EtTuCthulhu (1386) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAY 29, 2013
This beer is a hazy golden color with a large white head that seems to fade at a mild pace, and the aroma combines hints of sour fruit, yeast, and rye. The taste is quite sour, slightly bitter, and a touch sweet, which doesn’t give me the balance and flavor combinations I expect when I see a "saison." Furthermore, the palate combines a medium body, soft carbonation, slick texture, and a sour finish.

Bright Orange-yellow only slightly cloudy. It looks filtered. Quick dissipating white head some legs. Aroma of Belgian yeast, co2, and alcohol comes across like markers. Taste is good though with bubblegum and banana. Slight funk going on as well. Watery mouthfeel. Would be great on a hot day in lieu of budweiser.

(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.

~Pils malt aroma, bready with lemon and peppery spice. Refreshing. ~Pours a hazy light gold color with big foamy lasting white head. ~Bitter lemon peel in flavor with lots of spice and earthy hops. Kinda a strange spice flavor combo in there. ~Medium light bodied with high CO2, frothy mouthfeel, lingering strange spice finish. ~Its a drinkable beer, but the strange spicy flavor is a turn off for me. Luckily got this on sale for $3.99 a six pack!

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.

$7.20 for a 6’er of this at WinCo of all places... Great deal! Pours into my HotD goblet with a 2 finger white head.. nice retention, but only splotchy lacing... the brew is hazed straw golden. The aromas are only okay in the traditional saison realm.. grainy/wheat malt presence.. I guess some minor peppery phenols, but no real fruity esters.. seems too malt dominant for a "saison". Could use any sort of Belgian esters. Very grainy on the palate.. not as dry on the palate as expected for the style.. light yeasty peppery quality.. perhaps some minor clove and even some bandaid. Wheat malt lays down a minor (very minor) tartness, but there is no yeasty sour notes to speak of. Body is thick for a saison.. the residual malts left on the palate accentuate this... and the carbonation isn’t really that good either. Despite all my above negatives, I see what the good folks at Big Sky were trying to accomplish and I would suggest a very different yeast. But for what this is, it is very, very refreshing and unlike anything the other breweries have in the cooler right now.... I will certainly buy it again... This should have been released in late spring.. Late night fire-pit parties, afternoon yard-work, and camping/fishing/hot-springing with an interesting/individual brew. Decent... I see the bones; but this should have been more adventurous and it would have been great (especially in a 6-pack).

Thisis12ptfont (1018) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Faint caramalized sugar, belgian yeast and coriander aroma.Yellowish gold with a fine foam rim. Immensly crisp and hoppy flavor upfront with a full bodied malt giving off dough, caramel, herbs and maple syrup. Finish is a strongly carbonated continuous hop flavor. Overall, this is actually really good. Pleasantly light yet, full flavored. I’d give this an A- rating.

Bottle. Pours slightly hazy copper with a nice head. Nose is mild citrus and some fruit. Taste is also very mild...citrus and some breadiness. Tart on the backend.

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a slightly cloudy straw-orange. Lots of off-white head. Aroma malt-forward, but with some yeasty ester notes as well. Body lively on tongue, finish very abrupt, maybe some hints of grass or spice? Not bad, just a little slight.
