poured a very hazy straw color with close to a two finger white head that faded to just covering the beer with a sticky lace that followed the beer down the glass. aromas of wheat and lemon grass and spice. taste, wheat malt, lemon grass, cloves and other spices with a peppery ending lingers for a bit. mouthfeel is very light and crisp and spicy. will definitely be looking for more of sweaty betty.

A: Pours a cloudy blonde. Fizzy white head with very little retention. Looks like watered down orange juice.

S: Orange, lemons, wheat, bready.

T: Wheat base with a very artificial citrus twang throughout. Not very good, just tastes metallic and over fruited.

M: Water.

O: Not a very good brew, NEXT!

The guy who sold the bottle to me gave this beer a lot of praise. Pours a cloudy witbier blond with a disappointing soda fizz for a head. Smells good, though. Cloves, banana, yeasty sweet rolls. Altogether makes for an enticing aroma. Tastes just like it smells. For my taste it badly needs more carbonation. Rather than dancing on the tongue or delivering a refreshing feel, its body feels flat and lifeless, a bad quality in a summer beer. All in all, it tastes good and is worth trying but needs that extra carbonation to give it some snap.

What an aesthetic name... poured from the bottle into a pint glass, beer is a hazy, watery golden color with almost no head. Smell is actually similar to a hefe; there is a slightly spicy, clovey, banana presence. Taste is just like the nose... much better than the appearance. Mouthfeel is pretty light in both body and carbonation. Overall very drinkable, the alcohol isn't perceivable and it goes down easily. I would recommend this beer.

3.35/5  rDev -2.6%

Poured gold with less than one finger of white, poor retention, and spotty lacing. Not much of a nose besides some modest banana and lemon. Very thin flavor profile, and raw bitter finish. Definitely missing more fruit balance. Thin bodied and decently carbonated. Nice feel for sessioning, but unfortunately not enough flavor.

Sweaty Betty pours a pale lemony yellow with a slight haze and a nice lid of very fine, tight, white fluff.

Betty smells lemony with a tangy wheaty banana-nut bread maltiness and hints of clove.

The taste has some quite tangy and lightly toasted wheat as well some lightly tart lemon and banana with a touch of clove spiciness. The medium body has a nice and chewy, soft and creamy carbonation to it.

Sweaty Betty is a nice little APWA that has a definite hefeweizen lean to it. It doesn't have my favorite characteristics of the style, but is definitely one that I will enjoy again.
