COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This true American-style unfiltered wheat has something a little special – the nectar of the great Salmiana Agave. Agave complements the refreshingly light quality of our wheat and adds a subtle note of flavor that expands this beer’s uplifting taste profile. It is familiar, yet creative.

radio_nowhere (1212) - Maryland, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Draft at Old Town Pour House in Gaithersburg, MD served in a half-pint glass. Hazy golden-amber color with white head. Aroma notes of heavy pale malt sweetness, bread and light fruitiness. Taste is also pretty sweet adding citrus notes. Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp, sticky with light sweet citrus finish. Okay enough wheat ale, refreshing but a little sweet.

_Myers_ (13) - KC, Kansas, USA - JUN 2, 2015
Aroma had agave on the nose first followed by wheat Appearance was cloudy amber, kinda darker than a a typical wheat, maybe due to the agave Taste was sweet wort with somewhat of a wheat Palate: mouthfeel was thin and decently carbonated but an awfully sweet finish, needs a more attenuating yeast or something Overall: very meh. Not bad but certainly one of the lesser wheats I have ever had.

demannu (206) - New Jersey, USA - APR 30, 2015
Mild aroma of citrus and bread. Hazy golden brown color with white head. Decent lacing. Flavor is definitely sweet more than anything else. Slight citrus and yeast flavors as well. Not what i had hoped for.

scoth (608) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 21, 2015
Pours hazy orange-amber with a thin beige head, low retention. Aromas of orange, bread, caramel. Light body, somewhat watery, velvety carbonation. Medium sweet, a little tartness, mild lingering bitter finish in which an agave note is nearly detectable with some imagination. Somewhat refreshing but a little sweet.

superspak (3496) - Michigan, USA - MAR 5, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 2/4/2015. Pours hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, light banana, clove, wheat, biscuit, honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of bready malt, agave, and fruity/earthy yeast notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, light banana, clove, wheat, biscuit, honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Minimal earthy bitterness and light wheat tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, light banana, clove, wheat, biscuit, honey, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. very nice robustness and balance of bready malt, agave, and fruity/earty yeast flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is a damn nice pale wheat ale style. All around great robustness and balance of bready malt, agave, and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; and extremely smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
