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.

Bottle from soonerchamps. This pours a golden color with a short-lived white head. Thin wispy lacing glides along the sides of the glass but doesn’t ever amount to much. The aroma shows sour tropical fruits of peach and lemon, with some lavender as well. Notes of flowers, grass, and funky yeast round out the scent. This is crisp and tart going down with citric acidity tingling the back of the throat. Some lemon, grass, and funky flavors throughout. Light herbal undertones add a nice element with a touch of floral sweetness. There’s a bit of a wine/champagne character, but that’s pretty common with the yeast used here. Clean and dry; definitely a good palate cleanser. Not their best, but no doubt another good one from Prairie; this is becoming the norm by now. It’s refreshing, with the right amount of sourness and funk for my tastes.

Terminus (3319) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle-purchased at Broadway Liquors in OKC April 2013 Pours hazy golden yellow with barely any head. looks really dull. very fizzy carbonation but still no head. nose is of green grapes, lactic acid, barnyard funk, champaign (fruity). flavors exhibit a lemon sourness with notes of green grapes, champaign and a touch of lite brett. really not all that interesting. the body suffers from high carbonation however, i think thats what they were trying to go for in this beer. the flavors suffer though-not much going on really. just alot of green grapes and lemon drop. Has a touch of Gueze-like qualities in terms of the funk but thats where it ends. A decent beer but so far, the least best of the bunch from this brewery.

Tmoney99 (11623) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle. Poured a clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour and complex fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth tingly texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & fruit sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer for style.

Lukaduke (2549) - 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.

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.

kaser (3694) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Had this on draft at cheese shop in Des Moines. Fluorescent yellow pour. Smells like a lemon sweet tart. Dry and somewhat smooth taste. Fruity. Almost like a wine

maxwelldeux (4102) - Snohomish, 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 (7636) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, 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.
