Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Date on the bottle says December 16th 2013
A: Clear amber color. Thin white head that stayed the duration of the beer. There was a small amount of lacing.
S: It smells sweet and malty thats all I could really pick up from it.
T: Malt is present. This beer doesn't taste like tequila( i was expecting it to). Its not disgusting just muddled and bland.
M: Its easy to drink, it has nice crisp carbonation. However there is an aftertaste that i don't enjoy.
O: Its always nice to try something new and diverse, however Im not a fan of this beer. I would drink it if it were offered to me, but i wouldn't order it or buy it again, id rather drink a macro brew(pbr,bud,rolling rock etc). I greatly prefer regular Blue Moon. Im sure someone out there loves this beer but that someone isn't me. Its appearance, ability to go down easily, and slightly higher abv are its redeeming qualities. If you want to try this I suggest getting it while you can, I honestly don't see Blue Moon making this one again.

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...

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.
