3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed golden amber color with a one finger head of white foam. The head fades very rapidly, leaving just a lighter level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer massive of a huckleberry and almost blueberry like smell. Along with these aromas comes some yeasty and wheaty smells as well as a little bit of a grainy and grassy smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a decent sum of a wheaty taste which is matched by some yeast and a little bit of grain. While the huckleberry is lighter upfront, it quickly gets stronger and with it brings more and more sweetness. The huckleberry and sweetness maximize in the middle with the berry then remaining strong throughout the taste while the sweeter more sugary flavor fades ever so slightly. With a little bit of grass and a slight increase in the fruit due to some blueberry flavors coming to the tongue, one is left with a moderately sweet berry-wheat flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is rather high. For the low abv, fruit flavors, and wheat style of the brew the feel is great with it making for a very easy drinking and more refreshing brew.
Overall – A somewhat sweeter and berried flavor brew that is still rather drinkable due to its lighter body and low abv. Not a bad summer style refresher, but nothing I would want all that often. One to at least give a go to for yourself to see if you like it or not.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy very light golden color with a minimal white head. Aroma of berries, wheat and yeast. Decent wheat base with sweet berries on the nose, but the berry flavor disappears quickly leaving mostly a fairly fuzzy wheat beer behind. Not super smooth to drink either. It may sound like I’m bashing this beer, but it’s not entirely unpleasant to drink. Not as refined as some of the blueberry beers they brew on the east coast (particularly in Maine) but its not a bad summer berry beer if that’s what your looking for. If I could change one thing about this beer I’d like it to be a bit smoother in the mouth.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle purchased at Glacier Park Trading Company, poured light lemon with a fizzly, thin white head. No lacing at all, very wet, soft foam. The aroma is a subtle berry under a heavy malt curtain. This could have more of the fruit coming through; I enjoyed the flavor at first, but yeast comes in like a bulldozer and wipes out the berry accents. I really enjoyed them up front and am missing them entirely the further I get into the glass.
Although I don’t believe that this is a bad wheat lager, I don’t believe it’s a very good fruit beer. For a hot summer day with a group of friends hanging at the river, this would be a good choice. For a taster or a nice meal, I would pass.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the Rising Sun general store in Glacier Nat’l Park, but I didn’t get to drinking it until just now in our hotel room in Great Falls. Feel like I gotta drink it before I leave the state. Pours pale gold with offwhite head. Aroma of wheat and huckleberry juice. Taste is very much the same. Wheat beer mixed with huckleberries. Not overly sweet, though, and finish is of lightly toasted wheat and gentle bitterness. Light body, lively carbonation. Thirst-quenching. Overall: Can’t say I’d order this often, but under the hot Montana sun it makes a compelling case.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I was lucky enough to get this on draft in Montana! Poured a pale yellow color with a thin off-white head. Lots of berry in the aroma. Taste is mostly of berries, but it is not overwhelming. It is also not too sweet or syrupy, the balance is good. Some hops help give the finish some crispness. Overall very refreshing.
