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.

Tasting at Matt’s
Cloudy blond color with medium sized compact head. Very nice aroma; citrus fruits, funky, lightly footy, light cookies. Dry mouthfeel and highly carbonated; funky malt flavor, some vegetables, zesty, but also a bit too yeasty. Strong bitterness.
Very good.

mcberko (9223) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
500mL bottle, pours an opaque cloudy golden orange with a large white head. Aroma is wonderful, with loads of tropical fruits, barnyard funk, yeast, and citrus hops. Flavour is just as pleasant, with notes of peach and mango in the tropical fruit department, followed by citrus and piney hops, and ample funk from the yeast. About as good as you could ask for in a hop-forward saison. Wonderful depth, drinkability and complexity.

Marheb (3055) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Ouvert dans un Econo lodge de Lincoln, Nebraska. Une base céréalière confortable assaillie d’une effervescence minérale. Des houblons moribonds traînent ce liquide à l’éthanol expressif. La levure est assez propre, l’amertume courte et la buvabilité correcte.

jgb9348 (5067) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Very hazy blonde and copper coloured body with a very thin off-white head. Aroma of funk, Brett, higher a.a. hops, a bit of malt and some nice sugars. Medium-bodied; Assertive effervescence with a nice and defined hop flavour and more Brett funkiness than I expected. Good rich aftertaste with some malt and sugars, but the yeastie and hop flavours dominate. Overall, a nice beer to sample that shows pretty much everything you’d expect from an IPA made by Choc. I sampled this 12 ounce snifter poured on draught at TapWerks in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. For US$7,00 on 12-September-2014.

Bottle shared with my wife. Hazy golden pour with a huge egge shell head. Nose has yeast, some brett, grains and some citrus. Taste is like a regular saison with some bretty notes, citrus, apple and some yeasty notes.

bhops (432) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with thick rocky head. Aroma is delightful and hoppy. Lots of citrus. Can almost taste the beer with your nose. In fact, I might rather smell it than taste it. Flavor is nice. Hoppy but not overpowering. A little spicy. Ground pepper with slight but pleasant tongue burn. Empty dry finish but the kind of understated flavor (at least compared to the aroma) that I like. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

neongolden (745) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
(500ml bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Dec 4 2014) Pours a hazy pale golden orange with a moderate, lacy white head. Aroma nice dank American farmhouse, where cut grass, mango, peach, citrus pith and peel balance with a little herbal/peppery spice and nice kick of barnyard funk. Palate at first has a core of sweetish lightly honeyed malts with a light white bread/cracker grain that is mostly obscured by hops, peach, mango, citrus zest, wet grass, herbs. A bit of barnyard horse blanket funk builds in the middle, making it clear this is a saison, but not overpowering. Moving into the finish the hops persist but the character gains more peppercorn/herbal spiciness, a little grain, yeasty/fruity characters partly drowned by a moderate bitterness. Finishes pretty dry and lightly mineral with some astringency. Light-medium mouthfeel with effervescent carb. This is a pretty nice American farmhouse, good hop character, maybe needs to get a little yeastier or be fresher on the hops, but nicely cleanses the palate without being bland.
