Picked this up as a mix and match sixer, pretty excited since the first Big Sky product I had completely shattered my expectations. Side poured from the bottle into a Sam Adams glass with standard vigor.

Appearance - Pours a very transparent straw yellow with a decent one finger soapy head. Leaves a little bit of lacing, head dissipates pretty fast.

Smell - A little bit of wheat, a little bit of spices and hop aroma, Fairly faint smell overall, nothing too overwhelming.\

Taste - Some wheat and spices are at the front of the drink. There are some bready notes and a bit of malts. Like the smell, there is not anything too overpowering here.

Mouthfeel - Finishes clean and a little bitter from the hops. Refreshing.

Overall - Not a bad brew. Not great, but not bad. Plenty of other brews of this style are much better for the same money. Its worth a try, but I wouldn't get too wound up about it.
