Breckenridge Agave Wheat

I hate the first day of work after a long weekend. I had a full day of work and then headed off to the gym. I had a decent workout and got in about 30 minutes of cardio in. Not a bad day. The best way to cap off a day like this? Pop open a brew…

ABV: 4.2%

Style: Herbed/Spiced Beer

Trivia: According to wikipedia, “Agave nectar (also called agave syrup) is a sweetener commercially produced in Mexico and South Africa from several species of agave, including the Blue Agave (Agave tequilana), Salmiana Agave (Agave salmiana), Green Agave, Grey Agave, Thorny Agave, and Rainbow Agave. Agave nectar is sweeter than honey, though less viscous. The majority of agave nectar around the world comes from Jalisco in Mexico and the Eastern Cape Province in South Africa. However, in Mexico, in addition to coming from Jalisco, the product is also produced in the states of Michoacán, Guanajuato and Tamaulipas.”

Random: I find it interesting that this is classified as a herbed/spiced beer. It seems like there is a lot of variability in this style…

This brew poured a hazy golden-yellow with a barely there white head. The head dissipated to nothing almost instantly and didn’t leave any sort of lacing on the glass. I struggled to see some moderate carbonation on the body. The nose was definitely interesting…I got definite sweetness that reminded me a bit of honey. I also got a hint of…apple juice? Odd…anyways, the first sip is definitely crisp with a hint of sweetness. I’m going to take a wild guess on this one and say that it was the agave nectar that was added. I also got some very mild citrus on this and not much else. This was definitely a mild beer and the body was very thin. This could have definitely used a little bit more carbonation. Honestly, there just wasn’t much to this beer. I guess I just thought it would have a little more flavor than it did. This is just an eh beer for me. I wouldn’t have it again.
