A: hazy golden color with a 1 finger width quickly dissolving head.
S: has a deep wheat and yeast smell with sweat apricot sliding in.
T: little to much taste coming from the yeast making it a little over powering and hides the rest of the beer's character.
M/D: medium bodied and feels slightly harsh in the mouth. Drinkability is ok but not something I like to continue drinking.

Sweaty Betty pours out like a typical wheat beer with some haze but also seems a bit lighter in color. The aroma smells soft like wheat and some banana. The taste is on the light side, almost too light for a wheat beer in my opinion. The mouthfeel is very drinkable and easy going. I just wish this beer was a little bit more flavorful. It really doesn't have many bragging rights. There are better wheat beers out there than this one.

Pours a hazy grapefruit color with a decent (controlled) head and great lace.
Smell is MIA with just the faintest hints of citrus, malt amd banana.
Taste is betteer, with malt, grapefruit, banana and light hops. Hops fades to banana in the aftertaste and gets a bit cloying.
A medium bodied ale, OK to drink but I wouldn't recommend or repeat.

Fairly strong aroma is wheaty and yeasty with just a touch of lemon. It pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a fluffy and none too persistent white head. Flavor is wheaty with a hint of citrus, slightly yeasty, not all that inspiring. Flavor is smooth and fairly tingly, sometimes just a tad watery.

Sweaty betty Blonde. This beer didn't look like a wheat beer, it was very clear and had an odd acidic taste. Maybe this beer was handled poorly before I tasted it, but maybe not.

A This beer was poured by the bar keep and was super clear, so much so that it looked like an American pils. It had a big head that went away almost immediately.

S sweet estery smell.

T There is a little acidic green apple taste that has a puckering effect. It is unique and unlike other wheat beers.

M Thin a little malty sweet. Low carbonation.

O This is not my style. I like wheat beers, but prefer the banana flavors over the apple, it's a personal thing I know. It is worth a try, but I'm glad I don't have a six pack.
