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.

IrishBoy (3821) - Bakersfield, California, USA - SEP 28, 2008
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.

(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 I’d 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 don’t know if I’m 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. I’d drink this any day.

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.

kyzr (1148) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - SEP 15, 2008
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.

ajm (1065) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 3, 2008
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.

dutch23mp (270) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2008
a truly different taste not too bad the wheat flavor is predominate with the after taste of the agave stimulating the palate. Not something I would make a habit out of but interesting. 12 oz bottle

Grizzle (80) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - AUG 26, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2008 Bottle -> Imperial pint glass. Crisp bordering on sour hoppy aroma. Poured a cloudy, dark golden color, with a short head which retreated quickly. no lacing whatsoever. Fairly traditional wheat flavor, with citrus and grass notes, while the agave initially presents a barely noticeable passion fruit-like flavor. As the beer goes down, a spice becomes present in the back of my throat, which I attribute to the agave. The palate is thin and ever so slightly oily, with a mild carbonation buzz for the tongue.

bottle - Pours hazy gold with a one finger, quickly fading head. The aroma is mainly wheat malt and some yeast. The flavor is sweet wheat, a touch of citrus, and what I guess is the agave. It’s light bodied and has a mild, dry finish. Not bad... the agave is kind of interesting, but the result is nothing special...
