look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Murky, dark brown - definitely unfiltered...1/2" head falls quickly and leaves a cap with light lacing. Very low aroma...some citrus/orange. BReady malt flavor, wheat, subtle banana, ripe fruit some late spiciness..coriander(?). FULL bodied with low carbonation. OK drinkability.

On tap at the original Uncle Billy's location.

The beer pours a slightly hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is manly wheat, with a little bit of sweetness from the agave. Fairly straightforward and a little boring.

The flavor is a little better than the aroma. I get some wheat and grass notes, as well as a little bit of sweetness from the agave, as well as some lemon notes.

Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Milky yellow with little to no head

S - Heavy heavy on the orange peel with the spiciness of the coriander and phenolics from the yeast coming through to provide balance.

T - Like refreshment slapped you in the face then gave you a kiss on the lips. Tangy citrus with the spiciness from before.

M - A little more full bodied than a typical wit, but still above average.

D - When can you install the IV from the tank to my arm?

Opaquely cloudy yellow color with a fine-bubbled white head. Excellent lacing and some decent retention. Man, this beast is sediment-filled!

Smell is mostly lemony coriander with hints of clove and honey. Sweet saltwater taffy comes to mind as well. Not much agave in the nose, but overall, a very nice smelling beer.

Agave flavor comes out in the tasting with a slight tangy citrus flavor. Coriander and orange peel are there of course, as well as a wheaty tang that accentuates the mild hop bitterness. I must say, a very flavorful and nice wit!

This was a great brew to accompany their smoked chicken salad...

pours up a murky orange with a nice white head. the nose is orange citrus, subtle lemon. the taste is orange citrus, wheat, crisp hop balance, subtle lemon. a very orangy brew. i dont know what the agave nectar tastes like singled out so im not sure if i detected any or not. medium body, low to medium carbo, sweet finish. Great brew!

A: Pours a cloudy yellow color. A small white head forms and recedes to nothing in a second. Light lace is left behind.
S: Soapy hops up front. Light banana esters, bread and biscuit. Pretty neutral.
T: Follows the nose. Soapy hops are a little to prevalent. Light fruity esters, bread and biscuit.
M/D: A light body that is just to thin for my tastes. Not hard to drink, but I don't really care to have another.

Pretty much average in every way. Not really bad, just ho hum. A safe beer for the masses.

Obviously unfiltered, a murky orange juce appearance. Not really that appetizing, but interesting. Weak aroma, maybe some fruit. Citrus and fruity flavors (agave). A bit of a spice to it. Tasty. Zesty, fairly full bodied, but still would be a good drinker on a hot day. One was good. Two would be ok. Three might be pushing it. The flavor is spot on, just a little heavy for a wit.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - opaque orange, looks creamy and inviting

S - yeasty, fruity esters, citrus, bubble gum

T - a little tart, very fruity with some citrus and candy like flavors, but nothing I'd call too sweet

M/D - dry, very drinkable. It's hard for me to tell what the agave is doing to this beer, but it's a very drinkable flavorful beer I'd have again.

a grit wit with all the spicing carrying it through drinkablity. looks the part in color with a weak head and a nose of husk and sweet orange. has an excessive sweetness. finish of cereal and a crispness that is not grass and floral but husky sweet astringent. not brisk at all. not the beer to have here seeing as there is so many fantastic brews. have a sample if you like but try some other hammers.

Tried on tap 13 Jun 2009.

comes with slice of orange. tried first without it. very cloudy looks like a tangy yellow orange brew. floral coriander lemon and orange zest aroma. flavor is a bit like an orange soda sans sugar. added a sqeeze of orange which gives it a touch of sweetness. med body lightly carbonated. wheat is really present in finish. better than other agave wheat beers we've tried.
