I liked their Honey Wheat better. This is yellow-orange with little scent. Very sweet honey flavors, but no banana-clove worthy of the HefeWeizen name. A sweet cousin. OK.

looks pretty nice.....hazy golden with a foamy white head...even leaves behind a little lacing. not much in the aroma and there is a slight banana flavor..other than that, dont expect much out of this one.

Probably Shiner's best beer. Wheat and citrus, no banana or clove. Appropriately carbonated, easy-drinking, cloudy. Nice label. I was surprised by this, but it comes no where near the finesse of the Bavarians.

Have you ever had a beer that made you wish you'd had 3 or 4 before it to dull your tastebuds? Exactly. They make a point on the bottle of saying that the cloudy nature "is good" and to "pour into a glass." Which is good. I think for some, this might be the first beer that has any texture whatsoever. For me, the best thing was the face.

Not brilliant as as a hefeweizen, but not bad as a beer. Little head, though nice cloudy golden appearance. Early flavors of caramel-covered apples, and later more fruitiness, though some alcohol pops through the flavor later as well.

It has a nice simple American wheat taste that does not contain the "clove" tastes of the true German wheat beers such as Paulaner or Franziskaner.

Great local buy. Different from German Wheats but well worth having in the refrigerator. Actually enjoyed it more than Paulaner Hefe.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2003 Interesting and widely available Hefeweizen where I live. Cloudy orange appearance with very fruity flavor. Tastes a little too sour to me sometimes but overall worth trying.

Lightly cloudy with a sour yeasty aroma. Medium bodied with a sour bite and a light fizziness. Basically average for its style. Pretty drinkable.
