Clear Pale lager. On appearance it doesn't look like a wheat beer, well, at least not a traditional one.

Nose is creme de bananna with not much else, perhaps a little sour smell.

On the palate is some bananna sweetness and estery notes to confirm it is indeed a wheat beer, but not much else going on.

Is this made by AB? This can't be a Boulder Beer?!?! NO!!!

Sweaty Betty Blonde is a slightly hazy pale straw colored beer with a thin white head that disappears. It doesn't leave any lacing. There isn't much aroma; a hint of lemon and maybe banana and apple. It's pretty light bodied but soft and fluffy with a clean, bubbly finish. It tastes simple and light but well balanced and clean. Pear oil is present, but not strong. Even the bitterness seems fruity. It's tangy and refreshing.

Part of a large trade with jhammerly from Nebraska...thanks Jimi.
Pours a cloudy straw-yellow with a small white head that disappeared all too quickly.
Aroma of spicy wheat and only a tiny touch of lemon.
Taste is immediately an explosion of lemon....sweet malt at first, then swallowing to lemon juice. As the beer warms some, the lemon juice flavors change slightly to lemonade (get slightly sweeter).
Aftertaste is spicy wheat and lemon juice.
Mouthfeel could use more carbonation but it doesn't taste totally thin or flat.
Good summer cooler.

A - Light golden yellow color with thin white head. Quickly fades and leaves no lacing and very little coverage.

S - Somewhat skunky smelling lemon and wheat mixture.

T - Beer redeems itself a little with the taste. Lemons and somewhat grainy wheat taste. The citrusy lemon taste is the primary taste though.

M/D - Light to medium bodied and a little on the chewy side. Very average wheat ale.

Appearance - Pours a slightly cloudy very pale whitish/blond, with a small head that dissipates fairly quickly. Lacing is present, but minimal.

Smell - Wheat tang and strong yeastiness dominate. A very soft floral aroma comes through underneath.

Taste - Very wheaty, with a slight cereal edge at swallow. Some very mellow citrus hops help to balance things out.

Mouthfeel - Light and effervescent - nice

Drinkability - Grabbed a sixer of this because it's hot outside, and this does quench on a hot day, but like many american wheat beers, flavor is not overly complex, or exciting. At least for me...
