COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Here at the little brewery in Shiner, weíre happy to serve up our latest anniversary brew, Shiner 102. With a special recipe that sits between a bright wheat beer and wheat wine ale, this smooth, filtered, double wheat ale pours a pale straw color with hints of sweetness. And the aromatic Czech Saaz and Washington Golding Hops and the crisp character of malted wheat are sure to refresh your senses. Prosit!

Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with white head. Raw wheat mainly on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little sweetness.

12oz bottle, from the Bellevue Cafe. Poured into a pint glass. Clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Couple bits of lace. Kind of a flavorless aroma. Some metallic, mustiness, and light pepper. Some wheat, caramel malt, orange citrus and mustly old bottle cooler mild metallic smell. After some searching, I found a date on the bottle, it seems to read 1/25/12... Iím happy for the chance to try it, but age doesnít seem to have done anything for it, and $3.50 isnít exactly a steal for such an old beer. Some moderate sweet taste, light bitterness. Medium body. Lightly slick. Light carbonation. Some bigger toffee malt mustiness. Not a great wheat beer (right now, anyway).

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - APR 13, 2014
Rated on 6-21-2011. This bottled beerís appearance is a small white head with a short retention, yellow transparent body, fast rising, fizzy carbonation observed, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is malt, wheat, hops, and sweet. The taste is sweet, semi-crisp, malt, wheat, and hops. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this is a light-medium bodied beer. Overall, the aroma is better than the flavor as the flavors just do not come together very well.

Good mellow beer with pleasant taste and bitterness. Reasonably priced for a craft beer

Lemke10 (755) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Pours a clear copper color with a thick head that gradually disappears. Scent is very strong with wheat and has scents of malts and some citrus. Taste is very wheaty almost to the point of being too wheaty. Tastes like an in-between of a wheat beer and a rye beer. Still rather tasty but not my favorite Shiner beer. Rather odd that itís a double wheat beer and yet so clear.

From notes, 5/8/11: Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a weizen glass. Over the course of my 6 pack, I discovered that an aggressive pour really helps this one. Appearance: Light golden color with moderate carbonation that seems to wake up with each drink. Some cloudiness. Nice fluffy white head accompanies aggressive pour, good white lacing that fades quickly. Aroma: Here is where this one really come up short. Wheat malts are there, hops not detected, mild adjunct in the background. Taste: Again, the aggressive pour really helps. Tastes like a "wheat-ier" hefe. Citrusy and dry finish. Palate: Crisp and on the thin side of medium-bodied. Very drinkable. Overall: Thought it was "ok" at first. But then I felt myself craving this one for a session beer. Something about that aftertaste that I canít pinpoint. Donít have a wheat wine point of reference to compare.

Slight edge at the start that goes away pretty quickly leaving a very smooth beer. Light to medium bodied. Overall a nice beer.

This beer rocks. Almost as good as the Shiner Kosmos. I used to buy this about two times a week at the convenience store across my place. Lame they no longer sell it.
