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.

Hazy and pale, pretty big head. Dryish, yeasty with a nice fruity hop character. So many Prairie beers taste the same, but it’s a good taste, complex, delicious and reliable.

Bottle brought back from KC. Pours hazy straw with white fluffy head. Nose is mostly saison yeast with some cracker malts, grassy hop notes and light citrus. Medium bodied and creamy. Saison upfront with a pleasant citra citrus hopping dryness and bitter notes on the finish. Could drink this all day ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a cloudy gold. Huge frothy head, two inches or so. Belgian yeast, lemon, some sugar. A hoppy Belgian ale, slightly confusing in that respect but a very drinkable beer.

Turbid orange body with a massive massive white head. Like three fingers+. Stiff peaks. Seriously, I blew on it and it formed a wavecurl and held. You can tell right away that the yeast is going to play an integral part in this movie: sweet belgian, crisp tart apples are the dominant note here. Some lemon. Starts off sweet following the apple/lemon blueprint laid out by the nose, but takes a sharp detour into... like baked almond biscotti? Yeah, that reminds me of my classmate’s dad’s biscotti. NOT what I was expecting. Also, I’m not a huge fan of biscotti in general. I know, I know. Almond gives way and it rededicates to the yeast and hop bitterness of grassy lemon and apple and a slight tart funkiness. Finish is at once yeasty sweet and sharply bitter.

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 (2573) - 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.
