Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

funky looking label admittedly drew me to this beer. I should have noted the union made print and where it was brewed. Like 7 different cities.

Had a decent look about it. Slightly cloudy with a bright apricot colour. Really fizzy head that disappeared as fast as the groundhog did this February.

I felt i needed to find one little bright spot. The aroma did conjure up some faint citrus fruit and faint spiciness

Again=t faint flavours struggling to overcome what i found to be a nasty astringent taste.

Very, very weak and watery mouthfeel. especially after it sat for a few minutes. Went almost flat in fact.

It almost seems like they took Alexander Keith's White and tried to make it look like Rickard's white. Absolute crap. Save your money....

I know Shocktop tries to market themselves as a craft beer and catches a lot of flack from the many beer critics for it... But it's really not a bad beer.

The beer pours a cloudy light orange color with an admitably weak head but for what it lacks in head and lacing it makes up for in a light citrus smell. The orange and lemon flavor was light and refreshing with an appropriate amount of carbonation.

Overall this is no craft beer but would make an excellent summer beer for working out in the yard or hitting a few balls around the golf course.
