OK....To be Honest and Fair,I am somewhat of a big time fan of "Yuengling's" beers overall,their Bock may be a bit left of center and has a bit of a Grapefruit note...which is VERY Strange for a "Bock" Beer,..but I Like it just the same..[in a weird way]
But In my Humble Opinion,Yuengling Summer Wheat [Weizen Beer] is WORLD CLASS,and just Amazing in every way,notes of very strong Banana,Vanilla Cream,and citrus,
I smelled the Beer for almost 5 minutes,just savoring these wonderful smells..and the Taste follows the nose ..this Beer is nothing short of Stellar, top notch and MUST be tried if you are a fan of the style...
I Think this is THE Highest score i Have gave on this site [BA] However Yuengling Summer Wheat deserves it in every way shape and form..A PERFECT Weizen Beer....just simply Amazing..WOW!!!

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: lightly cloudy, sunny golden, dinner roll hue... tall 2" stand of foam on the pour that settles down into a constant cap cover, collar clinging to the glass... very little lace

S: pretty damn spot on and inviting... mashed banana, delicate clove, doughy yeast... potent intensity of aromas - way better than most domestic attempts at the style... comes close to the smell of a Paulaner

T: very little bubblegum, if any... once again, yeasty-doughy wheat kernels... smooth, low bitterness of mellow citrus pith, mild clove essence, hint of sweet roll and wheat malt in the aftertaste... decidedly German nuances

M: ideal, light-medium, glucan-y/wheaty roundness up front... washes back clean, lightly grainy... beautiful

O: WTF?! wow! they need to put this out every year - maybe all year even?... this is fantastic! arguably a Paulaner clone... nice job, Yuengling! can't wait to have it again... now, fix your bock

Few beers inspire an immediate review from me anymore. If I take full notes, it's usually a note I place in my phone and post later. Oddly enough, Yuengling's play at a "Summer Wheat" inspired me to immediately review it. Fair notice, I have a soft spot for the metallic "Yuengling flavor."

Pour from a 12 oz into a Samuel Smith's tulip pint. If I would have known I'd actually enjoy this I would have had two and poured it in a Hefeweizen glass...

Appearance: Quite hazy, typical of the style, perhaps a shade more orange than I'd expect an American "Summer Wheat" Hefeweizen to be. Not too far though, and the white head with slight lacing is appropriate. Surprised.

Scent: Heavily of yeast, coriander and banana. This is actually a surprisingly strong scent. No real hops evident, same with the actual beer.

Taste: This is pretty much what I want from an American brand hefeweizen that advertises itself as a "Summer Wheat." I have had far worse on-style beers, and/or year round examples. This is the first of the sort-of new Yuengling seasonals I've loved.

Mouth: Considering it advertises itself as a "Summer Wheat" and not a Hefeweizen, it is close enough between an American lawnmower beer and the actual style.

Overall: Positively emphasized due to surprise and value. Try it. Please. Yuengling, year-round it.
