God Bless Max's Taphouse in Baltimore!

If looks could deceive...

Nice smell & the taste is out of this world. Loved the orange with it.
Nothing like Blue Moon - flavor stays with you. A little hoppy but after a few dull beers - refreshing.

Would pair well with a beef or chicken burger or after a few dull beers. Not a beer to start off with...

pours a thick cloudy yellow color into a frosty pint glass with a 2 inch white head. smells yeasty, and is very visibly unfiltered. also some bitter hops in there and wheat malts. flavor is refreshing, mildly fruity, and you can definitely taste agave, which by itself is a rather difficult to describe, mildly sweet, lush plant. feel is too thick for this beer, too full bodied to be a good summer beer, but good carbonation keeps it fairly easy drinking. my pour was perhaps toward the bottom of the keg, because it was much thicker and more cloudy than the bottles of this that ive had. either way, a creative take on a wheat beer, just not my favorite breckenridge product.

Not the best wheat beer I've had. A bit watery and thin. Lacks body and is slightly over-carbonated for my liking. Hints of banana and bubble gum on the finish. Decent head that dissipated rather quickly. Minimal lacing. Wouldn't go out of the way for this one.

Uncap this and you get an explosion that makes you jam the bottle into your mouth while you run to the nearest sink.
My keyboard is all wet now since i opened this at my desk. Really quick and caught me off guard. infection? other issue?
Body color is hazy orange. some lacing.
The aroma gives off an agave, aloe vera like aroma, some banana, and wheat.
Once again the Agave is perceptible, rather strongly i would say too. Lemon is a standout, really sweet overall, carb is low making the mouthfeel undesirable.

Wont buy again.

Not the biggest fan of wheats, but I like one every now and then, especially if something is different about it. I've never had an agave beer before so I thought I'd give it a try.

The poor is cloudy and golden. What I usually like to see in a wheat beer. Decent head.

Not getting a lot of smell, but I attribute that to the other overpowering food smells in the restaurant.

Mouthfeel is fine. About what I expected. Certainly not watery.

Very disappointed in the taste. I don't know what I was expecting, but it I at least thought I'd get the sweat citrusy taste of a wheat or cloves. Its mostly bready tasting like a lager and very little sweetness.

I can see this being popular with people being introduced to craft beers, but it lacks the complexity I was hoping for.

Originally reviewed 2/12/12.

Oh hey, it's a beer brewed with agave nectar (as the label says). I can't say that I've seen anything like that before.

Pours a cloudy yellow color with a beautiful head into my glass. The color is right. The head is a plus. I can't see anything to complain about here.

Citrus and wheat welcome the nose to the show. The agave sticks around, which is quite the surprise. Otherwise, it's your run of the mill american pale wheat.

Ditto on the flavor. The agave adds some sweetness but not much else. I have to admit that it's a good attempt to diversify this example from others.

Finishes with a slightly acidic note but not much else. Standard wheat flavor lingers.

Not bad but you can do better. Perfect for someone who's never had the style though so good marks for that.

A- Pours a nice cloudy orange color with a small white head that disappears quickly

S- Has a decent aroma of Orange and barley and some hints of honey as well

T- Starts off with a sweet orange taste then followed by some wheat flavors and then ends with a citrus flavor

M- Medium Bodied with decent carbonation

D-Overall this was a very drinkable beer. Didn't have the complexity i was looking for but overall a very tasty brew. I prob. won't be seeking it out b/c i think there are other beers that are similar that i like way more. But overall i was pleased to try it.
