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.

Bottle - pour is a hazy orange yellow. Aroma is heavy yeast, wheat and spices. Flavor is LOTS of clove, some banana and yeast. I have lots of hefs, but this one kinda bored me. A lot of people love this here in NC but I wasn't blown away. -optemoz

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.

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 (10145) - 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.

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.
