yogurt. Flavor is huckleberry, medium tartness, some lemongrass grass and bicarb. Light
bodied with medium carb and a slightly wet finish. Pretty decent. Available at UTOG. 5.0%

pucker on the finish. 7.0% - Available at Toasted Barrel.
Strap Tank - Kismet: Missed this raspberry and plum smoothie. Sounds tasty though. 4.4% Available at Strap Tank (Springville). Not vegan friendly.

Avenues Proper - Transform and Roll Out: This hazy pale ale has low bitterness with with a bigger than normal yeast profile. It's not estery at all but it's noticeable.

Mountain West Cider - Colada Be Kidding Me: This new cider mimics the classic pina colada – and it does so brilliantly. The pineapple and coconut never get out of hand and manage to keep the apple base in check. It tough to identify when the pineapple starts and the apple ends. The coconut is subtle and pleasant. Very tasty. This doesn't go on sale Monday Aug 24th. Only at Mountain West's Cidery.
