A - somewhat light colored and cloudy.
S - Reminiscent of farms smells, hay and cows.
T - Carbonation is overpowering and initially hides the taste, which is fruity with a hint of bitterness and ends with a dry aftertaste.
M - Excellent mouthfeel, initially feels like it may be over-cabonated, great aftertast.
O - Great beer and would drink again.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a duvel tulip. Hazy straw with a thin white head leaving lacing down the glass. Tiny steams of bubbles.

Smells - pepper, lemon, mango, ripe tropical fruits.

Taste - Starts off lemony and dry, transitions into mango and pear in the middle with sweet malt backing it up. Finishes fairly dry.

Mouthfeel - spritzy and medium-light bodied. High carbonation.

Overall - a tiny bit sweeter than I like from a saison, but a very nice blend of complex tropical fruit flavors. Not quite as drinkable as it could be due to the sweetness, but overall an excellent beer.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours darker yellow, active white foam. 1/2 inch foam settles down to nothing. Wheaty smell. Citrus in the back. Funky taste, some lemon. Firm hop, some sugar sweetness. Very good. Solid version.

Have to get back into Great Divide, it has been a while.

Bottle Appearance: Hazy straw with a quickly disappearing white foamy head. Aroma: Yeast, sulfur Taste: Lively mouthfeel, thin body, starts a bit start, but finish and aftertaste is slightly sweet fruit. Palate: The fruity finish is really unique... starts like a pretty standard saison, but the finish is a real kicker. Overall:
