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.

Pours a nice cloudy orange with short white foam. Looks nice, Not a ton of carbonation. Nose is grapefruit. Nice dry with a slight bitterness, just what I'd expect from the style. I feel a bit of the heat from this. Very slight funk taste, less than expected> very crisp and drinkable. Would drink again but I much prefer the Prairie Ale...

Poured from a bottle into a tulip

A. Pours a mostly transparent golden color with a big fluffy white head.

S. Yeasty, lemony. Characteristic for a saison.

T. Nice. Yeasty but not too funky. White grape, maybe apricot or peach. Not overwhelmingly fruity. Slight bitterness. Green apple andgrassy aftertaste. It had that nice bit of hop bitterness and resin. The finish is pretty clean.

M. Body is a 4 on a 1-10 scale. Nice crisp carbonation. A sought warming going down. Finishes just slightly dry much like a green apple.

O. A very nice saison. Not too funky. Nice mild fruitiness. Very nice mouthfeel. Finishes with just enough flavor to make you go back for more. Gets better as it warms a little. Will drink again.

Clear shiny golden with a small frothy head that doesn't seem to go away to soon.
Smells funky, with some lemon sourness. Hay, herbs, grass, cream, nice orchard fruit (pear, quince, yellow apple), bit of apricot, cherry plum, even tropical hints. A hint of brandy warmth up the nostrils.
There's a great yeasty complexity here, complemented by the hops. Initially, rich orchard fruit, like fresh pear, apple (hints of cider), peach, leading to some musty white grape and even a bit of mango juice. Rich citrus too, getting bitter and bitter, from light tangerine to grapefruit. Light grainy backbone, with a nice splash of honey to help all the flavors stick. The saison funk marries perfectly with the grassy hop, giving off a really strong "field" taste (aside of a light moldy feel), with herbs, green barley, straw, lemongrass, peppermint and lots(!) of floral notes, dry and perfumey to go along with the bitter dry finish. That's not all, there's also clove and some white pepper, trying to shine along with the funk.
Medium body, smooth carbonation. Aftertaste is rich with spices, funky grass, apple peel, citrus peel, light tropical fruit and a bit of alcoholic warmth that reminds of mixed fruit schnapps.
This is not just a hop driven saison, it's a monster of saison with hops integrated perfectly. They never steal the show, only complement the yeasty complexity. Awesome on so many levels.
