This starts pretty well, with a rocky head leaving behind sticky lace atop a tight bubbled white head. The nose is full of wheat and vague fruit flavors. The flavor is intially sour and intense but then loosening up into a sweeter, wheat enfused vibe before finishing kind of in the middle flavor wise but very dry. Kind of interesting , at least.

Very mild, very light, but very in remarkable...

The coloration is cloudy but still copperish with weak head. Smell is muted, nothing really discernible, and the mouthfeel is light on carbonation with a taste that is also light on flavor. I’m not impressed with this drink but it was definitely sessionable...

Look - clear yellow-gold. 2 - 3 finger head out of a 12 oz can that quickly dissipated and pretty much went flat
Smell - hint of cracker, honey, and biscuit - very subdued
Taste - very light in flavor - like a "lite beer" - some sweet malt - with bread/yeast/cracker flavor - hints of white grape
Feel - pretty thin and flatten right out
Overall - a decent lighter beer for a hot day. Not what I would drink regularly but a decent beer for social drinking

Lemondrop yellow. Bright white foam settles quickly.
Flavor and feel are as light and summery as the color, without being watery. Bubbles are light and plentiful.

On draught at Old Chicago.

Pours a hazy orange yellow with a small head of foam, good lacing.

Smell is of wheat, fruity in an odd way..agave.
Really light lifeless aromas

Taste is strong wheat, earthy agave, hint of tartness, otherwise lacking in flavour to my palate.

Drinkable but not more than 1 glass wanted.

Agave Wheat | Breckenridge Brewery. Poured from the can into a pint glass, this brew's got a three finger thick head, with spotty lacing, and a hazed medium golden amber body.

I smell, you've guessed it, agave mixed in with the traditional wheat ale elements.

The taste is actually a nice blend of the ingredients of this brew. The agave is nice and subtle, which lets the ale itself shine.

Medium-light mouthfeel with fair carbonation.

I'll go ahead and rate Agave Wheat | Breckenridge Brewery with a 4.25

Agave Wheat brewed by Breckenridge Brewery, with an ABV of 4.20% This brew pours out a nice cloudy golden amber color with a nice thick white head. The head to this brew sticks around for awhile, there is also a nice amount of lacing. The lacing sticks to the side of the glass well. There is a lot going on in the smell of this brew. You first pick up on mild spices and citrus flavors. Then a nice amount of grains and malts. The hops are there, they are a nice an mild. This brew is a really nice and inviting. Now for the taste, it is bold and rich with flavors. There is a real nice bitter sweet bite to this brew , the spices give this brew a nice touch. There is a lot going on in Agave Wheat, this is a nice smooth drinking brew. Agave Wheat has a super nice balance to it, there is nothing overpowering about this brew.

Hazy orange gold, unfiltered beer. Nice head at first, gone within 30 seconds. Spotty lacing on the sides. Yeasty, wheat smell (not too strong) with, and just a tiny note of, faint and pale type of fruit. Hard to pick up. Taste is so light it's also difficult to analyze. It is a light wheat, American yeast, grassy tasting ale. Really mellow, this is a beer you don't even think about or concentrate on. Sessionable would be an understatement. Doesn't even feel heavy in calories. Really not a bad beer. I don't think it deserves some of the horrible feedback; of course there are companies doing tastier, fuller, more complex, and more enjoyable beers. Maybe it's just the money people are upset about haha. The description of creative doesn't exactly fit either. This is a very simple beer. Buy it for your guests who don't have a developed pallet. I'm sure they'll thank you later.

Right off the bat, the pour is hella carbonated, with strange, quickly receding foam that reminds me of cheap beer. The taste is very crisp and refreshing, you have to try really hard to taste the slightly sweet and fruity taste of agave. It's quite drinkable, but lacking any expected uniqueness.

From the older can, it pours a hazy light amber with a modest head, reducing to a ring with islands. Some citrus (or agave) in the nose. In the mouth, it is lightly sweet, with grainy notes, and refreshing.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a decent looking hazy orange to gold color with a one finger white foamy head that died within less than thirty seconds. The lacing was slightly stringy. The smell was sweet citrus (little bit of lemon and orange) with a little bit of refreshing sweet grassy fruit (agave, I’m guessing). The taste was sweet and somewhat grassy. There’s a slight wheatiness to it. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a decent sessionable quality about it. There’s a slight refreshing long sweet texture accommodating this feel. Overall, first time I had this I didn’t like it, but this time, yeah, hit the spot.

I always like to try the fruit-infused beers and hope they are not too intense. This one is not intense enough, bery bready on the scent, even more so on the taste, but you can taste the agave. Color is light yellow and the head dissipates quickly. I expected more, a little disappointed.

This is one of those beers I've drank on occasion but never here we go. Very light colored and clear with a quickly receeding head. Scent is of bready malt with little else detectable. This is a very mild wheat beer but I like the agave in the flavor profile. Very drinkable and quite thin with a crisp finish.

Glad I had this again and could up the rating along with this review. \
Have this beer when you refreshing, gentle and different.
Looks like most wheats, cloudy, nice foam that goes away... just average. Smells also come in nondescript along with an uneventful Taste. While it is refreshing, not much stands out except it is a wonderfully soft and gentle wheat beer.
OA: No WOW factor, but if it is a hot day and you need to keep your liquid levels up... Agave will only help.

12 oz bottle.

Aroma: unappealing and musty but not unlike some other wheat beers.

Flavor: much better than the aroma. Citrus and agave notes with hints of bananas and honey.

Feel: medium light body with medium carbonation.

Pours an almost clear deep pumpkin gold. Unbelievably clear for an unfiltered wheat brew. The pour produces 1.5 fingers of frothy, off-white, shortlived head that leaves a slim collar ring & no lacing. Aroma is thin wheat, slightly perfumey & more than a little sweet fruitiness mixed with earth, vegetal & mineral hints. Taste is an almost contradictory potpourri of tangy, sweet, fruity, floral, vegetal & medicinal with a slight toasted malt hint. The sip is tangy/sweet up front with a juicy but mineral finish. Aftertaste starts fruity but transitions to mineral & lightly bitter that rapidly fades to no more than a slight astringency. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation, a light prickle, juciy in the finish with a astringent aftertaste.

A lighter, sweeter wheat beer. This has all the qualities of a wheat beer with the twist of agave nectar. Some who like wheat beer and enjoy a lighter, more crisp beer could really enjoy this one.

As one may expect, this tastes like a wheat beer with just a touch of herbal sweetness. Had on a hot day at a local baseball game, I found this beer to be quite enjoyable.

Hazy gold colored body floating a .75 in. whitish head and slight lacing.
Sweet wheat bread, banana, and faint citrus aromas. Flavors are similar with agave sweetness.

It doesn't suck.

Tasted in a 16 oz wheat glass from draft at Emil's on May 17, 2017. Look hazy yellow, excellent head retention and spotty lacing. Smell is bread, nut, yeast, cactus and some spice aromas. Taste is bread dough, biscuit malt, fruit and nut flavors. Feel is light in body, smooth and a little dry and bitter in the finish.

Pours a hazy, golden color. 5/4 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of strong wheat, pale malt, slight sweet malt, hint of earthy'herbal (agave?), and slight hops. Fits the style of an Herbed / Spiced Beer or an American Pale Wheat Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong wheat, strong pale malt, slight sweet malt, slight hops, and slight earthy/herbal flavor ( agave?). Overall, good appearance, decent aroma, body, and blend. A pretty solid wheat backbone.

Pours hazy gold with foamy white head, but disappears quickly without much lacing. Smells of a nicely of wheat, yeast and malt. Pleasant on the nose. Tastes solid and sweet for a wheat, but somehow underwhelming. Easy to drink and forget.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass. A hazy yellow color with a 1-finger white head that quickly dissipates.
A decent wheat beer, but nothing to rave about.

Cloudy bright golden body, soapy white head, mild carbonation visible. Smell is grain and mild hops, faint chalk, faint herbs. The flavor tastes like an adjunct lager with mild guava notes tacked on at the end, but transforms before my very papillae to take on a buttery pizza-herb like flavor, perhaps similar to jasmine. Neither dry nor bitter.
It was drinkable, but there was a train wreck that happened between idea and execution. The guava flavor was a flash in the pan, right before a whole big mess of questionable flavors took over. Let's all just collectively forget this one...
