Brilliant clear golden body with a massive white head, forms a thick band of lacing with each sip. Not bad smelling initially some biscuit malts, sharp wheat, and earthy quality. Pretty muted at first, but after a few sips and I let it warm there's the agave nectar, slightly syrupy notes arising. Flavor has more cereal grain, sharp wheat notes, and lingering sweetness that comes off as a simple syrup. I can see how this stuff could get fermented into Tequila, sharp sweet character from the agave additions. I'm not sure that it helps the flavor any. It's actually tooth numbingly sweet, and it doesn't help the overall beer any. I could definitely pass on this the next time, bad idea. I could see that if it was inspired by trips across Mexico. Mouthfeel is pretty cloying the sweetness is just too much ferment and distill this out into a new hybrid Tequila before drinking it. Light to medium boy linger residual sugars are the part I'm having a hard time with, carbonation no complaints in that department. Overall, hard to consume just not an enjoyable flavor profile, that's as constructive as I can be.

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...
