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.

steelhead3686 (254) - Athens, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Pours a hazy gold with a d medium white head. Has a floral and honey aroma with a nice hops note. Almost tastes like a typical lager but, there is a bit more bitter and a hint of sweet. Very light body and thin. A nice refreshing beer that is good for a hot summer day, but there are better beers for that.

scoth (576) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 21, 2015
Pours hazy orange-amber with a thin beige head, low retention. Aromas of orange, bread, caramel. Light body, somewhat watery, velvety carbonation. Medium sweet, a little tartness, mild lingering bitter finish in which an agave note is nearly detectable with some imagination. Somewhat refreshing but a little sweet.

trapped (1119) - New York City, TURKEY - MAR 19, 2015
Draught @ Albion. Cloudy bright orange with small off-white foamy head, high carbonation, citrus taste, abrupt finish with slight lemon peel bitterness remaining. Did not get the agave flavor at all.

superspak (3140) - Michigan, USA - MAR 5, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 2/4/2015. Pours hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, light banana, clove, wheat, biscuit, honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of bready malt, agave, and fruity/earthy yeast notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, light banana, clove, wheat, biscuit, honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Minimal earthy bitterness and light wheat tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, light banana, clove, wheat, biscuit, honey, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. very nice robustness and balance of bready malt, agave, and fruity/earty yeast flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is a damn nice pale wheat ale style. All around great robustness and balance of bready malt, agave, and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; and extremely smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

On tap at Peel’s. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a decent small bead white head that laces the glass. Aroma is grain and agave. Taste is sweet wheat malt, grassiness, mild citrus and once again a bit of the agave fruit. A good American wheat.
