3.85/5  rDev +6.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Dark honey amber with mucky yeast cloud already showing before swirling the rest of the bottle in the glass. A big fluffy white head crowns the beer with a lacing edge and big bubble dimple top. Impressive.

Sweet banana with brown sugar, toasted wheat malts, vanilla creme, powdery yeast cake, nutty lemon cake, and marzipan. Dulled clove esters, but a lot of fruit and cream. This is one boisterous yeast strain. It smells fantastic.

Banana forward with dryness in the form of a steely wheat malt base. Bready, but not terribly big. Some peppery spice notes with a citrus twang near the finish, right before some moderate bitterness takes shape. Has a toasty finish with compounded yeast esters fighting with a robust wheat malt. A little nutty too, with more of that almond, and a powdery sugar dusting; but, not sweet. Very fresh, but revealing is its simplicity. Works very well for the style, offers character, but also reveals some shortcoming ingredient quality. Except the yeast, the yeast is top-rate.

Carbonation is a sudsy dream, but the body could be just a tad creamier. It still has that fat stream viscocity, however. Almost outstanding.

Yuengling has done an exceptional job with this summer weizen. Rising on my personal top ten chart for great value summer case purchase is this beer. Cheers, from the hefe lover!

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.

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.

Very nasty heartburn as a result of imbibing. Will never buy it again. Short and sweet, I do not like it. OK Maybe I don't like Summer wheat. Just adding words due.to minimal requirement of words in review. Much prefer their Lager I have one left in my frig anyone wants it.
