deekyn (1037) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 4, 2013
A - pours hazy glowing light orange straw with 1 finger white head. Nice retention and sticky lacing. S - musty grasses/pineapple/lemon zest. Now I know what Nelson hops smell like. Musty and resiny grasses and pineapple. Lightly soapy. Bready and yeasty. M - light body with a fuller finish. Average carb. Sweet light finish with simple bitterness. T - follows the nose well. Musty resiny Nelson hops roll nicely to a yeasty sweeter bready/simple sugar end. O - simple and quite lovely. Really nice hoppy farmhouse ale. 3.8

75cl C&C bottle from summer secret Santa. Explosive carbonation that no joke ricocheted the cork off the ceiling as soon as the cage was removed. Pours a murky gold color with no real head but bubbly carbonation. nice aroma of citrus and green hops. The flavor is more true to style (a little more spice and earthiness) but with an American twist of added hoppiness. Really tasty.

Bottle (500 ml). Shared by hoppypocket, thanks! Hazy yellow with a medium white head and good lacing. Aroma of white chardonnay with a good Farmhouse character and notes of pilsner malt. Taste is slightly sweet with white wine, Farmhouse yeast, light malty notes and citrus. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium body. Good carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Very good hoppy Saison. The beer is exactly as advertised (Pilsner malt, Nelson Sauvin, Farmhouse yeast) and is really drinkable. Another winner from Prairie Ales!

Draft at Churchkey in April and most recently from a bottle. Pours a hazy yellow gold color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have floral, herbal and earthy hops, grassy, light citrus, a strange funk, hay, does this have Brett? I liked this fresh on draft better than the most recent bottle sample.

toxichop (284) - South Gate, California, USA - AUG 29, 2013
From a 500ml (Honestly I wish it was a 750ml cause this is good) poured into the Bottleworks Teku S: Spicy and fruity, some lime, lots of mango and pineapples, maybe som peaches and just a hint of pepper but overall its just fruity. P Nice big white head, cloudy yellow I cannot see anything through this beer. T: Bitter mango, citrus a hint of cloves, light spices, a hint of pepper and pineapple, M: Light with big carbonation. Medium bitterness with a somewhat dry finish. O: I love these hoppy saison that Prairie has been putting out.

illidurit (2051) - Petaluma, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Bottle from Beercraft poured into Saison DuPont glass. Pours light gold with a tangerine blush and a massive whipped cream head. The familiar enticements of Nelson Sauvin hops are immediately apparent -- super tropical with green mango, clementine and pineapple -- but there are also some soft floral accents. The flavor comes down to earth a little. There are still some passionfruit and sweet citrus notes but they are short-lived as a dry pale malty finish washes through. I like the body and the dryness but would prefer a little lactic tartness to drive it all home in the end there. Still a very nice beer.

Bottle shared by Phil. Hazy golden pour with a white head. Extremely fruit forward aroma. Big time pineapple juice, guava, lemon, and peach. Nice citrus, too. Hints of grass, mild malt, and some light tartness. Really a great flavor as well. Tons of guava, pineapple, citrus, and peach. Grapefruit zest, grass, and subtle malt.
