Shiner White Wing pours from its 12 oz. bottle to a yellow/straw color with a cloudy body, an active carbonation, and a head of foam comprised of tiny bubbles. The nose on this beer is one of coriander and wheat and the foam fizzes out in due time, leaving no lace behind.

This beer offers flavors of coriander and wheat, as expected, along with some orange and other citrus notes- mainly lemon. Some yeasty flavors and light spice close out the tasting experience on a positive note. The body of the beer is light to medium and the active carbonation adds a large degree of refreshment.

Shiner White Wine is going to replace Shiner hefeweizen, if sources are correct, and is only the second time Shiner has ever brewed a beer of this style. I find it a nice alternative to other Belgian wits and I like that it is a little less sweet than most. It offers some good refreshment and would make a good choice of beer on a hot day. Its lighter refreshment still offers enough taste and body to satisfy craft beer fans while still remaining approachable enough to satisfy the macro- brew crowd. It’s a good example of the style and one I will purchase again.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into pint glass. A: Clear, golden yellow. Some effervescence moving up the glass, a few bubbles at the top of the beer but no head and almost no lacing. S: Orange peel. Mild sweetness. I tried getting the coriander but I couldn't. Slight bit of malt. No hops. T: The taste pretty much follows the nose. Lots of orange, lots of sweetness. No hops at all. No bitterness for most of the drink. There is a very mild bitterness toward the bottom of the glass, but not much. M: Light bodied. Good carbonation. Very refreshing mouthfeel. O: This is not a bad beer, although there's not much happening with it. I would not pay for it again - especially at 8 bucks a sixer. However, if it was offered to be at a party or BBQ, I wouldn't refuse it. As a beer goes, it's rather boring. This is the first Belgian white I've ever had, so I can't rate it based on the style. If this is what the style usually is then I probably won't be a witbier drinker. I would have preferred a little hops. I think a beer needs some bitterness to make it a beer, even if it's just a little. On the other hand, as an all-around cold drink on a hot day, I certainly would not pass it up.
