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.

My first beer with agave added. This seemed like an interesting concept.

Apperance: served chilled in my Unibroue "Maudite" tulip. Pours lively, cloudy orange hue with a thin fast fizzing head.

Smell: hints of honey and orange blossom, slightly muted.

Taste: sweet on the entry with a flash of husky wheat, very bready, and a soft finish.

A decent wheat beer, the agave add to the sweetness of the wheat.
