A – Low white head settles with below average retention and little-to-no lace. Solid gold body.

S – Strawberries, malt, light lemon citrus, and a agave sweetness. Light Riesling note.

T – Mellow wheat, biscuits, and soft kiwi. Trickle of herbal hops on the backend.

M – Light body. Semi-sweet finish.

O – Ok. Light and drinkable, but not nothing spectacular.

A lightly hazed pale goled-orange in color, this brew develops a light, creamy off-white head just under a finger tall that has pretty good but not great retention and leaves some spotty lacing as it drops.
The nose is as light as the style would dictate, but not thin or lacking much. The wheat throws down a solid backbone for a lightly floral and herbal hoppiness balanced by a very gentle and sort of natural sweetness. It's an interesting profile and a good one.
The taste does follow suit to a T. Wheat is solid, hops are light but present, balance is there from the sweetness combined with the wheat. This is a nice brew, not bland or lacking flavor like some APWAs (which I believe it is).
Particularly for style, this beer actually has a pretty body to it, with some depth that while light doesn't feel remotely thin. It's not heavy but it has a full creaminess to it yet still has a crispness and, unlike so many of its like, is actually genuinely refreshing. The finish is very quick, but it's a good feel.

This brew poured out as a hazy orange gold color with a fluffy white head on top. The head leaves a touch of lacing on the glass but nothing too exciting. The smell of the beer is sweet, it's got a nice minimal fruitiness to it balanced with the wheat in there too. The taste of the beer isn't too strong with the Agave, it's very subtle and tastes pretty refreshing regardless. The mouthfeel of the beer is smooth much like a typical wheat beer. Overall this brew isn't too bad. I think it's worth trying but probably won't knock your socks off.
