Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Traded one of my beers for his, unfortunately.

Before I review, let it be known I do not mind what Shock Top has produced (Wheat IPA and Belgian White are both beers I do not mind). However, this beer is just not good in my opinion. The taste of the fruit and raspberry is overbearing, it made me feel like I was drinking juice that was too sugary. I would explore other beers that Shock Top has to offer, since this one is far and away the worst of what they have to offer.

Shock Top. Loved their honey crisp. Lets see what the raspberry has in store. $6.64 at wal mart.

Appearance - in bottle

Smell - Overwhelming raspberry. Disturbingly one noted. Raspberry wine cooler. Raspberry syrup. Raspberry daquiri. Just raspberry. Wheat undertones. Not sure how to score this. I could smell it all day and its a great smell but yet it has absolutely no depth or character.

Taste - the raspberry falls flat and gets lost in a sourness of the wheat and water of the the beer. Ends with the taste of raspberry seeds and a sour mash. The wheat of it is decent. Despite the overwhelmingly sweet smell it's really not what I expected. It's kinda gross to be honest. Not the worst I've had but they really could have done better here. In a nutshell? Wet, moldy, raspberry seed, and a strangely moldy wheat sour finish.

Mouthfeel - fizzy.

Overall - smell is extravagant if only one-noted (raspberry). Taste is simply gross and one of the worst beers I've ever tried. Wish I could say more positive but unfortunately, this has been a disappointment.

look: 3 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Color naranja, con cabeza que desaparece rapidamente sin dejar encaje, carbonatacion media, aroma completamente dominado por la frambuesa.

Sabor dulce, levemente citrico sin amargor pero con cierto grado de acides y dominado por el sabor frutal a frambuesa pero con un gusto artificial.

cuerpo ligero, facil de tomar y deja una sensacion acida en toda la boca.
