Pours a cloudy, golden color. One inch head of a white color. Great retention and good lacing. Smells of wheat, yeast, citrus hops, clove, and slight pale malt. Fits the style of a Hefeweizen. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of clove, citrus, slight hops, hint of coriander, wheat, pale malt, and slight sweet malt. Overall, strong body and aroma, but weak finish, and a little cloying.

About $7 a six pack in my area, your results may vary (and be even cheaper). With its price in mind, it's an awesome beer...even if it cost more, it would still be worth it to me! Looks a cloudy honey color, really thick bubbly head that dissipates down to a thin layer of foam. Good lacing. Smell is banana and clove all the way. Taste is predominantly bubble gum for me, with banana and clove in abundance as well. Slight hint of a lemony citrus flavor. A little bit of that trademark Yuengling grain flavor (like corn) in the background. Feel is thin and watery, and missing out on the creaminess of a really good hefe. However, it is very smooth going down and finishes surprisingly crisp (there's even a hint of hop bitterness). If you're looking for an affordable and easily available hefeweizen, I recommend picking up one of these while it's in season.

Murky golden colored, with a moderate head. The nose is strong with wheat. The taste has got a nice wheat flavor. It almost also has a citrus flavor to it. This beer also holds up well to aging, since I got this beer last summer. Highly recommended summer beer if you can get it.

This beer is absolutely delicious. The smell and flavor of bananas and cloves are outstanding. The best wheat beer I've ever had. Not only that, but the mouth feel is crisp and refreshing. It also forms a nice head which is not typical of yuengling beers. It's freaking perfect.
