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.

Pours a cloudy straw color with a small white head with tiny bubbles that settles to a bit of film and ring and leaves minimal lacing. Aroma of light lemon, wet hay and a mild spiciness. Taste of lemon zest, mild tartness followed by sweetness, earthy funk that comes across with a bit of perceived spiciness and finishes with some white grape and a nice breadiness. Finishes dry and slightly tart. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and effervescent carbonation. Not as tart as I expected which was fine. Also not very complex but still mouthwatering and good.

Dr_Fellini (976) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2015
Bottle to glass. Infected. Absolute foam explosion. After that settled down, pours a very hazy yellow light apricot color with an off white fizzy head. Aroma is slightly sweet, nice barnyard funk, but really no tartness. Flavor has a touch of sweet and funk, but again, no sour. Overall a decent beer, but wish it wouldn’t have exploded. Would also like a little more sour.

HonkeyBra (3849) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUN 12, 2015
500 ml bottle. The bottle is a gusher, so watch out. Pours a hazed golden with a medium white head. Aroma of dust, tropical fruits, farm, some citrus notes. Flavor is sour and sweet. Medium palate, slick bodied, above average carbonation. A bit of a coating mouthfeel. Finishes with hay and bready sweetness.

DrSilverworm (9083) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2015
500ml bottle, from Dutch’s. Bottle foamed a bit while opening. Hazy golden orange color. Thin off-white head, fizzes away to minimal. Smooth, kind of soft, light to moderate carbonation. Mildly dry. Nice oaky lemony aroma. Sort of peppery and spicy. Belgian saison yeast. Satisfying moderate-plus sour taste. Light to moderate sweet. Light bitter. Nice mild dry finish. Tasty stuff. Nice to sip alongside my Penn Station Philadelphia Cheese Steak.

DrunkSanta410 (727) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Bottle at home. Bright golden pour, just a flash of head. Hazy with visible sediment in the glass. Aroma is Brett, funky, citrus, faint tart acidity. Taste is yeast, Brett, grapes, light white wine flavor and acidity. Faint tartness. Bright and bubbly on the palate. Pretty good.

Beachmaster (269) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a cloudy straw yellow, with a huge white head that quickly fades. No lacing. Nose is citrus and funk. Taste is mild lemons with a funk finish. Very carbonated. Smooth, refreshing, pleasantly sour without becoming astringent. Very well balanced. Outstanding sour.

arminjewell (8842) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 2, 2015
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of bread, biscuit, vanilla, hints of orange peel into a bit of nice lemon peel, touch of funk and oaky notes. Taste was a mix of lemon, biscuit, bread into a bit of orange, slight oak, finishing fairly dry, slightly tart. Pretty nice.

Bottle thanks to Eric. Pours a cloudy yellow with small frothy off white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is strong funk and lemon zest. Thin mouth strong tart lemon and nice funk, very light, lingering sourness, really enjoyed this one.

Bottle sample. Hazy golden yellow color, fluffy white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of peppery dusty cobwebs and lemons left in attic corners. Taste has barnyard tumbleweeds and citrus. Very tasty.
