16oz glass at Aviator's sports bar in Hall B of Denver International, during layover hell and, coincidentally, the Broncos game that 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 adjunct 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.

Breckenridge so-so so far.

A: Cloudy, hazed yellow, good head retention and lacing

S: Bready, nutty, cactus?, spice, and pears.

T: Follows the smell with predominant pear, juicy body and a bit of spice cabinet.

Agave hard to pick out but it might account for the juicy feel.
Perfectly good Wheat beer.
