I’ve had a relatively rough day. It’s been much more stressful than a lazy Sunday ever should be. I wasn’t even sure I was going to do a review today, but since I flaked out last week and relied solely on the Carbo-Nation I figured I should post one. Looking into my refrigerator I picked up the calmest named beverage I had on hand, Grand Teton Brewing Company – Mountain Berry. The label is a serene purple and blue which pairs nicely with the dark pink soda. Being as thirsty as I am I’m skimping on this first paragraph and drinking now.
My soda smells like a blueberry muffin. This makes some sense because the listed berries on the front are huckleberry, blueberry, and blackberry. Apparently the blueberry wins the aroma battle in that particular cage match; let’s find out if he wins the flavor battle royale.
I chugged a fairly large portion of the bottle wanting to quench my thirst. Immediately I was greeted by the blueberry flavoring quickly followed by blackberry and what I assume is huckleberry. I’ve never had a huckleberry before. I’ve read Huckleberry Finn. I’ve watched Huckleberry Hound. Heck, I’m your Huckleberry, but I’ve never eaten one. It’s probably about time I get around to that. The carbonation is sharp, but dissipates quickly allowing for the robust flavor of the berries to emanate in your mouth. Grant Teton Mountain Berry is a bit on the sweet side (but most berry sodas are actually sweeter), and your mouth is left with a syrupy feel, but overall I’m pleased with it. It’s a different kind of berry soda that I would be happy consuming at most any occasion. My apologies for the short review, but I do believe it’s time for a nap.
Verdict – Buy a Pack
