Topher - Yes Agave is fermentable like honey. Flavor wise, if you never have had it, its like a bastard child of maple syrup and honey.
Well it depends on how processed the particular syrup/nectar/whatever is. Some of it has more of a maple syrup flavor, some more of a honey flavor, and the really processed stuff tastes like simple syrup or corn syrup. The more processed, the cleaner the flavor. So if you want the agave flavor the more raw the better. It will ferment down to a flavor that is a cross between honey and tequila.
For this recipe, what product did you use? What kind of flavors do you detect from the agave?
