Pours a straw yellow color with a decent sized white head that stays around for a time.

Smells like hay, freshly mowed grass, and a hint of citrus.

Citrus starts out strong at first, then gets a bit grassy and finishes with a strong hops note. Leave a bit of lingering bitterness.

Feel is ok, can really feel the carbonation on the tongue.

Not a bad beer, but seems to not be very coherent. It could use a bit more balance and complexity to it, while refreshing, has a bit of an odd flavor note that keeps it from being one of the better examples of the style. I mainly bought this because i like the packaging and the label, but not one I'll be likely to have much more of in the future.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Imperial Pint.

Appearance: Hazy honey with thick, bubbly white head.

Smell: Earthy aroma, with dried out banana, clove, citrus and white pepper.

Taste: Very similar to the aroma, with the same mix of flavors. Pretty tasty, but the finish is sharp in an odd way.

Feel: Light body, moderately high carbonation, dry finish.

Overall: Much better than the average in my opinion. It seems that the lower abv Saisons usually get lower scores.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Been a while since a new Big Sky beer has crossed my lips, so I'm looking forward to this guy. It pours a clear brass topped by over a finger of dirty white foam. The nose comprises dry wheat, light Belgian yeast, light orange peel, and a bit of corn on the back end. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a heaping helping of funky lemon rind and a bit of old clove. The result is a highly objectionable flavor combination that my tongue wishes it could escape. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, this beer just plain missed the mark on several occasions. Bummer through and through.

Mostly clear medium-gold body, nice frothy head leaving noteworthy lacing.

Lovely aroma. The yeast yields banana, pear, and pepper layered upon doughy bread.

Taste falls short. A little biscuity sweetness, followed by something kind of dirty and bitter. The little sour and funk tastes muted and almost bitter themselves. Brushtail is lacking the finer flavors of a traditional saison.

Not as dry and crisp as one would expect from a light bodied farmhouse ale.

What seemed promising at first in appearance and smell ended up falling short in taste and mouthfeel. As more brewers are churning out more saisons, I don't feel the motivation to seek this one out again.
