COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Shiner Hefeweizen (Hef-ay-vite-zen) is a classic unfiltered Bavarian-style wheat brew. Once poured into a glass, the distinctively cloudy Shiner Hefeweizen delivers a fresh, satisfying flavor from start to finish.

Poured from a bottle. Clear golden yellow with a thick white creamy head. Lots of wheat on the nose. Nd some cooked corn. Slightly sweet. Medium bodied to thin. Decent drinking beer.

HIGHB4LL (638) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 10, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Appearance: great rocky white head, does not diminish, yellow-orange, cloudy, hazy, poor lacing. Aroma: heavy yeast, leaves, banana, mildly malty, hay. Palate: light body, thin oily texture, soft carbonation, wheat finish. Taste: medium sweetness, medium bitterness, slightly salty, very slight spice taste. Overall, not anything to rave about, though it is drinkable.

Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a hazy gold with a thin head, the aroma is a little bit of wheat and some banana, the flavor has a little bit of fruit and banana with clove but nothing crazy, pretty light mouthfeel, ugh, give me a Dancing Man to help me believe in hefe’s again.

Bottle. Body was thinner than I like. However, some notes of wheat, bread, banana. Easy to drink. Nice flavors.

ellolovey (468) - Georgia, USA - SEP 4, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy dark gold. Aroma of yeast, banana, and a bit of citrus. Taste is just like nose. Citrus rinds, orange peel, banana, and wheat. Light and watery body. Good carbonation. Definitely not memorable.

Pours a cloudy orange. Notes if lemon and some citrus. Honestly it tastes infected.

COMRADEJOSH (304) - Ft Hood, Texas, USA - JUL 4, 2013
I would say a good attempt at a hefe but not quite there. Fizzy with a hint of the banana yeast. Drinkable but not the best hefe out there.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours an extremely hazy straw color. Good head on this one - about two fingers high, white in shade, and quite creamy looking. It ultimately settles to about a finger high, and leaves a bit of lacing on the glass as well. S: The orange and lemon peel are very forward in their nature. There’s also a notable candied sugar character, along with some coriander, clove, and bubblegum. This one seems to feature a lot of witbier elements along side the usual (if muted) hefeweizen notes. T: I have no idea why Shiner wants you to put a lemon wedge in this one, because the lemon and orange notes on the opening are quite strong. Honey pops up in the finish, along with some subtle spicing. If anything, this is more witbier than hefeweizen (or even APWA) to me. M: While there’s good crispness to the body, I think it’s a bit too sweet on the finish (which seems to be commonplace in many Shiner brews). On the other hand, the lack of notable astringency helps give it a soft feel, and it seems to dry up slightly as it gets warm. O: This is pretty solid as long as you don’t expect a true hefeweizen. As a generic wheat, or as a warm-weather refresher, it’s honestly really good; it’s just not much of a ’hefewelzen’.

Bottle. P pours hazy golden yellow with a large white caddy head, good lacing. Aroma is wheat, yeast, cardboard. Flavor is the same, medium sweet, orange zesty. Lit body, high carbonation.
