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.

L. Hazy orange-tan with a small head, reduces to patches in no time flat.
S. Big aroma of sweet banana, butterscotchy sweet malt, light fruit like apples and pears, slight spice. Nice.
T. Tart right away, then banana, more fruity tartness, spicy clove, sweet wheat maltiness underneath it all. A hint of bitterness with your banana on the aftertaste.
F. Thinner than medium body, well carbonated.
O. Plenty of flavor and ok for the style in my opinion. Cheers!

Pours something between straw and very light copper with a generous head. Laces along the glass, smells of banana less sour than most hefeweizens. Tastes like banana with a touch of wheat. The malt really takes a backseat to the banana and the nothingness. Too light bodied, and rather plain.

hazy yellow, smell of banana and beer. Taste artificial banana and so off wheat flavor not good. After taste actually better than beer itself which isn't saying much. Didn't drink it all and wouldn't get again. This shouldn't be called beer. I don't know how everybody thinks this is so good.

Pours light and hazy with a small head. Smells very strongly of banana and wheat and tastes as smells. After taste is not very good, with the banana flavor being overpowering. If that's what you like then this is the beer for you. Went down smooth, but I just can not get over the banana taste in the end. It ruined this beer for me.
