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.

2.13/5  rDev -23.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

Pours a cloudy, orange hazy color, with a weak, thin head. Some swirling brings up a bit of creamy foam, but it doesn't last. Small bits of sediment can be seen floating in there; I'd like to think they are raspberry seeds, but I am sure they are not. Aroma is powerfully sweet of artificial raspberry, but there is some noticeable wheat malts and even some small amount of spicy cloves, cinnamon? I may be being generous. Taste is pretty sweet; not overpoweringly fruity but there just isn't much to it. Has a very poor mid-palette taste, nasty rotten fruit flavor, finishes sweet like candy and IHOP raspberry syrup. Poor tastes, not impressed whatsoever. Mouthfeel is thin and hollow.

Overall, too sweet and overly fruity. Blech, no thanks.

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.

look: 3 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.5

Can: Poured a light yellow color ale with a light bubbly head with average retention. Aroma of fake raspberry syrup is quite awful with quite a bit of residual sugars. This is closer to a cooler than beer. Taste is a mix between some grainy wheat malt notes with quite a bit of residual sugar and way too much of the awful raspberry syrup. Body is light with good carbonation. I wasn’t expecting some kind of masterpiece but what a bunch of crap this beer was.
