I've found that drinking ST from the bottle and following the directions on the bottle on how to pour into a glass makes a big difference. Especially if you add a slice of orange to the glass. Still a fairly weak macrobrew, but better than your typical Bud or Miller swill.

Well, it could be that my palate has been unduly influenced by the very hoppy ales I've been drinking. I found this Belgian White to be almost devoid of any flavor at all. I don't think I'd be able to tell much of a difference between this and one of the mainstream lagers.
I don't find anything exactly bad about it. It's kind of refreshing in the way sparkling water is refreshing, though with a bit of flavor one would likely identify as "beery." If there are spices, they were used most sparingly.
I've had MUCH worse beers than this - some so bad that I had to pour them down the drain. This beer is disappointing as a "white ale," but definitely NOT drain pour. I wouldn't spend money on it, but it it's hot or very warm out and it's offered to me, I will gladly take it simply as a thirst quencher.

Shock Top taste great UNLESS you do not read the bottle. With this beer it is important that you pour the beer into a mug except for about an inch of beer in the bottle. At this point you need to swish around the beer in the bottom of the bottle to get the sediment out and dump into your glass. You will have a much better tasting beer. I also recommend squeezing a slice of orange into the beer for a more citrus flavor.
