A golden orange color with a big rocky off white head with nice retention and good lacing. I get lemon and orange zest aroma with a little funk and grain on the nose. Taste light fruit, orange and banana, with quite a bit of toasted grain and a bit of pepperiness. Has a saltine cracker flavor mid palate and finishes semi dry with a slight bitterness and more grain. Soft mouthfeel with a light/medium body and medium carbonation. A little clean and a bit off for the style. Could use some more funk and less grain, but not a bad tasting beer.

$7.20 for a 6íer 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 isnít 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).

Brush Tail left me underwhelmed. Itís a sad thing, too. I like this brewery and I love farmhouse ales. I tend to be fairly open-minded when it comes to this category because these beers are so diverse. While Brush Tail offers some flavor of yeast and smoke, thereís just not enough. A farmhouse ale has to have big, mature flavors, and Brush Tail simply doesnít offer that. Still, for a 12 ounce version, it isnít awful.

Gold, hazy. off-white head. Grainy-sweet malt with some cornlike notes, a little hay, some light herbal and earthy notes. Finishes grainy and relatively dry, with some lingering herbal notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wittales (733) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Appearance was cloudy light golden with diminishing white creamy 1 finger head, hints of lacing. Aromas are stale bread, citrus fruits, dirty socks, funky yeasts. Taste are grainy wheat, slight pils or pale malts. Lemony hops and then funky sour barnyard, not in good way. Palate was soft creamy co2 with light body, citrusy, medincial stale bread lasting unbalanced finish. Not my cup of tea...

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

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 isnít my favorite style. Thumbs up.

Pour to snifter. Light, golden color. Nothing complex--thin on fruit or spiciness. Just OK.

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.
