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.

One of my favorites! I have tried multiple hefeweizens and this is the best so far. Common wheat beer cloudiness with great smooth taste. Excellent head and how can you beat the label!

One of my favorite beers on tap. It is easily the best american made hefe on the market in South Carolina. This stuff sells so good on tap our local tap room can’t keep up with demand. Very good and unbeatable for the price.

Very nice orangy taste going down. After taste is a complete compliment to the smell and first taste.

Very citrusy aroma and flavor, mostly along the grapefruit & lemon twists, with a near-perfect proportion of malt in the mouth and hops in the finish. Quite on the positive side of this genre in that the wheat is highly prominent but not overwhelmingly "Yeasty" -- the downfall of many a hefeweizen. Other elements of this beer include an appearance that is true to the classic style, with little head (probably due to the unfilteredness) and a cloudy light-orange color showing plenty of microscopic floaties. Aroma is very refreshing, malty with just a touch of hops and fruitiness. My first beer from this outfit and perhaps my favorite American hefe ... definitely one of the best choices for a summer refresher (try it with and without a twist of lemon).

Best Shiner product EVER! I love the Shiner Bock, but the hefe is the best. Drink it because Zac said so.

Great american wheat beer. Good for hot days and doing yardwork. I have to pace myself, because these go down so smoothly, then I forget about the yardwork. Great cloudy appearance and goes great with a lemon.

Bottle. Cloudy, golden color with a fizzy white head. Smells of wheat, yeast, sweet malt, and citrus. Tastes of malt, yeast, citrus, and spice. Nice hoppy finish. Great on a hot day.

I’m admittedly biased toward unfiltered wheat brews. That said, this is a very nice one. Pours a cloudy orange yellow with nice head that dissipates qucikly. Flavor is well balanced between wheat and citrus of the lemon/orange variety. No bitterness and a nice effervesence on the tongue. Finishes with orange peel.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a Hefeweizen glass. The label has a brief description of the beer but no ABV or freshness date Appearance: It has a cloudy yellow/tan colored body with a tall three finger tall head. The head is off white in color and has a thick and creamy look that makes some nice sticky lace rings at the top of the glass. Smell: The aroma has a light yeasty/bready character with some hints of fresh citrus. Taste/Palate: Its flavor has a modest medium body with a light bready and yeasty character which is both earthy and fruity. There is a mild sweetness from the malt and a nice touch of lemon and orange citrus zest before the hops come in and add a slight bitterness and dryness. Light hop bitterness and dry yeast notes quickly fade from the tongue in the finish. Notes: The light easy drinking nature of this Hefeweizen is perfect for heat of the summer and the lemon and orange zest is a nice touch to a classic style.

Pretty good heffe. Great aroma when poured. I can really taste the lemon in this brew. I feel I don’t need to add any more lemon...it was brewed with lemon peels already.
