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.

On tap at their first "brewery tour" which turned into just a huge gathering of people and not much of a tour. As for the beer: hazy golden pour with a fluffy white head. Lots of spicy clove with a bit of banana/bubblegum sweetness in the nose. Flavor was the same, but it was a bit too sweet for me - a sentiment I heard from a few others as well.. Finish was a bit chewy - definitely more full bodied than some other hefes. Nice beer and probably a good flagship.

Poured from a can. Nice looking ale; full head and beautiful amber body with a lot going on inside the glass. Nice wheat flavor and a smooth taste. Good beer.

Pours cloudy blonde with a slight white head. nose is fairly weak and is mostly bread and a touch of hops. flavor is fairly thin and leans very heavily toward wheat bread and a little generic sweetness. backside is moderate and Brady. this is basically liquid bread.

Pours slightly hazy straw colored with a wealth of smooth white head. Aroma is lightly spiced with bananas and wheat. The yeast is also fairly discernible on the nose. Flavor is relatively smooth and light. The beer itself is not bad in any way but there feels like there is something lacking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught at Vancouver Craft Beer Week 2015
Cloudy dark blond color with compact head. The banana aroma and flavor is very strong, the mouthfeel is quite sweet, not much bitterness.
Nicely made.

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.
