I'm a sucker for a good citrus beer.

A: The beer is slightly hazy light yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles on the surface, a collar around the edge, and some lacing down the side of the glass.
S: Light aromas of orange peels are present in the nose along with some hints of wheat.
T: As in the smell, the taste has flavors of orange peels along with hints of coriander and wheat.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is a lot more orangey compared to other beers in the style. It is very easy to drink.

Easily in my top 5 favorite American beers. Perfect amount of coriander and orange with the beer flavor.

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.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a pretty good aroma of hops and wheat with a touch of citrus.
Appearance- A hazy yellow with a small white head.
Taste- This beer had a weak hop flavor that did not meet expectations.
Palate- A light bodied beer with moderate carbonation with a semi-dry finish.
Overall- The most disappointing Spoetzel beer I have tried. I am a big fan of this brewer and this beer just did meet my expectations.

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.
