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.

Pour is a very hazed light golden yellow with a tight white head. Nose has a nice dusty yeast with a hint of tangy spice. Lots of golden fruits from the saison and notes of it from the hops. Taste is even more dusty and yeast forward with a great balance of bright golden fruits in back. Light hop bitterness that adds to the flavor. Very dry finish, lighter body and assertive carbonation. Really nice stuff here, but gets a touch sweeter as it warms.

Bright, golden spice & hop character. Perfect amount of juicy hops accent the saison base. Foamy, frothy white head. Solid.

Really interesting stuff here. POured a very hazy lighter orange color with a white head. Aroam was of hops, mainly orangey and citrusy, some grass, brett, mild funk, more brett, did I mention brett?. Flavor was similar, huge in your face of brett and hops, mild oak and mushroomy character. Pretty solid.

Pinball (10764) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2014
75lc bottle from ølbutikken, 99dkk - cloudy yellow, smooth white head.Slightly yeasty aroma, also very hoppy, flowery hops, us hops, dough. Not overly agressively hopped though, for an american. Very nice exotic fruity flavor, some yeasty notes, some sweet malts, some us style hops, flowery and exotic flavor in general, with this dry bitter hoppy backgroup. nice one, although i’d never call it anything like saison, judging by the flavor.

(privileged to enjoy this on tap @ Mikkeller & Friends) Pours a semi-clear golden with creamy white head and quite lively carbonation. Impressive retention, beautiful lace and impressive regeneration. Aroma is pleasantly fresh hops with initial notes of passion fruit and lychee, which after a while give way to make room for what seems like a subtle, peppery saison yeast note with hints of pickles. Very yummy. Quite equally delicious on the palate: slightly prickly, good body without bring too full, oily texture and a dry finish that emphasises driness and the saison flavour. Very much to my taste with forward hops, dry finish and the nice finishing saison twist. Best saison I’ve yet tasted.

Bottled. Aroma of new mown hay. Puffy white head over clear orange body. Light carbonation flavor is classic saison with a clean finish.

75cl bottle shared at thw Watford tasting. It pours a hazy apricot color with a large white head. Aroma of citrus, floral hops, grass lots of apricots. Taste is balanced between the hoppy fruity notes of apricots and the zingy dryer notes of farmhouse and brett. Medium body with good carbonarion. Very good and very enjoyable.
