Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Bitterbill on 12-04-2007

We’ve shaken up traditional tastes by brewing a spiced Belgian-style wheat ale with real orange, lemon and lime peels,and then added a little coriander spice to the mix. This uniquely-crafted and award-winning ale is unfiltered to create a brew that is naturally cloudy with a light golden color and a smooth, refreshing finish.

This beer would definitely go under the category of summer beer. It's a crisp yellow color that goes along with its' taste and smell. When you first smell it is strong with yeast and citrus. When tasted it definitely has more body and diversity with a spice flavor on top of the citrus. Overall easy to drink and would be refreshing on a hot day.

It has orange peel, lemon and coriander. While it is a Belgian White, there is no Belgian yeast strain. There is little yeast at all, as it is ingredient dominated.

On Tap. A lot of citrus, banana, wheat malt and sourness. All fruits taste artificial. Awful brew.

The color of this beer is a cloudy dark yellow. The aroma you get is a slightly fruity smell and is not overpowering. Tasting this beer you can tell it has a lot of pumpkin in it and it is pretty smooth.

A light beer with a hint of citrus. I would prefer other similar beers over this one. Overall average beer.

Served draft. Very carbonated and a lot of head. Cloudy orange and yellow. No aroma, taste has a lot of cereal grains and a hint of spice. Mouthfeel is average. Not very enjoyable.

Seems to be increasingly harder to find in a resteraunt. I prefer it from the tap. Citrus flavor with a cloudy appearance.

On tap at Portland Pie.
Hazy orange amber color with a smallish off white head. Spicy earthy with hints of orange peel. Drinkable I guess, but not something I would reach for often.

Not a huge Shock Top fan. If you want a similar beer that tastes a little better, I recommend Blue Moon. Serve it with a nice orange. Shock Top isn't bad but it has an off aftertaste to me, not very balanced.
