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.

12oz can dated:07/08/16 poured into a bulbous pint glass.
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.
Mouthfeel is medium and there is a lingering malt aftertaste.
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.
