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.

Cloudy yellow, white head, fair lace, nose is mostly malt, start is slightly sweet, thin at the middle, finish is lightly carbonated, some hops, dry, a tad acidic. ’Average’ at best.

the color is almost right -- a cloudy yellow and slightly dim. light aroma with none of the typical yeasty character of a hefe. a bit watery. some hop in the finish of indeterminable type.

Pretty carbonated, medium head. Light golden amber color, opaque (of course). Light wheat malt aroma. The first thing I noticed about this beer’s taste was the light body. Maybe the lightest bodied hefe I’ve tried. Some lightly citric hefe flavors there, a scant amount of hop taste in the finish. This is ’hefe light’, which, in all honesty, is exactly what I was expecting. Shiner is not an adventurous brewer, and I fully understand that they must pander to a certain degree. However, I am a beer geek...I do not fit their demographic, realistically speaking. I don’t hate it, but I’ll pick 20 other wheat brews over this one.

I used to think that this was great, but it was the first hefe I’d ever had. Had to re-rate after trying Pyramid, Paulaner and Franziskaner

This one made me appreciate unfiltered beers.Serve it with a squeeze of fresh lemon and it blows a Corona (with lime of course)or a lemon flavored malt brew away.

Aubrey (3417) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 4, 2002
Sweet & soft nose. Cloudy-apricot color. Clean, rather palatable. Tingly mouthfeel with a hefty amount of carbonation... which seems to leave a bitter ’off’ flavor. Finishes bitter with some sourness. Overall, not bad, but certainly nowhere near the best. Missing that ’clover/banana/yeasty’ flavor that most hefes have... too clean and light to hold the ’Hefeweizen’ name.

Really more of an American Wheat rather than German - given its clean flavors. Cloudy yellow with thick head which faded maybe a little to quickly given style. Clean and mild aroma - flavor also clean and mild. Mild malt flavors almost zesty. Light bitterness is too much for style. No yeast flavors/effects to speak of - maybe a hint of something herbal. Slight alcohol warming in the finish was unexpected.

I guess the acidic off flavor I detected must be lemon added intentionally. I guess this is more of a witbier than a hefe. Either way, not particularly good or interesting.

Cloudy, strong citrus/lemon overtones. They advise you to enjoy with a ’generous lemon wedge’. Don’t think so. Good, but won’t be buying anytime soon

Not too bad of a hefe. If they’d lose the lemon peel flavor it’d be a lot better.
