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.

2015 bottle. A hazy straw color with a big, foamy white head. Aroma is pine and flowers with some ripe mango and a little lemon underneath. Taste is a little briny with straw and definite mango and tangerine. Some peppery spice and just a mild pine bitterness at the end. Leaves a little aspirin taste and feel on the tongue. Medium bodied with lots of carbonation. Finishes fairly dry and a little chalky. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

freretoc (981) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 7, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 66cl, couleur blonde avec reflets ambrées, grosse mousse et effervescence moyenne, une attaque au nez très forte sur l’ananas. Très annanas en bouche aussi, puis fruit exotique type goyave. Continuité sur l’amertume un peu trop marqué sur le gain en fin de bouche.

Another winner from one of the most impressive breweries in the world.. In my opinion. Pours a hazy yellow with mountains of white head. Very herbaceous and grassy hop aromas. Flavors are herbal with a touch of white wine. Grassy with a beautiful dry finish. Exceptional.

Plovmand (6751) - Helsinge, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle. It pours bit hazy yellow with a big white head. The aroma is fruity hoppy and yeasty with lighter tart notes. High carbonation. Fruity flavor with spicy yeasty notes. It’s good but not as good as the overall ratings makes it imo.
