2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not sure what agave tasteslike, the only thing I can associate with agave is the tequila. On the palate it is almost bitter, but is not. Weirdly interesting. Fading maltiness evolves.Provides a gunky wheat beer appearance from the stuff on the bottom of the bottle. Has a nice hazy puss colored hypnotizing view. Decent wheat. Not quite as ale-ish as I expected.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden yellow (almost yolk colored) with a decent white head that fades. Aroma is of wheat and lemon. Taste is of wheat, lemon and agave. Fairly smooth, clean and easy to drink. Not a bad brew and is refreshing. I have to agree with the commercial description in that it is familiar, yet creative.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Really hazy light orange in color. Head is bright white and totally diminishing. Aroma of light lemon, biscuity malts and a bit of orange zest. Mildly sour flavor with a soft malt sweetness. Finish is heavy in the sour, wet grains department. Interesting with the agave nectar, but the end result is simply an average wheat.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours like a standard unfiltered wheat ale. Slightly cloudy and golden with a foamy white head. Sweet malty wheat aroma. Sweet flavor too, with a touch of citrus and honey. Refreshing and good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours a cloudy brown shade of yellow topped by a soft white head. yeasty aroma with lots of dry citrus, some wheat, earth and something vegetal. a light metallic like malty flavor is followed by some vegetal sweetness, wheat and a light citrus finish. it feels as if the flavor is a bit watered down. medium body with a watery texture and lively carbonation.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle bought at Greens: Hazy golden hue with an okay fizzy head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of juicy fruit bubblegum, wheat, clove, and yeasty esters. The taste is lemony and apricot fruit over wheat and pale malt. Quite acidic and overpowers the yeast. The mouth feel is lively and refreshing. Not too shabby, drinkable.

2.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with 1 inch head. Smells like ass - pretty bad. Watery, mild astringent and semi-sour. As time rolls on it’s not that bad though nothing special. The aroma just did me in from the get-go on this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy yellow with 2 fingers of foamy head. Aroma of banana, wheat, fruit, citrus and maybe a hint of agave....maybe.
Very silky smooth moutheel with flavors of wheat, a slight tinge of banana, faint hints of sweetness, and agave nectar......maybe.
All in all this is a nice light sipper or lawn mowing yardwork brew, and despite it’s low level of flavor it could hit the spot on a hot summer day.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A vigorous pour produces a fat-three-finger thick pale tan colored head. As I pour this brew I get quite a fruity aromatic note that is a mix of bananas and pears. The beer is a murky, hazy, pale amber color, but shows a fully hazed, orangish straw color if held up to the light. Aromas of sweet grain, crushed wheat, white bread, lightly tart lemons and a finish of crushed soda crackers are the most noticed part of the nose when I specifically inspect it. Interestingly the up front fruitiness is only really noticed if you are almost not trying to smell the nose; it is there but can be fleeting and shy if you are looking for it.
More thick bodied than I expected, but it is still only has a light-medium heft to it. The beer definitely tastes more than just a simple Wheat Ale; a soft green, though slightly tropical fruitiness, perhaps a faint vegetal note towards the finish as well as a agave sweetness that I was not expecting to be as noticeable as it is. The agave character is not anywhere near overwhelming though and melds in quite well with the soft wheat beer flavors. Other flavors of tart wheat, soda crackers, dusty malt, sweet grain, perhaps a touch of herbal hop bitterness.
Not a bad beer, for some reason I was expecting it to be a bit blander than it is. It has some nice, though soft, agave flavors that pair well with the standard notes from a clean American Wheat beer.
