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.

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 Iím suckiní on those Warhead sour candies.

500 ml bottle shared. The beer is a bazy vold color with a velvety head of white foam. The aroma has a juicy funk to it, that comes across with a lot of tropical fruit and a bit of floral bite. The taste has that juicy sweetness and some very mild tartness. Not really sour, but it seems as though it wants to be. Medium carbonation with a velvety, yet spritzy mouthfeel. Medium body.

16.9 ounce bottle, julian date of 13515 printed on the bottle (May 15, 2015). Well, this one was a gusher. Served in a Prairie Teku, the beer pours a hazy gold color with about a couple inch white head that fizzled away quickly. Aroma is nice but subtle. It smells like lemon, hay, and white grapes/wine. The taste also seems muted to me. There was also some pear and earthy flavors noticeable. Itís a nice tasting brew, but I just wish the flavors (well, and the aroma) were stronger. Mouthfeel/body is light, and it has a good amount of carbonation. It has the makings of being a pretty good brew, but for whatever reason the flavor and aroma just seemed weak. Iíll have to try another batch of this in the future. $9.99 a bottle.

Thanks to Jon for the bottle share. Pours a hazy yellow with a one-finger soapy white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Lots of barnyard and musty hay aromas with some lemon zest and light pear in the background. Active carbonation with a light body. Light tart finish, crisp and refreshing. Fairly one-dimensional but a winner.
