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.

perfectly stated packaging, opens to reveal a most excellent aroma. It pours with a rich golden straw color, crowned by dense pale head that slowly reduces to a thin ever present visually pleasing icing for this wonderful slice of rich cake. The taste is incredible, it as if someone has taken my favorite IPA and Blended it with the best of Belgian saisons. this beer left me satisfied yet wanting another like a a drug addict needing another fix.

Wow, that is a hoppy saison! The hops start smooth then kick ass on the way down. Top-notch!

Pretty close to perfect,

Literally looks like fresh apple cider, cloudy and dense.

Smell is not it's strongest point, but smells musty and cloudy (if that's possible).

Taste is near perfect Farm House, slightly sour with some spice and hint of fruit.

Mouthfeel, feels like carbonated beer.

Overall, sick, literally might be a top-5 beer in my life. Big statement, i realize but i think this beer is fantastic. That said, Farm House is my favorite style.

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.

As near a perfect beer as you can get, especially for warmer weather. Opened a bottle courtesy of regular trading partner Chocosushi. Pours a nice orange-golden color with a creamy white head. Nice lacing with a prominent ring that lasts throughout the drink. The nose reminds me of PTE ... lots of hoppy pineapple, tangerine, and citrus aromas, with just a touch of saison/farmhouse yeast. Taste follows the nose...simply fantastic! Perfect body and mouthfeel for a saison. To me, this is what a saison would be if Russian River took their recipe for PTE and made a farmhouse version. One of the best beers I have had in the past year. Extremely well done, Prairie, and I look forward to your distribution area arriving in Texas soon.
