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 rated...so 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.

I bought this as I just returned from Mexico City and had more tequila than I should have.
But I can say this: agave is better distilled than brewed.

12 oz bottle.

Look: hazy amber with a moderate size white head that has decent retention and leaves plenty of lacing.

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.
