12 oz bottle was poured into a nonic glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a slightly hazy golden yellow with good vision of tiny bubbles coming up through out the glass.

Smell: Bready wheat, vanilla, coriander, orange peel, noble hops, and some sweetness.

Taste: Same as above. Tart when with a slight hint of bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, crisp, refreshing, chewy, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Nice witbier from the TX boys. Been enjoying the sampler pack. (536 characters)

12oz bottle into a solo cup.

A: Pretty standard golden haze, 3/4" bone white head that dies down quick with just a bit of retention. Lacing is pretty weak.

S: Mild honey-lemon. Coriander is detectable but super-subtle. Maybe a hint of cracker in there.

T: Bright & off-sweet with more pronounced cracker. Again the coriander is there but not doing much. Lemon peel with a touch of molasses on the finish. Tasty & refreshing.

M: Maybe a bit light for the style, but it seems to work with the flavors.

O: I've always had a soft spot for this brew, it's a cool take on the style & never over-reaches for anything. Prost! (634 characters)

12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.

Shiner branching out again with their rendition of a Witbier. I made sure to stir up the dregs to ensure that cloudy muddle character know in most. Subtle all around with any kind of spicing, bready wheat is very smooth and there is a mild sweetness within.

Not half bad bit nothing really pops here, nothing lively. (361 characters)

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Yellow haze in color with a thin white head. No lacing on the glass.

Smell: Light hops, cloves, and wheat.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth light bodied. Taste of wheat and cloves with mild hops.

Overall: Not a bad take on a Belgian White. (286 characters)

A better than average Belgian White. Nothing fancy but a step up from your every day Belgian Whites. (100 characters)
