3.48/5  rDev +3%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Straw yellow in color, hazy, with a fairly large white head. Loads and loads of carbonation. The side of the glass has lots of carbonation bubbles stuck to it, and the beer looks like an upside-down waterfall of CO2 bubbles. Not much lacing, just some small patches of bubbles.

S: I get some fruity scents that smell mostly like oranges. It's very faint.

T: The thing that pops out the most is what I would surmise is agave. It's a fruit-like flavor that is slightly sharp then mellows out. The wheat follows up in the aftertaste. The fruit flavor quickly becomes forgettable while drinking and fades away in the palate, leaving a mediocre wheat beer in its place.

M: The mouthfeel is fairly smooth and creamy, with a brightness of carbonation. It is filling and refreshing.

O: Overall I thought it was a pretty good beer, but nothing to jump up and take notice of. I would have preferred a stronger wheat beer with a more robust wheat flavor to compliment the agave character. I probably wouldn't drink it again.

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.
