Wheat beer with agave nectar. This should be different. From a 12 ounce bottle, on to the beer:

In a weizen glass, it looks like the usual wheat ale. An unfiltered, cloudy, sand colored body, topped with a somewhat creamy head on top with an inch of thickness on the pour. The aroma is on the light side, though what you can smell reveals a few goodies. It is slightly sweet and fruity with a note of shredded wheat.

At the very least, it sways away from the becomingly common orange wheat and apricot wheat. The first thing tasted is that somewhat sweet, somewhat tangy agave. Just a little wheat malt makes its mark, so without the adjunct this would be a plain, boring wheat ale. It's light bodied and gently carbonation with a somewhat slick feel.

Decent fruit beer out of Breckenridge. Could be an interesting switch-up for orange juice during breakfast.

(Served in a strange)

A- This beer pours a murky dried orange peel color with a mass of big bubbles settling to a thin film and a slow carbonation.

S- The clean aroma has a hint of raw grain and a sanitary quality in the finish.

T- The woody field corn flavor with a hint of wheat bread growing to a dry finish and an odd little tang in the finish.

M- The light mouthfeel has a crisp fizz to it.

O- the light thin beer has an odd tang to it that might be agave flavor but it is a bit too soft to tell. There are some wheat hint s but not much.

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a weizen glass

A - It is cloudy, of course, and yellow orange in color with some pale yellow highlights. It is capped with two inches of fluffy, white head.

S - It has a tart wheat smell.

T - The base is a decent wheat beer. I do get a little tartness and agave. It is subtle.

M - Medium and highly carbonated.

O - I was craving something light after a long day of work. This hit the spot, kind of. It's decent, but wheat beers aren't really my thing.
