I know I've had this in a bottle at least a couple times, but this bar has nothing but Colorado beers on tap so I thought I would try this. Out really compliments the heavy hors doevers nicely.

It's mostly cloudy and yellow with a very weak head. The Tate is nice add yeasty as it should be. The overall impression is of a light to medium wheat. It is similar to the bottle and somewhat disappointing.

This beer recently took 1st place in the American Wheat category at a Brew fest in Rhode Island. Widmer Bros hefe came in second. Widmer Bros. hefe is my everyday favorite brew. So I had to give Sweaty Betty a try.... Not available in Utah I brought some home from a recent trip to AZ. This is a nice American Wheat. It has a hint of banana and clove, but not like a Bavarian style-hefe. It is more in the American wheat camp....smooth and not too spicy. It' s well worth a try if you like American wheats like Widmer, Pyramid, etc... If you're looking for a Bavarian style like Keller Weiss or any of the German wheats then it may not be spicy enough. If you're looking for a smooth American wheat with a just a hint of spice that goes down nice, then Sweaty Betty is a good choice. If it were available locally, I'd drink it regularly.
It also has a higher ABV at nearly 6 percent, but without the heavier spirit taste. You'd never know it from the taste. It goes down like a 4.8, so beware...it's smooth and w/. The higher alcohol content could pack a punch....

Poured from bottle into pint glass at buffalo wild wings in Hammond, LA. Aside from the typical Abita brew on tap, this was the extent of the craft beer selection - and this is one of two left in the cooler.
Pours a golden color with no head...it looks like the miller lite currently being consumed by the guy next to me. Very faint citrus fruity banana aroma, but mostly malt. Taste again is slight fruity malt with a hint of noble hops. Slight wheaty taste and feel. Some slight banana ish flavors. Its an ok brew, but I would never choose this over anything else...sad this is the only micro here...
I won't get again.
