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...

Great orange color, flavor is citrusy at first and finishes well. Good beer over all.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, there is no "best by" date that I can find.

APPEARANCE: pours a hazy, golden color with less than one-finger white head that quickly dissipated until a thin, broken layer of small bubbles remained, there is some lacing on the glass, lighter carbonation.

SMELL: bread, banana and some citrus.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially sweet agave and then banana bread.

PALATE: medium body and lighter carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a very good wheat beer, It's something a little different with the sweet agave, I would recommend to anyone who enjoys the style.

My excitement for this beer was eclipsed by its mediocrity. At the end of the day, there's not even a hint of anything related to tequila; all you have is a very bland wheat beer from an underwhelming brewery.
