Prairie Gold is a dry, highly effervescent saison fermented with a mix of ale yeast, wine yeast, lactobacillus and 2 strains of brettanomyces. This beer highlights the various yeasts and bacteria used to make it. Lemon, pear, white wine grapes, and a touch of funk dominate the flavor and aroma in this champagne like beer.

neongolden (882) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2015
(500ml bottle from kihoskh.dk) Pours a hazy medium gold with a big bubbly active white head fading to a ring with lace. Aroma bright and a bit tart/sour with under-ripe pear, apple skin, white wine, touch of stone fruit, with light lemon lacto and background notes of hay and a bit of yeasty earthy funk. Palate is lightly sour/tart with a softly sweet crackery malt core. Reasonably fruity, white wine with under-ripe stone fruits, lemon zest, a little gooseberry, hay, light dried herbs. Finish lightly tart, dry and mineral. Lingering citrus zest and white grape, a bit of grain and hay. Very soft touch of funk. Light-medium body with fairly high effervescent carb. Not too sour, a little fruity, and not very funky - it’s a whole blend of fermenting agents but not too punchy with any of them. Makes a better base for the "Funky Gold" beers than solo, but it’s not bad by any means.

procraste (303) - FRANCE - OCT 28, 2015
Robe trouble et laiteuse. C’est un peu n’importe quoi ce truc et en męme temps, c’est rigolo tout plein. Une sorte de "fouzitou" joyeusement foutraque et funky ...Wild aussi. Du citron donc avec un fond de raisin. étonnant et troublant !

fidelis83 (2224) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 26, 2015
Pale gold pour with a tall, fluffy white head that fades somewhat quickly to around half a finger and is sustained there by some high effervescence. Aroma is bright tart and funky yeast notes, lemon, under ripe berries, a touch of cereal just a hint of smokiness. Flavor is sour, funky and tart bery up front, then some musty funk, toast, hay and some green woodiness. Light body, dry and crisp throughout, highly carbonated. Really god stuff.

Panzuriel (1557) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2015
Large bottle (500 ml? pint? didn’t mark it in my notes) purchased at Aficionados in Lewis Center, OH. Prairie Prairie Gold was a very hazy medium golden brew with a firm head of off white bubbles. Nose was lemon sour with traces of earthy funk. Taste was mildly tart. Quite a restrained sour with some hints of peach and citrus. Body was medium and a bit fizzy. A very nice sour, perhaps I should try more. I am afraid the first few have turned me completely off to the style, but more of this and I’d come right back.

malrubius (2239) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Bottle from Brewfest. Total gusher despite sitting still in fridge for two days. Gushed the head right off. Peachy pale orange no head or lace. White wine pear aroma. Mild tropical fruit and peach sweetness with mild tart citrusy white wine tartness. Medium light body almost flat since the "effervescence" gushed right out the top of the bottle and fizzed off the beer. Pretty much a waste of $12.
