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.

A decent compromise between quality and cost for a summer brew. Nothing special really, but not what you'd call bad either.

Best served poured into a glass with a slice of orange, the fresh citrus compliments the beer. Without the orange, though, pouring yields a mild head, with notes of citrus and coriander. Slightly cloudy in color. More sweet and refreshing than anything else, can't really even tell there's hops in it. Good for barbecues and summer get togethers.

I've seen some bad ratings for this beer but figured I'd try some after a hard days work on a hot summers day. Not a bad beer for the price. Would recommend for someone who enjoys wheat beer but is strapped for cash. Goes down smooth. Here's my review.

A-it's good with a nice orange tint and creamy head that lasts several minutes.

T- Hoppy wheat taste with some grains and a hint of malt. Some mild creamy orange as well. Tastes lingers on the tongue.

S-mild orange smell. Nothing to speak of.

M-full mouthfeel with creamy lasting taste

I'd recommend trying Mustang Wheat Beer or Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat. Boulevard is like a good thanksgiving yeast roll.

Shock top is well worth trying

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+.
