Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, beer is a very hazy, creamy peach color with a thin, stable head. Nose is mostly wheat, slight notes of fruit like pear and white grape. The flavor is similar to the nose with the wheat and fruity notes dominating, lingering bitterness on the finish. No real noticable flavor from the agave however the mouthfeel is heavier than I had anticipated with a thin yet creamy carbonation. Overall, a good wheat beer - nothing really special if you're looking for the agave to knock your socks off but a solid beer.

12 oz bottle poured into Sam Adams Perfect Pint Glass

A: Poured a hazy golden orange with a good 2 fingers worth of head that settles to a nice layer with wonderful lacing. Beautiful looking wheat beer.

S: Very sweet smelling, I'm really getting the agave with hints of honey, orange peel, wheat and a little floral hops. Smells great.

T: First thing I'm getting is the wheat then the sweet agave nectar kicks followed by a nice burst of citrus, clove, a little floral hops and finishes a little yeasty. Overall finish is clean with little aftertaste.

M: Light bodied with good carbonation. Nice wet and refreshing.

O: Very refreshing and slightly sweet take on wheat beer. Little more sweet than most wheat beers I've had. Worth looking for... Another good brew from Breckenridge.

A: Cloudy with particulate and good foam with a lace that stayed but little head and a weak yellow to orange color.

S: Weak juicy fruit with a weak malt hash. Not appetizing.

M: Sour, Wheaties, sweet tarts, all in the aftertaste. Sweet tarts was the most powerful.

T: Wheat and maybe passion fruit which is likely the agave. It's not tequila. Still, the sweet tart flavor makes this like candy which means a miss for me.

D: Nope. It's too sour and candy like, not my taste at all.

Not usually a fan of the agave nectar, however, this was actually pretty good

Uncap this and you get an explosion that makes you jam the bottle into your mouth while you run to the nearest sink.
My keyboard is all wet now since i opened this at my desk. Really quick and caught me off guard. infection? other issue?
Body color is hazy orange. some lacing.
The aroma gives off an agave, aloe vera like aroma, some banana, and wheat.
Once again the Agave is perceptible, rather strongly i would say too. Lemon is a standout, really sweet overall, carb is low making the mouthfeel undesirable.

Wont buy again.

This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a light burnt orange color with a slight transparency about it. Carbonation could be seen rising at a moderate pace. The head was fizzy with a mix between foaminess and bubbles. There was barely any lacing.
The smell started off with sweet agave and sweet wheat. Light citrus and pine also show a little bit of presence.
The taste was mainly sweet through the previously mentioned flavors. A sweet fruity aftertaste runs into the finish.
The mouthfeel sat about a light on the body with a good sessionability about it. The carbonation felt pretty light. This is definitely crushable.
Overall, pretty good stuff, its actually really sweet in the flavor all around but because it maintains a good sessionability, its a crushable one.
