Not the best saison. Stale and lacking the tartness of the best of them. Hops are understated, as is the alcohol content.

Pours hazy gold, lots of head. Nose of citrus, lemon, flowers. Very full bodied, a tad bitter, bread, yeast, some mild citrus notes, floral on the end. A wonderful beer!

Poured from bottle into snifter...a beautiful poor by the way, very photogenic. Cloudy bright gold with a good, lasting white head. Floral and citrus nose. Great body and feel...leaves a soured aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

arminjewell (5718) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of corn, grain, some biscuit, hints of spice, slight grassy notes, pretty bland. Taste is similar, mix of slight corn, grain, hints of honey, slight grass, finishing clean, slightly dry. Subpar compared to other Big Sky offerings.

12oz bottle poured into a Christoffel thin tulip glass. Pretty fresh beer, just got to town. Pours is nice with vigorous carbonation visible in the golden beer that creates a medium thick head with very long retention. Generally speaking this is a banana ester rich beer, not as strong as Chimay but still strong. However, it is well attenuated, not sweet. Yeasty dough around with some herb and spice off the yeast as well. I like it b/c I am a fan of banana esters but I understand why this beer is scoring lower. In general, for this brewer its a very nice accomplishment. Usually Belgians come off too estery or too sweet but this isn’t. For the price of a six pack its a very good deal.

Had it on tap at Owen & Engine, poured a clear yellowish hue, with even lacing and slight but lasting head. The taste is very saisony, with a smooth finish.very middle of the road.

ttoadee (550) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 26, 2013
Cloudy gold, limited white head. Yeasty nose, slightly bitter. Not quite ripe melon & pepper in the middle, a little flat. Finish is dry...missing something.

mbgrayson (505) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - APR 26, 2013
Twelve ounce bottle, a limited release. Pours a cloudy golden color, with a long lasting white head. Aroma is thinly of hops. Taste is typical of a Saison. Good flavor, but this isn’t my favorite style. Thumbs up.

(bottle) Drank during one of the nicer days of the year so far, so felt the style was appropriate for the weather. Pours out a clear gold color with a large, fluffy white head and solid levels of lacing. Yeast pour introduces plenty of haziness. Aroma holds some pizza crust, oregano, coriander, light banana, and faint soap bar. The flavor holds substantial cracker and bread notes, especially shining through on the finish, with further flavors of faint banana, mild but herbal hops in the mid, and a lingering finish of grain holding well on after drinking. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is a bit subdued for the style. Overall a decent saison that would be great for the upcoming summer weather.
