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.

Andy_ (963) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 21, 2015
500 ml bottle
Yellow to orange slightly hazy beer with big dense persistent white head leaving lacing. Aroma has black currant bush, grapefruit, yeast, funkiness and sweet malts. Flavor has black currant, grapefruit, yeast and orange. Palate is full and foamy and bitter. Finish has quite strong bitterness. Aftertaste has black currant, grapefruit, yeast, malts, orange, gooseberry and herbal bitterness. A bit too much of black currant but a decent heavyish modern saison.

Bottle from Saveur-Biere.com - Color: clear pale blond beer with no carbonation and small white foam. Smell: grassy and small hoppy nose. Finish floral. Taste: nice sour notes and farmhouse. Good balance. Very nice beer easy drinkable. Aftertaste: balance of sour and hoppy. A must to try.

probstblueribbon (3273) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 17, 2015
50 cl bottle from Bieropholie, served cool in a tulip glass. Hazy golden with a nice white foam. Pungent citrus and spiciness, quite phenolic, a bit grainy, some other vague fruity notes...oranges, mango, a bit grainy. Medium body with full, rounded carbonation. The flavour follows the nose, a bit more aggressive and a bit less fruity; dry with fairly good bitterness and a long, pungent finish. Quite good.

ksiwzos (87) - GREECE - JUN 15, 2015
0.5L bottle from Greek e-shop Hazy yellow to golden with average dense head, lasting and very beautiful. Aroma is pineapple and notes of tropical fruits, some yeasty aroma thought not estery or phenolic at all. Taste is hay sweet-ish, earthy, light colored caramel with bitter finish and long bitter aftertaste. Carbonation is medium to high. Amazing brew.

MartinT (8492) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Tropical fruit ride this New World Saison’s expansive effervescence, surveying rustic undercurrents and doughy yeast till resinous bitterness conquers the finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A mountain of foam tops the shiny yellow haze.
-The rusticity is reminiscent of wet hay.
-The resinous hops coincide with the brettanomyces flavors in the finish.
-Doughy yeast takes a little too much room in the flavor profile for my tastes.
-Fruitiness is quite citrusy as well, with starfruit connotations.
