I find it Amusing how some reviewers give this Beer such a Low Rating,because they start out by stating that "Fruit Beers" are not really their thing~then proceed to slag this Beer to no end,saying things like "too sweet and way too much Raspberry flavor"..Derp! what do you expect guys? Raspberries are Sweet..very Sweet,and if you brew a beer with them,the beer is most certianly going to have a sweet edge to it,I also find that there are a lot of folks who take gr8 pleasure in bashing ANY "Shock Top" Beer..Maybe because of the whole Anheuser-Busch Thing,and the fact that some people feel AB is trying to pull a fast one by Marketing Shock Top as a Small Micro Brewery and not the Gigantic Huge Company it actually is...but I really do not care about that,because to me,a Good Beer is a Good Beer,no matter if it is brewed in small batches by a few dedicated bunch of hard working individuals,or
cranked out in massive Amounts by Computer controlled mega Breweries,I Have had Fantastic and just plain Crappy brews by both systems;)
It's actually quite simple,if you enjoy Fruit Beers,and do not want to pay 15 bucks a 6er,Shock Top has some very good ones [Honey Crisp Apple wheat being my favorite] I also enjoy this Raspberry wheat a gr8 deal~what I do not understand,is why so many people who do not like Fruit beers feel the need to slag both of these brews,I Understand that these are not your traditional type brews,and some people just do not want fruit in their beer..I Get that! but perhaps if you are one of these folks who want their beer with NO Fruit,and just do not like Fruit Beers period...maybe stick to reviewing the type of beers you enjoy and not bash a brew you know right off the bat you will not like..just a thought guys;)
anyway,Shock Top Raspberry wheat is a very decent Fruit Beer,not quite as good as their Honey Crisp Apple Wheat..but still very,Very Nice Indeed! but I have to admit,the Honey Crisp Apple Wheat is just Amazing! and pretty much my favorite Fruit Beer ever~Cheers&Peace2All.

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.

2.31/5 rDev -16.9%
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.
