look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours with very little head, decent lacing. Perhaps a little thin for a wheat beer.

Smell is typical wheat beer- little sweet, bit if citrus, getting a little bit of sour earthy tones.

Taste is a little light for a wheat beer. Getting some citrus notes, The balance seems a little off. Wheat and malt lingers on the back end.

Mouthfeel is average, maybe a little bit too much carbonation.

Pretty drinkable beer, except it leaves a slightly unbalanced after taste.

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.

12oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

LOOK: Milky hazed yellow, excellent head retention and showing of lace

SMELL: Bready, nutty, chalky yeast, cactus, vague spice, pears

TASTE: Crisp snap, lighter bodied, smooth, bready, doughy biscuits, obscure fruitiness, nutty, slightly bitter, dry, husky

Agave might be to vague to pick out but it does add an underlying layer that you know is foreign to beer. Not as drinkable as I expected but worth a try.

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

Pours clouded apricot, off white head, stays, thick collar, low sheeting and ample scattered lacing left on the glass.

Fruity but faint sniff.

Soft, smooth and moderatly fruity, wheat under belly. not sure what agave tastes like, so not sure if its in there. Pleasant enough wheat, in a fruity and refreshing sort of way. Nothing special, but just about worth a try.

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

Appearance: bright yellow in color, minimal head, cloudy, moderate carbonation

Smell: citrus and wheat

Taste: citrus, wheat, and other fruits--possibly the agave

Mouthfeel: medium bodied, medium carbonation, sweet

Drinkability I could have several of these, but not a six. The agave adds a sweet/tart/different taste that is good. I think this is one of Breckinridge's best and is certainly better than the couple other agave beers I have had.

The beer pours a slightly hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma is grain with a little bit of sweetness, possibly from the agave. The flavor is pretty nice. I get some nice sweet notes from the agave and also get some fruity notes that closely resemble grapes. There is also some nice wheat and grain notes in the flavor. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Easy to drink.
