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 (9358) - 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.

Piana obfita, w miarę szybko się redukuje. Aromaty mandarynki, troszkę estrów, dzikusy. W smaku trochę chmielowych cytrusów - mandarynka. Troszkę brzoskwiniowych, belgijskich nut; ale przede wszystkim czyste niczym nie zasłonięte dzikusy. Genialny smak, zero niepotrzebnych rzeczy.

Score: 8 / 4 / 7 / 4 / 15

355 ml bottle from BeerLovers.
Amber, hazy body, with a big, stable, fluffy, lacing, white head.
Aroma of yeast, citrus, lemongrass, peach, straw, flowers, some dough, subtle young cheese.
Tastes similar, with some more herbs.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes dry, medium bitter, yeasty, hoppy, citric, floral, grainy, lingering piney.

Very nice. Hop- and yeast-forward, very fresh and crisp, the ABV is completely hidden. Very well balanced, with a pleasant dryness and lots of pine towards the finish. Great stuff, as always from Prairie.

alteregoo (1746) - Kalisz, POLAND - SEP 15, 2017
Piana obfita, ale mydlana, gruba, szybko opada do chmurki. Barwa żółta, mętna. Aromat intensywnie mandarynkowy, brzoskwiniowy, z wyraźną nutą słodkich kandyzowanych owoców i przypraw. W smaku natomiast wytrawne, jednocześnie chmielowo cytrusowe, estrowo morelowe i fenolowo ziołowe. Goryczka dość wysoka, żywiczno trawiasta, nieco ściągająca. Wysycenie średnie, bardzo "easydrinkong" zważywszy na wysoki alkohol, który delikatnie rozgrzewa dopiero na trzecim planie.
Niezły Saison, bliższy nowofalowemu, chmielowemu podejściu jak choćby te od Dupont...
