COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Shotgun Betty is a sexy, tough cowgirl who is always armed and dangerous. Don’t be fooled by her good looks, she will have you for an appetizer! That’s 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.

Honestly I had to have this in the can cuz I'm on vacation and didn't have the proper glasswear. It great on this hot summer day and a nice change from all the ipa's I've had recently. - Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

True to style Hefeweizen was very good. Heavy clove nose and the ripe bananas dominated the taste. Looked good too. At the mellow mushroom.

On tap at VCBW Festival, pours a cloudy yellow with a medium white head. Nose brings cloves, light banana and some citrus. Flavour is similar, with citrus notes, wheat, and light banana. Clean and drinkable. Nice balanced and somewhat authentic. Decent.

Can opened at home, post-RATXV. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with large white head. Aroma is wet dog, banana and clove. Taste is sweet banana candy, stale malt, skunked a little it seems.

adnielsen (10037) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle @ home, thanks to jcnielsen for sending! Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow appearance with a thin tan head. The aroma is fairly spicy (pepper, nutmeg, clove), and moderately fruity (lemon, banana, pear). Fairly high carbonation. A little goopy and somewhat overly sweet. Spritzy, banana, lemon flavor. Ehh.

ordybill (602) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - APR 19, 2015
Poured from the tap at the Biergarten in Charleston, SC into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a strong banana aroma with some yeast, very appealing (pun intended) Appearance- A murky amber with a small off-white head. Taste- An interesting hefeweizen flavor, i really dig the banana. Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Overall- This is the second beer that I have had from this brewer and I need to take note. Both have been very strong, great flavor.

tightslice (385) - Redwood City, California, USA - APR 18, 2015
Can from Whole Foods Market in GA. Aroma is citrus, light banana, some spiced wheat/rye bread. Taste is pretty much the same... Very light and breezy which I really enjoyed. Not too sweet or floral, nice drying finish. Not a big Hefe fan but a fan of this one.
