3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
While this beer has some inadequacies such as character, body and depth, it does have the basic characteristic of being very drinkable. Decent lacing but quickly dissipates to a cloudy golden liquid. Aroma does have influences of bubble gum and cloves similar to a nice German hefe. Overall an average brew, but certainly not bad.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a thin white head. Aroma of banana, cloves and wheat. Flavor follows the aroma with a touch of spice and had a clean finish.

Their best offering, IMO. A good take on a wheat. Definitely superior to Blue Moon, Shock Top and the like, and that’s the category I see this in. A cheap American try at a German or Belgian beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a hazy dark orange with a negligible head. Really no lacing at all and no head retention. A bit of a shame considering what I was expecting for the style.
Aroma is loaded with banana and bubblegum as I would expect but there is a little bit of a "wet dog" off-note. Yeastyness and a bit of grass make up the remainder.
The flavor doesn’t really have anything wrong with it but it is a bit mild all-around. Good banana and yeast notes with a touch of light caramel and some hay/grass. Bitterness is very light, just enough to balance out the malt, and the finish is quite dry. Soft mouthfeel that is appropriate for the style.
Overall, not a bad hefeweizen for the price but it is far from outstanding. A good thirst-quencher but not mind-blowing.

Drank from the bottle. Aroma is wheat, banana, and bubble gum. Taste is citrus, wheat, and grass. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Nothing special

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle at Philadelphia Airport. A slightly hazy pale amber pour with a thin white head; expected Hefeweizen aroma of yeast, wheat and banana; a grainy body with a pleasant banan taste; and a clean, crisp finish. Lacking the spiceness of some German examples, but very drinkable.

Bottle. Pours golden orange with a white head. Fruity and yeasty, with light spicy notes, moderate sweetness, and a quick yeasty finish. Not bad.

(Bottle). Appearance is classic hazy golden complexion with thick fluffy head. Lots of glass lacing. Flavor is a light wheat with banana and some mild clove. Pretty well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Actually not that bad, has a faint wheat aroma. Taste is a nice bit of citrus with some good wheat, decent enough.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy yellow with thinning white head. Mostly banana in the aroma, and sweet. Perhaps nostalgia makes me really appreciate this more than I might otherwise but then again, maybe not. America’s oldest brewery, PA local, plus this really is a nice surprise in a mostly authentic Yuengling way. This is a beer Yuengling should be especially proud to bring to the market.
