look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

12 ounce bottle - $1.79 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Dim, clouded orange body with a thin, whitish head.

Smell: Basic nose smelling simply of malted wheat, thin toasted edge, and hints of clove and banana.

Taste: Slightly sourish wheat malt baseboards with a lil' toasted honey for a low, overall sweetness. Faint, faint lemon, slight clove, and a smidgen of banana. All flavors drop off the palate for the neutral finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: It's doable, but not the best wheat, well wheat-anything, by far. (583 characters)

Yuengling Summer Wheat
12 oz. brown bottle

Well I have to give Yuengling credit for actually making a Bavarian style weizen instead of some lemony or basic-American wheat. I'm really impressed. Just to bring in another yeast strain is something, especially when they didn't really have to - they pretty much could have done anything they'd wanted and they'd still have seen sales increase.

As to the beer, it's a pretty decent version - without looking at the label I immediately knew what it was intended to be. I could go back and forth comparing it to other offerings (from Germany and elsewhere) but I don't think that's necessary. There are 'lighter' versions of the style available in/from Germany, and I'm referring to a range: body, color, malt content, and depth of yeast character. I would put this somewhere in there, but that's not to say it's "not to style", because it is. It's good! In fact, if it has a fault I'd say that it could have better head retention and lacing; everything else is just preference.

Overall it's a decent weizen. If it was placed side-by-side in a blind tasting against some of the better known and more popular German versions you'd clearly note a difference, but against some or the lesser known and smaller breweries you might not... and that says something! I was pleasantly surprised, and if you're a fan of the style you owe it to yourself to at least try it. (1,408 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a thin white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains bananas, wheat, light caramelized malts and touches of hops and citrus.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of wheat and a hearty but not too heavy malt character. Then some sweet flavors of bananas, caramel and citrus come in. The hops presence is very mild but brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, very mild kick, good representation of style, this is a decent lawnmower beer to pound down for a long time. (791 characters)

Poured chilled from a 12oz into a weizen glass, thanks to Stakem for sharing a bottle from his fresh case -cheers!
A - the color is dark golden with thick haze with snow white rocky head with two finger depth and average bead, but excellent lace and retention. The smell has a slight dried fruit ester from the yeast with nice wheat maltiness in the nose. The feel is fruit with moderate carbonation and light yeast spice with mostly dry finish... it could be more carbonated, but is smooth.

The flavor is not overly yeasty, yet still has a faint resemblance to a weizen with mild ripe banana essence with subtle clove spice accent and malt which comes and goes toward a slightly hoppy finish which is nice but unexpected. I guess this is a shift in the Yuengling M.O. since I can't recall a texture or taste of hops in their products, but it is welcome I would not call this a very good Hefeweizen, however it is a pretty drinkable beer so why not - cheers to Yuengling for a very drinkable wheat. (1,000 characters)

New summer brew from Yuengling done in a traditional German style...hefeweizen.

Here's their description: Yuengling® Summer Wheat is carefully brewed with a combination of wheat and barley malts. Hallertau hops and Bavarian-style top fermenting yeast deliver a thick, creamy head with overtones of banana and clove esters. This authentic German Weizen style beer, with a slight hazy appearance, concludes with a crisp finish.

I did some digging it also weighs in at 3.59% ABW or about 4.5% ABV, and about 11 IBUs. The type of beer meant for the summer time consumption. Pours a hazy amber orange hue much deep in color than some of the other popular summer time wheats available it looks more like Schneider Original Wiesse . Big creamy textured white head, fine speckled lacing left behind.

The aromatics explode with banana and clove, mild spicy notes hints of citrus peel but it's all yeast, barley, and hops to create an authentic wheat beer. What's next for Yuengling if they are able to execute a hefeweizen this well, I can't wait to see more traditional styles. Liquid bread, more fruit explosion mild spice very aromatic.

Flavor wise, fresh baked bread, spicy yeast notes more banana and clove a hint of vanilla in the backend...with bright citric wheat additions. I love everything about this brew so far. Technically they couldn't have done any better their other seasonal releases like the Oktoberfest and the Bock beer leave a lot to be desired, they're always adding the caramel coloring to their beer. This stuff tastes like all grain brewing!!!

Mouthfeel has that German feel with the effervescent carbonation pairs great with grilled chicken or brats or really anything off the girl. It makes me want to go out and grab some more and pair it with some grilled mahi mahi or tuna steaks tonight!!! Light to medium bodied all of the grain gives it great texture perfect level of acidity makes you want to gulp this one down. It goes with out saying this is bottle conditioned and unfiltered in all it's glory be sure to enjoy and swirl your bottle to get every last drop of authentic hefeweizen yeast into your glass!

Overall, I think I said it throughout this review I love this beer, some people think hefeweizen is for chicks, screw that this is man beer and it's damn drinkable and flavorful. Best part, are you ready? It retails for about 7 bucks or under, forget about the stale German imports this summer and crush as much of this stuff at the lake, at a concert, or in a boat as you can while the getting is good. (2,545 characters)

12 oz bottle with some sediment on the bottom.
Lightly hazed amber body with a decent head.
Aroma: banana, spices and yeasty dough -- about what expected for style although high on fruitiness.
Flavor: also true to style albeit on the less robust side.
High carbonation is lightly prickly and enlivens the light body. Semi-dry finish.

O: a respectable Hefeweizen from this macro-brewery. (392 characters)

A: Pours a medium to dark golden apricot in color with significant amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and some faint golden yellow + orange highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy off-white head that reduces fairly quickly to a large patch of mottled thick film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of banana + clove over the top of a slightly stronger aroma of wheat.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of banana that is followed by light to moderate flavors of wheat. There is a light amount of clove throughout. Minimal amounts of bitterness in the finish.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with just a touch more than moderate amounts of carbonation. Hints of dryness in the finish.

O: Not a great example of a hefeweizen but still a drinkable beer - I feel like it is a slightly mellowed version of the style to appear to a broader, not necessarily just craft audience. (1,057 characters)

12oz bottle poured into a matching Yuengling mug just for shits and giggles. The brew is fairly clear pale yellow in color with a white froth cap that fades leaving sudsy lace.

The smell has a hint of something like corn that fades away before a light yeasty spice of clove. There is a fresh enjoyable grain sweetness to this as well as it breathes.

The taste is pleasant with a wheat fresh grain sweetness. Yeasty clove and bubblegum notes are present into the finish.

This is light bodied and moderately carbonated. Overall a solid representation from Yuengling. Im glad to see them break the mold on this one. The price point on this is unbeatable. (654 characters)

Man, just when you think that an old dog cannot be taught new tricks, America's Oldest Brewery reaches into their bag and pulls out a hefeweizen!

I did an agitation of the beer while still in the bottle before beginning my aggro pour and I still had some lees in the bottom when finished. I got about a finger of tawny head with moderate retention from the pour. Color was a cloudy orangish-amber (SRM = > 7, < 9). Nose had the traditional bubble gum and banana esters, but the clove was really pronounced. Yay! This is usually achieved by fermenting under lager conditions, but I was assure that such was not the case. Call it serendipity, then, but I am all for it. The mouthfeel was a little thin, but it was the taste that I was really after. Sure, it evinced banana and bubble gum, but clove was the dominant flavor. I remember, as a kid, Clove Life Savers and this was quite reminiscent of them. Finish was semi-dry, refreshing and a perfect choice for a summer's day. I just wish that they would put it in CANs, but that is not forthcoming. (1,055 characters)

I poured this into a pint glass. Nice color, cloudy golden, decent head, a foamy white that did not linger.

The aroma blew me away. My favorite smelling hefeweizen by far. The banana notes are so strong, I thought I was actually in for a fruit wheat beer, specifically banana. The banana aroma is a highlight of my hefeweizen experience, so the stronger the better for me, personally. This really got my hopes up.

The banana ester do not carry into the flavor, typical of a hefeweizen. To be fair, Yuengling does not label this beer a hefe, but rather a "traditional weizen beer". I don't know about you, but I thought a traditional weizen was a here.

I really tried to like this more. I really did. The smell was so appealing, I wanted this relationship to work out. The flavor and mouthfeel were quite thin, and I was left wanting more. It is a light, refreshing beer. Not necessarily what I'm looking for.

Kudo's to Yuengling for trying something new, but thin is an experience I've had with this company more than once.

In my opinion, they are trying to keep their bread and butter customers, perhaps a more mainstream group, while stepping over the craft beer line. I'm not sure you can have it both ways. (1,215 characters)

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.

Fluffy and soapy classic head, with a bleach white appearance. Settles from three to one finger with no lacing. Body is a deep orange and rust burnt brown, with a good amount of rising carbonation. Opaque. Looks like a subdued hefe.

Classic hefe nose and large. Huge ester notes of banana, bubblegum, big phenolic spice as well. Large and dominate, but not out of control. Smells like one of the classics very impressive.

Palate matches solidly. Light bodied malt with a little bit of bready density. Some good notice of it more so on the finish. Classic spiced notes of clove and lots of banana mush in the mid palate. Fruit finish, with an almost seltzery carbonation but not quite, but certainly playful.

Quite a big surprise from Yuengling coming up with this, it's a very solid beer. (839 characters)

Pours a hazed orange color with a white head. Aroma of banana and a bit of clove, not so much Yuengling. In the taste there is the typical banana and clove elements. There is a little bit of bitterness. There is something with the flavor that makes me feel like i am tasting a Yuengling, possibly the grain bill. Whatever, it's tasty, it works and a good hefeweizen. The brew has a slightly dry finish and is quite clean. Light to medium bodied, spot on for what it is. Overall, colored me impressed. This is a pretty good hefeweizen. (534 characters)

America's largest brewery having to compete with Sam Adams(it's largest rival) for the warmer month market share.
Appears a hazy light gold with a fluffy white head that slowly fades into a gentle cap and collar. Lots of scattered lacing is left around the sides of the glass.
Smell is of lemony citrus, tart wheat, cloves, vanilla, and perhaps just a touch of banana cream.
Taste is of the aromas with refreshing, citrusy, spiced flavor that is evenly balanced in the swallow. A touch of grassy hops are there but very subdued.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, spritzy, and refreshing with a palate cleansing dryness that is spot on.
Well done beer, guys! I look forward to this one being a regular seasonal release. (713 characters)

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy rich golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of spices, banana. Taste is crisp, bananas, spices, a bit of wheat, very refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a good sessionable beer that would be great on a hot summer day. (288 characters)

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on July 5, 2014.

So, Yuengling brews beers that are beyond their standard brews.

Pale yellow pour with a big white fizzy head. Slight haze with excitable carbonation.

The aroma reminds me of a wheat clearly with its wheat malt character. Also, I pick up a vague citrus thing and toasted pale malts. Clean, crisp hops.

Light and refreshing body.

A decent enough wheat character in the taste and a clean, crisp hop finish, A slight smokiness too Basically a decent Hefeweizen and one I mighty remember. (542 characters)

12 ounce bottle, one of my friends gave me a bottle to try. Served in a Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat glass, the beer pours a cloudy golden/orange color with about an inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like cloves, bananas, and some wheat/grainy malt. It tastes like cloves, bananas, lemon peel, wheat/grainy malt, and a lingering bubblegum finish. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's smooth, refreshing and easy to drink. This was a pleasant surprise, and since the Yuengling seasonals are usually priced well in my area (usually around $6.99 a 6-pack) I'll have to buy some of this for the summer. I liked it. (672 characters)

Really wanted to try this before securing a case (It's pretty much the only way to buy this beer) Found a lone bottle at the house of 1,000 beers for a buck.

A - A twist off but very nice carbonation a 1/4 inch that sits for a bit. Color is a rather hazy copper orange color.
S - Smell is mild but impressive. Banana, clove, touch of lemon zest, and some wheat body.
T - Well it's a step above their lager. Taste of mild clove, mostly wheat with a mild banana bread body and a citrus rind peel taste.
M - Light to medium. Not very yeasty. Not bad.

Overall a lot of these reviews give this beer too much credit. Sure it has no hard water flavors and it's smooth but it's not a very well crafted Hefeweizen. (707 characters)

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a nice deeper orange-amber color with a small fizzy pure white foam head. The head fades rather quickly leaving a tiny bit of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is a wonderful mix bubblegum, yeast, banana, wheat and spice. The sweeter bubblegum and banana are the strongest of the aromas with the yeast and spice, which consists mostly of clove and coriander, coming in a close second. A lighter wheat as well as some light citrus smells are there as well, mixing with the rest to produce a very nice Hefe aroma.

Taste – The taste begins with a nice wheaty and yeasty taste mixed with some hints of a coriander and clove spice. These spice flavors, while light at first, grow stronger in nature as the taste advances. While there is not too much banana upfront, this taste grows stronger as the taste moves on to the end. A bit of orange and some light grass flavors come to the tongue more at the end as well, leaving a still somewhat more crisp (at least for a Hefe style) and rather clean wheaty and yeasty spiced flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – At only 4.5 % abv., the body of the beer is on the slightly thicker side (again for a 4.5 %’er) with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. The higher carbonation is good for the session style, making it more easy drinking. And while usually a thin body helps with session brews, the flavor profile of this one, being a Hefe with a good deal of yeast, wheat and spice, actually did a nice job with a slightly thicker body. Pretty nice overall.

Overall – This was a very easy drinking Hefe with a low abv., that is a little on the drier side for the style. This coupled with the low price of only $6.50 for a 6 pack makes this one fantastic buy. Good and flavorful +cheap + low abv = one great session brew for the summer months. (1,907 characters)

This one pours a light, clear orange, with a 1.5 inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

This one smells pretty legit- banana, clove, and some white pepper. Smells yeasty and pretty delicious.

I'm fairly impressed by how well Yuengling nailed a hefeweizen. There's some interesting peppery bitterness here, can't tell if it's from hops or the yeast, along with the requisite banana and clove flavor that just scream hefeweizen. It's really quite tasty.

This is slightly thin bodied, and just the tiniest bit watery, keeping it from being a really, really good hefeweizen. The flavors are all there, in the right ratios, though- it's just the mouthfeel that's a little lacking.

I am really impressed with this one- it's honestly one of the best US made hefeweizens I've had. (776 characters)

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy golden color, with the body having the consistency of orange juice. The head is two fingers high and white shaded. Retention is about par for the style, with nice lacing left down the glass.

S: Nice - this has a lot of banana on the nose. There are also some clove-y hints to go along with additional notes of lemon and wheat. The wheat is a little mild, but doesn't bring those annoying meaty notes I get in certain examples. For Yuengling, this nose is impressive as hell.

T: The flavor profile is closer to cloves than banana - hey, that's not a problem since I love clove-forward weizens. There's also a good noble hop character in the middle. A bright lemony snap helps to finish this beer off, with some (non-intrusive) diacetyl appearing in spurts. If this is 3.6% as Wikipedia says (then again, Wikipedia), then Yuengling just packed a lot of flavor in such a small beer. EDIT: Nope, 4.5%. Still really damn tasty regardless.

M: This is so damn dry and crisp, killing this is practically effortless. It still manages to keep a full, yeasty body; though it could stand to be less astringent on the finish. Very well carbonated. While not quite as soft as the Germans, this definitely captures the combination of substance and crushability that the old world examples pull off.

O: Holy crap. This is a legit hefeweizen. Maybe it errs ever-so-slightly towards witbier territory with its spicy/lemony tendencies, but at this price point, who cares? With one fell swoop, Yuengling just made Shock Top, Blue Moon, and SA Summer Ale look like jokes - hell, this one nuzzles up to the Germans and better US craft offerings while saying "oh, Yuengling isn't craft huh? FUCK Y'ALL! GO EAGLES!" (not included in all of this is Sierra Nevada saying "hey, we do think you're craft, its just those dick beer judges who say otherwise" and Allagash saying "fuck the Eagles, GO BILLS!!"; don't ask why Allagash likes the Bills) Now all we need is an IPA, a brett'd saison, and a barrel-aged imperial stout for Yuengling's domination of 'Murica to be complete. (2,103 characters)

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! (1,335 characters)

Had this on 2014-04-15 in Columbia, PA

A - Hazy straw-orange with a 1-finger white head that drops pretty quickly with little lace.

S - Clove, light banana, rising bread. More like a German Hefe than a light American Wheat.

T - Citrus followed quickly by clove, even lighter banana, some pepper and a pretty big sourdough malt body with a touch of hop bitterness in the finish that fades quickly. More flavor than I expected and again, more like a German Hefe.

M - Medium body and medium-high carbonation. Sprightly. Refreshing.

O - This one surprised me. It's not the most complex tasting wheat beer that I've ever had, but for the money, it's a good value. Chalk one up to Yuengling. (693 characters)

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.

a: Murky dark straw color; poured with a decent sized fluffy head.

s: Banana, clove, and light citrus are all here in good proportions. There is a little something more that is out of place. Something sweet maybe?

t: Tastes as the smell suggests it would. That little something extra is a bit more prominent, at the finish in particular. Its a faintly metallic kind of sweetness. Edit: into my second bottle now and noticing it more. Lowering scores a bit.

m: Chewy and satisfying.

o: Good enough to buy again at this price. I'll most likely spend the extra 3 bucks for Dreamweaver more often though. (604 characters)

On tap at Macado's

A- pours a hazy and murky golden-orange color with a small creamy white head that has short retention and no lacing

S- crisp wheat aroma up front with notes of banana, clove and lemon peel

T- grainy wheat with a hint of lemon and clove up front, candy-like banana sweetness with that classic bubblegum Hefe flavor, dry finish with more sweet banana on the linger

M- light-medium body with medium spritzy carbonation, foamy mouthfeel with a crisp finish

O- really liked the classic banana and bubblegum flavors, very similar and true to the style. The banana flavor actually reminds me of banana 'Runts' candy. Pleasantly surprised by this one, I could definitely see this becoming part of my summer rotation (731 characters)
