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 at all a bad beer - significantly better than Miller's Blue Moon and seems to play similar instruments as some craft beer in terms of experimentation with flavors and variations on the brand. The pour reveals a very foggy, hazy yellow/orange color, the smell is rather neutral, with possible hints of orange, and the taste's only flaw is that it's heavily carbonated, much like cheap domestic offerings, which throws the beer off quite a bit. Other than that, the taste is definitely good, with its subtle citrus undertones and wheaty texture. Between this and Goose Island 312, I can tell I'm digging wheat beers far more than any other type. The mouthfeel is good, but thrown off because of the strong carbonation at hand.

Shock Top Belgian White is something I could definitely drink on a regular basis. Definitely richer and deeper than the bland offerings by the same brewer.

From 06/07/14 notes. Have had this a few times, finally reviewing it. 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

a - Pours a hazy yellow-amber color with one inch of bright white head and moderate to high carbonation.

s - Smells of oranges, wheat, bready malts, sweet fruity malts, corn, grains, and wheat. Not too bad, oranges are there. Very sweet smelling.

t - Taste is similar to the nose but blander. Lots of grains, bready malts, wheat, with some light oranges, light fruity malts, citrus and floral notes to it. Step down from the nose.

m - Medium body and high carbonation. Not as light a body as I was expecting and overcarbonated.

o - Overall not a terrible beer; not great and pretty average, but not offensive at all. Light oranges and citrus in the nose, with less in the taste. Nothing to seek out but not the worst you can do.

I was unaware of it being an Anheuser Bush product when i saw it on sale.

Appearance- slightly darker than straw yellow lots of carbonation white head not much lace

Smell- adjunct sweet smell not bad just corn sugary maybe with some orange

taste - not great but okay a wheat orange a bit too sweet.

mouth feel- clean lots of carbonation a summer beer serve cold

Overall- its not as bad as some of the reviews on here say i don't know if i would buy again
but at this price point and for the style C+.

Pour out of a twist top 12 ounce bottle into a tall glass

Pours orange with a foamy off white head

Belgian yeast smell up front not much else

Watery, some orange fresca taste

Well carbonated

So far off from the style. Not even close. Fresca fermented with Belgian yeast isn't a wit beer. Sorry AB.
