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.

gururyan (665) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - APR 12, 2013
Poured from 750 into snifter, very hazy light gold in color, little to no head, bubbles more like a champagne. Very sour upfront, then tames down to a lemon bitter. Not bad, will discuss this one and their others with the Prairie brewers at the upcoming craft beer tasting next weekend. This is no session brew, feels like I’m suckin’ on those Warhead sour candies.

Yorker (1758) - 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.

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 (5173) - 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 (215) - 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.

BelgianBeerGal (3457) - Panama City, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2015
Bottle courtesy of Moose but enjoyed in a lovely paper tumbler courtesy of the Niceville Hampton Inn. Hazy gold color with big time carbonation and a huge white head. Big, tart, sour aroma that hits you from across the table. The flavor has hints of white grapefruit and is pleasantly sour but not overpowering. Pretty nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg at Rainbow event at Beavertown, London. It pours a hazy golden color with medium white head. Aroma is lightly tangy and acidic, some brett some citrus some hay. Taste is medium dry and lightly tangy and acidic with more notes of lemon hay and apricots. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, good but quite simple

Beavertown Spectrum Fest. Keg. Lightly hazy gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry, mild fine carbonation. Medium tart lemon, sweetish florlaness and a touch of something sweet - nutty. Not bad. Light finish.
