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!

Bottle from some guy in Texas whoís in the navy? :) Pours pale or orangey gold - depending on how itís held to the light. with a passing white head. Smells almost like honey. Flavor certainly suggests wheat with a light touch of honey. Itís not super sweet, and it is somewhat astringent, with definite bitter. But noble hop? Whereís the grass/herb? Submerged in a whole bunch of wheat malt? So itís confusing, but itís growing on me.

Bottle. Poured a clear amber color with an minimal frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate wheat and small hop aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

adnielsen (10199) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 24, 2011
Bottle @ home. Dark golden yellow appearance with an off white head. Sweet honey, wheat malty nose with that nasty macro aroma. Slightly syrupy, honey wheat, sugary, bitter macro flavor. I just canít stand that hugely produced macro taste and smell.

Dogbrick (10039) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2012
This brew pours a clear straw color with a medium thin foamy white head that evaporates quickly. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of wheat, mild spices and fruit. Light to medium body with flavors of sweet wheat. bready malt and a bit of tart fruit. The finish is short and mildly bitter with a slightly tangy hops aftertaste. Pretty average all around.

shrubber85 (9468) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Bottle. Bready malt and hay aroma. Golden yellow color with moderate head. Bready malt and lightly bitter grass hops flavor. Not bad - a straight forward wheat ale.

DrSilverworm (9108) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 6, 2014
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).
