look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from 12oz brown bottle to pint glass. I love the name of the brew.

A - The beer pours a golden yellow color with a two finger white bubbly head with decent retention and lacing .

S - The nose is a strong grain and bread character with a mild grassy earthy hop character.

T/M - The beer starts and ends with the malt character. Mild wheat notes but mostly light grainy bready glavor with a slight bitter hop character. Light bodied and crisp with good carbonation.

D - Pretty good drinkability

Overall, this is a decent beer from Big Sky. Not the greatest but not too bad. Better than average.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass.
Pours slightly hazy with 3 fingers of nice foamy white head and good lacing and pours slightly hazy.

Smells of wheat and sourdough bread

Tastes is also bready with a slight backnote of citrus

Mouthfeel is a good balance between fizzy and hearty

Overall i would say one of the better wheat beers that i have sampled, i would definately buy this one again.

Upon opening some smoke comes out. Upon pouring, a white fluffly three finger head comes up. It retains really really well and laces. The body is very transparent and you can see bubbles rise to the top. The color of the body is a orangish golden color. Looks great.

Upon smelling, you can definitely smell wheat and citrus. Its kind of a fainter smell and its not too strong.

The taste is of wheat and citrus. These together are a very nice combination. It has a peppery bite to it too. The beginning drinks make you want to drink more if it. Very very tasty wheat beer.

The mouthfeel and drinkability is great. It has a very very nice feel to it that makes you want to drink more of it. Its a lighter wheat beer and not too carbonated.

Overall, this beer is a bit of an alternative to other thicker wheat beers like Boulevard. It light and yet its very flavorful. If you are thirsty it will quench your thirst also. Give this one a try if you like anything wheat.

Appearance - Pours a hazy, bright yellow color with a half inch thick, white head that fades after a minute. Lacing is pretty nice.

Smell - Citrus, wheat, orange zest, and slightly bitter.

Taste - Orange zest and citrus. A little grassy with wheat, pepper, and pretty bitter upfront. Very crisp.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied and the carbonation is very nice. It gives it that crisp feel.

Overall - This is definitely one of the better pale wheat ales.

Nice pour into a pint glass. Thick foamy head that last through out. Golden with a hint of amber in color. Aromas of fruit, grain, and mild yeast. Mellow taste of carmel malt, dried fruit, and a slight metallic finish. Easy drinking wheat ale. Only bought one wish I had one more.
