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.

Lukaduke (2181) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Pours a pale golden color with a finger of fizz... On the nose its tart fruity, yogurt, white grape juice and grapefruit. On the palate its a little thin and fizzy almost a berliner with less malt. Nice but was expecting a little more funk to go with the tartness.

adnielsen (9077) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle @ Crooked Stave ROY-G-BIV Day. Thanks to whomever shared this! Pours a golden appearance with a white head. A bit musty, champagne-like, funky, white grape, pear aroma. Flavor is super drinkable with notes of apples, light banana, spicy yeast, light funk, and flowers.

maxwelldeux (3662) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear dark golden color with almost no head on it. Nose is extremely light with some very subtle champagne notes to it. Taste is quite sour and will make you pucker with some dry wine-like notes to it and a very subtle sweetness on the finish. Interesting...

deyholla (6633) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a fizzy white head that dissipates near immediately to the edges. Aroma has a strong sour note with a bit of a wine like tartness and a decent amount of barnyard funk. Flavor has a good amount of acid with a touch of lemon and sour wine grapes with a touch of underlying funk. Wine grapes add an interesting dynamic.

joeneugs (3240) - Livermore, California, USA - MAY 15, 2013
750 ml. bottle. It pours a nice, clear pale yellow with a disappearing white head. Lots of effervescence. The aroma jumps out with notes of sour white grapes, pear, peaches and a touch of white vinegar and pepper. The flavor is sharply acidic with a lot of the same flavors as noted in the aroma. Very light body and lots of fizziness that gives the impression of soda water without much malt or hop character. This one is all about the mixed fermentation. I would have liked a bit more funk, as it’s not noticeable at all. A bit lacto heavy and on the simple side, but pretty enjoyable.

marcus (6489) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Bottle from City Beer. Pours clear golden with a modest white head and a perfumy aroma. There is a pleasantly sour light malt flavor with a dry fruity finish. A fairly simple beer that tastes great.
