COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This true American-style unfiltered wheat has something a little special Ė 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 beerís uplifting taste profile. It is familiar, yet creative.

Well, it looks like my fellow Missourian, thegreenroster, felt differently about this beer than me. This was a pleasant surprise from this brewery. Pours hazy orange with a light off-white head. The aroma is fairly fruity and dry with some spice and a cactus aspect. The body is fairly crisp and medium bodied with clean spritzy carbonation. The taste starts with dry wheat, something Iím not used to (probably agave) and pepper. The finish brings out the cactus aspect from the aroma and hints of star fruit. This is significantly better than anticipated & a fine summer beer.

Pour is a cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma is hard to detect. Sweet malts is all i can come up with and that is a guess. Flavor is not much better but there is some bitter citrus and not much else. I donít know what agave tastes like other than tequila but i donít taste any in here. Pretty bland and boring even for this brewer.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2010 Cloudy orange with light, white, head / Nose of agave, wheat, orange, and lemon / Medium to full body, fruity and malty, with some tartness and a touch of spice on the finish / Big flavors of wheat, cactus, orange, and lemon / A little more hopping would be desirable.

This beer is very clear. If this is wheat ale I am confused. There needs to be a bit more of a opaque to translucent appearance. The head fades away too fast. There is a bit of a sweet smell in the aroma, but I am unable to pinpoint what it actually is. I think the aroma is very weak and dull. Not creamy enough to be a wheat ale. There is a continuing sweet flavor throughout the beer. I think it is the agave juice or flavor that they have added to the beer. I think this is a valid approach towards a wheat ale, but they should have stuck more towards the traditional approach with their own nuances. The agave juice is not a bad idea, but I think the brewer needs to be a bit more cognizant towards what he is trying to approach. A fellow drinker said he thinks this beer is rather sour, and I could not agree more. Overall, a bad version of a wheat, but they tried. They tried to make this a wheat beer, but I think it is closer to a sweet lager.

Pours a slightly hazy bright golden with a spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly pale semi-sweet malts. Body starts with an average viscosity and mild pale malty sweetness with a touch of grain and light agave character. Finishes drier and more bitter, but overall, pretty bland.

Pours a hazy straw yellow color with a white head. Aroma is malty, some wheat, sugary, and some peppery hops. Flavor is wheaty, sugary, and peppery hop finish.

Draft. LAbeled as Agave Nectar Heffe at local bar. Poured a cloudy orange body with thin head. Aroma was very faint and I could barely get anything out of it, I guess thatís better than it smelling bad. Taste was bitter citrus - orange, lemon; noticable wheat character with light fruit. Slight;y dry but very smooth with a nice mouthfeel.

12oz, bottle, not terribly bad, not terribly great, nothing standoutish... taste is of a wheat beer with some sweetness type note coming through.... aftertaste is something tequila like... but not in a good way.

Bottle. Strong wheaten odor highlighted by lime notes with a touch of lemon zest and grain. Opaquely hazy golden pour with a frothy, brilliantly white head. Crisp taste is strongly citric and somewhat tart, resolves into a bready but too-short finish. Dryness and acidity are clashing strangely here. Hard to figure out what the agave contributes; itís probably what Iím signifying as lime, though a bit dirtier and with a slightly medicinal edge (though I donít doubt its authenticity). Light-medium body. Average for style and nothing to rave about in the whole - still, a welcome experiment a good summer quencher.
