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.

Turbid orange body with a massive massive white head. Like three fingers+. Stiff peaks. Seriously, I blew on it and it formed a wavecurl and held.

You can tell right away that the yeast is going to play an integral part in this movie: sweet belgian, crisp tart apples are the dominant note here. Some lemon.

Starts off sweet following the apple/lemon blueprint laid out by the nose, but takes a sharp detour into... like baked almond biscotti? Yeah, that reminds me of my classmate's dad's biscotti. NOT what I was expecting. Also, I'm not a huge fan of biscotti in general. I know, I know. Almond gives way and it rededicates to the yeast and hop bitterness of grassy lemon and apple and a slight tart funkiness.
Finish is at once yeasty sweet and sharply bitter.
A unique one per my experience. Probably wouldn't grab it again, but I could see how this would work for some folk
