Notes & Commercial Description:
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.

750 ml bottle corked and caged poured into a 3 Floyds wine glass

A- Allot of carbonation, 3 finger head dissipated quickly, to thin bubbly ring around the glass. The color is a beautiful burnt orange/brown, slight haziness.
S- The aroma is very nice, big hops upfront, nice sweetness comes out in the aroma, must be the citra hops. Mango, grapefruit, pine, grapefruit, some malt in the backend.
T- Taste is very similar to the nose, less sweet than i anticipated, the hops are present, slight bitterness but is mellowed out by the malt backbone, grassy notes, pine, grapefruit, slight peppery notes.
M- Light mouthfeel, very easy drinkability, dry on the finish.
O- Very nice, not sure what i was expecting, i was not expecting it to be so hop forward, i very much enjoyed this one, would of preferred to share with someone, not a beer i would typically drink on my own. Very satisfied with my first Prairie beer.

750ml 25.4 Oz. bottle. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

Appearance: Cloudy golden yellow with nice initial 3" head that recedes to a cap but leaves lots of sticky lacing.

Smell: Lots of floral hops, but not overpowering as some citrus is also noticeable.

Taste: Nice tropical fruits, tangerine, lemon, lime, all with a floral hoppy bitterness. Balanced very well against a malty backbone. All about the tasty citrusy hops with this beer.

Mouthfeel: Clean and crisp on the palate.

Overall: Delicious beer, especially on a warm afternoon. Looking forward to trying more from Prairie.

A- Pours a hazy golden orange with a billowing white head of large bubbles that leaves spotty lacing

S- The aroma is a bit confusing as it first smells like a bright citrusy IPA, but that is followed by light barnyard funk, grains, and farmhouse yeast. There are some nice melon notes as well.

T- Taste is melony and yeasty, with a good bit of grain flavor as well. Some grassiness and floral notes come through.

M- The mouthfeel is medium with a ton of effervescent carbonation.

O- Overall this is a very nice saison, though it could use some more pronounced/defined flavors.

A: Light golden color. Cloudy and pours with a thick 2 finger head that quickly dissipates.

S: The hops come through cleanly in the smell. Citrusy with a slight floral character.

T: Clean and crisp. Alcohol well hidden, and hops are perfectly balanced with the citrus elements. Very well composed Saison with a bit more hop than typical of the style. Interested to see how the hops mellow out after time with a aged bottle.

F: Light bodied with medium to high levels of carbonation

O: Great saison. I am always slightly skeptical of new breweries. However, this beer makes me want to go out and buy everything that Prairie has out.
