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.

Thanks to Jon for the bottle share. Pours a hazy yellow with a one-finger soapy white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Lots of barnyard and musty hay aromas with some lemon zest and light pear in the background. Active carbonation with a light body. Light tart finish, crisp and refreshing. Fairly one-dimensional but a winner.

Gusher. Slightly cloudy gold (surprise!). Nose of yeast, white wine barrel dregs. Dry, high minerality, with some grapefruit pith. Drying, chalky minerality on a short finish.

This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy pale grapefruit color with a quickly dissipating slim foamy head. There was barely any lacing. The smell starts with a sour and bitter grapefruit rind, bold lemon pulp and rind - a light sweetness from the lemon rolls in to blend in with some light grape-like vinous-ness. Luckily, that part maintains a nice background. The taste was a moderately sweet to sour balance in the grapefruit and lemon rind. A quick dry grapefruit pith aftertaste runs into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a moderate ability of balancing between a sipping and sessionable sour drying feel on my tongue. Overall, this was a pretty nice sour ale that I’m pretty sure I’d have again.

neongolden (1101) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2015
(500ml bottle from kihoskh.dk) Pours a hazy medium gold with a big bubbly active white head fading to a ring with lace. Aroma bright and a bit tart/sour with under-ripe pear, apple skin, white wine, touch of stone fruit, with light lemon lacto and background notes of hay and a bit of yeasty earthy funk. Palate is lightly sour/tart with a softly sweet crackery malt core. Reasonably fruity, white wine with under-ripe stone fruits, lemon zest, a little gooseberry, hay, light dried herbs. Finish lightly tart, dry and mineral. Lingering citrus zest and white grape, a bit of grain and hay. Very soft touch of funk. Light-medium body with fairly high effervescent carb. Not too sour, a little fruity, and not very funky - it’s a whole blend of fermenting agents but not too punchy with any of them. Makes a better base for the "Funky Gold" beers than solo, but it’s not bad by any means.

[Bottle (500ml) shared with GregClow, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o j&m] Pours a cloudy yellow-gold with an average size diminishing frothy white head. Aroma is sour along with grain, light hops and fruit. Slightly sour flavour follows. Dry finish. Average bodied. Just good, not great.
