12 oz bottle served in a snifter.

A - apricot-gold in color, like apple juice, with a short-lived small head. Some sediment at the bottom of the bottle.

S - The nose is a rather with a quality more like an adjunct lagr than, say, a typical German Hefeweizen or replica thereof, such as the Baltika 8 that followed this beer. 2.75

T: Despite the claim to be a Hefeweizen, this is like a cross of that style with an Amer. lager. 2.75

M - Medium-light body; Somewhat low carbonation.

O - Not bad, certainly, but not true to style (o deduction for that in this review) and rather bland and low in flavor.

Another great product from shiner, very smooth finish and refreshing crisp finish. Best served cold and by following the serving directions on the back, this insures you get the best flavor through whole finish of the beer. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys lighter beers with a more citrus flavor.
