   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 14/20
kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - FEB 26, 2010
Poured from the bottle to a hazy golden color with thin white head that dissipated quickly and left little lacing. Nose is a pleasant mix of banana fruit, cookie dough and clove spices. Unfortunately, mouthfeel is thin and waery, and the taste never does pick up on the scents of the nose. Finish a little weak and short, but not totally bad for having the word "sweaty" in the name.

drpimento (2219) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Appearance is the best thing about this beer. Poured at a good temperature with a long-lasting off-white head, lots of lace, And a clear yellow color. Aroma is fruit yeast and grain. Flavor is Lake knows plus has good carbonic tang not overly sweet, tho are not very complex. Buddy is okay but a touch on the watery side. Not a bad beer overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hopmelt (173) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Pours slightly hazy pale straw, two finger rocky head, thin lacing. Aroma wheat malt, fruity esters, noble hops. Taste rich wheat malt, slight bready, on the sweet side, fruity esters, noble hips in background. Mouthfeel medium body, high carbonation, sweet finish. Overall tasty, not great, but solid fir the style, a bit too high abv to be a session beer.

Transfer from BA review on 8-4-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance –Pours a lightly hazed golden color with a one finger head. The head fades slowly over time to give a fair amount of lacing. Smell – The aroma was heaviest of bread with lighter notes of caramel and some yeast. Mixed with this was a very light lemon citrus hop aromas as well as some banana. Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter malt taste with strong caramel and wheat tastes. As the flavor advances the sweetness fades slightly with notes of a lemon hop flavor coming to the tongue. This takes the taste to the end were it mixes with yeast and banana flavors to leave a satisfying flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeeel – The brew was on the average side in body with a medium level of carbonation. Both are fitting for the flavors but nothing spectacular. Overall –Very easy drinking, but a little subtle and boring for the most part.

b3shine (5333) - Indiana, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle to pint. Enjoy by 10/22/14. Looks solid; definitely more like a wheat ale than a blonde ale though. A hazy lemon gold with white head that steadily dissipates into thin lacing. Smells of wheat and citrus (mainly orange). A hefe presence on the nose as well. Tastes like it smells with an average, medium-bodied mouthfeel. Not bad, but forgettable. And is it a blonde ale, a wheat ale, or a hefeweizen?

Good summer wheat beer, similar to blue moon. Carbonation might be a little higher. Sweet beer and fruity. I got in a sample pack. Worth a try.

kidobutai (346) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 27, 2014
Part of a six-pack sampler at Yard House Virginia Beach. They mislabeled it "sweety Betty", so imagine my surprise! I’m liking wheat beers less and less, and this didn’t help. Sweat describes the initial flavor.

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 14, 2014
A pretty standard, nothing special summertime session beer. Lots of grass/wheat on the flavor as you might imagine. Looks like a macro with a slightly stiffer head.
