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.

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.

Bottle. A hazy yellow orange with a foamy white head. The aroma has a nice citrus, orange and peach glow. A sweet peach flavor.

GiddyBoy (117) - USA - DEC 24, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2004 A decent beer. Not as citrusy as many hefeweizens, which is a plus. It was decent, but nothing memorable.

An average wheat beer. A touch of lemon in there somewhere, nothing special.

RaginCajun (320) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2002
Orange-amber color with white medium head. Translucent. Smells citrusy and tastes likewise. Refreshing, but I am unable to drink more than one of these at a time.

Light golden amber color. Medium head. Slight hint of hops with mild citrus flavors. Someone mentioned "hefe-light"--I couldn’t agree more.

uhorpheus (215) - houston, Texas, USA - OCT 22, 2002
Not nearly as good as the european wheat beers, but not bad for one brewed in texas. So far the only shiner I like is the regular one.

I’d say this is the best cheap beer I can find. Obviously doesn’t stand up to the German wheats, but this one has a nice bitter flavor and makes for a good session beer.
