Pours a cloudy orange. Notes if lemon and some citrus. Honestly it tastes infected. LilBeerDoctor (3957) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2013
On tap. Pours a cloudy yellow orange with a thin white head. Aroma of bready malt, light spices. Flavor of bready malt, light malt, sweet fruit. Decent hefe, pretty simple, sweet.

I would say a good attempt at a hefe but not quite there. Fizzy with a hint of the banana yeast. Drinkable but not the best hefe out there. ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - JUN 30, 2013
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours an extremely hazy straw color. Good head on this one - about two fingers high, white in shade, and quite creamy looking. It ultimately settles to about a finger high, and leaves a bit of lacing on the glass as well.
S: The orange and lemon peel are very forward in their nature. There’s also a notable candied sugar character, along with some coriander, clove, and bubblegum. This one seems to feature a lot of witbier elements along side the usual (if muted) hefeweizen notes.
T: I have no idea why Shiner wants you to put a lemon wedge in this one, because the lemon and orange notes on the opening are quite strong. Honey pops up in the finish, along with some subtle spicing. If anything, this is more witbier than hefeweizen (or even APWA) to me.
M: While there’s good crispness to the body, I think it’s a bit too sweet on the finish (which seems to be commonplace in many Shiner brews). On the other hand, the lack of notable astringency helps give it a soft feel, and it seems to dry up slightly as it gets warm.
O: This is pretty solid as long as you don’t expect a true hefeweizen. As a generic wheat, or as a warm-weather refresher, it’s honestly really good; it’s just not much of a ’hefewelzen’.

Bottle. P pours hazy golden yellow with a large white caddy head, good lacing. Aroma is wheat, yeast, cardboard. Flavor is the same, medium sweet, orange zesty. Lit body, high carbonation.

Im not a wheat beer fan, but if I want a hefeweizen, this would be my go-to beer.

Has a very sweet fruity and wheat taste and smell. It had a half a finger head with lacing. It represents the style well. One of my go to beers when I want a hefe barncatmatt (2286) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2013
355ml bottle from a publix in Kissimmee Florida. Hazed golden with a lasting white head. Wheaty citrus aroma. The flavour is similar. A lightly fruity off dry wheat ale. Not a classic hefe but not a bad beer. I’d have this again. FLVC2 #16 blklab2007 (2120) - Connecticut, USA - APR 20, 2013
Bottle from a mixed six pack. Pour has a lightly clouded bright golden color and a covering of white head that stuck around a while. Aroma has banana yeast, wheat, and some grainy bitterness. Mouth feel is medium light and the carbonation medium low. Flavor has bitter wheat, yeast, and grass.
