Raspberry Wheat delivers the same smooth taste of Shock Top, with a hint of raspberry flavor. This traditional Belgian-style wheat ale is brewed with essence of wild raspberry and hand-selected hops. It’s this combination that gives it its crisp and distinctive Shock Top taste, with its own flavorful twist. This unfiltered ale has a light-golden color and a smooth finish, and if you’re curious, it technically doesn’t, not count toward your daily fruit intake.

Nice Belgian with a hint of fruitiness but not overwhelmingly so.

Way, waaaay too sweet and fruity. They went over the top with this one. It's not bad, per se, but I wouldn't want to drink more than one at a time. Even then, there are many other raspberry beers that are far more subtle and tasty.

Tastes better than it smells.

It smells very sweet and fruity, but the taste is a little more balanced.

I'm literally drinking this as I type, and overall, it's bit of a let down. I disagree with some of the reviews citing it to be sweet- I find it rather bland. Pretty solid mouthfeel, but a complete emptiness on the palate after the initial raspberry. It's not terrible but by no means will I seek this out.

Definite raspberry on the nose and palate. Kinda sweet with a bit of coriander finish. Would be a nice summer beer for the patio but nothing special.

Surprisingly good. Not as sweet as Leinenkugel's Berry Weiss in my opinion.

Way too sweet with a tart after taste. My girlfriend wanted it so i got her some and it just didn't suit me.
