look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Appearance - Pours a hazy pale yellow with a fizzy white finger width head. Poor retention, resulting in a poor, spotty lace.

Smell - Smells faintly of mellow banana and some grassy, floral hops.

Taste - Weak notes of banana and a grassy hop... saved by decent amount of clove spice. Finishes with that spice and a bit of coriander.

Mouthfeel - Watery body, with a near dead carbonation.

Overall - My buddy recommended this beer, and I think maybe he was playing an evil trick on me. Terribly weak from nearly every possible angle, this is not a wheat beer that I'd care to try again.

3.18/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance –Pours a lightly hazed golden color with a one finger head. The head fades slowly over time to give a fair amount of lacing.

Smell – The aroma was heaviest of bread with lighter notes of caramel and some yeast. Mixed with this was a very light lemon citrus hop aromas as well as some banana.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter malt taste with strong caramel and wheat tastes. As the flavor advances the sweetness fades slightly with notes of a lemon hop flavor coming to the tongue. This takes the taste to the end were it mixes with yeast and banana flavors to leave a satisfying flavor on the tongue.

Mouthfeeel – The brew was on the average side in body with a medium level of carbonation. Both are fitting for the flavors but nothing spectacular.

Overall –Very easy drinking, but a little subtle and boring for the most part.

A 12 oz bottle picked up at Total Wine in Columbia, SC

A - a hazy blonde, with a decent amount of clarity. 1 finger of head and a touch of sticky lace left on the glass

S - Banana, sweet malts, wheat. Very nice aroma

T - Pears, bananas, wheat, with a slight hop kick at the end. Tasty!

M - Medium bodied, well balanced. High carbonation.

O - A very tasty blonde wheat ale. Excellent for a hot summer july evening.

Sweaty Betty from Boulder Beer Company pours a hazy, pale yellow and is capped by a big frothy white head that leaves a good deal of lacing. Aromas of wheat, banana, yeast, lemon, and spice create a rich, and wonderful bouquet. The banana and wheat standout on the pallet, with the malt providing initial sweetness and eventually a slight breadiness, hints of pepper and citrus lurk out as well, very flavorful. Medium-light in body, this refreshing brew is low to moderate in carbonation. Refreshing on a hot summer evening!

Cheers!

Crisp, Clean and refreshing. I will buy over Harpoon and SA. Certainly will suit the non-traditional Hefe taster as it may seem "light" to those more experienced palates. Also, checks in at 5.9% but doesn't taste like it. I loved the finish and after taste.
