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.

Panzuriel (1952) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2015
Large bottle (500 ml? pint? didn’t mark it in my notes) purchased at Aficionados in Lewis Center, OH. Prairie Prairie Gold was a very hazy medium golden brew with a firm head of off white bubbles. Nose was lemon sour with traces of earthy funk. Taste was mildly tart. Quite a restrained sour with some hints of peach and citrus. Body was medium and a bit fizzy. A very nice sour, perhaps I should try more. I am afraid the first few have turned me completely off to the style, but more of this and I’d come right back.

malrubius (2584) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Bottle from Brewfest. Total gusher despite sitting still in fridge for two days. Gushed the head right off. Peachy pale orange no head or lace. White wine pear aroma. Mild tropical fruit and peach sweetness with mild tart citrusy white wine tartness. Medium light body almost flat since the "effervescence" gushed right out the top of the bottle and fizzed off the beer. Pretty much a waste of $12.

jercraigs (9835) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2015
2015-10-09. Hazy yellow body with a small off-white head. 3+ Aroma is mild, lightly fruity, touch of grapes. Flavour is lightly sour, refreshing, moderate fruit. Average bodied palate, good carbonation. The guy on the label that is clearly trying to have sex with that goose is a bit disturbing. Decent but a bit simpler than I had hoped for. Bottle from Aurora Brew Works, Buffalo.

jredmond (7458) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2015
Bottle shared with Paul, Linh and Ken. Pours a hazy golden amber body with large white head. Aroma is funky wheat and tart fruit. Mouthfeel is tart, soft and sessionable with notes of soft fruit, tart candy, funk, barn, earthy bretty yeast and oak. Nice.

Yorker (1934) - Herning, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2015
50 cl bottle @ home. Pours hazy yellow with some sediment and a white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are lemons, flowers, and yeast - with a tart finish.

kidmartinek (4664) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Rich, opaque gold color. Minimal white ring. Smells mildly sour and like Belgian church yeast. Flavor is sweet old church smell and harshly dry.

jgb9348 (5677) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Cloudy golden and copper coloured body with a soda-like head that fades just as fast as you can pour it. Aroma of yeast, grass, pale grass, wheat, sour grapes and way more yeast - strong. Medium-bodied; Assertive sour flavour with brett very noticeable, coupled with some lemons, grass, herbs, wheat and a dry finish, like a saison showing some white pepper too. Aftertaste shows the brett flavours coupled with a dry yeast note that feels like a belgian pale ale with a little extra sweetness at the end. Overall, a good beer, but way overrated just from the print on the label. A solid brett-based saison with a touch of sour notes and some complexity, but not worth the price nor trying to find this out of the ordinary. I sampled this 50 cL bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 19-June-2015 for US$12,00 sampled at home in Washington on 04-October-2015.

dhatton (241) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Pours murky golden straw body with loose white head that vanishes rather quickly. Massively carbonated evidenced by steady upward stream of bubbles. Aroma is lemon zest, sour lactics, mild grass, sea salt, and teases of heady funk. Tart acidic lemon warhead taste that melds into a velvety finish, even though the carbonation level is crazy fizzy up front. Definite white wine characteristics present along with notes of hay and glimpses of brett. Light bodied, super refreshing and drinkable.
