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.

3fourths (8888) - 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.

Citrus and grainy nose. Citrus, funk, apple palate. The finish stays dusty with a tangerine lingering.

Very attractive cloudy Amber color. Massive head rivals Duvel! Leans sour, but hops and Belgium yeast make fine contribution.

Boutip (5476) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 29, 2015
Bottle: Poured a deep cloudy amber color ale with a super large foamy head with excellent retention and great lacing. Aroma of dry hoppy notes with light green and grassy note with some rustic malt notes. Tate is also dominated by grassy notes with light dry rustic malt and hay notes. Body is full with great carbonation. Nice easy drinking saison with just the right amount of complexity.

Hikeg (196) - - DEC 28, 2015
Exciting blend of tropical fruits and Belgian yeast - lime, sweat, nutmeg, bubble gum, peach. Dry, bitter long finish. Medium acidic, brett, funk. Big frothy head. Nice, but too exotic with the hops for my taste. Well done though.

An orange gold colour, a head is dense, big and blond. Aroma has fruitness, mangos, mandarin, some sourness and earthyness.
