Another under appreciated from a small Montana brewery here. Not sure it fits the style guidelines it's listed under here, not much German about it and the yeast isn't right for that, but I love it just the same. It has a great nose and taste, fairly sweet and rich, yet clean and dynamic with what appears to be a wheat malt base and a nice clean light clave punctuated by effervescent carbonation and a bright almost Belgian fruitiness. Pears and yeast in the finish either a little residual sugar. Creamy texture and a bubble feel. Better than anything I have had from these guys so far.

Bottle label data: Best Before O (October) 14. Also, ABV is listed as 5.3% on the brewery's web site.

Nice, golden yellow body, lots of slowly rising carbonation bubbles, and a one-finger thick, white head. Aroma presents toasted cereal grains. Flavor mirrors the aroma for the most part with a mild fruitiness; hop bitterness is present but stays pretty much in the background. Medium bodied; some residual sugars present; kind of flat despite carbonation presence; semi-dry finish.

A so-so beer that tastes okay but lacks defining weizen beer character. The honey-like sweetness is at the fore yet there is little, if any, banana or clove-like presence. Uninspiring...

Purchased as part of a variety 12-pack for $13.99 at a convenience store. Interesting label art, as usual, but I wish the brewery would indicate the style of beer. A moderate pour produces about 1/2 inch of bubbly white head, which dissipates really quickly, leaving no lace on the sides. The lightly carbonated brew is a pale honey-amber color.

I detect a fruity aroma, with a kiss of floral hops. A fruity-honey and spicy taste is quite noticeable and reminds me a little of mead. Undertones of melon and maybe a slight bit of banana are apparent. Just a touch of bitterness on the palate. The mouthfeel is rather thin but the beer is pretty refreshing.

A: clear golden color. Forms a small white head that falls to a patchy surface coating. No lacing. 3.5
S: corn, grain, and some light grassy hops. 3.5
T: light sweet corniness, grain, light breadiness, and a hint of toast. Finishes clean and quick with just a touch of citrus hops. 3.0
M: light-medium bodied. Appropriate carbonation. Very mild bitterness. 3.5
O: a fairly unexciting, yet easy drinking, mass-appeal craft beer. 3.0
