Prairie Gold is a dry, highly effervescent saison fermented with a mix of ale yeast, wine yeast, lactobacillus and 2 strains of brettanomyces.

Bottle split 4 ways at tasting.

A: Hazy and yellow. 2 finger thick foamy head. Exactly what a sour farmhouse ale should look like.

S: Notes of lemon, hay, brett and citrus. Pretty good nose on this beer. This is what a summer beer should smell like.

T: Wow, I could drink glass after glass of this on a hot day. This to me might be the most perfect beer for summer that I have ever tasted. In layman's terms, it tastes like a earthy, funky saison lemondade. Tart, refreshing, funky and lemon. Delicious.

M: Good carbonation so it really was clean on the finish and on the tongue.

O: I have yet to have anything other than an outstanding beer from Prairie and these guys are quickly becoming my must-have brewery every time I go to the bottle shop. This was outstanding. Nice work PAA.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Very cloudy yellow body. Medium sized white head. Big bubbles, but not many of them.

Smell - Much like a berliner. Tartness. Fruity. Grainy malt dominates.

Taste - Again much like a berliner. Tart. Citrusy. Juicy tartness. Slight bit of funk to it, but only a hint. Again very grainy.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation. Moderate tartness. Light bodied.

Overall - Didn't expect something so Berliner-y. Tasty. Monotonous.

Pours a super effervescent gold with nice noisiness & a rapidly falling pearl colored head. Some lacing & head retention, bubbles cling to the glass stubbornly

S: Wet grainyness & cereal, apple skins & a bit of dirty funk.

T: Green apples, lemons & tartness, plus a bit of grapefruit up front. Tartness, apple skins & grapefruit as this warms, much sourness as well. Finishes puckery, sour, with pears, grapefruit & a touch of apple skin

MF: Light bodied, lively carbonation, very puckery

Through the roof drinkability, this would be a nice one to put in 4 packs

Thanks to thewimperoo for sharing this one!

Murky orange juice-like appearance, initial frothy foam that settles quickly to a skim. Opaque with tiny champagne streamers around the edges.

Fruity citrus aroma, reminds me of a mimosa.

Bright and tart, quenching and dry in the aftertaste. Spritzy feel. Light grapefruit and unripe grapes. Firm tart feel, puckering and sticks in the teeth. Smooth and medium bodied. Overall a nice sour ale, similar to Standard and Prairie Ale somewhat.

Thanks willandperry, just loving this Prairie Artisan stuff!

Appearance. Pours a hazy straw gold with two fingers of frothy white head.

Smell. Lemons, dry brett, green grapes and red apples, wood and some musty funk.

Taste. Sour green grapes and woody white wine. There's a bit of dry brett funk and a bit of musty basement as well.

Mouthfeel. Lighter body, medium-strong fine and lively carbonation.

Overall. Probably the worst of the P.A. beers but that's not necessarily a bad thing. A nice sour that I would drink often if available here, just not quite as good at their other offerings.
