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 (9213) - 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 its 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 its 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 its one of the things I like most about this beer.

mariuspoenari (1844) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2016
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.

kathouse (1700) - Nevada, USA - SEP 2, 2016
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.

lownote (541) - 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 its not too intense. Very very light malty flavors. A little cloudy. Nice light body

PorterPounder (7544) - 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 (162) - Blsta, 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 (3897) - 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 (302) - 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. Its lacking the funky, barnyard aspects.

HPDalen (376) - 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.
