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.

badwhale (391) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2014
Bottle to wheat beer glass. Pours a hazy yellow with a nice white head that dissipates in a moderate rate. Nice nose of grassy notes. Tastes a little hoppy bitter with similar grassy, lemon notes. Not bad.

hfmejias (952) - Dover, Delaware, USA - MAY 31, 2015
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours hazy, orange, with a small white head (no real lacing). Aroma of clove and fruit. Taste of spices, fruit and yeast combined with some wheat. Crisp, refreshing, not bad.

BadAprilia1000 (352) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Pours a hazy color more orange than yellow with a good head. Aroma is banana, clove, wheat, orange, spice. Taste is similar, sweet banana, wheat, weak citrusy orange, very weak clove compared to the nose. Very crisp and refreshing, nothing huge in any one flavor component. Good balanced beer, could session it in the summer.

drowland (6682) - Georgia, USA - MAY 23, 2015
5/23/15. 12oz bottle from Five Points. Hazy golden pour with a small off-white head. Whoa on the aroma, I didn’t realize this was a hefeweizen when I bought it... I see that now. Anyway, cream, banana, light spice, mostly banana, some butter. More butter in the flavor... I didn’t notice it so much at first but as I’ve gone through the bottle, it’s there. Lots of banana, some cream, light spice. Rough around the edges, diacetyl. Meh.

zach8270 (3802) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAY 15, 2015
(bottle - 12 oz) Hazy gold pour with a puffy white head. Big banana aroma with some very light wheat underneath it. Flavor matches. Lots of banana and wheat notes with a hint of clove at the back end. A bit watery and not much else.

Pours orange. Aroma of wheat and coriander. Taste of wheat, coriander, orange zest. I like it.

rdixon77 (1452) - Georgia, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Poured a hazy orange colored. Had all the features of a wot - orange peel, spice, wheat, but was way to papery and almost minerally. Not smooth at all. Pass.

I have been looking for this brew since college. WV Brewing Company in Huntington, WV brewed an almost exact beer in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. They closed the brewery in the 1980’s. Glad to enjoy the taste again

Backlog. Draft taster at Iron Horse. Cloudy dark copper with small white head. Banana, yeast, wheat, spice, paper. Mild. Eh.

damzz (327) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 18, 2015
Pours a hazy light orange with a white head. Nose is strong on yeast. Body is wheat creamy but not as heavy cream as some. The taste is banana with a light crispness. It is a well rounded lighter version of a wheat fitting well in the Yuengling style.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden with long lasting, foamy, white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of wheat malt, spices and bananas. Body is light and smooth. Taste is similar to aroma. Finish is long and fruity. Not bad for Yuengling.
