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.

Poured this 16.9 oz brown bottle into a Sierra Nevada hops glass. No date. The body was golden an a bit cloudy. The big brittle head was white and left a cap of foam.

The smell was earthy. Belgian yeast and leafy hops.

The taste was of earthy hops, grassy. Unripe pears. Drying but light bitterness.

The mouthfeel was thinner than expected.

Serving: 22 oz bottle poured into a Riedel Vinum Bordeaux glass.

Appearance: Hazy, straw yellow with a rocky white head. A thin layer of froth lingers throughout with some lacing.

Smell: Some sweet, bready malt with citrus, herbal hops, Belgian yeast and a bit of tart funk.

Taste: Very clean and refreshing; delicately malty body (less than in the nose) and light, fruity tartness, with a crisp and dry, slightly medicinal, hoppy bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Light body and lively carbonation.

Overall: Bright, refreshing saison, layered with hoppy and fruity notes. No hint of its 8% ABV.

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

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a yellow color and a cloudy consistency. There was a huge, creamy, long-lasting head. Below average lacing.

S: A nice aroma of light fruit, yeast, spices, and malt.

T: Tasted of yeast, light hops, malt, tropical fruit (mango), and spices. A surprisingly subtle flavor that gets better as you go along. It doesn't jump out at you, but it has a definite complexity.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A well made and easy to drink saison. Not quite as aggressive as some of the style, but definitely tasty.
