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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Hops for dinner and also in Whitefish. I guess huckleberries are pretty volatile because I got very faint fruit notes here. Either that or the wheat just completely dominated the berries. Nice but wanted more fruit.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured up on tap at MacKenzie River Pizza with clear pale gold body that is nearly watery clear and supporting a thin white head. The aroma has some berry fruitiness mixing with maybe a faint grainy maltiness or a Pilsener like malt note. The taste is the same but it has a bit of a sugary saccharin sensation behind the bubbly sweet sugary berry notes. Off in the background from time to time a faint maltiness can be detected. It is a bit tough to finish a pint of this.
