last batch review(Schwheat (wheat))

Appear: 3.5/5.
Mouthfeel: 3.5/5
Carb/Head: 3/5
Taste: 2.5/5
Overall: 3/5

An overall decent beer but it has too much of a banana character, I think it's because of fermenting at too high of a temp. Tasted better as it aged, but far from perfect.

I still can't find my goddamn copy, and there's a recipe I'm doing this weekend in there... grr, the damn office is a mess, I know it's in there somewhere (SWMBO took it out of the bathroom where it belongs).

I love you guys, and am learning lots, but the thing I can't figure out is ....
SWMBO

I know it is a reference to the wife, but I can't get it, so please explain.
