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.

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.

Not as bad as anticipated, just a rather benign wheat beer.

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

I'm generally not much of a fan of the taste of unfiltered beers I've had, with this not being an exception

Not sure what the problem is with this beer. Yeah, I know it's brewed by Anheuser-Busch but not everything they do is immediately terrible. Had this at Buffalo Wild Wings and I gotta say, this beer goes perfect with spicy food. It doesn't have any really strong flavors, and it's not bitter at all. Slightly sweet and very carbonated. It goes down almost like water. It'd be great for mowing the lawn or going out on a boat, or maybe for cookouts. I like this quite a bit.

Awful overall. The taste makes me want to vomit. It is most definitely two notches under most wheat beers on the market. It features a complicated, medicinal, chemical blend of citrus flavors. Poor look too, loses its head of foam quickly and looks flat thereafter. This beer is poor at best.

Nice color. Poor everything else. This beer wants to be Bell's Oberon and others like it but falls on its face like most Macrobrews.

essentially the same beer as Blue Moon Belgian White. Only difference is that this beer makes me sick. Idk what it is what Anheuser-Busch products but there is something they use that makes my stomach sick

I had some hopes when I opened the bottle - but they were clearly dashed.
It makes sense that this is Bud's version of a Belgian Wheat
Light, insipid, somewhat fuzzy mouth feel.
A little darker and more cloudy than a regular Bud - so they made an attempt

Slight orange flavor. Full body that can fill you up. Not at all watery. Great white ale and affordable too.

Nice beer, crisp and clean, not a whole lot of flavor, good for a hot day or to drink with spicy food, better with lemon, lime, orange wedge added to it. would buy again

They just started carrying this at the local Olive Garden. It is tasty and I like the way it looks ...cloudy with character. It's very smooth beer with a nice but minimal citrus taste.. if you like a smooth beer with some character, this is pretty good stuff. If you think your beer needs to taste like a hops covered shoe dipped in alcohol and with dirt added for color, this isn't going to cut it..

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a nice mix of citrus and grass, not overwhelming
Appearance- A murky golden yellow with a medium sized white head.
Taste- Has a nice flavor of wheat and a slight citrus backdrop
Palate- A light bodied brew with medium carbonation that has a crisp finish
Overall- Not a bad beer, middle of the road.

Great wheat beer. More suited to casual drinking with friends in the alley than with a meal.
