapes, white wine, some sweetness, some tartness ... my gosh. and now back there behind all that are hops, lots of them, American hops, too, with some floral/citrus flavors and a bitter backbone. if it were a pinch less bitter, it might be perfect (for me); as it is, damn ... this thing is good.

F: mesmerized by look, smell, flavor, it's hard not to say the mouthfeel is perfect. classic Belgian again, loads of carbonation but not harsh, rip-your-tongue-off carbonation ... it's bubbly and full but just soft enough to feel right (possibly TOO right ... i'm wanting to suck it down like water!)

O: now *this* is a true Belgian-American hybrid. it's mixing several quality Belgian notes with some nice American hop notes to create a fantastic saison. and the amazing thing: nothing is overdone. it's not a hop salad, not super sweet, not overly tart, not too murky, not antiseptic clear ... it's a pinch over my favorite bitter line, but it's NOT too bitter, not even close.

easy to see why so many like this brew. it's freaking good.
