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.

Don't drink cold, otherwise very simple, bland beer good for sessions

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.
