COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Forhåbentlig fornærmer vi ikke nogen ved at sige, at når det handler om godt øl, så var der lidt langt mellem snapsene I Oklahoma - indtil for ganske få pr siden. Ind på scenen trådte så brødrene Healey, Colin og Chase, med stort mod, personlighed og et stort talent for at brygge øl. Og resten er vist historie, som man siger…
Prairie Artisan Ales - oprindeligt et fantombryggeri - blev hurtigt et af de mest omtalte bryggerier, ikke bare i Oklahoma, ikke bare i USA men i hele verden. Så da disse gode mennesker blev inviteret til at deltage i Copenhagen Beer Celebration, var det kun naturligt også at invitere dem til Amager Bryghus. Og den øltype vi valgte til dette samarbejdsbryg skulle naturligvis være en Farmhouse Saison, en stil som netop Prairie har excelleret i.
Her på bryghuset er en af de ansatte stadig frygtelig flov over at have sovet igennem et tornadovarsel på et motelværelse et sted i Oklahoma for år tilbage. Så ud af respekt for vejrguderne besluttede vi os for at kalde denne øl for "Tulsa Twister" - om nogen er Oklahoma jo USA’s tornadostat nr. 1. Lige så larmende og frygtindgydende en tornado er, lige så afslappede og hyggelige er fyrene fra Prairie. Vi havde en fornøjelig brygdag i al venskabelighed. Vi håber det afspejles i øllet.

English: Hopefully we don’t insult anybody by claiming that Oklahoma was quite a beer wasteland until just recently. Then, along came the brothers Healey, Colin and Chase, with guts, stamina and an awful lot of talent. And well, the rest is history… Prairie - originally a gypsy operation - soon became one of the most buzzed about craft breweries, not only in Oklahoma, not only in the US, but in the world. So when these dudes were invited to the Copenhagen Beer Celebration it was only natural for us to invite them to Amager also. And naturally the style chosen for our collaboration had to be a Farmhouse Saison, a style that Prairie has very much excelled at brewing. One of the Amager crew is still terribly ashamed of sleeping through a tornado warning at a motel room somewhere in Oklahoma years ago, so out of respect for the powers from above we named the beer "Tulsa Twister". As loud and frightening as a twister is, as cool and laid back are the dudes from Prairie. We had a great day of brewing and friendship - we hope it shows in the beer.

Holmen1 (3021) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2015
Fra fad på Taphouse i Lavendelstræde, sammen med Aske og Fredrik: uklar gylden med skum som varer helt ned. Bitterappelsin, nellik, koriander, kardemomme, citron og lime nevnes rundt bordet. En meget smagfuld saison fra de dyktige drenge over broen. Nydelig balancered eftersmag.

Sigmund (5421) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2015
500 ml bottle, batch #888, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7.5%. Very pale yellow colour, slightly hazy. Pours fizzy with a large white head. The aroma is distinctly hoppy with fruity notes and a catty hint, also pleasant and mild spicy notes, a hint of farmhouse. The flavour is medium dry and crisp, again with mild spicy / peppery notes, also fruity hops. Medium bitter aftertaste.

DraftDodger (201) - - FEB 14, 2015
Copenhagen 12/2 2015. 50 cl bottle. Gift from a colleague. Pours pale slightly hazy yellow with big white head. Kind of foamy. Gradually subsiding. Aroma is distinct and fruity. Dominated by a sweetish peach. Medium carbonation. Taste is suprisingly sharp and rather bitter without the fruity quality indicated by the aroma. Clear hints of alcohol as well. A little on the bitter side.

jaszymku (44) - POLAND - FEB 13, 2015
Pięknie wygląda, żółte nieprzejrzyste, trwała piana osadzająca się na ściankach. W aromacie odrobina jabłka, trawy cytrynowa, belgijskie nuty, guma balonowa - bogato! W smaku od razu uderza ogromne nagazowanie, w smaku dość zwykły belgijski ale, goryczka przyjemnie zaznaczona.

Ingevara (826) - SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2015
Light color, slightly hazy. Very high frothy lasting head. The flavor is bitter and fruity, lots of citrus, a bit too acidy to my liking. Lots of hops. Deeply aromatic but in a forced way. I think it would gain a lot by half a year in an oak keg.
