Orange, with a ring of foam. smells toasty, some corn notes, some subtle smoky notes. Taste is citrusy, lemony, with some, I don’t know, Cheerio aromas? I get some white wine, too. A little heavy on the malty flavors.

Tap @ App. Vintner - pours pineapple gold, white head, lots of bubbles. Lots of tropical fruits, lemon, white wine, and some to round it all out. Sour dry finish. Very nice!

Poured from bottle, pours a very hazy goldish yellow with no head, the bottle did gush quite a bit when I popped it, the aroma is quite funky and the flavor has a sharp tart and sour front end with a sour finish as well, good stuff

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16.9 oz bottle from Binnys South Loop (Chicago, IL). Pours a hazy golden banana hue, yellow glow and decent hazy body makes this a touch darker. Slow gusher is well carbonated, cakey bright white head atop is sizable with good retention, firm layer remains and laces well enough. Aromas are tart and citric, touches of lemon, pineapple, mellow yogurt and acidity meet green apple, dry grainy malts and straw. A bit dusty, funky, cracked grains and subtle fruity esters peek out from behind. Yogurty, tart, a bit spicy and yeasty. Initial is lighter end of the fold in body, nice jabs of creamy tartness, smoothed out lemon, crab apple and subtle pineapple. Dry, cleaner body is crisp, a bit grainy with nice tart and sour play. Some sour pear, citric lemon and smoothed yogurty acidity. A bit grainy, more funk and dryness as we round the corner. A bit of apple, funk and cobwebs. Dry straw, grainy and funky elements. Some earth, tartness and mellow yet growing bitterness and a faint metallic twangy feel. Overall this is dry, a bit spritzy and firmly funky into the backend. While the front offers some intriguing sour fruit elements, a lighter body and appealing fruit profile, this one dries out, bitters up and funks a bit more as we trail out. This is nice. A solid base, easily crushable. I can see how the hopped versions of this evolve so well, letting the hops build on that well crafted sour wild base and giving it some complexity in nose and into the backend. A nose that runs the gambit, mellow, tart, funky and grainy with a front end that really grabs me, quickly gets dry and funky into the back. Nice.

500mL bottle poured into a Prairie Tulip glass -- very Hazy straw/blonde color. Nose was kinda funky a little sweet smelling. Flavor was like a soured Belgian pale, still a little sweet with the Belgian flavors from the yeast. Interesting, pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Somewhat disappointed. Bottle was over-carbonated so upon opening, the beer spilled out onto the counter. I was only able to save about half of it. That being said, the beer pours a cloud dull gold, no head or lacing. Tangy, citrus aromas. Somewhat bubbly mouthfeel, big sour notes. Hints of grapefruit, tart lemon, wheat. Lots of yeast and brett all around. This is a nice, funky beer, but it wasn’t carbonated properly, which is disappointing.

Prairie Artisan Ales Prairie Gold is a uniquely refreshing drink and a great beer, too. Cloudy orange pour with no head. Not much aroma. Mouth feel is effervescent with lemon-lime notes and a touch of funk. Prairie Gold is really good overall.
