look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

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.

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

Appearance: It has nice brass colored body, the head is white and full and I would dare say creamy looking with some bigger bubbles towards the middle. Great lacing! There is a lot of carbonation but very even.

Smell: A very fruity aroma. A very pleasing hops smell.

Taste: I felt this beer was very balanced it has a ton of hoppiness but the malt really shines through. The after taste is a bit vegetable like.

Mouthfeel: Even though there is a lot of carbonation it doesn’t have an overly fizzy feel to it. It very creamy.

Overall: I would drink this one again. I think on tap it would be better.

Another can extra thanks to Ryan. Pours clear gold with a tiny head, unspectacular. Nose is sweet, softly wheat, banana, some soft fruit action. Mouth is more hop forward with a finishes that lingers between hoppy and sweet. Soft flavors but super sharp carbonation. Mediocre.

Poured from a twelve oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours hazy golden colored with one quarter inch of white foam. Some lacing. Pale malt smell. Light malty taste with touches of fruit. Smooth throughout. Subtle hop at the close. Easy drinking, quite clean, yet lots of flavor. Real good pale wheat ale.

Another enjoyable ale from Montana.
