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.

3fourths (8394) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2013 750ml bottle. cloudy semi-dark wheat colored body with a billowy and sitcky white head. strongly floral nose with a lot of potpourri, dish soap, wax, mango and peach notes; very yeast-heavy. the vanilla candle wax and tropical fruit esters begin to grow as it breathes, and though my first impression (cold from the bottle) was nice, as it arrives around 55 F there is an ester amplification. I have to say it’s more a design problem than execution. medium to medium-full body; medium aicd; strongly tart; yeast and chalk texture with a lot of gummi malt sugars. an abundance of tropical / fruity American hops appears through the ester cloud, but the core is bitter pine sap. even with a careful pour it’s all in suspension. perhaps you have to sit these bottles upright for a week to settle them out. so here is a beer that I would call more of raw unfiltered wheat IPA (wheat or not, the malt and yeast share similarities with Hefeweizen, flavor-wise) than anything I would call Saison. I like the effort, it has the fundamentals right to land somewhere in the area of XX Bitter (mostly pale malt, strong hop expression, Belgian yeast); but the use of American hops and doughy yeast turns it into a very bitter ester-bomb. the malt texture seems smooth by comparison to all of this, so it’s one of the things I like most about this beer.

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 (982) - 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 (6754) - 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.
