Pours golden with a slightly amber cast against a slight haze. Very nice head and lacing retention is good. Very good nose of banana, clove and bubblegum. Light medium body with a smooth texture. Normal carbonation, with a touch of effervescence on the finish. Quite nice flavor profile that is well balanced with typical Weizen complexity. Banana leads then flows into a slight clove spiciness over a light biscuit. The finish is crisp and leaves you with a lingering banana/clove aftertaste over a hint of hops. While not as intense as Allagash White, for the price point, this one is world class. Great job Yuengling and congrats on the Gold.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Hazy golden-orange color. Creamy white head retains well at an inch in height.

S: Overripe bananas, wheaty tang, bread, vanilla, hints of clove. Actually a lot more hef character than I was expecting. Not bad.

T: chalky yeast up front. Wheaty tartness. Traces of white pepper and clove. Green banana. Doughy. Very yeasty finish.

M: Light and frothy/fluffy in the mouth. Airy, whipped sort of texture. Sharp, scrubbing effervescence.

O: Surprisingly on point. We actually have a bit of a sleeper on our hands here. It's a solid, well-made hefeweizen, especially considering its price point and availability. I would not hesitate to pick this up if I had a hankering for the style. Truthfully you're probably better off with this than gambling on one of the more renowned imports that probably suffered on the journey.

I really like wheat beers. I used to be an overly-hopped beer junky until my tastebuds rebelled. Now I really like wheat beers. Who's to say what happened? I suppose a medical consultation is in order. Anyway, I tried Yuengling's Summer Wheat and was pleasantly surprised. It tasted as good as many a German Heffeweizens I've tried. It's reasonably priced and quite satisfying. It has a very clean finish and makes me want to order another one. I've tried the bottled version only since I've not seen it on tap anywhere around here.
