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.

This is my first beer from Prairie, and hopefully won’t be the last. Hazy golden amber pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is tart and slightly grainy. Lemon pith, lemongrass, lime leaf, honey. Flavor is lightly acidic up front, lending a tart, bright character. Lemon and lime, with lightly floral hops. Toast and grass. I wouldn’t call it "funk" but there’s definitely yeast character to it that’s almost funky. Reminds me of stuff like Jolly Pumpkin or Fantome with that bright, expressive, fresh tart Belgian character. I could probably find notes of just about any citrus fruit I looked for. Just that right balance where the hops are clearly bringing out and highlighting the natural fruity notes of the saison without just tasting like a beer with a bunch of hops dumped in it. Hits that spot that makes your mouth water and crave sip after sip. Honestly a bit thick and heavy for a hot summer day, but great with a meal of fish. Carbonation is on the light side, but I probably wouldn’t want to up it for fear that it would take away from the way that the acidity lingers on the tongue.

Flaska från Craftbeer/Galatea. Smak och doft av humle, citrus, jäst, gräs, hö och aningar av aprikos och persika. Fin sötma, frisk, beska med smak av citrusskal.

APPEARANCE - golden yellow, super white head. Head rings the outside of the glass. NOSE - smells a lot like a saison, no discernable hops. FLAVOR - light hop flavor comes through. Seriously grassy hop flavor in every sip.

Vignale (2497) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2015
Flaska från Craftbeer/Galatea. En humlad saison där humlen inte dominerar. Citrus, gräs, hö, lite persika och mango. Ganska jästig och lite murrig, torr avslutning med medelstor beska. Kanske har humlen blivit lite trött och då blir inte det här så friskt som jag förväntade mig. Gott, men inte wow.

Bottle. Creamy White good mostly lasting head. Dark yellow colour. Moderate malty and hoppy and yeasty aroma. Moderate bitter flavor. Esters and sour notes in nice balance. Average moderate bitter finish. Creamy palate.

procraste (155) - FRANCE - JUN 13, 2015
Nez floral ... Fruitée avec une pointe d’acidité. Arôme herbacé intrigant, presque un mélange citronnelle et abricot voir rhubarbe (???) Bière intéressante en tout cas et qui change du tout venant !

Dry beer, big white head. I think mine must have been quite old as the hops seem faded, but a good beer anyway.

Bottle from Market Street-Frisco. Pours a cloudy dull yellow with a medium white head. The aromas are tropical fruits, peach, mango, yeast. the mouthfeel is wet and slightly dry with a light body and good carbonation. Great beer! Cheers!

Bottle share at Evernote. Strong fruity funk on the nose. Light hops and spicy fruit peels. Not my favorite from Prairie but still excellent.

czar (5581) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
pours hazy pale golden with a tall creamy white head, excellent retention and lacing. floral citrus, fruity berries and peaches, very yeasty - spicy dust, bitter greens, fresh cut grass, crushable bretts. lively carbonation, light body - oily; assertive and drying spicy-grassy-herbal finish. very nice hoppy belgian ale - a lot better than belgian offerings that is. fresh bottle yet a tad muted, but oh so enjoyable!
