3.35/5 rDev -2.6%
Light yellow, slightly cloudy, rapidly evaporating head with bubbly carbonation that grabs the side of the pint glass. Sweet citrus and some spices on the nose, none of which improve as this beer warms up. Twangy lemon and orange offerings in the initial quaffs; the body quickly reveals touches of hops and a sweet malt based background. There are certain flashes of banana peel, cloves and hefe-like spices with just a touch of black pepper left on the palate. Borderline-medium modied, somewhat of a sugary and creamy malt finish. Nothing that will have you crying for more, but who's complaining about a simple and easy to drink wheat ale?

Lemony golden into my pint glass with a rocky crisp head that takes a few minutes to die down.
Aroma is mild, but for such a pale wheat, it's defintly a good amount of punch.
Taste is really a good punch for a light pale wheat. Nice grain and seedy flavors. Some fruity underripe bananna and an earthy spiceiness. Finish is a bit stickysweet, but overall a good mouthfeel.
A well made blonde/pale wheat. Goes dwn easy and is very enjoyable.

On tap on a whim, not the best decision, but OK I guess. Pours a pale yellow with little head. Nose is wit-beer-esque, lemony notes, a bit of spice, some wheatiness to it too. Taste follows with the same notes, but there's something off here that I can't quite put my finger on. Light and refreshing body, not a terrible beer, but probably not one I would order again.

Poured from a bottle dated enjoy by 11/26/13 into a pint glass.
Appearance - gold, almost yellow, very bubbly, fluffy white head with nice retention. Not much lacing.
Smell - sweet, lemon zest.
Taste - refreshing brew, very crisp and clean on the palate.
Feel - light, easy to keep sipping.
Overall - Hot Summer day, less than a buck 25 per beer...this is worth sharing with your lady and scoring brownie points!

pours a slightly chill-hazed, effervescent golden yellow hue reminiscent of alka-seltzer in monkey piss. A bleach-white two finger frothy head fades down leaving some respectable lacing.
aroma is better than monkey piss. bananay esters up front, clove, cinnamon, a appealing touch of barn-ish mustiness. a touch of herbal hops. fairly potent aromas might help hide a bit of off-putting funk.
taste is citrusy, and zesty up front, giving way to a bit some grass and damp hay. banana skins and mace, a touch of clove. Fairly earthy with a bit of light caramel sweetness. I keep hoping for my taste buds to find the hops, but they're subtle if there at all.
Mouthfeel is sprightly. And not really in a good way. Just a hint over acceptable carbonation, it comes across a bit fizzy and a bit too thin.
All in all, not bad. Drinkability is high and with the warm weather, Sweaty Betty is a welcome face. A funky colored face with some interesting flavors and pungent aroma, but a drinkable face none the less.

A very decent pale wheat. Appearance is golden with some head and almost no lacing. Smell is good but a bit weak with sweet malt and caramel coming through. Taste has a bit more of dry fruit on the back end but other than that prety straight forward. Mouthfeel is right on par, well carbonated and light. Drinkability is good.

Poured into a pint glass.
A: A very hazy, lemon/straw appearance. White head that forms into a nice retention.
S: The aroma of this Blonde is a perfect balance between present and not overpowering. A nice pale aroma. Very pleasing while sipped.
T: A spicy, medium body on this beer. Good wheat presence, while again with the aroma, not overpowering. Lighter on the carbonation, a easy going down beer.
M: Light and crisp, with a nice mellow lingering taste.
D: Good, perhaps too light and tasty. . . where did the beer in my glass go?!?
Notes: great for drinking after a nice long bike ride, very refreshing.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.
A-Poured a not-as-hazy-as-expected golden-straw brew. Head receded relatively quickly.
S-Wheaty and bready, minimal citrus.
T-Very similar to the aroma, strong on the wheat and bready malt flavors, with a slight semi-sweetness balanced by the wheatiness. Tastes a bit too dry feeling (this may make no sense at all...).
M-Flabby, thinnish body. Carbonation was a bit lower than expected.
D-Given the right place and time, this beer would hit the spot (though that can probably be said about just about any beer), especially on a hot summer Saturday afternoon. That said, for sitting down and enjoying a brew, this beer is of average quality and not my favorite of Boulder's lineup.

A - Straw, slight haze. Didn't stir the yeast cake up at the bottom. Maybe I should've. Fluffy off-white head, fades quickly. Very nice lacing throughout.
S - Coriander, pepper, citrus, lemon. spice.
T - Light biscuit, spice, orange.
M - Medium body. Not as light as other wheat beers. Medium carb.
O - I don't have a lot of experience with wheat beers, but this one seems to be a slightly above average.

Pours a hazy pale straw. Reminded me of Boulevards Unfiltered Wheat which I miss very much ... more for nostalgia reasons than anything else. Would likely benefit for a twirl or two when finishing the pour as there is a nice amount of sediment in the bottom of the bottle. I have some more that I will try this with.
Aroma is fruity and yeasty with sour notes...wheat beers yummy.
Taste is light, fruity and refreshing. Nothing better for beatingthe hear than a spicy-sour wheat beer.
Mouthfell is clean and light.
Very drinkable overall if you are an afficianado of this style- no doubt you will find that there are better exemplars out there, but this a passable brew for the dog days of August on the Jersey Shore.
