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.

This is my first beer from Prairie, and hopefully wont 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 wouldnt call it "funk" but theres definitely yeast character to it thats 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 wouldnt want to up it for fear that it would take away from the way that the acidity lingers on the tongue.

2015 BJCP Category: 21B Specialty IPA: Belgian IPA

AROMA: Strong American hop aroma of stone, citrus and tropical fruit. A light wheat scent appears in the background. Esters and phenols are very obscured. 10/12

APPEARANCE: Very hazy copper/orange. Moderate off-white foam persists. 3/3

FLAVOR: A veritable fruit basket of flavors. Tropical and stone fruits are most prominent and are lightly sweet and almost juicy. Green pear is present in the background. Bitterness is moderate with a dry/spicy taste. Esters and phenols are present for slight pepper taste and drying sensation, but are obscured by the hops. Aside from a slight crackery taste, the malt base is passive. Alcohol plays no role in the palette. 16/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body with medium-low carbonation. Doesnt feel sticky, but is certainly not crisp. The 8% ABV is well-masked as far as taste and warmth. Beer is genuinely refreshing and quaffable. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Though billed as a "Belgian-style ale" (saison?), its clearly a Belgian IPA and works well as such. 9/10

TOTAL SCORE: 42/50

11/20 a bit over carbonated but that settled down a bit. Quite yeasty with not an entirely pleasant taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

50cl bottle. Hazy orange pour with a Belgian ale-style tall white head with good retention. Notes of herbal hops, unripe tropical fruit - mango, papaya, passion fruit - dank cellar, peach, a bit of honey and some farmhouse funk. Medium body and carbonation, with a bitter-sweet hoppy finish.

Now this is a good beer. Nice golden color. Thick foam. Belgian spice and combination of hops flavors that showcase the best of IPA and Belgian pale ales.
