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.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2008 Rated 7.13.08. Pours a very murky light golden with a small soft white head. Sweet agave and wheat aroma. First taste is sweet agave, followed by some boring wheat and metallic flavors. I like the unique sweetness the agave adds, however, the rest is kinda like macro american keg beer. Medium, kinda chalky body with some light fizzy carbonation. . . . 5 3 5 3 10 . . . . . . . . Rerate 12.27.08. Who would have thought an accidental 6 months would help this beer hehe. Pours a cloudy homogeneous gold with no bubbles and a small dense creamy white froth. Light aroma of sweet agave juice, light honey and faint toasted wheat, pleasant. Soft flavors, the slight oxidation seems to have helped greatly. Tastes like pilsner malt, lightly grassy, sweet and tangy agave sugars, light honey wheat toastiness. Smooth crisp palate. . . . 6 4 6 3 12 . . . . . . .

Pours an odd semi hazy yellowish orange with a quickly fading white head. Smell is slightly sour almost funkiness, and wheat, with a bit of lemon in there as well. Flavor is extremely bland aside from the tartness that feels like a ton of lemon juice was squeezed into a regular lager. The agave gives it an odd mustiness, that I don’t particularly care for. Interesting, but not really good. A bit thin as well.

Drinkable, so in some sense it’s better than the other beers in this scoring range for me. But very little head for a wheat beer, low aroma, watery flavor and no catch of the agave nectar make this a low scorer. I did have some agave nectar at the house so I just poured some in myself. At least I get the "subtle note" that way, eh.

12oz bottle served directly out of the fridge in a shaker glass. Crisp wheat and mildly earthy aroma, maybe a little citrus. Pours goldish yellow with a one fingered white head, active carbonation, and evident bottle conditioning. The taste is crisp wheat and an unfamiliar flavor that is both fruity & earthy, a bit of tartness as well as lemony citrus. There is also a slickness about the beer that is unique but not off putting. An interesting American wheat with a little extra something. Would be nice on the back porch on a hot day.

Pours a golden color (unfiltered). Tastes like a regular wheat, with a slight citrus

I’d say that the agave is mostly in name only. I had a mix six pack that I had randomly and I didn’t even note any other tastes except the wheat, yeast, malt, etc. Overall, it wasn’t that bad. Very clean. Light notes of citrus with some grain flavors.

Pours a darker golden color with a white head. Aroma is of wheat, grain, and a little lemon. Flavor is kind of lacking. Not much carbonation either. What flavor there is is mostly grains and wheat. Not really much else to say about this.

Bottle pours a hazy straw color with a small head. The aroma is wheaty, clove, and bready. The flavor is like a creamy wheat with sour dough bread. Overall, OK.

golden murky pour with no head. slight sour notes alongside of some yeast. decent mouthfeel and a pretty decent taste. the agave really pulls this one together.

In the bottle from Beertopia. This is much ado about nothing. The wheaty flavor couches a bit of lemon citrus and lime flavors, but this could have been so much more had they used more agave. Just not daring enough. I’ll pass.
