COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Lore (1981) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 18, 2016
hazy golden colour, medium sized white head, which disappears quite quickly; aroma of wet wheat, barnyard, wet leather, earthy and lemony notes; sourish-bittery taste with bread, lemony somehow metallic and tart notes; armando warned me, it has quite agressive carbonation, so I should be careful during opening - well, I tried to be: I chilled the bottle as he recommended then I handled the opener very gently: first it seemed that everything is ok, but after having some peaceful seconds, it started to explode from the bottle :-) It is a really ’wild’ beer, I would say...more wild, than sour :-)))))

ajnepple (4819) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 21, 2016
500 ml bottle from the Craft Beer Cellar - Fort Collins. Huge gusher, probably lost over half of the beer. Hazy yellow appearance with a white head. Funky, mild sour aroma with barnyard, white wine, light citrus and wild yeast. Similar flavor, pretty refreshing and easy to drink with a tart finish. Too bad I lost half of it..

Zlotta (1490) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2016
0.5 l bottle at RBBWG 2016 in Antwerpen. Hazy, straw yellow with a white head. Sweetish, fruity-grassy aroma of lemon, grapefruit, white grapes and pomelo. Fruity-grassy, slightly bitter taste of straw, pomelo, gooseberry and grapefruit, followed by a short, slightly bitter, fruity-grassy finish. Medium body, spritzy and slightly astringent mouthfeel. Nice!

77ships (7210) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 21, 2016
650 ml. bottle shared @ RBBWG V. GUSHER. Murky golden citrus, little white head. Nose is awful, salt, sweet, spoiled, rotting sweet, wet dog, worst brett etc. profile imaginable. Hugely fizzy body & taste, taste is a bit better than the smell but still not too good, watery, cooked vegetable, dirty brett, herbal, thin watery rubbish. I really should stop buying Prairie beers, I keep saying but seriously, dude. I don’t get these high scores.
