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.

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

Look: Hazy gold, little head.

Smell: Vaguely sweet, slight grain.

Taste: Much fuller flavor than the aroma would suggest. Wheat grain, cream, and a slight hop.

Feel: As with most Hefeweizens, it has a creamy yet refreshing mouth feel.

Overall: A solid Hefe that I would happily enjoy again.

Poured from 12oz twist off bottle (Yuengling should ditch that) into a weizen glass. Dark golden in color, lots of haze (almost turbid) with a fluffy white head that settles into a thin lacing. Typical yeasty Hefeweizen aroma with notes of clove and spice. Flavor is quite similar to aroma, pleasantly spicy from the year with more notes of banana and clove. Cleaner finish than most hefeweizens with a thinner mouthfeel than normal. Quite an excellent Hefeweizen especially for the price. Flavor is spot on and to find any faults would be nitpicking. Good stuff.

Best wheat beer for the money... And better than many, many more expensive ones. This is just a solid beer I could drink all day long.
