Poured a golden yellow with a god amount of head that lasts. Smells like a meadow full of wheat and clove with a hint of citrus. Taste is fantastic and goes down ultra smooth. One of the best belgian wheat ales I have had the chance to down.

one of Shiner's better brews, and definitely a step up from shock top and blue moon. the coriander is not overpowering which is the case with some other witbiers in my opinion. Overall solid witbier

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

Excellent. I prefer White Wing over Blue Moon for a refreshing wheat ale

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.

Pours a clear gold, with a slight effervescent bubbling that lasts well into the glass, producing less than a finger of rapidly dissipating, frothy & variously bubbled, white head that leaves no appreciable lacing. Aroma is wheat, sweet bread, coriander, Belgian yeast fruity esters of orange, banana & faint pineapple. Taste is typical for the style: wheat, pie dough, coriander, orange. The front half of the sip tastes similar to the nose being coriander heavy & sweet, fruity with the orange & banana dominant with pineapple joining in, in the latter half of the sip. Finishes disappointing bland & everything good & bad simply disappears in the dry aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, starts creamy but turns prickly, finishing a little bit slick.

Justifying rating with text in the review area. I thought this was "optional", however, since they revamped the rating system, it apparently has it's moments.
I hope this satisfies the save of my rating.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of oranges, wheat, grains. Taste is oranges, spices, malts, clean and refreshing. Feels medium-light in the mouth and overall a good thirst quencher, and a beer I could drink several of.
