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.

Onionkid (361) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - APR 19, 2013
Bottle. Aroma of bland malts and an unclear sweet smell. Tastes bland, has an unsavory sweetness to it with an overall taste of crap wheat and has a funky sour note to the end of it. As Iím drinking it, I donít want to say itís awful, but then when you break it down it sort of is. Weíll call it greater than the sum of its parts, and just say itís better than Miller Lite and be done, k? 5.28% alcohol.

Darwenus (529) - Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2013
A cloudy, lemon yellow body with a thin, soapy head. The aroma is really subtle. There is a little citrus and hops, not much else. The flavor is fairly weak. Thereís a bit of pungent hops in the middle of the sip and a little citrus in the close, but not a lot else. This beer is not among Shinerís best and not a great example of the style.

tbopslt (343) - New York, USA - APR 14, 2013
Hazy, straw yellow. Grassy aroma with a lemon - pepper taste. Pretty sharp for a Hefe but not bad.

ajnepple (1995) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2013
12 oz bottle poured into my Funkwerks glass. Golden-orange and cloudy with one finger of spotty white foam. The aroma is sweet and fruity with orange peel, wheat malts and yeast. Pretty light body with a crisp feel. Yeasty, fruity, sweet flavor with a dry bitter finish. Kind of refreshing, but pretty bland overall.

No bottling information.
Appearance: The body leans a bit orange with pale straw on the edges with a very cloudy appearance. The white head is tall and fluffy with decent retention, it settles into a thin coating with a creamy ring.
Aroma: This is a tart aroma, sort of like hair gel actually. Citrus is strong here with a touch of banana. Iím not huge on this.
Taste: The flavor is a touch sweet with citrus and the wheat lending a mild flavor until the finish which reminds me of orange juice. The orange juice isnít overwhelming, but itís prominent and a tad tart.
Palate: Creamy and full bodied with lively carbonation.
Overall: This is sort of good, but the aroma is odd and smells like LA Looks hair gel at times. Too much citrus for me and not enough yeast presence. This isnít bad, especially for the price, but I wouldnít buy it again.

Bricktop86 (551) - Moore, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 4, 2013

trapped (715) - New York City, TURKEY - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with small whitish foamy head, fresh citrus aroma, fizzy carbonation, slightly bitter citrus flavour, long finish with a bite. Has more bite than a regular hefeweizen.

Lemke10 (752) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Pours a pale yellow color with a decent head on it as you take in the slight scent of wheat. The taste is very mellow and smooth which makes for some very easy drinking. Something that would go well in the summer for those hot days.
