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 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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
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

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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...

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours cloudy light golden with a mostly receding wispy white head. Aroma of agave, citrus, coriander. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with lively carbonation. Not impressed.
