3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale amber, semi-cloudy body with a thin white head. Very light aroma, but I can sense some yeast and sour fruit. Somewhat thin palate with good carbonation. Decent flavor. Malt, yeast, and sweet fruit up front (agave, I presume). Sour fruit at the end. Clean finish. A fair wheat beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a pale amber color with a dissapating head. Minimal lacing. Aroma of cereal and yeast and a subtle sharp tang of orange. Tastes like a typical wheat with fruit notes that fall between cantalope and apricot-I assume thatís the agave. Hints of honey. Finishes dry and sour and seems a little light bodied. Itís Ok but not something Iíll make a habit of.

I tried this for something different. It was not much more than a normal wheat beer. The brew had a little sweeter taste than most wheats, but it wasn’t too special.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle) Pours a cloudy yellow color with a decent white head. Aroma is of wheat malt and biscuit. Not detecting much agave in the nose. Taste is a little more potent. Sour notes and light citrus hit your tongue first. Some grass and grain in the finish. In some ways it reminded me of a Berliner Weisse because of the sour wheat character of the beer. I just wish there were more robust wheat notes in here. Still a unique and somewhat refreshing brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle from Supermaket Liquors, Cheyenne, WY; Nose of guava fruits, flowery hops, and wheaty grain; cloudy yellow-gold with a big, glass-lacing, off-white head; flavor is wheaty, with light agave in the background along with very mild hop bitterness; finish is lightly bitter. Good different wheat.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(12oz bottle from Whole Foods on September 28, 2008) First thing, before I get into the rating: INCREDIBLE 2-3 finger head. Bright white, huge, stiff and frothy, leaving splotchy patches of lacing. Nice, steady carbonation. Sweet smelling for a wheat ale, but not like the usual malty, sugary bit. Its flavor is almost nothing what Iíd expect from a wheat, but the agave-wheat pairing (in my opinion) is a good combo. They compliment each other nicely, and it seems Breckenridge did their homework. We use agave at home instead of sugar, so I donít know if Iím biased to the flavor, but this is very well done. The center-back of my tongue was a little active at first. The rest, very enjoyable. Clean and thin, but thick enough on the palate to give it points. Iíd drink this any day.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy orange color with a small white head. The aroma is full of sweet malts, some honey, citrus and wheat. The flavor is pretty basic, but nice; lots of wheat and some honey, the agave is interesting, I guess it gives it a bit of coolness. The palate is pretty light and very fizzy. Thanks Richard.

Bottle. Didn’t care for this at all. Poured a cloudy gold with a small head. Aroma of wheat. Flavor is putrid. Thin bitter finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dirty gold pour with white head. Wheaty sweety nose. Flavor is fruit juice sweet with some grain. Light body that keeps it to the sweet finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A solid wheat! Bottle from Cortez, CO. A nice level of cloudiness gives way to a full - not sharp and very smooth - wheat flavor with only mild lemon zest around the edges. Yeast is also surprisingly low-profile.
