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.

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

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.

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a three finger light tan head that sticks around a good while before slowly reducing to a...wait a minute, it's not reducing, it's growing! I've never seen a head continue to inflate and protrude up and out of the glass before but this one did until it couldn't support itself anymore and fell over the side of the outside of the glass. I think it may have something to do with the nucleation point in the bottom of the Spiegelau glass.

S- Bright citrusy hop aroma that has a bit of sweetness from the malt. Very enjoyable and seems fresh.

T- Mildly bitter with good pine and grass notes. Certainly leans more toward the IPA side of things rather than a saison but the brightness and a bit of wheat flavor is there. Alcohol is well concealed.

M- Slightly sharp but quenching with a bit of spritziness. Medium-high carbonation and a medium body.

O- A very refreshing beer that walks the line between IPA and Saison.

Got this gem in Portland,ME at the bier cellar
A: hazy deep gold with crystal off white head and a tiny bit of lingering lace
S: tropical funk with grapefruit peel
T: upfront tart pineapple grapefruit with funk bitterness and medium dry finish
M: medium bubbles, medium thickness

Overall an easy beer to drink and buy if you ever find it

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Mostly clear golden body. Small white head. Thin collar and some wisps.

Smell - Big tropical fruit. Mango and peach. A little yeasty.

Taste - Big hop presence. Tropical and stone fruits again, but some grassier notes. Pale malt in the midrange and an herbal hop flavor in the finish. Bitter.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Medium carbonation. Kinda bitter.

Overall - Not a lot of saison here, but nice hop flavors. Should also be noted that this beer had more of a peach aroma and flavor than two other beers that claimed to have peach added to them. Good stuff.
