Review: Prairie Artisan Ales Flare

The gose style had been gaining a lot of popularity and I’m happy to see several being brewed in the state. This one is a little higher in ABV than your average gose, and served up in a 500 ml bottle. Let’s see what Prairie can do with it.

Company: Prairie Artisan Ales

Location: Tulsa, OK. Brewed in Krebs, OK

ABV: 5.4%

Style/Description: Gose Ale Brewed With Orange and Coriander

Price: $9 (500ml bottle)

Appearance: Clear gold pour, straw, nice fluffy head and clinging lace. Nice rising bubbles.

Nose: Tart and bitter aroma, lemon zest and citrus aroma. Some beery, grainy esters as the beer warms.

Taste: Lots of fruit flavors happening here, orange peel and tart grapefruit with some mild sweet peach and mango notes. A tangy beery malt base balances out some of the dainty hops. Some peppery spice and vegetal coriander tones, saison ester notes.  I’m not getting much salt from this gose, the body is a tad thick for the style, and the carb seems a bit low.

Finish: Sticky bitter fruits linger on the back of the palate, with mild earthy funk.

Overall: Nice brew, lots of citrus flavors in this one. I wish the carb was higher and it was a little drier, but the flavor is pretty tasty. This gose is a refreshing addition to the Prairie arsenal, I’d love to see this in cans for the lake!

Rating: 3.5/5
