2.98/5  rDev -13.4%

Pours a clear, golden body with a small, though dense, white head.

Aromas of soft white wheat and lemon citrus with a slight underlying note of yeast.

The tastes begins with pale, wheat malts with a tiny pop of sugared sweetness. As it warms you get some lemon-flavored candy and very minor, spicy hops and bitterness. Sip of cool, clean water.

The mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation. Hints of doughy yeast with a light wheaty finish.

Overall this is just a thin bodied, slightly sweet, something wheaty beer, with few high points, even on a warm day.

A-Pours a hazy lemon yellow with a bit of thin white head.

S-Lots of clove, some citrus and some faint sweetness. Surprising, interesting, possibly in a good way.

T-Lemony and spicy. Kind of like if you made lemonade and soaked a ham in it for a couple of days. I am not crazy about this concept.

M-Light and summery, good bubbly carbonation.

D-I think one will do just fine, thank you.

12 oz bottle poured into a Weiss glass. Jun1509. A month late. What's the worst that could happen?

A - Hazy yellow straw/gold with a white, long-lasting foamy head. Great retention but very little lacing left on the glass.

S - Rich aroma of lemon, banana, and earthy clay. Wheats and clove in the background, and thankfully, no salty sweat. Pretty true to style.

T - Wheat heavy with a lemon zest that washed away quickly with light clove, super-light banana, and a funky sourness to the finish, that, with a name like Sweaty Betty, really scared me.

M - Smooth but crisp and light. That weird thing at the end is really killing it right now. The sweaty in the name sure-as-hell isn't helping me.

D - I think I may actually pour it out in favor of something without a really funky/gross finish. I can't imagine that one month late would really create something like this in the beer. I've had older beer (4 years too old) and it was still good.

[Note: I actually put half of it in the glass back in the fridge and came back to it an hour later. It's still really gross on the finish.]

Pale yellow and a bit cloudy with a light white head. Mild prickle rising in the glass. The nose has notes that are similar to a white beer/ale as there are grape and wheat characters that I can pickup. Mild attack and clean flavor with a breaking malt finish that results in a dry and clean aftertaste. The flavor just seems to break away as it leaves the mouth. The beer causes me to think of the white ale from New South Brewing in Myrtle Beach, SC only the sweaty Betty isn't as good.
