    I just got my first Bomb in trade. I've seen Red and Gold. Mine showed up without wax.

    What's the significance of the color or lack of wax?

    Cheers!

    Usually Gold= Batch1, Red=Batch2, and Blue=Batch3. I don't know what the significance of yours showing up without wax is though; never seen that before.

    The guy should have told you wax was missing before he shipped. I might have passed on it, you never know who your dealing with unless it's a repeat trade partner.

    So I got some this week without wax in a trade as well, my trading partner said that he bought them in Arkansas, and since they cant legally sell singles they came in a 4 pk and the bottles were not waxed.

    Anyone else see this?

    I've bought four or five in SF and they all had red wax.

    Email the company and see if they are aware of this. This would be a sure fire way to find out if they make them without wax.

    I work for Prairies Arkansas distributor. Because Arkansas law prohibits single bottle sales lower than 16.9 oz we were shipped Bomb in 4 packs without wax. These bottles came from Batch 2 which I believe had the red wax. Be not afraid these are real bottles of Prairie Bomb.........About 1200 bottles were sold this way in Arkansas.

    Does the batch number really matter? I've never had a Prairie Bomb. Does any of the flavors fall off after awhile?

    I've had gold and red wax. I found much more pepper in the gold (1st batch) than the red.

    I bought a 36 bottles in AR, none had wax. Prairie replied to a post on Facebook about it, confirming the above, that AR was not waxed.

    So far my favorite batch is the recently released Blue wax from OK, I've had fresh multiples of each release and the latest has the most amazing coffee flavor that the others don't. I'll be hanging on to my last gold wax, but I'm shipping all my red out for blues lol.

    Mine seems to have pink wax. Any idea what that means? Is that just me misinterpreting the color? Does each batch and color signify a different year? Man what an awesome beer!!! How hard is this beer to get? Is it shelf beer in some areas or is it pretty tough to come by? I got a bottle from a nice BA from Texas who came up and I offered to show him around to as many local stores as he had tome to hit. The other beer he gave me (Saint Arnold Bishops 5) was off the hook too. Two of the nicest new beers I have tasted in a LONG time.

    How hard is it to come by in the areas of distribution?

    Sad Bomb hasn't hit here yet. The other Prairie beers we've gotten so far have been great though

    I think some of the pink wax batches came out very light and are mistaken for white wax. That is my understanding.

    I'm kind of a newbie, but the four I acquired have orange wax on them. What is the significance of the orange wax?
