UPDATED: JUN 7, 2010 light, airy aroma, actually reminds me of a freshly cleaned room, like ozone. slight haze, golden and a head that never rose, but refused to leave. anything sweet is quickly fleeting, became dry and dirty, perhaps because big skyís not making this anymore. astringent finish. 060710 out of a can. Wheat? I keep thinking of this as a pale. New approach. Light gold, slick white head. Still metallic, hoppy in the finish like no other ífiltered wheatí. Still think of this like a pale, brewed with a dose of wheat, finished hoppy. I dig it on its own, but misses for this pronounced style.

Let me start by saying that I am judging this beer against the style. Iím not a huge wheat beer fan, but TroutSlayer is delicious. It was pretty clear for a wheat, was yellow in color and the head was composed of big bubbles. The aroma is what got me. It had a citrus aroma and some herbal smell that I couldnít quite put my finger on. The taste was similar to the aroma, with more of a citrusy character. It was too easy to drink. After this and Moose Drool, Iím becoming a big fan of big Sky.

Draft: Golden color pour with white medium sized head. Wheat, grainy aroma with a light hoppy, slightly sweet finish. Not too bad.

Definitely a session beer, pretty light body for a wheat ale. Not much nose, pale straw in color. Some bitter hop notes up front with some malt balance. Decent for what it is.

With a name like "trout slayer", it sets expectations too high from the start. Granted, the trout is not much of an animal to slay, however the verb "slay" implies awesomeness or at least action, which is a false descriptor of this beer. It pours golden, no haze. It has a thin white head, and a very light, fresh aroma. It tastes a bit like watery cream of wheat, with a flabby aftertaste. Granted, itís very light and very carbonated, if youíre into that sort of thing. Overall, very disappointing.

Tap in West Yellowstone. Pour was a clear golden with little head. Aroma was fruitty and doughy. Flavor is sweet malt, fruitty, with a little bitterness. Not really what I would call a wheat, but very drinkable.

Ratman197 (9961) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 15, 2008
Bottle poured a clear gold with a small lingering white head. Aromas of bread, light citrus and light styraw. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of straw and light citrus with a crisp dry clean finish.

Bottle... Poured clear honey tone with a fluffy white head. Aroma is faint with corn-malt and slight hops. Flavors are pretty pleasant, with floral characters that give way to sweet tones of malt and herbal hops. Other flavors of spices and maybe coriandor. This reminds me more of maybe a golden ale of some short.

Pours hazy yellow with a moderate white head that is moderately persistent. Aroma is somewhat malty with some bitter hop accents...not much else, but smells decent nevertheless. Flavor is malty up front, and turns bitter near the end...although the finish is bitter, there really isnít any telltale hop flavors to go along with it...just bitterness. However, the beer is very clean in my flavor, and has some decent balance...didnít really come across as a wheat ale to me, but who knows...more of a weak APA IMO. Palate is average...decently thick for a beer of said ABV. Although this is far from a mindblowing experience, I think this is catching a bad rap because its a) not a cool style and b) isnít extremely hoppy...not running back for more, but would happily quaff another of these in the future.

Bonus bottle from a long time ago, sitting in my frig waiting. Popped cap and I smell some melanoidins, which i usually like, but seem a little out of place here. Head fades instantly. Yellow color. Lots of bitterness, but not of the good kind. The flavor is not good. The bitterness lingers on my tongue and makes my face cringes the whole time Iím writing this. Yuck.
