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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle into a Bell's tulip. The pour is crystal clear and gold in color with a rather thin head. Really great nose on this beer. Fresh, juicy oranges, pineapples, and lemons. It almost smells like a nice IPA.

Light to medium body with a firm feel. It may smell like an IPA, but it drinks like the Saison that it is. The flavor is very grainy and wheaty up front with some tart citrus notes. At mid-palate, it dries out substantially and becomes very flowery with hints of bitter hops. There is a faint tart funkiness on the finish that goes very well with the citrusy hops and dry character.

This is a wonderful beer that should appeal both to fans of Saisons and fans of American Pale Ales. Very refreshing and easy-drinking, but with a fair amount of complexity. My main grip is that I feel this beer could use more carbonation. I will be drinking this again.

Pours a hazy, vibrant orange with thin white head that slowly dissipates leaving little trace. Wonderful aroma of peaches, pineapple, mango, grass and flowers. Flavors of stone fruit, citrus and a touch of yeast. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Crisp, clean finish. Complex beer with many layers. So far I'm a fan of Prairie Artisan Ales.

Bottle poured into a Fantome tulip.

Pour: Body is a hazy amber orange with three fingers of frothy, off white head. Some lacing, and the head recedes to a thick rim.

Smell: Immediately after popping the cork, bright juicy grapefruit, mango, and pineapple aromas spilled out of the bottle. More on the pour. Some doughy belgian yeast, and peppercorns. A touch of clove.

Taste: Much more grassy and floral than the nose lets on. Doughy yeast, white peppercorn, clove, and some citrus. Finishes grassy with a lingering hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Rather more bitter than I anticipated. Heavier body than I expected.

Overall: A nice dry hopped saison that I really enjoyed, but I won't be getting it again

750ml bottle.

Pours clear and straw colored with a two inch head of spongy, porous white. A solid skim coat on the surface and plenty of stringy lacing for the duration.

The nose leads off with a lush blend of tropical fruit and cut grass. Pears, mango, apples, and pineapples with wet hay, clove dust, and hints of pine dew with bubblegum.

Light bodied with a soft, slightly crisp mouthfeel.

Ripe, citrus-laden fruit and pine start the palate. Cut grass rubbed with light spice and pineapple skin follows through.

Finishes with a lingering, dry finish with plenty of tropical and farmhouse notes.

Great beer. Big Saison character under loads of tropical hops.

Reviewed 06/27/13 22 OZ Bomber in tulip.

A - Pours a hazy gold with orangey hues and a two finger head fluffy off white head. Some lacing.

S - Tropical fruits, Peach, Mango, and Apricot upfront but Peach dominates. Hints of citrus and spice. As the beer warms I begin to pick up some coconut. I really liked the smell at first but Peach and Coconut began to dominate the more it warmed, which I didn't enjoy nearly as much.

T - Tropical fruits and Peach/Apricot upfront. Tastes almost like it was brewed with or aged on Peaches or Apricots. Notes of pepper and spice in there as well and some malt. No bitterness at first but start to get a bit as the beer warms.

M - Light body, medium to high carbonation, dry.

O - Interesting and pretty good Saison. It was just too overwhelmingly peachy/fruity which started to get to me after awhile. This prevents me from putting it with my top Saisons.

750ml C&C bottle poured into a tulip.

Golden orange with 1-2 fingers of loose, white head. Slightly cloudy with low carbonation and decent retention.

Peach, apricot, pineapple, lemon, dried grass. and pink peppercorn. Exceedingly aromatic and tropical.

Wow! Peach, apricot, mango, pineapple and drops of lemon juice. Light pilsner malts, dried grass and a light blanket of barnyard funk. Caramel covered grains with touches of spelt, pine, peppercorn and perfumey florals.

Light-medium bodied, crisp and dry.

A beautiful marriage between a sublime American IPA and a fastastically rustic Belgian Saison. My hats off to Prairie Artisan Ales!

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.

Pours a malty amber brown with decent clarity and a nice finger of foam. Nose hasbright notes of citrus, spicy yeast esters, white pepper, lemon grass and a light funk. The beer really pops in the mouth, complex melon, watermelon, canteloupe are bright and big. Light pepper spice along with a suttle yeastiness which lets the melon and citrus shine. Slight earthiness rounds out this very complex well made brew. Easy to drink with the 7% barely noticeable.

This one pours a light bodied, very cloudy and somewhat milky gold in color with a one finger, very soapy white head. The nose is in your face pineapple and Belgian yeast paired with a nice level of grassy hoppiness. Great nose. The flavors are bright and hoppy with excellent grassiness, lemon, grapefruit, and it finishes with a pineapple bomb of fruit character in the finish that dominates the after taste. I don't think I've ever seen that much pineapple in any saison. It is very unique and more importantly, incredibly good. You don't notice the 7% at all either, making this one dangerous and overly drinkable. This is my first Prairie experience and it blew me away. This is an incredibly flavorful and special saison. I highly recommend it.

Corked and caged 750 ml bottle with label somewhat reminicent of Pretty Things.

A: Opens with a robust pop and pours a hazy yellow-orange with a solid two-finger fine white head which slowly fades to a cap leaving rings and spotty lace.

N: Wonderful fruity peaches, mango, and tangerine citrus and tropicals, with a slight belgian yeasty note. Floral, herbal/grassy.

T: Bready yeast, mildly pepper spice, citrus peel, melon fruit, trace funk. Liquid sunshine.

M: Medium body and moderate carbonation. Dry and yeasty finish.

O: Blending of Simcoe and Citra hops lend an IPA-ish quality while the yeast and spices balance the traditional saison/farmhouse style. Really nice and would have again.

Pours a light to medium hazy sunny color, bright white finger of head nice ample lacing and good retention. The aroma kicks off with a flowery, grassy, herbal hop note, with touches of soft citrus, but with a noticeable spicy yeast note, slight funkiness, pale sweetness. Taste marries a flowery, grassy ipa beautifully with a light and crisp, slightly funky, bready and musky Saison. Nice peppery yeast notes and musk. It's not too effervescent, but lighter in body, nice refreshing quality.

Fantastic hoppy Saison. The hop notes were perfect to compliment the rustic nature of the Saison.

A: Pours a hazy orange. Big, fluffy and effervescent white head. Head fades away at a moderate pace, leaving just little spots of lacing. Quite nice head retention.

S: Wow, not much saison. Very IPA-like. Belgian IPA more than anything. Nice tropical fruit notes with mango, pineapple and apricot maybe? Spicy black pepper in there too. Some sweet grains too. Wonderful fruity, refreshing aroma. I couldn't stop smelling this one.

T: Again with the tropical fruits up front, as mentioned in the aroma. In the middle there is a crackery malt with black pepper joining it. Finish is black pepper and remnants of the tropical fruits with a minor wave of bitterness joining it. A little drying on the back end.

M: Medium bodied, higher carbonation makes this one SLIGHTLY thin.

O: Really nice saison. Great cross of styles, it's halfway between a belgian IPA and a saison. Nice pepper and tropical fruit notes that compliment each other. Nice balance of flavors and it goes quite well. Delicious.

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

A: Pours a translucent orange hued amber, with a small amount of dense white head. This dissipates to just a film on the surface and a ring around the glass, which leaves spotty lacing.

S: Densely floral and fruity, lots of smells to go around. The overall effect is definitely strong, but still pleasant.

T: Lightly sweet and very fruity. Strong hops throughout, becoming particularly noticeable towards the finish, but more of the grassy and fruity notes; there is bitterness, but it is reasonably well balanced for an IPA. The flavors are good and well structured from start to finish.

M: Medium to full body, medium carbonation.

Overall, nice, and different. Try it.

Pours a deep orange, nearly brown. Quite murky. The off-white head kicks up a finger or two of foam, but it quickly fades to a smattering of bubbles. Aroma is full of wonderful saison complexity. There's a big earthy note, really nice. The hops contribute grassy and floral flavors that blend into the beer without dominating it. A blend of fruity flavors also crop up - pears, grapes, apricots, plums, lemons, persimmons, pineapples. The taste isn't quite as strong as the Prairie Ale, which hit pretty much all the right saison notes for me. There's just a touch too much malt sweetness, but it's still quite good. Lots of spicy, grassy hop flavor comes across on the tongue. Also, more musty, barnyardy character than in the aroma. The malt just isn't quite as bright or crisp as I'd like, but it's still tasty. Just not quite up to the other flavors. Good grassy, herbal hop finish. Almost a bit minty. Good champagne-ish feel. Lots of fine bubbles. Full. I prefer Prairie Ale by just a bit, but this is another excellent beer from this young brewery. Very impressive work.

About as merky and yeast filled a light beer can be. Each pour explodes from the glass with champagne levels of carbonation but the weight and body quickly leave the beer flat and dense.

Grape fruit hops meet saison spice and deep citrus almost sour notes.

One amazing combination between the classic saison and american hops. Grape fruit meets lemon rides, mangos, passion fruit, lemon grass, over ripe fruits, and so much more. This is an over ripe fruit cocktail for sure.

Drinks to near perfect. Perfect carbonation, perfect slightly creamy feel without the weight often associated.

This is a beer to seek out. Easily one of the best American IPA/Belgian style beers I've had, and it seems everyone is trying their hands at it.

A cellar temperature 750ml bottle is poured into a McChouffe chalice.

This is a clear orange beer with lots of rising carbonation. The head is off-white and fairly thin. It also didn't last very long. After a minute it is nothing more than a skim of foam.

Very nice citrus hop aroma. I can pick up a little bit of farmhouse yeast, but almost all of the aroma is dominated by the hops.

Like the aroma, this beer's flavor profile is dominated by grapefruit citrus hops. The malt and yeast do contribute, but it is minor. The malt is light enough and the yeast is just funky enough to remind you this is a farmhouse ale and note a hoppy pale. Hop oils and pepper form the yeast give the beer a great finish.

This may be a touch heavier than a typical saison and the carbonation is strong. There is a noticeable coat, but it isn't too sticky. The finish provides a slight tingle.

I like this beer. Dry hopping has made this a very interesting farmhouse ale. Fans of the style should seek this one out! I would have preferred better head retention, but the flavor and aroma are good enough for me to ignore my issues with its appearance.

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden/orange color. A beautiful color. Two fingers of white head forms with good retention and lace.
S: The nose is huge. At first big floral, herbal, and grassy aromatics. Fruity esters follow banana, pears, and slightly funky yeast. The aroma is so amazing, full, and so balanced between the hops and yeast. Prairie Hop indeed, just an amazing huge nose that is perfectly hoppy and rustic at the same time.
T: Follows the nose, though not quit as intense. Still excellent. Floral, grassy, herbal hops all intermingle with the fruity, (mango, pears) and slightly phenolic yeast. Very earthy. A light funk, and again near perfect balance of hops and rustic charm.
M/D: A medium body that is perfectly carbonated. Very crisp, but smooth at the same time. There is enough dryness to to pull at the checks, which make this incredibly refreshing. So easy to drink. Something that is hard not come back to. Nearly perfect for the style and something that can be enjoyed all day.

This is an amazing hoppy saison. They nailed the style, and one of my favorite American versions at that. Tank 7 and Saison Brett are among my favorites, and this is just as good. I guess there is a new contestant for great American saisons. Well done.

New brewery showed up at the store, with Belgian style Farmhouse beers, which I love these days. And not too expensive, with decent reviews, so I had to get the two. I'll try the Hop first.

Wow, the really twisted the handle of the crown, it probably has about 15 twists and almost impossible to turn now. Then it got twisted on itself, so needle nose pliers made quick work of it.

Finally pours a pasty white bubbly fizzy almost 1 finger head that fades at a med pace, some decent lacing, semi clear a little hazy golden honey color.

Nose is quite nice, a blend of floral hops and farmhouse aromas. I'll start with the farmhouse saison aromas, wheat, grainy malts, hay, dried grass, lemon zest, light spices, a very light farmhouse funk, and a light fluffy Belgian golden malt. Then hops, floral, light leafy grassy, a bit of a citrus zest, slightly herbal. Some earthiness too between the funky saison yeast and grassy hops. Lemony citrus aromas eventually end up taking over mostly as it warms and swirls in my glass.

Taste starts with the saison funk, little funky yeast then quickly into the saison malts, grassy wheat, fresh cut grass, dried hay, floral lemon grass, etc. It also brings light golden Belgian malts, a little grainy malt base, a light sweetness and juicy feel. Saison also brings light spices, lemon zest and citrus spray, and a little yeasty farmhouse funk flavors. Then into hops, floral fresh hops, lighter but nice, light leafy grassy flavors, little earthy and touch spicy, as well as a bit of the citrus, lemon zest and touch of fresh orange flesh. The bitterness starts light but ramps a bit as it goes, as the hops progress they get slightly spicy and earthy, chewy even. The finish gets a bit drier but still slightly sticky, long fairly bitter hop, little earthy, some leafy and grassy, with light saison grainy malts, lemongrass, hay, and light saison funk and spices.

Mouth is med bodied, lots of fluffy carbonation, juicy feeling.

Overall pretty nice, a well done saison and nice fresh hops to go with it. The hops go well with teh saison as expected, nice grassy little leafy and floral, some lemony citrus zest, and just enough bitterness. the saison flavors are on nicely too, not too much funk which would have overpowered the subtle hops, drinkable and tasty, well done. I would drink quite a few of these no problem (not in a row of course).

Putting together what's best about authentic farmhouse ale and the newest technique in hop implementation has not only put Prairie on the brewing map, but makes them excel!

And like those classy and rustic saisons, Prairie hop explodes its cork and comes racing into the tulip with exuberant carbonation and near-champagne appearances. It quickly constructs a cottony, airy white head that caps the zesty lightly golden ale beneath. Firm lace and high retention keeps the beer looking regal throughout.

Beautifully aromatic, the beer weaves together the earthy and floral traditional scents of saison with the tropical and citrus notes of today's better sculpted IPA. The fusion gives the nose new impressions with each whiff: mild grapefruit, mangoes, oranges, passion fruit, apricot, apples and lemon all take turn on a carousel of scents. Peppery spice allows notes of lemongrass and lemon pepper to emit just ahead of terse grain sweetness and damp hay.

Flavors reward the palate with all of the juicy and vibrant fruit taste that was introduced in the nose, but without the sweetness that's normally associated with those ripe flavors. Instead the dry malt complexes provide light grain sweetness and mild bread starch. Notions of honeysuckle come to mind as the beer transitions from malt to hops. But the taste of tropical and citrus fruits are a direct carryover from the floral bouquet and seems to be appreciated more in aftertaste than on the middle palate. Finishing herbal, flowery, and pleasantly grassy, the beer turns to clean and crisp bitterness, stopping just shy of IPA proportion.

But the beer's highest praise belongs with its mouthfeel. Its early arid creaminess offers soft impressions but the beer wastes no time developing into dryness and shedding its malt underpinnings. The finish comes quick and in bone-dry fashion. Its spritzy character bounces the beer off of the mouth and carries it into the gullet with ease. Medium warmth, light grassy bite, and prickling carbonation signal closure and encourage a quick revisit to the glass.

The beer is masterful as it really does strike the perfect balance between what's best about properly constructed saison and experimental new-wave hops. Its a delicious beer, making drinkability effortless.

750ml C&C bottle into a tall tulip. I think it's worth noting pliers would be helpful to get the cage out and a wine bottle opener to get the cork out. Seriously a hard beer to get to.

A: Pours a very clear deep golden color with three inches of foam on top. Active carbonation is apparent in the beer.

S: The yeast character here is really nice. I get tons of tropical fruits - pineapple, guava, and persimmon. A nice funkiness comes in after the fruit - musty and a bit grassy. A tropical fruity hop aroma goes very well with the yeast here. Stone fruit is quite strong. One of the best aromas I've come across in a Saison.

T: The flavor starts out with a grassiness followed by a mild musty funk and a hint of stone fruit. Moderate hop bitterness is evident with a small amount of caramel sweetness. I get a peppercorn spiciness in the aftertaste.

M: Medium to thick mouthfeel with appropriately high carbonation for the style.

O: The aroma on this is heavenly - seriously amazing. The flavor is good, but is a huge letdown after the smell.

I picked up a few bottles while in Norman for business and I'm very glad I got them. Onto the review.

A - Prairie Hop has a cloudy golden color, almost a straw color. Poured into a Dogfish head glass and it left a small amount of lacing.

S - On the nose I get a nice fruitiness, ripe citrus, grapefuit and lemon, and plenty of hoppy goodness.

T - On the palate I get the fruit I smelled on the nose, grapefruit and some lemon, maybe even a little orange. There is a slight sweetness on the finish to go along with the pine from the hops, very well balanced, maybe leaning just a little more on the hop side.

M - Full-bodied and rich on the palate, and the carbonation is just right.

O - A very well done Belgian style beer, reminds me of a Belgian IPA. It is a very well done saison/farmhouse ale that offers so much more than just a typical saison, as I stated before, I really would have guessed this more to be an unfiltered Belgian style IPA. Very well done, and I hope they keep making more!

Opens with a resounding pop! Love the label on these beers

Pours a chill-hazed bronze/amber with a thumb of ivory colored head. Below average head retention & lacing

S: Hay, wet grass, faint lemon & just a bit of dirt/funk. Apple peels as this warms, some coriander & white pepper, plus some apple pie & pear notes

T: Grapefruit, lemongrass, a touch of apricot hiding in the background, along with some tangerine & a touch of funk up front. Green apple peels, funk, grassyness, lemons & grapefruit as this warms, some white pepper & cilantro notes. Finishes with spicy hops, grapefruit, funkyness in subtle doses, apple peel & orange peel

MF: Light/medium bodied, slight carbonation, nicely balanced

I like this, very drinkable. This to me, is like Tank 7's slightly smaller brother, a little less in your face with the hops & a touch more funkyness, a bit more overall finesse

Another great looking bottle from Prairie.

Pours a thick toffee color with a nice head; head fades pretty quickly though.

Smells of grassy hops and sweet fruit: I get peaches, bananas, other tropical fruit. Lovely aroma.

Taste is a little different: less sweetness for sure, a fair amount of bitter hops up front, but again a very strong dose of peach, some other fruit, some grassy hops. This is a really unique flavor profile, never had a hoppy beer with quite so much peach flavor before.

Mouthfeel is good, lots of carbonation and very drinkable.

Another great beer from Prairie, and maybe the most original of the bunch. Super fruity hops and overall a very well balanced beer. Good stuff, I'm really impressed by this brewery!

Served from C&C Bottle into snifter.

A-Pours a hazy light orange color with a big pillowy white head and reasonable lacing, minimal head retention

S-Bright notes of peach, tropical fruit, light citrus and spicy herbs with a subtle fruit sweetness, really nice

T-Brilliant tangy peach, bright orange peel and a little sweet funk. Incredibly well integrated while letting the finishing hops both compliment the base beer and shine as the dominate flavor. Exceptional

M-Lively and well carbonated with a spicy, cleansing finish. Spot on for a Saison

O-I have been fortunate enough to have every offering from Prairie and (withholding an infected bottle of Noir) and while they are all exceptional, I think Prairie hop is my favorite. It's so bright and vibrant with a really nice peachy presence (Citra Hopped?) that transcends the nose and taste. It's exceptional.

The beer pours a clear golden with a very thin white head. The nose is citrus hoppy with a touch of bubble gum and mint. The taste is definitely yeasty with a great underlying slightly floral/citrusy bitterness. The mouthfeel is light-medium with a great hoppiness that lingers. This is a great beer that keeps a great hoppiness throughout drinking with great Belgian yeast characteristics. I'd recommend this beer for others to try, especially of you enjoyed bitter monk.
