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.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy golden with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of citrus and fruits, some tart notes, a little maltiness, and light bitterness. Flavor the same with a nice tart and citrus note but not a lot of complexity outside of that. Average texture. A nice sour beer but it lacks depth that a lot of sours have.

Thanks to Phil for sharing. Golden pour with a white head. Big time strawberry and lemon aromas. Floral, tart, and mild funk. Grass, maybe some apple skin, and a hint of wine vinegar. Flavor is sour, unripe strawberry. Lemon, light funk, grass, and straw. A bit of sweet tarts and a dry finish.

Defreni (2463) - Husum, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2013
Flaske: Lysegul fuldstændig uklar øl med et fint hvidt skumhoved. Duften er let citrus, med en del brett. Tydelig hvede som i saison som grundøl. Smagen er let sur men igen en del hvede og citrus. Frisk og ekstrem drikbar øl. Fornemt.

Bottle. Pale cloudy yellow with a thick creamy white head. White grapes and lemon in the nose, soapy, light barnyard. Light sweetness overpowered by lactic sourness, crisp, apple, white pepper, dusty, hay. Fresh, light, sour. Good stuff.

Hazy golden color with fizzy white head. Nice lemony, funky brett, dry wood, dandelion aromas---smells like a quality gueze. light body, average carbonation. Quenching lemony tart flavors with dusty pale malt, cob webs, old books---very tasty sour.

Bottle from Blue Dog Lansdale. Pours hazy gold with off-white head and a lot of effervescence. Nose is yeasty tart apricotty and grapey fruit, tart lactic, lemongrassy hops. Tastes tart, lemony funky, with lively carbonation, hops, and pear and grapey finishing notes. Stays tart throughout, and very complex.

Pretty nice here. I got notes of hay, pears, citrus, lactose like funkyness that reminded me a bit of greek yogurt. The finish is very very yeasty and a bit harsh but overall I enjoyed this interesting beer.

Thanks to brystmar for sharing this bottle. Straw colored with a white head. The aroma is full of yeast, biscuit and lemons. The flavor is a mix of tart lemons as well as some wheat, lemons and grass. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice light sour beer.
