Good Groovy Time

Prairie Artisan Ales
Vape Tricks
Sour Ale Aged on Cherries 
5.9% Abv
McAlester, Oklahoma

Psychedelic blur of orangey red that blends up into magenta and a super pale peppermint pink head. Right out of top of the pour pops strawberries, raspberries, cherries and cherry soda with lemon zest and vanilla cream on the end. First tingly sip and oof that is a tastebud wakeup! Tangy raspberries, tart cherries, Lemonhead candy, a touch of Sour Patch Kids, and it has a little oomph to it too. So perfectly beautiful on this hot hazy day.

Pairs with Cheez-It’s: Whoo…it goes all Warhead sour candy pucker up! I could go either way, just depends on the day.

This is my 3rd from Prairie Artisan Ales…so far I like what I see and sip. Each has been scrumptous and somewhere in them there’s also a fun trip down memory lane of childhood flavors tucked in. Halfway through the first glass an Austin Powers vibe popped into my head. “Vape Tricks” is just asking to turn on some good ol’ Strawberry Alarm Clock and get groovy with some “Incense & Peppermints”!

Welcome Confusion

Prairie Artisan Ales
Cocoa Berry Imperial Pastry Sour
Sour Ale with orange, lemon, lime, raspberry, blueberry, grapefruit, cacao nibs, and toasted marshmallow
7.9% ABV
McAlester, Oklahoma

Bright bubbly raspberry pour with a light pink head. Ok this keeps changing each sniff. There’s raspberries, blueberries, strawberries come flying right out and then all of a sudden hit with Cocoa Krispies marshmallow treats from childhood that have been toasted. First sip is lemon-lime-raspberry crush. It now tastes exactly what the label says (orange, lemon, lime, raspberry, blueberry, grapefruit, cacao nibs, and toasted marshmallow) and is really fun but also confusing at the same time but in a good way. It’s like a new unexpected gift with each sip.

Pairs with Cheez-It’s: Ack please no never ever ugh

This delicious sour ale has made a tune get stuck in my head. At least it’s an oldie but goodie classic (and still timely) or I would go insane. I had forgotten how good this song is! Love and Rockets – Ball Of Confusion.

Searching for that Nut

Prairie Artisan Ales
Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
Sour Ale with pineapples, pecans, cherries and yellow cake
4.9% ABV
Tulsa, Oklahoma

Color golden somewhat fuzzy with very little head. After the pour it’s toasty-cakey and pineapple. Tilt back the glass and take a sip and it’s tart, pineapple smashed with cherries, lemon salt and sweetness, and then toasty after taste but not sure I’m finding pecans. They may faintly be there mixed into that toast. I grew up on fresh ones from my Granny’s trees. I never understood how they were so pricey in the stores. All we had to do was throw a stick up in the tree, and they’d come raining down. We’d spend hours in the living room near the fireplace cracking and picking them. That’s one of my happier family memories. It’s the simple things in life you cherish.

Pairs with Cheez-It’s: Hmmm not so sour. More of that cake.

This is a light fun easy drinking sour-gose. Don’t over think it. Just relax, enjoy it, and take the break you deserve in this tipsy topsy upside-down world.
