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.

tom10101 (3580) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2015
Bottle (500 ml). Split 4-ways.

Appearance: Cloudy bright yellow with a small white head and little lacing.

Aroma: Quite lemony and floral with grains, light brettanomyces and yeasty notes.

Taste: Fairly lemony as well with floral notes, grains, pineapples, mild brettanomyces and grassy notes.

Palate: Medium body. Medium to liverly carbonation. Dry. Herbal and lemony finish.

Overall: Simple, well-executed and well-balanced Saison. Tasty, easy to drink and quenching. Nice lemony features. I’m curious to try it once the brettanomyces develops a bit more.

maneliquor (3392) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 22, 2015
Bottle from Mane Liquor. This reminded me of a lemon sorbet. Loads of sour and tangy lemon with heavy zest without the tanginess to finish. Kind of savoury with very bright citrus. Lemon all over. I dig it

Kauge (563) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 22, 2015
Bottle from Uba ja Humal in Tallinn (€ 5.90). Hazy, very pale yellow colour. Head massive, bubbly, off-white. Good retention and lacing. The nose is damn refreshing, giving off notes of champagne (initially) and tinned pineapples, peaches and lemon, very juicy, it’s so nice! Tastes as refreshing, with citric fruits and pineapple most dominant, it’s very-very succulent, more sweet than bitter or sour. Light on the body, around average carbonation, dry finish. Excellent drinkability and not a hint of its ABV. Would guess it to be around 5 maybe. A fine Saison!

Bottle shared at a sour tasting at our place. Thanks Papsoe. Cloudy light blond with a white head. Sweet, a little spicy aroma of cardamom and nutmeg, funky, slightly salty and slightly metallic taste. Light body, salty, a little funky finish.

mathieuc (1853) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 19, 2015
UPDATED: APR 26, 2015 Bath #865. Pours a cloudy bright yellow (almost seems like it could glow in the dark) with a small white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of pils, herbs, pine, grass and fruits. Lightly fresh. Taste is dry and fruity. Some nice cereals without being too sweet or floury. Moderately high bitterness. Some meyer lemons. Body is medium, carbonation higher than high and mouthfeel creamy. Overall a nice saison but it could have been a whole lot better with a tame carbonation I think!

czar (5223) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2015
pours cloudy yet glowing pale yellow with a frothy/creamy white head, excellent retention and lacing. floral and spicy citrus - grapefruit, fragrant and fruity bretts - crushable, peppery pilsener malts, candied lemon zest, some tropical notes - delicious pineapple, astringent herbs and grass. lively carbonation, light body; dry, astringent grassy-herbal-citrusy finish. excellent - or how to brew something great with simple/few ingredients! much enjoyed!

JorisPPattyn (8232) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 14, 2015
Huge, ultrafine and -dense yellowish head over well-carbonated yellow beer. Spicy, yeasty nose, bit herbal, green shoots, white pepper. Wry citrus, old cookies, yeast. Dry-bitter finish. Warming up, floormop Brett. Very carbonated, spritzy feel. Light body, wheat-like slickness. Oh well. Wyeastlabs must be kept happy.
