Shiner White Wing has a pretty thick, fluffy, white head, an initially clear, yellow-gold appearance, which displays a descending gray-yellow cloud, once the bottom contents are swished and poured in, lots of rapid bubble streams, and a good amount of lacing left on the glass. The aroma and flavor are just as the company describes- bready, with a hint of orange peel and coriander. No banana or bubble gum with this one. Mouthfeel is medium and soft, and Shiner White Wing finishes dry, refreshing, and very easy going. Overall, for a subtle, mellow witbier, this one if interesting and worth sampling.

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.
