I really enjoy visiting Mari's Six Pac 'n' Mor in Reading because not only is it a friendly, inviting atmosphere, but everything is available as a single! That may not register of people out-of-state, but PA's case law makes it VERY difficult to buy less than a sixer as a general rule. I am like a hippie in that I will try anything once, man. Beyond that, it had better be a WOW!
From the bottle: "This blonde wheat ale is crafted with agave nectar for a subtle sweetness and a balanced taste."; "Inspired by our brewmaster's travels through Mexico, our Agave Nectar Ale is crafted with agave nectar and white wheat for a subtle sweetness and a smooth, crisp finish. It's like a little shade in a bottle."
Ultra-fresh, but perhaps too early as it is still quite cool for Spring. No shade needed as I began my pour, resulting in two dense fingers of bone-white head with great retention. Color was a deep golden-yellow with NE-quality clarity. Across the room, I saw Midas and Croesus rubbing their hands together but this was all mine. Nose had more of a lager-like honey sweetness along with a lime-like citrusiness. Interesting. Mouthfeel was medium with a very honey-wheat sweet flavor on the tongue. I was reminded of my late Pops' traditional breakfast of Wheaties in drinking this. I think that I will recommend a change since "Fruit/Vegetable Beer" is supposed to go away anyway. Finish was pleasantly dry and refreshing and I could easily see quaffing a few of these during the summer.

A: Clear light gold. Low white head and bubbly. Looks like coors light.
S: Rice. Light alcohol note.
T: Weird sour mash flavor. I get an unseasoned fatty sort of flavor. The end finishes a too sweet for me, no doubt from the extra agave sugars.
M: Light. Thin. A little sugary mouthcoating aftertaste.
O: Too sweet for me. I'm not snooty about weird ingredients in my beers, but this was a miss.

This is an OK offering from Blue Moon...mine says Agave Nectar Ale...I suppose it is the same as the blonde..is a blone ale.
A: Yellow with a little lacing when pored
S: Sweet...you can kinda get an agave like hint in there
T: Wheat, sweet, Agave ...a little citrus hint...like a really sweet Blue moon Wheat..but with no Belgian spices
M: very smmmmoooth...on a hot day these things would go down like water...
Overall...not a bad beer. Sweet, kinda tangy...smooth...not over carbonated...you could drink a bunch of these...not too filling.
Descent..but a plain Blue Moon Whitbeer would be better...

Appearance - Pours clear and golden, with a white finger width head. Fair retention. Lacing is spotty at best, with poor stick.
Smell - Smells... like an adjunct lager. Odd. Grainy and sweet.
Taste - Light. Grains and sweetness mostly, with a bit of wheat poking through mid-taste. Sweetness from the agave can be tasted throughout, but really shows most in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - Light to medium body with a crisp bite from the carbonation. Semi-dry finish.
Overall - Not much to this brew; I think it's ambition is greater than the end result. Drinks closer to an adjunct lager than a pale wheat ale. I wouldn't buy this again, but I'd accept if offered.
