Pours a clean golden amber with fine white head. Virtually no lace here.

Aroma is sweet and malty. I get tones of honey and a wee bit of hops. Not bad.

Taste is, as expected, malty and sweet. The agave nectar imbibes a honey-like sweetness that I can't get past. To it's credit, it drinks smoothly, but there's a distinct lack of complexity and a one-dimensionality that kills this one for me. Average at best.

This beer is not one that I will buy again. I gave it a shot despite bad reviews because I like the other Blue Moon beers. I won't make that mistake again! It did not have a very distinct taste. Seemed to have too much going on. The only positive is that it did seem to improve towards the end.

Poured a golden color which looked like an average lager.

Minimal foam approximately 1/4".

A biscuity, yeasty, aroma with a little bit of citrus.

The taste was average at best. It left a bit of a slick feel in the mouth which was a little disconcerting. Overall this was an average beer at best. I am comparing it to other agave wheats that I have tried and it doesn't come close to stacking up.

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.

Out of the bottle the body has a slight green tinge, but a mostly bronze and clear body, with some good amount of cola sized carbonation. Head is bleach white, a little creamy and also soapy retention, but settles to a half finger puck.

Bouquet is kind of small but pleasant. Light grains, a sense of small sweet floral like sense syrup and a hint of wheat density. Not bad.

Palate hits with a real noticeable sweetness. Syrup body with a hint of wet character and nearly flat texture. Minimal feeling carbonation strangely. Hints of sugar syrup with hardly any malt presence. Hints at a little touch of malt beverage alcohol warmth also.

I am not seeing what the appeal is here, this hardly tastes like beer, it's more of a sugary almost malt beverage sensation, and I am not finding this really appealing at all.
