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.

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.

Fruity beer, that does not feel like it should be in fact a beer.

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.

Smells like orange/citrus and grassy. It is kind of heavy tasting with citrus accents.
