Pours a half finger of head on a hazy light straw body.
The aroma is a nice banana, dry grain and clove.
The taste is a mild lemon bitterness with a touch of honey sweet.
The texture is soft and fizzy.
A nice and easy drinking brew.

A: [2.50] Very clear pale yellow. The beer forms almost no head. Has an enjoy by date of 3/10/15. No listed ABV or IBUs.

S: [2.50] Grassy wet straw smell.

T: [2.75] Strong Belgian wheat flavor. Some lemon zest flavor.

M: [3.00] Carbonation is good. The body is a little thin.

O: [2.50] I really don't like the Belgian wheat flavor. The nose let me know that this was going to be not a hit for me.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, semi-opaque, golden, honey color specked with orange highlights and an eighth of a finger of white head that completely dissolved away into no head what-so-ever.

Aroma: Very aromatic with notes of toasted wheat, imparting aromas of whole-wheat crackers, and unsweetened breakfast cereal. I also get lots of notes of lemon and orange-like citrus, banana, honey, coriander, black pepper, clove, sage and thyme, as well as bubblegum.

Taste: Decent. Like a traditional wheat beer should. Toasted wheat up front, followed by honey-like sweetness, orange and lemon-like citrus, banana, clove, coriander, black pepper, and some strong wheat beer yeast.

Mouthfeel: Medium/medium-thin bodied, and very smooth, as there is no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 5.9%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: Boulder’s Sweaty Betty is a decent beer. It has the traditional flavors of a wheat beer, which is why I’m not a huge fan of it. Fans of wheat beers should really like this beer though.
