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.

pours a very cloudy yellow gold with a creamy white head. Classic hefe aroma of banana and clove. Delicious taste! Lightly sweet, spicy, and a hint of bubble gum. Pleasant finish with the taste lingering in a nice way. A really good hefe!

The best American made German style wheat. It is a nice rendition of the popular German Hefeweizen made by Weinhenstephaner, Tucker, and Hofbrau. It has an excellent banana front with a clove finish. I like to see a little lighter color in a wheat beer, but this likely uses American or English wheat instead of German white.

Very good hefe Wiesen from all American brewer. Not over priced has the bannana and hint of clove taste of a lot of the German wheat beers and I lived there for 4 years and had a lot. Love yuengling brewing company as they support the constitution. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle into weizen glass, bottled on 4/22/2016. Pours very hazy golden yellow/orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon, orange, banana, bubblegum, clove, white pepper, wheat, biscuit dough, light honey, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of fruity/earthy yeast and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big lemon, orange, banana, bubblegum, clove, white pepper, wheat, biscuit dough, light honey, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Minimal herbal bitterness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange, banana, bubblegum, clove, white pepper, wheat, biscuit dough, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and bready malt flavors; with a solid malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Minimal dryness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready/grainy mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a very nice hefeweizen. All around nice robustness and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and bready malt flavors; very smooth and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful for the ABV, with an impressive mouthfeel as well. A very enjoyable offering.

bottled - aroma and flavor of banana and cloves. Cloudy yellow/golden color. A good summer beer. Deducting a point for their anti-union stance though.

JFGrind (2043) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Sent the Missus out for a case of beer for an end of summer pool party. Yuengling Summer Wheat was lady’s choice. Golden medium bodied hazy wheat. Aromas of banana, sweet citrus lemony flavors. Perfect beer for chilling in a Tommy Bahama chair on a hot afternoon.

hershiser2 (3051) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2016
Bottle from Walhole. Pours perhaps slightly darker than their lager... a light-medium amber. Baby head. Aroma of super glue fumes, grass, caramel. Flavor of light ripe banana, tiny bit of spice, not much else. It’s actually not bad, just not much to it.

NikkTwist (3191) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2016
Draft at The Irish Pol. Cloudy orange pour with white foam. Messy lace. A spoonful of Tang in a wheat beer. Navel oranges. Peach bananas. Creamsickle. Phenol nose. Just enough hops to bring in some bitterness. Somewhat juicy. Not awful but not great. Still betters many other standard Hefeweizens.
