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.

From tap at Yard House in San Diego. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Light fruity and mild wheaty aroma. Flavour is light bitter and fruity wheaty. Mild acidic touch to a light bitterness into the finish. Ends with a light citric to acidic semi dry impression.

Ungstrup (29168) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2010
Draft. An unclear dark golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of malt and wheat. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and wheat combined with strong notes of lemon. Not very German in its expression.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 27, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a hazy golden with a creamy, white head. Aroma of citrus and yeast. Light-bodied with distinct accents of citrus and yeast. Dry, lightly tart finish. Sort of a hybrid between German and Belgian wheat beer as it has honey, orange and lemon added. I miss some of the sublime esters from real Hefe here. 010406

omhper (19230) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 2, 2003
Bottled. Pale mustard yellow, cloudy. Soapy, orangey aroma. Softly malty but the soapy hoppiness dominates. Refreshing, but offering nothing extra.

(Bottle) Pours a cloudy pale yellow body with an average white head. Aroma of wheat, orange, and lemon. Malty flavor with some fruit.

argo0 (11349) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 29, 2002
Unfiltered light brown with fluffy white head. Malty and spicy aroma, slight hint of cloves. Grassy flavor, slightly bitter and limited sweetness. Definitely not true to style.

bhensonb (10803) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 10, 2008
Wheat aroma backed by a hint of citrus; sort of dusty. Hazy pale golden color with a fizzy white head that left immediately. Medium body with fizzy/creamy carbonation. There are citrus tones along with wheat. It ends with a bit of citrus sour. Didn’t get banana. Didn’t get spice. That aside it’s a fairly decent drink. Heck, it’s closer to Wit than a Hefe.

brokensail (10641) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 4, 2011
A: The pour is a very pale, hazed golden color with a quickly vanishing white head. S: Smells mostly of lemon and orange with some orange peel aroma in there as well. A light grassiness and some malt sweetness, maybe a little bit of yeast. No discernible banana or spice notes. T: Sweet and grainy with some mild wheat and bread flavor. Still heavy on the citrus and citrus peel flavor. A little bit of straw and grass flavor, but still no banana/spice character. M: Light to medium in body with a medium carbonation. O: Like most Shine beers, not something that’s worth having twice.
