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.

Pours a light gold color with tons of effervesence. Aroma has tons of brett, funk and citrus. Flavor also has citrus and some fruityness. Slight spice, white wine and candied sugar in the finish. Kinda simple and fizzy.

A 16.9 fl oz (500ml) bottle with a Julian bottled on date of 13815, meaning it was bottled on 18th May 2015. There was lots of warning that this was likely to be a gusher, so I was very careful opening this. Luckily this opened as a slow gusher, so there was time to pour before it overflowed. Even after pouring one-third of the bottle, you could see it still clearly going up the bottle! It was poured into a Duvel tulip glass. It poured a hazy straw golden yellow colour with a two finger white head that dissipated slowly to a thinish foam cap and leaves nice streaky lacing. Nice tart, funky barnyard, hay, lemon and pear aromas. Tastes tart, sour, lemon, funk followed by some light peppery spice and light bitterness. Medium bodied with a medium but prickly carbonation. Overall, a nice sour, tart and funky beer.

Lore (2211) - 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 (5222) - 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 (2262) - Hagen, GERMANY - 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!
