Shiner Weisse N Easy Review
If you have been stalling on grabbing a can of this American Pale Wheat Ale because you’re unsure of what to expect, we have got you covered. Below, we have compiled this detailed review based on the following categories.
This beer pours a brilliant, almost translucent amber/orange color. An inch of fluffy off-white foamy head forms immediately after it is poured and sits pretty for a short moment before receding. A thin ring of lacing then latches onto the side of the glass and remains there throughout drinking.
One noticeable thing about this wheat beer is that it has moderate carbonation as particulate bubbles are present and make their way through the glass.
The brewery boasts of using Texas dewberries in the production of this beer. Hence, it is barely surprising that you’re hit with a blast of berry notes that remind you of raspberry syrup or even blackberry. In fact, these berry notes are so predominant that they render the aroma fruity.
This wheat has an aroma that brings to mind candy, and you’re almost tempted to think of it as a soda rather than a solid wheat ale. There is also a hint of malty character, although it seems subdued compared to the berry notes. However, these fruity notes are not overly cloying or overwhelming.
Surprisingly, this beer actually tastes more like beer than its aroma. The mouthfeel is crisp, clean, and smooth. It is light-bodied and slightly watery, rendering it somewhat thin on the mouthfeel. Luckily, its moderate carbonation lends the beer a fizzy feel that is slightly sticky and tingly.
There’s a subtle bitterness from the hops that can be easily overlooked. Overall, the mouthfeel is okay, but from the aroma. It can best be described as a basic taste because the flavors are just very simple. This beer leaves a crisp, mildly dry finish at the end.
This wheat beer has a predominant dewberry flavor. This fruity flavor seems to be all that there is about the flavor profile of this beer, as there are no other noticeable flavors attached to it. Nonetheless, the flavor reminds one of raspberry, blueberry, and even blackberry.
There’s also a very subtle hint of a sour lemon flavor as well as a bread-like flavor that barely registers. The beer has a nice mix of bold fruit flavors that are not overwhelming or off-putting, which is about the only interesting thing about these flavors.
– Food Pairings

You can pair this ale with fruity salad, actual fruits, cheese, sushi, and light soup. You can also pair it with Indian curries and Asian/Mexican cuisines that feature a lot of pepper and fruit flavors.
