Pours a hazy dark amber with an off-white head. Head dissipates quickly, Aroma is sweet plums. Taste is fairly complex with dried fruits, fig, and some caramel. I don’t really like how it sits on the palate and has some off flavors. emacgee (4705) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Pours a cloudy ruddy reddish brown with one finger of tan head. Nose is pretty bad, oxidized and stale with little to no nuance. This just leaves much to be desired in a sort of indescribable way. Flavor is stale and bleh, old tasting. Not putting more thought into describing this one…. BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - MAY 13, 2014
Pours amber with off white head. Had at Foamfest in Fayetteville. Slight malt aroma. Slightly sweet. Medium bodied decent. hotstuff (5258) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 11, 2014
Rated on 5-16-2011. This bottled beer’s appearance is a medium sized frothy, very fizzy head with a moderate retention, transparent orange body, slow rising carbonation, and virtually no lacing. The aroma is malty, toffee, semi-sweet, and fruity. The taste is sweet, some malt, fruity, and some toffee. The mouthfeel is smooth and watery. This beer is light-medium bodied. This beer’s flavor is a let down since this is one of my favorite beer styles to drink/rate. It lacks character, the flavor is on the weak side and it left me not wanting this beer again. ronaldtheriot (1995) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - APR 5, 2014
Crown Valley Big Bison Ale has a thick, fizzy, cream-colored head, a murky, lighter, reddish-brown appearance, but with a brilliance, when the sunlight catches it, a thin lace sheeting, and racing bubble streams. The aroma is of rich, sweet, fruity, bread crust, some booze, brandy, and rock candy. Taste is of all those elements, with specifically fig, caramalized syrup, and a noticeable, but not harsh, bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and somewhat slick, and Crown Valley Big Bison Ale finishes semi-dry, dessert-like, and sip-able. Overall, this is a most excellent beer and another winner from the brewery. RJT
