3.43/5  rDev +1.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from bottle into a Sam Adams glass.

A - Hazy yellow in color, can tell it's a wheat beer. Some sediment left in the bottle. Bonus a half point for that cool Breckenridge label.

S - Odd. Not sure what the smell is, but it actually doesn't smell very good. Sort of a sour stench. Some wheat in there as well.

T - Good. A nice wheaty base with some citrus notes. Not nearly as sour as I was anticipating.

M - Smooth. Some carbonation which quickly fades. Not much of an aftertaste.

Summary - Glad I gave this one a try. Honestly, I know what Agave is, but have never tried it in anything (beside tequila). Maybe I will after this. Nice beer.

3.26/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

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.
