3.5/5 rDev +1.7%
Pours a very pale yellow w/ a half finger of bright white head...disappears quite rapidly w/ a thin layer remaining.
Lacing is very thin, but has a bit of hold to the side of the shaker glass.
Aroma is a hint of spiced hops and sweet malt...decent.
Not a huge fan of wheat beers, but the flavor is enjoyable and has a decent dose of hops. Not as spiced as the nose was portraying, but enough to give this one a slight edge.
Mouthfeel and carbonation average for the style.
I could enjoy a few of these on a hot day such as this...another fine offering from Boulder...a nice addition to the lineup.

Pours pale lightly hazed lemon, with a head that goes from 1 finger to zero in under 30 seconds.
Aromas of spice (coriander & ginger) citrus and grassy hallertaus.
Initial flavor of spices and citrus give way to rough grain. As it breaths lemon and orange emerge as the citrus. Spices well behaved as the understated hops dry the finish - leaving no bitterness. Light body and thin mouthfeel.
An unusual wheat beer.

OK, so it doesnt have the label Hefeweizen in the name anywhere. When I tried this beer, that is definitely what I thought it was. It poured a pale golden (yellow), and was certainly unfiltered. There was no head to speak of, and very little lace that didnt stay around anyway. Very slight aroma of vanilla and banana. The taste has the banana, and a little more citrus. No clove flavor that you might expect from a high-quality Hefe. I give this beer credit though, it had none of the chemical after-taste that many American Hefeweizens are full of (Why is that?). A very light mouth feel. Nice drinkability, this is an excellent hot weather beer (on a 90 degree Boston day).

This beer poured a cloudy straw color thick head. The aroma is quite fruity and a little sour. The taste is fruity and floral with some sourness in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is on the light side. This is a flavorful beer that is interesting and refreshing.

poured a very hazy straw color with close to a two finger white head that faded to just covering the beer with a sticky lace that followed the beer down the glass. aromas of wheat and lemon grass and spice. taste, wheat malt, lemon grass, cloves and other spices with a peppery ending lingers for a bit. mouthfeel is very light and crisp and spicy. will definitely be looking for more of sweaty betty.

A: Pours a cloudy blonde. Fizzy white head with very little retention. Looks like watered down orange juice.
S: Orange, lemons, wheat, bready.
T: Wheat base with a very artificial citrus twang throughout. Not very good, just tastes metallic and over fruited.
O: Not a very good brew, NEXT!

The guy who sold the bottle to me gave this beer a lot of praise. Pours a cloudy witbier blond with a disappointing soda fizz for a head. Smells good, though. Cloves, banana, yeasty sweet rolls. Altogether makes for an enticing aroma. Tastes just like it smells. For my taste it badly needs more carbonation. Rather than dancing on the tongue or delivering a refreshing feel, its body feels flat and lifeless, a bad quality in a summer beer. All in all, it tastes good and is worth trying but needs that extra carbonation to give it some snap.

What an aesthetic name... poured from the bottle into a pint glass, beer is a hazy, watery golden color with almost no head. Smell is actually similar to a hefe; there is a slightly spicy, clovey, banana presence. Taste is just like the nose... much better than the appearance. Mouthfeel is pretty light in both body and carbonation. Overall very drinkable, the alcohol isn't perceivable and it goes down easily. I would recommend this beer.

Poured gold with less than one finger of white, poor retention, and spotty lacing. Not much of a nose besides some modest banana and lemon. Very thin flavor profile, and raw bitter finish. Definitely missing more fruit balance. Thin bodied and decently carbonated. Nice feel for sessioning, but unfortunately not enough flavor.
