COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hallertau hops and Bavarian-style top-fermenting yeast deliver a thick, creamy head with overtones of banana and clove esters. This authentic German weizen style beer, with a slight hazy appearance, concludes with a crisp finish.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark gold body under a one inch fizzy white head that faded quickly to a thin ring. The nose is pretty nice, lots and lots of fruity esters in here, bubble gum, a bit of spicy clove, and a little yeastiness. The flavor is better than expected as well. A touch thin maybe and lacking in a certain roundness due to the lack of yeastiness, but itís very solid for Yuengling. Lighter bodied with soft gentle carbonation. Nice effort, this oneís for real.

An OK beer. More tart than a traditional hefe, but thatís not really a bad thing. Aroma was yeast, clove and wheat. Pour was a hazy medium gold with a thin white ring for a head. Taste was OK. Tart and wheaty with a slightly acidic flavor. Mild clove flavor. Not much of the banana flavor associated with the style. Medium carbonation. In my opinion, American brewers have not been able to nail this style yet.

Hangover (1092) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Slightly cloudy orangish pour with a thin white head. Aroma is banana and light citrus. Creamy body. Lemon, banana and yeast flavors up front. A little bit of bubblegum towards the middle. Lingering wheat past the finish. Pretty darn good for a commercial brewery.

Bottle @ Bus. Thanks, John. Hazed golden pour with a big white head. Slight cardboard and lemon, but a lot of bready malt and a touch of clove. Some grass and cotton candy. Flavor is fairly sweet and bready on the front end. Good amount of banana as well. Sort of bitter and tart on the finish, however. Lots of grass and lemon peel. Mild clove spiciness. Kind of watery.

Bottle, thanks for sharing! Pours a cloudy light gold with a white head that lasts through the beer. Aroma has lots of sweet grains with a hint of light fruit and clove. Flavor is similar, sweet grain and wheat with light spice.

Bottle generously gifted to me by jcwattsrugger (aka cheersjohn) on my way out of the hotel on Sunday, thanks John!
Pours a hazy orange with a decent sized head and some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is spicy, sweet, & clove forward. Fruity but not all together banana like.

The flavor is awfully sweet, I mean it hits a lot of marks for a Hefeweizen no doubt, itís very spicy & has a nice banana character. The bubblegum character is extrodinarilly heavy here and really tends to dominate any more subtle or pleasant flavors.

The beer sits remarkably heavy on the palate and doesnít display the sort of liveliness that this style needs to carry the sweeter fruit and clove notes happily across the tongue.

I am surprised at how true to style they were with this one though.

This is cloudy orange with a head of fine white bubbles. It actually smells pretty nice: a touch of banana with some earthy and floral notes. It has creamy texture with vigorous carbonation. It is sweet enough that it cloys even in a small sized sample. While that does bring out the fruitiness, it gets sticky and gross pretty fast.
