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.

wedgie9 (2633) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Tasted on 9/21/13 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle purchased at Louisville Beer Store. Pours cloudy yellow with a massive, foamy perfectly white head that slowly recedes to thin, bubbly lace. The nose is dry and funky, almost Champagne-like yeastiness with a touch of tart lemon pith, and a bit of a wheaty malt aroma. The flavor is very similar, with a tart, yet very lightly sweet preserved lemon, a bit more of a biscuity flavor than suggested on the nose, and plenty of dry, funky yeast. The body is fairly light with sparkling carbonation and a very long, faintly sweet, but very tart preserved lemon finish.

Gription79 (2830) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - SEP 28, 2016
Poured from 500ml bottle. Cloudy golden with no head retention. Notes of apple and pear. Brettanomyces tropical fruitiness in both aroma and flavor. A tasty beer without a ton of sourness. Nice.

Studoffsky (90) - POLAND - JUN 2, 2016
Z kranu. Przedziwne piwo, mimo skromnej nazwy mnóstwo się w nim dzieje. Amerykański farmhouse ale fermentowany drożdżami piwnymi, winnymi, brettami i lactobacillusem. Brzmi jak przepis na katastrofę do której na szczęście nie doszło. Aromat „guezopodobny” z nutą cytrusową. Mocna drobnopęcherzykowa piana i silne wysycenie. W smaku różne odcienie kwaśności na zmianę z odchmielową cytrusowością, oczywiście nuty piwniczne i stajenne też gdzieś w tle przemykają. Wszystko to dobrze się łączy w spójną, bardzo pijalną całość. Nie każdego to piwo urzeknie, mnie smakowało bardzo.

johnnnniee (3793) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 11, 2016
Bottle from a trade. Hazy light gold with huge carbonation that constantly feeds a pillowy bubbly white head. Lemons tart cherries and earth funky hit my nostrils first. Earthy with faint bready malts and spice deep underneath. The flavor is mostly tart lemony with bits of sour cherry and vinous notes. Earthy funk rounds this out nicely. Medium body spirited carbonation. Pretty decent funky saison.

Kita (1899) - Koper, SLOVENIA - MAY 1, 2016
Bottle, 0.50l. Initial pour with an explosion and 1rd of a beer spilt :( Hazy deep straw color with thin frothy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma is vinous, yeasty, citric and funky with brett note. Taste starts sour citric and light sweet grainy, following is vinous, funky, mild peppery and smooth lacto, mouthfeel is crisp and dry, while finish is mild bitter. Light body, thin texture and average carbonation in palate. 7% ABV not felt at all, very refreshing...
