A lightly hazed pale goled-orange in color, this brew develops a light, creamy off-white head just under a finger tall that has pretty good but not great retention and leaves some spotty lacing as it drops.
The nose is as light as the style would dictate, but not thin or lacking much. The wheat throws down a solid backbone for a lightly floral and herbal hoppiness balanced by a very gentle and sort of natural sweetness. It's an interesting profile and a good one.
The taste does follow suit to a T. Wheat is solid, hops are light but present, balance is there from the sweetness combined with the wheat. This is a nice brew, not bland or lacking flavor like some APWAs (which I believe it is).
Particularly for style, this beer actually has a pretty body to it, with some depth that while light doesn't feel remotely thin. It's not heavy but it has a full creaminess to it yet still has a crispness and, unlike so many of its like, is actually genuinely refreshing. The finish is very quick, but it's a good feel.

12 ounce bottle, a friend gave this to me recently and I have no idea how fresh/old this is. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a hazy gold color with a half inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both average. The brew smells like wheat, apples and honey/agave nectar. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also some bready malt and apricots noticeable too. It's mostly sweet tasting. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit coating and has a decent amount of carbonation. I think it's an OK brew, but it really doesn't do anything for me. With that being said, it's worth trying if you've never had it before.

Wheat beer with agave nectar. This should be different. From a 12 ounce bottle, on to the beer:

In a weizen glass, it looks like the usual wheat ale. An unfiltered, cloudy, sand colored body, topped with a somewhat creamy head on top with an inch of thickness on the pour. The aroma is on the light side, though what you can smell reveals a few goodies. It is slightly sweet and fruity with a note of shredded wheat.

At the very least, it sways away from the becomingly common orange wheat and apricot wheat. The first thing tasted is that somewhat sweet, somewhat tangy agave. Just a little wheat malt makes its mark, so without the adjunct this would be a plain, boring wheat ale. It's light bodied and gently carbonation with a somewhat slick feel.

Decent fruit beer out of Breckenridge. Could be an interesting switch-up for orange juice during breakfast.
