I picked this ole jewel up at my regular grocery store for $7.37.
I have had several Blue Moon products over the years and although I would not consider them a top notch innovator in the industry, I still enjoy their products.
This particular product caught my eye when it read "agave"---I know what it is but have no idea what it is supposed to taste like---so i bought it.
I assume that agave is sweet like unroasted barley and corn....that was pretty much what I got out of it. I have no idea if they use adjucts in their beer but it posessed that type of sweetness----and just enough bitterness to identify. Nice body- mouthfill and body were on par for a 5.6% abv.
I wish i could give a better reveiw, but I could not pull any real complexity from this beer....I liked it-better than my budget beer I usually keep in stock-bolder sweetness if nothing else-but not enough to spend $7.37 on it again.
Looks like i am going to have to give this a slightly better than average rating...3.25

DATE TASTED: February 22, 2014... GLASSWARE: Weihenstaphaner weizen .. OCCASION: final night to cheer on our winter Olympians... APPEARANCE: copper-gold body with uneven effervescence; thin, off-white head presents no immediate thickness; no tracing = not inviting... AROMA: pungent,, malty; tougher to pick out thee agave--comes across more as a candied apple...PALATE: a bit dry; slight, oily mouthfeel--drinkable but indistinguishable...TASTE: tangy, metallic aftertaste; malty, syrupy sweet; some fruity, lemony wheatgrass too; rather bland, however, like an original Blue Moon that got itself confused at the factory... OVERALL: I feared this review--not interested in slamming tonight--and yet the beer did not repulse as its first summer sampling had--only wet my lips and slightly refreshed my thirst...did the delayed rating weaken its taste? ...
