12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Hazy golden-orange color. Creamy white head retains well at an inch in height.

S: Overripe bananas, wheaty tang, bread, vanilla, hints of clove. Actually a lot more hef character than I was expecting. Not bad.

T: chalky yeast up front. Wheaty tartness. Traces of white pepper and clove. Green banana. Doughy. Very yeasty finish.

M: Light and frothy/fluffy in the mouth. Airy, whipped sort of texture. Sharp, scrubbing effervescence.

O: Surprisingly on point. We actually have a bit of a sleeper on our hands here. It's a solid, well-made hefeweizen, especially considering its price point and availability. I would not hesitate to pick this up if I had a hankering for the style. Truthfully you're probably better off with this than gambling on one of the more renowned imports that probably suffered on the journey.

I really like wheat beers. I used to be an overly-hopped beer junky until my tastebuds rebelled. Now I really like wheat beers. Who's to say what happened? I suppose a medical consultation is in order. Anyway, I tried Yuengling's Summer Wheat and was pleasantly surprised. It tasted as good as many a German Heffeweizens I've tried. It's reasonably priced and quite satisfying. It has a very clean finish and makes me want to order another one. I've tried the bottled version only since I've not seen it on tap anywhere around here.

I find the reviews on this beer to be a little low (probably because it is brewed by Yuengling). This beer is very similar to Franziskaner hefeweizen and quite a bit cheaper. It's missing some of the nuance of Franziskaner, but it is essentially a cheap clone. My only major complaint is the ABV is a little low. On a budget and want a good wheat beer? This is it.
