look: 2.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Poured a golden color which looked like an average lager.

Minimal foam approximately 1/4".

A biscuity, yeasty, aroma with a little bit of citrus.

The taste was average at best. It left a bit of a slick feel in the mouth which was a little disconcerting. Overall this was an average beer at best. I am comparing it to other agave wheats that I have tried and it doesn't come close to stacking up.

2.98/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.

Out of the bottle the body has a slight green tinge, but a mostly bronze and clear body, with some good amount of cola sized carbonation. Head is bleach white, a little creamy and also soapy retention, but settles to a half finger puck.

Bouquet is kind of small but pleasant. Light grains, a sense of small sweet floral like sense syrup and a hint of wheat density. Not bad.

Palate hits with a real noticeable sweetness. Syrup body with a hint of wet character and nearly flat texture. Minimal feeling carbonation strangely. Hints of sugar syrup with hardly any malt presence. Hints at a little touch of malt beverage alcohol warmth also.

I am not seeing what the appeal is here, this hardly tastes like beer, it's more of a sugary almost malt beverage sensation, and I am not finding this really appealing at all.

Twelve ounce bottle freshness stamped August 26, 2013.

Sweet biscuit scent. Pours honey yellow with large white head. Head quickly faded to a thin non-lacing film. Taste is not what I anticipated. I connect agave to Tequila and expected something like Budweisers' Tequiza. This is more of a cloying coriander and sour spice ale. Not a drain pour but nothing to buy again.

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

3.48/5  rDev +14.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a bright golden honey with a ton of bubbles. Has a 2 finger head with excellent retention

S- Light aromas of citrus, yeast and biscuits

T - Spicy tasting. Corriander? Light citrus in the background

M - A light beer, but has a good creamy feeling with lots of bubbles

O - A very refreshing beer. Would be enjoyable on a hot summer day in a pool. Would drink it again, but probably not one I'll pick up often.
