Appearance: 2" fluffy white head recedes slowly with moderate lacing. Significant carbonation present. Deep golden color and somewhat cloudy, but less than is common with saisons.
Aroma: clove, banana, warm bread dough, earthy hops.
Mouthfeel: mostly light, fairly crisp, somewhat dry finish.
Flavor: Hops are more forward than expected and mask the sweeter malt flavors (clove, banana, caramel) somewhat.
Overall: very fine, but not great. blackflag321 (689) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Pour to snifter. Light, golden color. Nothing complex--thin on fruit or spiciness. Just OK. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAY 20, 2017
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a burnt light copper color with a finger’s worth of off white foamy head
that clung and glistened a little bit before gently dieing off to leave some sly
The aroma had some sweet grains, light floral bits, dried bubblegum, dried herbal qualities and some hay.
The flavor had a dried sweetness about it through the prior mentioned aromas. Subtle dried flroal/herbal/hay aftertaste
The palate was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine.
ABV felt as projected.
Overall, with so many saisons on the market these days, I don’t see a need to come back to this other than being grateful
to my West coast friend for sending this to me. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - APR 9, 2013
12-oz. Pours a murky medium amber. Huge fluffy white head. Cigarette ashes and egg yolks on the nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Ashy, sulfuric mid palate. Surprisingly mild finish. Disappointing. ajnepple (6623) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2013
12 oz bottle. Dark golden, pale and cloudy with a fluffy white head that laces the glass. The aroma is yeasty and lightly tart with fruity esters, spices and herbs. Light to medium body with a crisp dry feel. Chalky yeast flavor, herbal hops, light spices and fruit. Kind of bland and watery. Lingering unpleasant finish. Meh.

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. That1Guy (2236) - Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2013
12 oz bottle pours a hazy golden with a nice, white, frothy head. Earthy aroma, some grass and hay, with a bit of banana runts in the background. Flavor is more subtle banana esters, plus more of the earthy, grassy notes. A little too watery in the mouthfeel for me. Finishes dry and clean.

Bottle thanks to mora2000. Pours with a hazed golden hued body with a retentive white head. Aromas are of peppery phenols, sage, black pepper, and plastic. Light apple esters, low malt. Flavors are dry, black pepper and a touch of vegital flavors. Lively carbonation with a dry finish. thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 22, 2013
(12oz bottle thnks to mora2000) clear light gold, fine white bubbles. Nose is wheat, raw grain mash, bit of creamsickle, stale fruit, cherry. Taste is a little better, spicy wheat, fruity, odd grain mash, slightly sweet and medium carbonation. Wittales (762) - 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...
