Appearance - Pours a hazy, bright yellow-orange color with a VERY thin frothy head that dissipates instantly. Thin, creamy looking lacing.
Smell - Very sweet. I've never had an agave before but I can tell the strong sweet smell is the nectar. Along with honey, orange, wheat, and floral hops.
Taste - Agave nectar, citrus, wheat, clove, white pepper, and a very light alcohol aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - Light in body with medium carbonation.
Overall - This beer is very refreshing and it was nice to try something different with the agave. I like it a lot.

I bought this beer in a six pack for about 8.00 in colorado. The bottle looked cool and I enjoy wheat beer, so I thought I would try it.
This wheat beer pours a very cloudy golden orange color. I actually held the class to a light and could not see through it. It poured a small head that quickly vanished. Not much carbonation. The smell was of wheat and a light citrus. Taste was a lot like the smell with hint of agave. I liked this beer because it did'n't have that over bearing orange taste. It was well balanced. This is a great wheat beer a would highly recommend trying it.

This beer looks much like grapefruit juice as it is a rather cloudy pale color that fades to a dirty orange or red in the middle. I'm a grapefruit fan, so this is pretty enticing so far. The head is nil, but I gave it a careful pour. Just a few bubbling spots around the collar.
The nose is quite dim with only traces of strawberry and rhubarb coming through. There's also a musky touch of wheat and some dry lime rind too.
Tastes similar but far more prominent. There's a sharp wheat base here that leans towards the more sour wheat flavors but is quickly taken away by electric pin-pricks of CO2 that feel a bit like lime. It's almost as if this is a barrier that keeps a honey and aloe (i hope I'm not making this up) flavor at bay. The way these flavors jostle with each other is remarkable.
This is surprisingly clean and light. There's a clear density to this one, but it hovers off of my tongue because of some huge playful bubbles that add an electric charge.
At 4.2%, this one's a dream. It's so clean, snappy and fresh, it's a summertime must.

(11/11/2011) Poured into a Sam Adam's Perfect Pint Glass. Not much head and quickly dissipating, effervescent head.
A: Earthy and grassy organic aroma.
C: Dark yellow color, cloudy
Sip: Earthy wheat malt flavor with a grassy pepper touch from the agave.
OV: Very cool take on a wheat beer, spicy and peppery without being overpowering. This beer wasn't too much to rave over but the originality of this brew and natural taste make it worth buying especially for a summer ale.
