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.

Patrickctenchi (3556) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle: Hazy gold with a very quick, off-white head...bubbly. Lemon polish, clove, wheat aroma. Taste has some banana, clove, wheat and orange notes. Not bad, but slightly artificial feeling and lacking zest.

Exactly what a hefeweizen should be. Cloudy yellow, slight head, big banana and clove aromas and a bubbly refreshing finish.

Bottle. Orange, banana, clove, and wheat malt aroma. Hazy golden yellow with moderate but quickly dissipating head. Sweet orange, banana, strong clove, and wheat malt flavor. Decent body. Clove heavy but not bad.

This is one of their staple beers and it didn’t really impress me. Thought it was just another Hefeweizen and didn’t really stand out.
