I like it!

I was a little skeptical of another seasonal from Yuengling (I've disliked every other one) but I do keep coming back to the original as my go to "cheep" beer here on the east coast. Wheat beers are my favorite style so I figured, "why not?"

I'm glad I did. This is pretty good. Looks great, just like I'd expect from a good German wheat. The head didn't stay around long, but neither did my beer :) Both the smell and taste have a somewhat artificial sweet smell/flavor to them. It's not strong, but something seems just not quite right.

Comparison wise, I suppose this would up against blue moon or shocktop for cheep macro brew and compare well. I would easily take this over shock top any day. It doesn't have that artificial orange flavor of bluemoon, which is good, but I'm still not sure I'd prefer it every time. The 4.5% ABV is a little disappointing, although it'll feel great to enjoy a few of these after mowing the lawn. Fortunately here in VA it's at least a $1-2 / 6-pack cheeper that blue moon so that settles it. I have a new favorite cheep wheat beer!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Yuengling Summer Wheat has a thick, off-white head, an initially clear, very bubbly, orange-gold appearance, some residual lacing, and a descending, gray-brown cloud, when the bottom contents are swished and poured in. The aroma is strong, with sweet, spicy, yeasty holiday bread, banana, and cloves. There is even a bubblegum pickup. Taste is not as full, but one can detect sweet, spicy wheat bread, higher-than-average bitterness, tap water, and a shade of banana. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Yuengling Summer Wheat finishes crisp and easy drinking.

This beer is great in the summer (as advertised). It has a fruity taste and is easy to drink. It is not an outstanding beer, but I would recommend having a couple over a barbecue. This is a good beer for people who typically do not enjoy heavy or strong flavored beers. Good for a soft pallet.

3.61/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

a 12oz bottle at a friends house, poured into a glass.

Looks pretty decent, only very slight haziness, considering I dumped the entire bottle, yellow body with some orange tones, small white head which maintained quite well, good carbonation and lacing.

Aroma was actually quite strong and pleasant, wheat, bubblegum, strong yeast aroma

Taste was okay just that it petered out very quickly, no lasting or lingering on the tongue. From the aroma, I was hoping for something more flavorful.

Mouth was pretty thin.

Overall, not a bad or unpleasant beer at all. Would likely do the trick very nicely after a day working in the garden. It's just that it becomes bland rather quickly.
