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.

This wheat beer pours a slightly pinkish yellow gold color. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is wheaty, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied wheat. The malts are cereal and grain, with a distinct fruitiness. The agave flavor is in the background, it definitely is there, but is more in the background. The hops are slightly spicy. Nice carbonation. Interesting beer, very drinkable summer ale. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

pepperford (115) - robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - MAY 29, 2008
slightly golden hazy yellow. Lacing on the glass. Slightly sweet (agave), light fruit flavors of lemon and a touch of thickness on the end. A not too bad summer brew. And a sweet label.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Cloudy golden color with a moderate off-white head. Dry wheat and damp cellar scents. Not much for the nose. After a while I think I am detecting some nectar, but I might just be trying to hard. Light sweet start with mild malt, grain and light honey. SLightly floral in the middle. I do catch a bit of agave in the finish and linger, but not enough to make this anything special.

OD40oz (774) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - MAY 26, 2008
Not too bad of a beer. Cloudy with no head. Lemony wheat taste with a clean finish.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Slightly cloudy, straw colored pour with a 1 finger white head. Grassy aroma with a hint of sweetness, lemon and spice. Mildly sweet malt flavor with notes of citrus, yeast, esters, and a light semi-sweet fruit character (the agave nectar i guess). Has a touch of spicy hop bitterness on the finish. Medium-thin body.

hopdog (9461) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2008
12oz bottle. Poured a deeper and cloudy golden color with a large sized off white head. Aromas of wheat, agave (I’m assuming), honey comb, a little ’sweaty’, and light citrus. Tastes of wheat, honey, and lemons. Wheat was more pronounced in the aromas. Thinner body.

Beaver (1396) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy yellow orange with a medium white head that retains pretty well and laces the glass.

The aroma is lemoney fruit (agave?) and wheat.

The flavor is pretty bland - a little acidic fruit and some metallic malts. It improves some as it warms. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and watery.

Overall, this is not so good. FCB’s Major Tom’s is a much better beer in this style.

Poured cloudy orange with medium off white head. Aroma is fruity with a hint of peppery spice. Finish is a tad bitter. Nice summer drinking beer.

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - MAY 23, 2008
It wasn’t entirely undrinkable but it wasn’t very good either. Pours hazy yellow. Aroma of wheat and yeast. Taste is of wheat and some indescribable off taste ( I assume the agave). No need for me to every drink this again.
