3.35/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

appearance: pours a bold, hazy yellow, well carbonated with bubbly white foam which dissipates to only about a quarter-inch thick.

smell: corn/wheat malts have some character, slight bittersweet hoppiness.

taste: begins clean, with malty characteristics quickly following, sequeing to a light honey-nectar sweetness that lingers on the undertones of the hops bitters in the finish.

overall: reminds me of something on the lines of a Magic Hat #9, sweeter characteristics brought forth from what I assume are the agave notes combined with the heightened quality of the malts makes this one worth a try.

intrigued by the packaging, gotta love dia de los muertos style art.

a: poured from a 12 oz bottle into pilsner glass. at first glimpse i was overwhelmed by the golden yellow color, very opaque, even moreso than many wheat brews.

s: smells slightly spicy and malty, whiffs of alcohol and not much else. when i first cracked the bottle a big whiff of muskiness came out which was definitely not a plus, but it seems to have gone away after pouring into a glass.

t: tastes like a decent wheat beer, bits of citrus flavor, nothing in your face. i don't really pick up on the agave taste, although maybe it was used to help ferment and has been eaten by the yeast?

m: has a light crisp mouthfeel, finishes nicely off the back of the palate.

o: nothing too special about this beer in my opinion but still a good brew. i would take this over your average american wheat beers, but i was expecting a more eccentric brew. so in that aspect, this beer has failed.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

This beer pours a slightly murky golden yellow color with a decent amount of foamy white head that dissipates rather quickly but leaves some lacing behind.

This beer has a spicy and yeasty smell to it. Not extremely aromatic but definitely smells like an herby beer. Some earthy tones are present too but subtle in comparison to the wheat.

Flavor wise it tastes like a pretty standard wheat beer but with a hint of floral/earthy flavors that come out at the end. Not sweet by any means like the agave would suggest though.

It is light bodied and there is a certain crispness present that makes it really drinkable. Carbonation level is just right.

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

Poured with a beautiful golden amber color that almost looked two-toned in the glass. Very cloudy with little head; less than a finger of bright white foam which was gone in a few seconds and barely came back when agitated. Very strong smells- some apricot present and an overwelming sourness akin to sourdough bread. After seeing and smelling Agave Wheat I expected some strong tastes, but didn't quite get them. There was the wheatiness that comes with unfiltered wheat beers and sour fruit that matched the smell, but I was hoping for an even stronger showing of sour fruit based on the smell. Nevertheless it was still good and it finished with a lingering tartness that I enjoyed. Definitely had some zip of carbonation to it. Mouthfeel was fairly watery and light. Very drinkable- the rest of the 6 pack will be easy to put down while sitting at the beach in the next few days. Tasty and somewhat unique- definitely worth a try.
