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 ml bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a slightly hazy, but bright golden color with a small disappearing white head. The aroma opens with a nice burst of grapefruit citrus, additional hints of fruits, mild funk, grass, yeast and mildly sweet malts. The flavor has less grapefruit, but more of the saison character. Some funk, mild fruits, grass, pale, lightly toasted malts, good hop bitterness to the finish. This is a surprisingly solid beer. I am glad it found its way to our area.

lownote (493) - Austin, Alabama, USA - JUN 22, 2016
Very lemon like citrus aroma. A little spice. Sharp bitter upfront. Very dry. A little tart. Some spiciness, but it’s not too intense. Very very light malty flavors. A little cloudy. Nice light body

PorterPounder (7121) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 16, 2016
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - 500 ml bottle. Hazy, bright orange pour, soft, bubbly white head, a bit of lacing. Aroma has some sweet fruity notes. peaches and apricots come to mind. Full-bodied fruity flavor, pick up some nectarine notes, some raw cake mix sweetness, some coriander spiciness, some bitter hoppy goodness. Nice, thick rich mouthfeel.

Enteogenisk (128) - Bålsta, SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2016 Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a two-finger white head. The aroma is dense with tropical fruits and the taste really isn?t shy! The fruits are gathered along with the Belgian style foundation which I usually relate to sweetish boozy licorice, blending very well with the hops. One of the best hoped light beers I?ve had in a while.

johnnnniee (3660) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 4, 2016
Bottle from Florida Just a touch of hazy in a light golden color with a huge frothy bone white head that shows great retention. Aromas of light earthy funk with bits of sweet citrus and caramel. Light bits of metal are a bit distracting. Decent brew.

PanMarek (172) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2016
Dark golden pour with thick foam. Grassy aroma with elements of fruit. Mild yeasty / Belgian flavor with hoppy finish. If I had not know it ahead of time, I would not have identified it as a saison. It’s lacking the funky, barnyard aspects.

HPDalen (248) - DENMARK - MAY 15, 2016
Farmhouse aroma (if there is such a thing), sweat and yeasty. Tones of pine and flowers. Pours hazy golden with a fine, frothy head. Quite complex in taste, sweat then bitter. Feels quite lively, not particularly long. Good beer.

anstei (1016) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 22, 2016
Bottle from Biervana. A saison imitating to be Belgian, as promised: Sweet, some farmhouse, crisp but fine carbonation making it not quite as heavy as it might be, a bit oily. Quite bitter. Nice, but not terribly exciting by taste.

glennmastrange (2621) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2016
Bottle. Heavy grain and straw for the malt, moderate pine, grass and herbs for the hops, moderate barnyard and musty for the yeast, with notes of proseco, green apple and wood in the background. Head is huge, fizzy/frothy, white with a tan swirl at the end of the pour, which is crusty but doesn’t stick to the glass, and is mostly lasting. Color is murky medium amber. Flavor starts moderately acidic and faintly sweet, and finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, slick with a fizzy carbonation and finishes lightly alcoholic and dry. The hop profile and the yeast component make a great mix of flavors and aromas in this superb Saison.

puboflyons (3019) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - APR 17, 2016
From the 25 fl. oz. bottle. It is stamped but I can’t figure out the date it was bottled. Cloudy amber-orange color with a tremendous white foamy head. The aroma has some standard Belgian toasted malt and yeasty characters. But the yeast is a wild yeasty character like one would expect from a Saison. The fruit characters are not as prominent as the tasting notes imply. The body is light to medium. The taste has a little light fruit that feels overripe. The finish is mildly bitter.
