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.

(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.

Bottle pored into a 2nd Anni Prairie Teku -- A very active beer with two finger white pillowy foam on top of a cloudy straw colored beer. This is my second favorite Saison of Prairie’s behind Standard. Very good.

JDBaker11058 (1444) - Maryland, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Appearance: clear orangey gold (significantly muddied with additional pours drawing forth the lees), with a nice dense, slowly shrinking bright white head. Aroma: bright nose full of citrus and tropical fruit, with an assertive lemongrass kick and a hint of earthy funk; citra use is clear in the aroma. Taste: lemon zest and orange, with mango, light pineapple, maybe some tangerine; slightly sweet crackery malts with a hint of honey; slight yeasty funk (less than in a typical saison); good hops on the back end, with citrus balanced by a bit of pine and earth. Finish: very dry, with lingering hops taking on a slightly grassy character. Notes: First experience with this brewery. This was a pretty special beer. Not overly hopped, so the prominent Belgian notes weren’t subsumed to the Americanization. Would drink again. Bottle from Knightly Spirits in Orlando, Florida.

16.9 oz bottle. Cloudy orange with a white head. Nose is grass, yeast, bubblegum, white pepper and basil. Medium body with fuzzy carb. Taste is grass, citrus pith, faint honey and earthy herbs. Not so dynamic; maybe an older bottle.

bytemesis (4096) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy golden, large off-white head, dissipates fairly slowly, nice lacing. Aroma is hay, citrus, passionfruit, lemon, funk. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, citrus, very light funkiness, pepper. Light body, high carbonation. Solid beer, but I think I drank it in no-mans land; not fresh enough for the hops to shine, not old enough for the funk to develop.

jahshuwuh (477) - USA - NOV 10, 2014
A light hazy orangeish brown color with ample white fluffy head. Smells of fresh cut grass, horse blanket, pine, wheat. Taste is a grassy hoppy fresh taste, some of the horse blanket, a little bit of grain/wheat, finished with a tiny bit of caramel malt sweetness and saltine cracker. Good fresh hoppy beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pjames317 (93) - Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Pours a medium bodied, gentle yellow with a lil bit of a hazy glow. Has that barnyard funk-yeast typical of good saisons. Grassy hops, lemon pith, fruity traces of mango, white peach and strawberry. Taste is lively, somewhat peppery/zippy. Basement must. Very dry. This would pair phenomenally well with cheese, like a taleggio. Dry hopping gives floral and earthy element. This is well-conceived and nicely executed.

500 ml bottle. Served in a Prairie Teku, the beer pours a hazy gold color with an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both very good. The brew smells like straw, grassy and citrusy hops, yeast, mango, citrus peel, and earthiness. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also some peppery spice, tropical fruit, grainy malt and a bit of peach noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s well carbonated and goes down pretty easy. I think it’s a good hoppy saison, another quality Prairie brew! It’s pricey at $10.99 a bottle, but it’s a tasty brew! Definitely worth trying.
