COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Shotgun Betty is a sexy, tough cowgirl who is always armed and dangerous. Donít be fooled by her good looks, she will have you for an appetizer! Thatís why we picked her to represent our Hefeweizen. Shotgun Betty is a wheat beer with a rich, banana-clove nose and refreshing dry finish. Sound good? Try one, But beware, once Betty gets a hold of you there is no escape.

Pours a beautiful hazy golden color with a nice two finger foamy head that leaves a great lacing ...smells of yeast,cloves and banana ...taste is pure sunshine in a bottle the malts come through first then it finishes with hints of banana and cloves very easy to drink finishes clean for my favorite style of beer this one definitely hits the spot...cheers

@ Whole Foods Market / Asheville NC --- Cloudy golden amber with a lot of rising effervescence, light head cover, strings of lace. Taste is malt and wheat with an un-ripe banana and clove joining in quickly. The green banana thing continues to a fizzy bitter finish that drops off quickly. Overall, not much to enjioy.

Well this is mostly an average hefeweizen, cloudy orange appearance with strong orange and banana flavor, smooth almost full body but also some grainy texture. A little bitterness. Weak banana aroma. The distinguishing aspect of this beer is its odd dry finish, which I did not really appreciate. Almost finishes like a dry white wine. Not bad, but not flawless either IMHO. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

On tap. Honey golden pour with thin white ring. Aroma of banana, bubblegum, cloves, and grains. Taste of cloves, banana, and grains. Nice carbonation. Light and refreshing. Just a typical hefe. Nothing exciting at all.

Bottle: Thanks, Jeff! Pale, golden-yellow, super-hazy with a flimsy, wispy white head that doesnít retain for very long. Aroma is strange & kind of off-putting... Wet dog, sweaty & moldy socks, but not in the "funky Brett" kind of way. Either way, not acceptable for the style. Mildew, sulfur, yeast, lighter notes of mint, clove, & bubblegum. Taste isnít as bad as it smells but is still quite unimpressive. Astringent apple skins & lemon zest, bready yeast, & a little clove in the finish. Thin, missing the normal "chunky" body a hefeweizen should have. Steer clear of this one.

Pint on tap. Lightly hazy golden with a small ring of foam. Nose has lemon, crackers and a hint of spicy banana. Taste is lemon and wheat. Light body is balanced and has medium-high carbonation. Another not-so-great American attempt at a hefe, though Iíve had much worse.

Bottle. Pours clear gold with white head. Nose and taste of banana, clove, wheat malt, sheet metal and grain. Lighter bodied. Finishes mostly metal.

Bottle sampled at Stella Brew. Cloudy blonde pour, traditional hefe style. Wheat, mild bread, slightly sweaty and peppery. Slight vegetal cooked banana notes too. Not bad but a bit boring.
