Poured into a shaker pint glass. The beer is a hazy rusty honey color. The white sea-foam head eventually dissipates to a thin film of bubbles. Light lacing occurs. The beer smells quite sweet and tropical with faint malt and wheat in the background. The taste is spot-on for the name -- the sweet agave nectar hits first, followed by a classic unfiltered wheat backbone. The mouthfeel is medium to light bodied and very drinkable.

Overall, I like this take on the wheat beer. How many agave wheat beers are out there? The low ABV is great for sessioning this anytime of year, in my opinion. This is not my favourite Breckenridge beer by any means, but it most definitely is my favourite wheat beer.

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

Appearance - Pours a hazy, bright yellow-orange color with a VERY thin frothy head that dissipates instantly. Thin, creamy looking lacing.

Smell - Very sweet. I've never had an agave before but I can tell the strong sweet smell is the nectar. Along with honey, orange, wheat, and floral hops.

Taste - Agave nectar, citrus, wheat, clove, white pepper, and a very light alcohol aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Light in body with medium carbonation.

Overall - This beer is very refreshing and it was nice to try something different with the agave. I like it a lot.

Unfiltered wheat ale brewed with agave nectar

EYE
hazy blonde tangerine

NOSE
sour & herbal (over ripe orange blossom)

BUBBLES
light and fast spritz

MOUTH
thin and almost watery

TASTE
fresh herbal 'hop' with tart, almost sour, wheat...

This beer has a fresh zing, and is wet enough to be thirst quenching. This yeast flavour is more like a light lager than a heffeweizen. This might be a suitable lawn mowing beer.

Bottle into pint. No bottle/expire date.

a Quarter of a finger of white head quickly dissipates. Cloudy orange/tan. Minor white lacing traces lines down the sides of the glass during tasting.

s Distinct wheat with a matching pair of grapefruit and ripe, almost overripe, citrus.

t Grapefruit and citrus from beginning to almost the end of the taste. Mild citrus hops linger at the back of the tongue.

m Even carbonation tingles the tongue. Medium body rolls around nicely. Easy to taste and taste again.

o A drinkable wheat. Some smoothness that I did not expect from wheat. Went looking for something unique with the agave found a smooth wheat.
