Appearance - straw, hazy pour, little to no head formation.

Aroma - heavy on the yeast. Doughy, banana, as authentic it can be.

Taste - lots of yeast, same as the aroma. Some light sweet/sour lemon flavor, diluted and distant. The banana and yeast dominate, this reminds me of the better German wheats I've tried, very well done.

Mouthfeel - smooth, muted carbonation, on target.

Drinkability - a hidden gem, this one. For an American wheat, it can compete with some of the best German hefes out there.

This beer came a pale cloudy cider color that fades to gold near the bottom of the glass. The head consists of a wide collar of small white bubbles.

Smells of sweet honey and creamy wheat with some orange citrus. There’s also a smooth milky yeast that seems to ties this all together.

Tastes of doughy wheat and oats with an awesome, milky banana and clove presence. This is followed by a snap of citrus that helps dry the flavors out and helps this finish with a little clove and a pasty wheat.

The mouth feel is light to medium bodied and not too heavy at all.

This one’s a dead ringer for a Bavarian Weitzen. Well done!

Best Beer I have ever had, and it comes with a healthy kick too! I want MORE!! It is a spring beer that only comes around once a year, but I anticipate having this beer and beg my supplier to have it in stock for me. From the great, clean taste to the appearance and feel of this beer, it gets consistent high marks from me.

Pours golden "blonde" into a pint glass with a frothy head that stays almost completely still as I drink it.

Smell is extremely pleasant. Banana first comes to mind with a slight hint of citrus. One of the best smelling wheat's I've come across.

Taste is very similar to smell. A hint of banana up front with hoppy and lemon notes. Little bit of a clove aftertaste for me. I love this stuff.

Mouthfeel is light but still passes my test. Great for drinking several of them at a time, you'll just keep going back for more.

Overall I can say this is definitely one of my favorite beers to date. I am a huge fan of wheat beers, though. For someone looking for an incredible amount of flavor you might want something else, but for an easy drinking and delicious beer you can't beat one of these. I'd love to try it on tap at some point.

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.
