Shiner White Wing Belgian White
If your brewery makes it for 104 years, I'll check out your new beers! That's what I am doing today with Shiner White Wing Belgian White. This is a Belgian-Style Wheat Ale brewed with coriander and orange peel. The label depicts a bird perched on a person's index finger. On the rear, the story explains that this beer is "a delightfully odd bird from Shiner." I guess they just mean it's not their typical style. 4.7% alcohol.
Wheat, orange, and faint coriander aroma--very subdued! Sweet orange flavors, nice fruitiness with some honey as well. The texture is excellent, very creamy. Enjoyably spiced with coriander, not overdone at all. There are also some peppery nips that show through and hit the palate. Nice, tangy finish. Good body. Enjoyable and flavorful! Definitely check it out.
