Beer added by: AlexFields on 03-22-2013

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.

Very musty, dry yeast aroma. A little dry malt & pear is present as well, but overall the nose is a litlle absent. Lots of bubbly, champagne-like carbonation and mouthfeel. Notes of floral hops, white grape and chalky barnyard yeast form the taste. Faint honeycomb as well. Very crisp and quite dry though a little resin is present. Easy to drink with a concise, elegant profile with just a little yeast funk to stir the pot. Great brew. (442 characters)

3.75-4 I was a little surprised how quickly the flavor dissipated. Look and aroma are the best parts of this beer. (114 characters)

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. (789 characters)
