It's a very god and cheap summertime brew, prolly one of yuenglings better brews in my opinion. If you had this and a hefy side by side it would be really heard to tell the diff. Good job yuengling on this brew.

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a weizen glass

This beer pours surprisingly clear. I looked in the bottle to see a layer of sediment adhering to the bottom. The liquid is golden in color and topped with an inch of creamy, white head that leaves no lacing.

It has a refreshing banana and clove aroma.

The taste is banana and clove as well. It has somewhat of a dry finish.

Medium mouthfeel.

I picked up a 6 pack for $3.50. I can't complain. It was worth that price.

Pours a very hazy rich yellow color into a glass with a good head which dissipates rather quickly. The smell is definitely clove and banana. Initiial flavor is definitely overwhelmingly clove and banana as well, with a smooth banana finish. Very drinkable. Virtually no lacing to speak of. The feel is silky smooth and Overall I think that this is one of my favorite wheat brews for 2 reasons, the burst of in your face flavor and I can actually find it at some convenience stores when you can't find much else..

Bottled on 4/14/17, poured on 7/1/17
L: Hazy yellow amber. Weak head and spotty lacing.
S: Banana nut bread with a touch of all spice.
T: Matches the smell but it's not super flavorful.
F: A little too fizzy for my tastes but not horribly so. Light to medium.
O: I really wish the banana and spice were more prevalent. Had one last year and was really excited to find a 6pk but these aren't nearly as good as I remembered, but they are super cheap.

12 ounce bottle into weizen glass, bottled on 4/22/2016. Pours very hazy golden yellow/orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon, orange, banana, bubblegum, clove, white pepper, wheat, biscuit dough, light honey, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of fruity/earthy yeast and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big lemon, orange, banana, bubblegum, clove, white pepper, wheat, biscuit dough, light honey, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Minimal herbal bitterness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange, banana, bubblegum, clove, white pepper, wheat, biscuit dough, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and bready malt flavors; with a solid malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Minimal dryness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready/grainy mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a very nice hefeweizen. All around nice robustness and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and bready malt flavors; very smooth and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful for the ABV, with an impressive mouthfeel as well. A very enjoyable offering.
