3.14/5 rDev +4.3%
Appearance: Clear, deep golden amber with a huge white head which retains very well, with classic Belgian lacing, and vigorous streams of slow-rising carbonation.
Aroma: Notable bready wheat maltiness with a fairly dense note of bitter lime.
Taste: Opens with strong wheat malt flavors, a touch bready, and a bit spicy as well. Early in the taste, the agave appears, offering up a bitter, earthy lime note, which dominates the taste throughout. Finishes with a flourish of lingering, slightly earthy bitterness.
Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, full and pleasant, with the slightest sting of carbonation.
Drinkability/notes: An interesting example, very appropriate for summer. I found the agave/bitter lime a touch heavy-handed, a bit less might offer a better contrast to the spicy wheat malt.
Presentation: Packaged in a twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle with a twist-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice. Best by date of 09-02-2013.
Sourcing: A gift from Bill B., a connoisseur and brewer of great Scottish and Scotch ales.

12 ounce bottle, Sept0212 etched onto the neck of the bottle
Pours near clear, near yellowy lighter amber. Larger bubble, quickly departing head. Minor to no lacing.
A hint of wheat on the nose.
OK, working on staying positive, but this is some pretty insipid stuff.
More wheaty malts, not sure what agave nectar is supposed to taste like, but this one is on the sweeter side as advertized on the upper label
Only made it through about half of the bottle, rest went down the drain...
