Texas Shade

Texas Shade is a strange one.  It pours golden and slightly cloudy as you would expect a witbier to do.  The head is fizzy and short-lived.  After that, the aromas of wheat and yeast flow out first followed by a blast of citrus.  The taste packs a tart sour punch.  Texas Shade is brewed by Tupps Brewery in McKinney, Texas.

Texas Shade is very refreshing. Something you can drink all day. To me, this is a good beer.  Not a great beer, but a good one.   I see this as a good spring and summer beer.  Pair it with burgers, hot dogs, and bar-b-que. This is the beer I would serve at my summer party or at the campground hanging out with friends.

I am not sure if this is a seasonal beer from Tupps, but I noticed as I was working on this post that it is not listed on the Tupps Brewery web site anymore.  Who knows maybe I got the last few can available at my local retailer.

TUPPS Brewery is a small, independently owned craft brewery founded by Keith Lewis and Tupper Patnode in 2015. Their award-winning lineup of beers includes TUPPS IPA, Cotton Mill Gold, Pale Ale, and Texas Shade, Wheat as well as seasonal powerhouses like the Full Grown Man, which I will have a review of soon.
