Seems like this Beer gets a lot of Negative reviews,and as I sit here drinking my first "Shock Top Belgian white" I really do not understand why,sure there are better Belgian Witbiers out there ..but Honestly,I am enjoying this one quite a bit! and think all in all,this is a very nice Beer,very nice Indeed!Smooth,Crisp & super refreshing:)I think the sour edge may put some people off this brew,but I Myself like the tartness of it,I Never let reviews put me off trying a Beer,Because when all is said and done,we all have our own personal tastes and preferences,and a lot of Beers I enjoy quite a Bit are rated really Low here on this site,yet swill I would not let a pig drink [Steel Reserve 211] gets a very high rating by the Bros..LMAO,Really? an "88" score for Flat,rusty tasting,nasty as hell Steel Reserve malt Liquor? and Heineken gets rated as 'Poor"?~hehehe,Oh well man,to each his own I guess,just goes to show you should never take anyone elses word for something,not Mine,Not the "Bros",no ones,I enjoy reading a lot of reviews to see what other people think,but thats about it,I like to make my own mind up & draw my own conclusions,and so should you guys/Gals~Cheers & Peace2All.

473 ml can purchased from LCBO. Served cold into a pint glass.
Appearance - Very hazy light orange with yellow hues. Decent 2 finger head is poured, unfortunately the head doesn't last and within a couple minutes there's only a soapy residue on top of the beer. Can't tell much carbonation wise due to the very hazy nature o the beer.
Smell - Lots of orange with a faint whiff of lemon and lime. A few spices presumably coriander. Aroma is nice but actually pretty easy to distinguish, lacks the complexity of other witbiers.
Taste - There's some orange and coriander blend again, and some wheat in the aftertaste, but it's just a bit flat. A bit of an off putting aftertaste of mineral water blended with some spices. It's a bit flat too.
Mouthfeel - A bit flat, doesn't quite have the lively carbonation I find with many witbiers. Thin bodied and the depth and character are missing a bit too. Watery.
Overall - While this is something i would purchase at a bar with limited selection, it just seems thin and flat for the style. Passable and even good for mass-produced fare, but overall pretty mediocre.

Poured into a weizen glass. This is so ubiquitous I've wanted to try it for a while. Pours a hazy, light golden amber with a half finger white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, light citrus and a hint of Belgian yeast. Flavor is washed out orange, mild wheat and hints of coriander. Finishes with an odd light coriander, mild citrus with a hint of hops. Light bodied. Well, the looks and aroma gave me hope and I was prepared to be pleasantly surprised, but this was as expected a washed out version of the witbier style. The flavors are there, but associated with citrus that tastes like watered down orange juice or one of those old, dried oranges that have lost their bright taste. The flavor is so attenuated that the coriander tastes out of place in the finish. I would not buy this again and don't see the point of brewing it. The nice interplay of wheat and spices from witbier are missing here. Like most AB products, harmless enough to finish, but no reason to repeat.

Shock Top Belgian White brew by Anheuser-Busch. I don't like the appearance of this brew- too cloudy. This brew is not filtered. But I beleive that is how all wheat brews are. The brew pours out a cloudy amber color. Taste is good ; you can taste the wheat and the orange. Overall, I like this brew. The taste is where it's at, bold flavor and smooth going down.
