Pours a clear, light yellow color with a little fizz, not even enough to create much of a head. The aroma is grainy with a bit of spice. The taste and texture is thin as expected but the spice is much bolder than I was expecting. The blue agave nectar of course adds sweetness to the flavor. Not bad, but also not something I would plan on buying again.

Pours a pale straw yellow, with a plentiful quad-finger head of white suds. Almost no trace of lace, though, oddly.

Nose says some spice, corn malts. Curious mix.

Taste is sweet for sure, no doubt from the agave syrup infusion and sweet adjunct malts. There's a spicy and hoppy kick there, at the finish, luckily. Not bad, and one I'd like to re-taste to get a better idea of this unusual flavor combination.

Promo bottle received 6/11. I was skeptical to be sure, but this one is worse than my already lowered expectations. the pale gold color with thin, soapy head that actually laced the glass are the best parts of this attempt by Cerveceria Cuauhtemoc to cash in on the flavored wheat beer craze. aromas of spent grain husks, skunk, and hints of sweetener great the nostrils. can't tell there is any wheat in the malt bill. across the tongue i detect more corn sweetness, little to no carbonation, and, fortunately, no lingering aftertaste. i doubt even the shocktop crowd will fall for this gimmick.

Have you ever had Sweetwaters Blue? If so, than you've had this. Who would have thought that blue agave would have such a blueberry scent and taste. Albeit, it's a tad artificial. It's not bad and makes for an easily drinkable beer I just wish it had a bit more heft.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of spices, citrus, agave. Taste is very refreshing. Sweet, agave nectar, citrus, some spice, highly sessionable. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a good quality beer.

Dos Equis Azul has a medium, white head, a clear, gold-straw appearance, with a few stray bubbles and minimal lacing. The aroma is of malt, wheat, spices of some sort, and sweetness. Taste is of all that, with a noticeable citrus fruit aspect. Mouthfeel is medium, and Dos Equis Azul finishes mostly wet and easy drinking. Overall, this is okay, but to be fair, I am not favorable towards the flavored beer style.
