COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pub Brew. Agave Peach Wheat is brewed with an English ale yeast and looks quite traditional with its faint orange color and acceptable amounts of haze. Brewed with blue agave nectar and real peaches, the initial flavor is sweet before the unique qualities of the blue agave become apparent. Similar to tequila that is typically made from this plant, the beer leaves an impressionable impact of pronounced earthy flavors. The finish is light and fresh.

Taster on tap at GTMW. Almost entirely hazy golden orange color. Thin ring of mostly white head. A few loose dots of lace. Moderate sweet taste, lightly tangy. Peach, wheat, some agave citrus... but mostly caramel malt. Ok fruity tangy ale. Kind of rindy.

growler pour. deep golden. tart with light peach and a hint of tequila. perhaps more interesting than good, but definitely drinkable.

On draft at Churchkey in D.C. The beer is light orange hued, with a thin, but lasting head that leaves a fair amount of lacing on the snifter. The aroma brings peach and agave - surprise! I really enjoyed the flavor of this beer. Nice and light with crisp carbonation. Interesting and intriguing flavor, yet drinkable (not a guarantee from Short’s). The wheat comes through nicely, making this an appropriate choice for the hot season (I really enjoy wheat beers in warm weather). The body is a bit on the thin side. Overall, a decent brew. I would have it again. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 06-06-2011

Sweet peach and agave nose. Taste is slightly sweet, some peach and grainy malt, slightly oxidized. Not worth trying.

Draft at brewery. Pours a golden color. The aroma is a strong wheat and malt mix. The taste is pleasant. Nothing crazy but a good drinking wheat beer. Not tons of peach flavor though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can’t say this is one of my favorite pours at Short’s...very astringent with little peach/agave/wheat flavor. Probably need to re-taste this on its own, but still the 1st impression was not a good one...

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Draft at Short’s. Hazy medium orange-brown body, thin off-white head. Light grassy nose with slight tartness. Grassy, nutty body, sweet and tart with fruit juice and a crackery finish. Agave is subtle. Light and refreshing.

draft at the pyramid scheme, grand rapids mi. hazy orange with small white head. aroma of light peach, agave nectar, cereal...big and fruity. flavor is mostly heavy in agave with just a touch of peach in the finish. some grassy, bitter hops accompany the otherwise fruit/wheat aspects...

4oz pour at Churchkey. Pours a hazy, bright orange with zero head. Nose is fruit salad, peaches, flowers, honey. Flavor is really gross, buttery, garbage, over ripened fruit, wet fruit peels, leaves, light citrus. Medium bodied, trashy finish.
