I've always enjoyed the sweeter wheats and this definitely fit that bill. It's for the lighter, more summery taste and it's quite refreshing. If you like Guinness, you may not like this. If you like Corona, you probably will.

I've never been particular about things like appearance and smell, but that's not to say there's anything wrong with it. Mouthfeel and taste are notable however.

Super cloudy but clean tasting wheat ale.

Agave flavor is very mild.

This seems like it would be good for someone who likes Blue Moon but wants to branch out a bit.

I basically don't care for wheat ales unless they are loaded with fruit flavors or in some other way augmented. This is not that. Unless you're a wheat beer fan or just really want a wheat ale I don't see any reason to reach for this one.

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

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.

Poured into a weizen glass.

4.0 A: Hazed dark orange color. Two fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is average and a good bit of lacing is left.

2.0 S: Dry and dusty. Doesn't really smell like anything aside from some neutral wheat.

2.5 T: Taste is pretty much the same, although you can taste the agave. Sweeter with a stronger malt presence than the nose.

4.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Excellently creamy. Well done here.

3.0 D: Mediocre brew that has a great mouthfeel.
