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.

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.

Funky/lactic aroma is intense. Did I mention lactic? High carb, fades quick thankfully.

Hay, mild yeast funk, grapes, soured grains, lemony, yeasty bitterness at the end. Improves as you drink. Tasty.

Aroma: (8- very high quality) Cheesecloth hits the nose first, then followed by lemon. There’s some malt character reminiscent of hay and a puff of dandelion. Appearance: (2- below average) Fairly unsightly pour; cloudy gold, very carbonated (looked like soda) and a white head that dissipated within moments. Flavor: (7- noteworthy quality) Cheesecloth really takes a backseat to moderately sour lemon; the flavor trails off with some dry floral notes. Wish this had as much character as the nose promised. Palate: (4- high quality) medium body, sticky texture, lively carbonation, long finish. Overall: Just a little above middle of the road for me; still I’m happy to know that OK is making some noise in the beer world.

Bottle in Eagle with friends. Pour is hazy yellow with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Pears, green apples, pineapple, bretty, lightly herbal, straw, medicinal, light banana, mango, and slightly grassy aroma. Taste is fruity, pineapple, tart lemons, bretty, straw, a hint of banana, papaya, biscuit, bretty, and medicinal with a medium tart finish. Light body with high carbonation. Seriously easy-drinking sour with great fruit notes.
