look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Picked up a sixer at Rodman's in DC. Looks exactly like Yuengling transformed into a wheat beer--about 2 shades lighter than the Lager, with a big white head that laces in tiers. Nose is to the biscuit malt and spice ends of things, but definitely some banana, pineapple and clove in there too. Taste follows suit, big and malty with some clove, banana and a nice hit of spice. Crisp and pleasantly skunky (probably signature Yuengling yeast) on the end.

In short, it's basically exactly what you would think a Yuengling wheat beer would be, and in no way is that a bad thing. I already wish they would make it all year.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours to a generous permanent white head and hazy orange-gold color. Aroma is bubblegum, banana and cloves. Flavor is overwhelmingly bubble gum with some clove and pale malt and wheat coming through. Mouthfeel is light and easy. Overall, a bit challenging ester-wise but good nonetheless.

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

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.
