Boiling potatoes so I gotta make this quick.

Appearance (4.25) : Pours a hazy almost 100% opaque apricot colored body. Very pretty. On top is a two fingered head that isn't going anywhere soon. Very nice appearance.

Aroma (3.75) : Some typical pale aromas but they are not strong or overpowering. There's a little orange peel, orange flesh, lemon, wet celery, cliantro, and then the typical barley wheat malt mixture. Bouquet is medium strength.

Taste (4) : Refreshing and yummy. Full on wheat, a pinch of orange, and a minor hop bite at the end. Finishes with a bit of rolled wheat and hop. It's very flavorful. Pleasantly surprised.

Mouthfeel (3.75) : Rich and creamy, almost wit territory. Ends snappy and sharp with a pinch of dry. Light to medium bodied.

Overall (3.95) : Great stuff. I'm sure I'd get tired of it after awhile but for this quick taste it has been exceptional. Now I will finish it while making lunch (dinner?).

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

16oz glass at Aviator's sports bar in Hall B of Denver International, during layover hell and, coincidentally, the Bronco's game I've been hearing about all week.

This beer appears a cloudy, medium apricot amber hue, with one thick finger of puffy and frothy off-white head, which leaves some dense snow rime lace around the glass after exhibiting some stellar retention.

It smells of bready, doughy wheat malt, orange rind, soft coriander, earthy yeast, and a mild hard water flintiness. The taste is gritty, grainy wheat, a bit of caramel, softer orange and white grapefruit peel, a simple syrup sweetness, mildly sour yeast, and muddled earthy spices.

The carbonation is mild, and gently lilting, with no real fizz, the body a rounded medium weight, quite smooth, and a touch creamy. It finishes off-dry, with a general sweet fruitiness.

A fairly tasty, well-made wheat beer, full-flavoured, and not too sweet. I guess the agave is more about helping the body out, or something, if I recall the Breckenridge episode I just watched on repeat for the past 4 days at GABF.
