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.

Lots of sediment/cloudiness from the yellow pour with about 1" of head of the white variety on it. Aroma, I guess this is agave flavor country.

Taste, not much going on, no off flavors. Mouthfeel comes off on that wheat grist tip.
Fruited wheat ale. You know how these go. They have their place, prolly not for the type who reads or writes reviews though.

Look: Cloudy golden orange color pours with very little head.

Smell: Lots of citrus, some yeast and a little honey/sweetness.

Taste: Lemon peel some very slight bitterness, grainy and bready, slight underlying honey sweetness.

Feel: Easy drinking light body, higher carbonation.

Overall: Easy drinking wheat beer.
