Poured from a 600 mL bottle in Sao Paulo, BR. Hazy copper color with a decent foamy head. The aroma is predominantly sweet in which raw honey and banana dominate, with clove and wheat featuring strongly along with candied sugar and a slight metallic aspect. It tastes sweet from start to finish owing to the honey as well as some sugar from the malts. Light but slightly creamy at the same time. Sweetness is a bit cloying.

With the aid of indiginous honey and a South American mindset, the Colorado brewers are beating the summer heat with a refreshing wheat ale with a kiss of that alluring sweetness.

Honey-gold in appearance, the beer's color sells its honey additions well even with its sight. And with a quick rise and fall of an arid and cottony froth, its scent picks up on that delicate honey fragrance- seemingly of citrus, agave, earth and fresh baking bread dough. To taste, its the wheat and barley malt that starts the show with light caramels, breads and honies of their own.

Then as the bread and grain lifts, a supple sweetness remains and offers the middle palate a finesse honeysuckle taste and a sweet and simple syrup that's agave-like. With orange and lime trailing, the hops trend spicy and bitter with a hint of freshly grated ginger, sangria, pine and dried orange peel.

Though refreshing and delightful in taste, the beer's fast-fleeting carbonation leaves this medium-light ale feeling slightly more labored on the palate that should. As the sweetness seeps deeper and deeper, its fruit character reveals as bruised and the ale lacks the zesty lift that would ensure dryness, sprite and bubbly crispness.

Brazilian wheat beer brewed with honey of pale ocher/orange color with a nice foam but without a good texture.
Smell is malty, easy to feel the wheat aromas; honey is quite evident too; some banana, orange and apple notes.
Taste is malty and honey too, but not exagerated sweet. The bad thing here is that it becomes acid after a while; fruit notes are not evident here.
Mouthfeel is awesome.. a nice body and a great carbonation.
