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.

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.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - MAR 22, 2008
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.

BBB63 (5743) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 22, 2008
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.

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.

Rusty (1533) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 12, 2008
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.

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.

On-tap, served in a shaker glass. L: Unfiltered cloudy appearance, straw yellow in color with orange hues, fluffy white head that slowly settled into a thin sudsy skim, splotchy rings of lace follows the body down the glass, an attractive start for this wheat ale. S: Husky grains, toasted wheat and a light honey maple from the Salmiana Agave nectar, everything is framed by a citric lemony aroma. F&T: Malty moderate body, softly crisp, creamy feel in the mouth. Good wheat twang in the taste, provides a nice snap of toasted wheat to go with the lemony flavors. The agave nectar has more of a neutral sweetness than in the aroma, just a subtle sweet light colored honey taste. A delicate hop spiciness comes out in the end, adding to sprightly dry lemon honey, toasted grainy, bread yeasty finish. I thought this was a pretty enjoyable pale wheat ale, quite quaffable, I will have to pick up the bottle version sometime soon.

Hangover (1029) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - MAR 5, 2008
Murky orange pour with lots of sediment and a big white head. Aroma is of wheat and yeast. High carbonation. Slightly sweet up front with some grassy hops. Some malt on the back end. Finishes dry, slightly spicy. Not bad if you ask me.
