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.

Appearance: Ever so slightly hazy, golden, airy one finger head.

Aroma: Citrus, hops, mild. Not as fresh an aroma as some of its peers have.

Taste: Fairly mild, creamy. Some citrus and floral flavours, but it's a light variety of a hefeweizen.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, smooth.

Overall: Fits very hot weather, as it's extremely light, but I'd like more flavour...

3.45/5  rDev +0.3%

Poured into a standard pint glass. The beer is a hazy light straw color. It looks watery. The fizzy white head settles to a film of bubbles and there is decent lacing. The beers smells ... sweet and floral, but there's something in the aroma I can't pinpoint. Something metallic and tangy. The beer follows the general pattern for wheats, with it's grainy, grassy backbone, but there's something metallic and weird in this beer. The mouthfeel is light bodied, but highly carbonated.

Overall, I just didn't like this beer, period. Everything from it's appearance to taste had something about it i didn't like. I also don't like the 5.9% for a wheat beer, seems a bit high. However I don't regret trying it and I'll finish the sixer. Just not again.

3.6/5  rDev +4.7%

A: Lemon cream yellow with a sudsy, thick, and foamy head; decent retention and decent lacing

S: Grainy and grassy with lemon citrus and even a touch of banana and spice; this smells mostly like an American wheat but there's a touch of a German hefeweizen in there as well

T: Lemon zest up front followed by grassy grains and just a touch of banana and cloves; this is a simple yet refreshing and tasty beer--perfect for mowing the lawn, which is exactly how it came in handy just now

F: Medium body and fairly sticky which works okay

O: This is a nice little beer and like I said perfect for what it is: an easy drinking and refreshing summer beer; I think Boulder did a nice job with this one and when I want something like this again, I will return
