COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Forhåbentlig fornærmer vi ikke nogen ved at sige, at når det handler om godt øl, så var der lidt langt mellem snapsene I Oklahoma - indtil for ganske få pr siden. Ind på scenen trådte så brødrene Healey, Colin og Chase, med stort mod, personlighed og et stort talent for at brygge øl. Og resten er vist historie, som man siger…
Prairie Artisan Ales - oprindeligt et fantombryggeri - blev hurtigt et af de mest omtalte bryggerier, ikke bare i Oklahoma, ikke bare i USA men i hele verden. Så da disse gode mennesker blev inviteret til at deltage i Copenhagen Beer Celebration, var det kun naturligt også at invitere dem til Amager Bryghus. Og den øltype vi valgte til dette samarbejdsbryg skulle naturligvis være en Farmhouse Saison, en stil som netop Prairie har excelleret i.
Her på bryghuset er en af de ansatte stadig frygtelig flov over at have sovet igennem et tornadovarsel på et motelværelse et sted i Oklahoma for år tilbage. Så ud af respekt for vejrguderne besluttede vi os for at kalde denne øl for "Tulsa Twister" - om nogen er Oklahoma jo USA’s tornadostat nr. 1. Lige så larmende og frygtindgydende en tornado er, lige så afslappede og hyggelige er fyrene fra Prairie. Vi havde en fornøjelig brygdag i al venskabelighed. Vi håber det afspejles i øllet.

English: Hopefully we don’t insult anybody by claiming that Oklahoma was quite a beer wasteland until just recently. Then, along came the brothers Healey, Colin and Chase, with guts, stamina and an awful lot of talent. And well, the rest is history… Prairie - originally a gypsy operation - soon became one of the most buzzed about craft breweries, not only in Oklahoma, not only in the US, but in the world. So when these dudes were invited to the Copenhagen Beer Celebration it was only natural for us to invite them to Amager also. And naturally the style chosen for our collaboration had to be a Farmhouse Saison, a style that Prairie has very much excelled at brewing. One of the Amager crew is still terribly ashamed of sleeping through a tornado warning at a motel room somewhere in Oklahoma years ago, so out of respect for the powers from above we named the beer "Tulsa Twister". As loud and frightening as a twister is, as cool and laid back are the dudes from Prairie. We had a great day of brewing and friendship - we hope it shows in the beer.

TET (3061) - Kaarina, FINLAND - AUG 15, 2017
A light yellow beer, a head is big andblond. Aroma has strong citrus with a tropical notes, pepper, some sourness. Taste has citrus, some tropical fruitness, also bitterness and spicyness, balanced sourness is refreshning. Medium bodied, high carbonation as expected. Refreshning, more complexicity to traditional gives the tropical notes and stronger sourness.

TeijoA (73) - Turku, FINLAND - AUG 14, 2017
Hazy yellow color, white head. Nose is fresh citrus fruit, orange, something sweet, pale malt. Very fresh smell, taste continues along those lines. Citrus first and foremost with a noticeable but fairly low amount of bitterness, medium carbonation. Really nice taste and palate, although maybe a bit short. Makes you want to take another sip, extremely drinkable.

[Bottle (500ml) shared w/ HogTownHarry & GregClow] Pours a murky gold with a large lasting frothy white head. Aroma is quite yeasty, fruity and herbal along with some hops, Flavour’s quite nice: yeasty, hoppy and herbal. Alcohol’s fairly well hidden. Medium bodied. I quite liked this.

azzurro (280) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2017
Got this one from LCBO Spring 2017 collection. I thought it was more of an IPA than a saison, therefore an ok saison.

Bottle from the LCBO. Cloudy golden yellow with a big pillowy white head. Nice bright aroma of grass, straw, lemon meringue, faint peach. Sweetish lemon with a big grass component to the flavour that is quite lovely. High carbonation.

Oakes (17815) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2017
Hazy, thin head. Has a touch phenolic character, with a bit of autolysis maybe? Not a major factor in this beer. Has a mellow malt, just a hint of brett, alcohol and a dash of malt.

3.5
adamnowek (2814) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 11, 2017
Completely opaque. Bright straw yellow. Bubbly little head. Aroma is lots of grains and hay. Quite tart with a grainy and grassy undertone.

mcberko (18060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2017
On tap at Farmhouse Fest, pours a cloudy dull golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out funky feet, earthy notes, and biscuity malt. Flavour is a little better, with saison yeast, cereal malt and light earth. Lightly funky and fairly earthy on the finish. Too obscured and muddled for me. Decent.
