This beer recently took 1st place in the American Wheat category at a Brew fest in Rhode Island. Widmer Bros hefe came in second. Widmer Bros. hefe is my everyday favorite brew. So I had to give Sweaty Betty a try.... Not available in Utah I brought some home from a recent trip to AZ. This is a nice American Wheat. It has a hint of banana and clove, but not like a Bavarian style-hefe. It is more in the American wheat camp....smooth and not too spicy. It' s well worth a try if you like American wheats like Widmer, Pyramid, etc... If you're looking for a Bavarian style like Keller Weiss or any of the German wheats then it may not be spicy enough. If you're looking for a smooth American wheat with a just a hint of spice that goes down nice, then Sweaty Betty is a good choice. If it were available locally, I'd drink it regularly.
It also has a higher ABV at nearly 6 percent, but without the heavier spirit taste. You'd never know it from the taste. It goes down like a 4.8, so beware...it's smooth and w/. The higher alcohol content could pack a punch....

06/14 On tap. Really nice on this hot muggy afternoon. Most noticeable is the buttery mouth-feel, which I don't mind at all. Not sure the imagery of a Sweaty Betty is all that appealing on a hot summers day, but hey...
07/25/12 On tap. Lemony with out being citrusy, not that that's a bad thing. Clean finish with a medium body.

Summer time calls for lighter beers. Here's hoping Sweaty Betty can deliver. On to the beer:
A little paler thank banana peel yellow with a cloudy body, a thick semi-creamy head, and impressive head retention. The aroma is solid, bringing a watered down banana note, a vague spiciness, and light notes of grass.
Pleasant overall light flavor with enough soft flavors to give you drinking more and more. It's sweet in a creamy kind of way, tasting more like a cream-based dessert than a clean American wheat or full flavored German hefeweizen. Creamy banana is more present here than it was in the aroma, and makes the strongest point of the beer's taste. Subtle clove hits too. The beer has a light mouthfeel with soft carbonation, leading to easy drinkability.
Fair summer refresher out of Boulder, and a better choice than what you'll find at many summer parties.
