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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a hazy, vibrant orange with thin white head that slowly dissipates leaving little trace. Wonderful aroma of peaches, pineapple, mango, grass and flowers. Flavors of stone fruit, citrus and a touch of yeast. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Crisp, clean finish. Complex beer with many layers. So far I'm a fan of Prairie Artisan Ales.

Bottle poured into a Fantome tulip.

Pour: Body is a hazy amber orange with three fingers of frothy, off white head. Some lacing, and the head recedes to a thick rim.

Smell: Immediately after popping the cork, bright juicy grapefruit, mango, and pineapple aromas spilled out of the bottle. More on the pour. Some doughy belgian yeast, and peppercorns. A touch of clove.

Taste: Much more grassy and floral than the nose lets on. Doughy yeast, white peppercorn, clove, and some citrus. Finishes grassy with a lingering hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Rather more bitter than I anticipated. Heavier body than I expected.

Overall: A nice dry hopped saison that I really enjoyed, but I won't be getting it again

750ml bottle.

Pours clear and straw colored with a two inch head of spongy, porous white. A solid skim coat on the surface and plenty of stringy lacing for the duration.

The nose leads off with a lush blend of tropical fruit and cut grass. Pears, mango, apples, and pineapples with wet hay, clove dust, and hints of pine dew with bubblegum.

Light bodied with a soft, slightly crisp mouthfeel.

Ripe, citrus-laden fruit and pine start the palate. Cut grass rubbed with light spice and pineapple skin follows through.

Finishes with a lingering, dry finish with plenty of tropical and farmhouse notes.

Great beer. Big Saison character under loads of tropical hops.

Reviewed 06/27/13 22 OZ Bomber in tulip.

A - Pours a hazy gold with orangey hues and a two finger head fluffy off white head. Some lacing.

S - Tropical fruits, Peach, Mango, and Apricot upfront but Peach dominates. Hints of citrus and spice. As the beer warms I begin to pick up some coconut. I really liked the smell at first but Peach and Coconut began to dominate the more it warmed, which I didn't enjoy nearly as much.

T - Tropical fruits and Peach/Apricot upfront. Tastes almost like it was brewed with or aged on Peaches or Apricots. Notes of pepper and spice in there as well and some malt. No bitterness at first but start to get a bit as the beer warms.

M - Light body, medium to high carbonation, dry.

O - Interesting and pretty good Saison. It was just too overwhelmingly peachy/fruity which started to get to me after awhile. This prevents me from putting it with my top Saisons.

750ml C&C bottle poured into a tulip.

Appearance
Golden orange with 1-2 fingers of loose, white head. Slightly cloudy with low carbonation and decent retention.

Nose
Peach, apricot, pineapple, lemon, dried grass. and pink peppercorn. Exceedingly aromatic and tropical.

Taste
Wow! Peach, apricot, mango, pineapple and drops of lemon juice. Light pilsner malts, dried grass and a light blanket of barnyard funk. Caramel covered grains with touches of spelt, pine, peppercorn and perfumey florals.

Mouthfeel
Light-medium bodied, crisp and dry.

Overall
A beautiful marriage between a sublime American IPA and a fastastically rustic Belgian Saison. My hats off to Prairie Artisan Ales!

Ohhh this beer pretty much melts in my mouth. Its absolutely beautiful - I am in love with this beer. It pours a very hazy burnt orange with a vital 2 inch head. It tastes like amber honey after its been warmed in the sun - The taste is smooth, perky with a beautiful balance of malt and hops.

Honestly, this beer tastes like what the nectar of the God's must taste like. It makes me want to cry I can't get it where I live!!! Trading partners???? If you're out there, find me.
