Shock Top Belgian White has a medium, white, creamy head, and a cloudy, yellow-orange appearance, with lots of streaming bubbles and essentially no lacing. The aroma is of orange soda, water, and grain husks, and the taste is of white bread, a trace of citrus (which shows up better on the tongue as citric acid), some bitterness from the peels, and water. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Shock Top Belgian White finishes semi dry, easy drinking, and fairly refreshing. Overall, it’s only average.

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half-finger high white head that gradually died down and left some lacing covering the surface.
S: Aromas of citrus—oranges in particular—stand out in the nose, which also has some notes of wheat.
T: Similar to the smell, citrusy flavors stand out in the taste along with some wheat. There are hints of sweetness. The taste seems a bit maltier compared to other witbiers.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite easy to drink but could be a lot better if it cut back on some of the malty and sweet flavors.
Serving type: on-tap
