I had high hopes for this. It really has a bland flavor. I think the hops overwhelm the agave. It looks good, and is easy to drink, but so is Keystone. For those homebrewers out there, Austin HomeBrew supply has a Agave Wheat Kit that is waay better.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Wow, this was a swing and a miss! Smells like Budweiser, tastes like Busch Light.
Truly, the aroma is very much that of a big-chain american lager, with the smell of rice filler rather than wheat (see Boulevard for wheat done right).
Pours a hazy straw color with a bright white bubbly head. Thereís a touch of sweetness in the flavor from the agave nectar that almost comes through like clover honey. Very simple texture, smooth finish with soft carbonation.

Bottle from The Foodery, 10th Street in Philadelphia. Wheat beer aroma, and yes, it does smell of agave. Flavor is watery, citrusy, and muddled. Guess itís gimmicky.

This looks very nice in the glass very hazy yellow with a nice big fluffy white head and plenty of nice lace. Aroma is faint with some spicy notes and some banana. Flavor has some peach some odd herbal bitterness, the agave is faint but recognizable, overall itís a little grainy.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured to a dep orange red with thin white head that lingers awhile and leaves okay lacing. Nose is slightly hopped and fruity, mouthfeel is slightly tingly and taste is sour apples. Leads to a finish that is slightly bitter and short. Not too much to this one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Flying Saucer in KC. Pours a cloudy, orange body with an inch thick, dense foam, white head that dissipates at a moderate pace and leaves some decent lacing. Aroma is some sweeter and light wheat malts, bread, sweet oranges and tangerines, and slightly tart lemons. Flavor starts sweet and fruity with a light tartness before more wheat bread comes in. Finishes slightly juicy with a bit of a tart earth and lingering sweet wheats. Palate is medium bodied and smooth. Overall, a pretty tasty wheat with enough bright flavors to satisfy. Straightforward, but solid.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle: Pours a hazy gold with a fluffy white head that instantly disappears. Fruity, almost pineapple-ish nose, is light but enjoyable. The body is sorta spritzy for the style, definitely lacking any creamy wheat. More fruit - mostly peach, hits the palate first. Softer notes of overripe banana and vanilla play a nice secondary role. Not as impressive as I was hoping, since agave sounds great in a wheat in theory.
