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.

750 at home. Pours a cloudy yellow with light, consistent lacing. Aroma is where the adventure begins: big citrus with some grass and funk. Taste is earthy and subtly spicy. Very smooth, dry finish. This is a must have beer - nothing like it.

Wittales (623) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Appearance was clear gold with diminishing creamy tiny white head, no lacing. Aromas are stone, tropical and soft citrus fruit with doughy, spicy yeasts. Taste are pineapple, orange, muscat grapes, spicy yeasts and grahamcracker-like malt, no alcohol. Palate was soft fizzy CO2 with light_medium body, lasting spicy tropical yeasty finish. A wonderful saison or Belgian ale, vintage 2013.

Hansen (6495) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2014
Difficult to rate, lots of sweet fruit and spice and still acidic. Golden coloured and hazy, unclear. Has a white head. Aroma of vanilla, sweet fruits and acid. Flavor too.

MartzMimic (79) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Pours a hazy gold with a bubbly white head. Huge aroma of tropical fruits, yeast and piney hops. Easily one of the best aromas I’ve come across. Tangerine, pineapple and mango stand out. There’s a touch of spice, and the hops give it a decent bitterness. Medium mouth with a carbonated crispness. The other dry-hopped saisons I’ve tried were middling, at best. This one is juicy and flavorful.

McNeillR (1122) - SCOTLAND - JUN 20, 2014
Full on opague light orange, very swift;y dissapating foam cap. Peacy, clean and sweet. Creamy and oddly cheesy. Finest, thinnest grainy esters. Gulping foamy carbonation. Not terribly hopped. Finish wholesome and rich, astounding for the ABV but lacking a full on grating Belgian punch.

hockeybeerguy (1635) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a tulip and a snifter the day I had it. The appearance was a nice looking hazy orange color with a thin white foamy half fingered head that dissipated within less than a minute in both glasses. The smell had some light notes of peach, mango and tangerine and had some light Belgian spices arrange themselves neatly in and out on over top of the previously mentioned fruits. The taste was a good combination of spicy to sweet. On the palate, this one sat at/about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed pretty good for the Belgian ale style. Overall, though I thought this was a saison at one time in my life, I see that it is not, well, honestly I’m okay with that. Straight up Belgian Pale Ale or Saison, either way this is good to me and worthy of having again.

Inbreak (1897) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2014
07.06.2014, 0,75l bottle @ home:
Big creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly fresh fruity, hops, citrus peel, leafs, lawn, mango, yeast, light malts, hay, grapefruit, hints of passion fruit. Taste is slightly fresh and dry, citrus peel, yeast, leafs, hops, alcohol, citrus, grass, tropical fruits. Longlasting bitterness, slightly harsh boozy mouthfeel. It was actually very nice the first 4-5 sips, and I would probably have rated it at 4,2 based on that. But then a very powerful harsh citrusy vodka-like boozyness started to punch through, which I didn’t like at all.
