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 (38384) - 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. Travlr (26070) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 9, 2011
Bottle. Hazy golden color, small white head. Aroma of lemonade. Taste is bitter lemonade. No. omhper (25740) - 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. Papsoe (25056) - 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

Cloudy, orange colour. In fact it looks a bit like orange juice. Can’t say I picked up much in the way of banana, vanilla, wheat, spices or anything else very enticing. I see it’s down as an American Wheat, not a hefeweizen (despite the name), so, as I’ve not tried too many American Wheats, perhaps that’s the style. There’s nothing objectionable about this beer - it’s crisp, slightly citric and reasonably clean. It would probably make an acceptable summer quaffer, and I’m all in favour of beers for that purpose that aren’t pale lagers. It’s just not very interesting. On tap at the Green leafe cafe, Williamsburg.

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. bhensonb (15753) - 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. djd07 (15543) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Bottle. Pours a cloudy pale golden color with a small white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is a spicy orange and light hops. The taste is a sweet orange and a light clove aftertaste. A decent wheat ale and easy to drink from Shiner. Ratman197 (15354) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Bottle poured a cloudy yellow with a large lasting white head. Aromas of wheat, yeast and lemon. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of wheat, yeast and mild lemon with crisp sweet finish.
