As the great bottle purge continues here at Chez Woody, I am more aligned with the Summer season, suddenly (I seem to be on an alliterative kick lately). I am a big fan of Shiner and I am happy to have their beers available here in PA.

From the bottle: "Brewed with Coriander"; "Brewed with Orange Peel"; "A delightfully odd bird from Shiner [-] As we finish our 104th year, we are excited to take on brewing this Belgian-style white. Authentic Belgian yeast is essential to brew a true-to-style Belgian wheat ale. During the brewing process. something unique and wonderful happens when this yeast and the addition of coriander and orange peel bland to deliver the spice and citrus aroma and taste distinctive of a white ale. Barley and wheat malts and Saaz hops find the right flavor balance and the light carbonation makes this a delightful white ale. Prosit!"

I utilized an agitating pour, involving continually swirling the beer in the bottle as it was being decanted into a glass. This prevented any cascading, but it did produce two rocky, fizzy fingers of bone-white head with limited retention. Color was a slightly hazy light-yellow (SRM = 2). Nose smelled more like lemon zest than orange peel and with a black pepper spiciness. Oooh. It is already a hot, humid day, so I am hoping for something refreshing from this beer. Mouthfeel was thin, but fizzy, with loads of carbonation. The taste was kind of light for the style, but I definitely tasted the orange peel at this point. The finish was semi-dry with the coriander giving it a black pepper bite. It was, indeed, a refreshing beer, but it was lacking in taste.

Pours a hazy golden with a creamy medium white head. Aromas of citrus peel and coriander. The flavors begin with some lemon, then light bread, and finishes with some spices and a hint of bitterness to balance. Mouthfeel is decent. Overall a good witbier.
