You beer snobs are friggin idiots. Sweaty Betty is one of the top beers out there. I have lived in Europe (Belgium, home of real beer) and South America, and lived throughout the U.S. trying hundreds of local beers over the past 25+ years. Sweaty Betty, going on taste alone (which is all that 99.999% of "real" people care about), is #4 in my book: behind only Fat Tire, Leffe, and Maredsous (99.999% of you canít even pronounce Maredsous, you jackasses).

I am not sure why other people are having a problem with this beer, it is great. It is not you typical Wheat beer. It is an unfiltered wheat beer, meaning that you pour 3/4 of the beer into a glass swirl the remaining portion in the bottle and then pour that into the glass as well. This stirs up the yeast and introduces a whole nother flavor profile. And for all of those who rated this beer and didnít swirl the yeast are missing out on some great flavors. This is by far one of the better wheat beers I have tasted and would drink this all day long in the summer.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2005 Hazy Yellow
Fresh citrusy bright aroma with several notes of fruits especially lemons, green apples, honey dew and banana.
Fresh, subtle, solid and refreshing wheat beer. An americanized hefeweizen with the usual banana, clove and nutmeg flavors but also some hints of lemon, ripe pear and apple.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A- Cloudy, opaque pale yellow body with a healthy creamy white head. Leaves behing plenty of lacing in the glass.
S- Citrus and spice immediately hit the nose followed by hints of wheat and yeast.
T- Citrus upfront with spice and wheat in the background. Finish is smooth and refreshing. Yeast lingers in the back of the palate until the next sip.
P- medium carbonation and yeasty body. Goes down easy and very smoothly.
O- This is very drinkable and is a great representation of the wheat beer style. The wheat and yeast can be tasted, seen, and felt but are accented with citrus and some spices.
Serving type: on-tap

Bought this beer in a 6-pack from Smoke Land in a Samuel Adams Pint class.
A: Yellow color with thick cloud
S: Fruit with a hefeweizen smell.
T: Tastes like a blue moon with an orange or even a hefeweizen.
You can taste the blonde in it and definitely the fruit. Very Sweet.
M: Light Bodied, awesome flow through palate and mouth
D: A mix between a Hefeweizen and a Blue Moon. Awesome beer! Easy for a new beer drinker or a party beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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. Thereís 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 oneís a dead ringer for a Bavarian Weitzen. Well done!

The 12 ounce bottle poured a slightly hazy light yellow beverage with an average sized fizzy white head that was mostly diminishing and left some lacing on the glass. Tastes slightly of bananas and clove, Very easy to down a few, very drinkable

My Sweaty Betty poured a beautiful pale gold color, with a small but lasting head and lacing. The aroma was wheat, hay, and light citrus-floral. A nice all around taste combining a sweet wheat type taste with a mild floral yeast and banana undertone. It was medium bodied and perfectly carbed.
This was an excellent wheat beer, I would recommend it to anyone new to wheats as the flavor was not overly citrus like a lot of wheats. Nice job Boulder Brewing Co.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into St Bernardus chalice.
Pours a yellow straw with bubbly head.
Aroma of honey, amber malts, straw hops, bread dough.
Modest carbonation and mouthfeel.
Flavors of light malts, sweet malts, honey, straw hops, floral hops, light banana, citrus, spices. Overall tasty and easy to drink for an American blonde wheat.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Iím going to do this one in two parts since my glass is to small for the whole bomber to go into,so it without yeast first and with yeast poured in second.
Nice clear straw color,small white head that faded quickly leaving little behind.The aroma was wheaty with a slight cerealish quality coming through a little fruit hint like maybe a mild citrus.The flavor is a mild wheat with some bannana and spice,somewhat sweet at first then a change to a cerealish flavor and a slight hop presence.Finishing up fairly clean with a mild bannana after taste.Sofar not bad,now for part two.
Oh yeah now theres what iím looking for.Cloudy straw color,the head stays much the same as before,with the aroma coming on just a bit stronger with a little more bannana and citrus.The flavor also comes on just a bit stronger in the fruit arena and an addition of a slight yeasty character but nothing more that would really add to the brews over all rating,just strengthens whats itís going to get.A very nice brew over all and well worth getting a few more due to itís easy drinkability and over all summer appeal.
