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.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Hazy straw colored body, a fizzy white head that actually doesn't recede as quickly as I expected. Just a few dots of lacing, if that.

Aroma: An immediate metallic note, then raspberry syrup.

Taste: Not a lot going on other than raspberry fruitiness, some tart in the finish. Very sweet, syrupy.

Mouthfeel: Pretty sticky, syrupy.

Overall: Like the other flavored wheat beers I've had from this "brewery" this is too syrupy, too sweet, and doesn't taste like it's brewed with natural ingredients. Even the bottle states "Raspberry flavor added." Not real raspberries, just the "flavor" ...

My girlfriend wanted it, I think it wasted some space in my cooler. Very strong "raspberry" flavor, not bad if you like that. Reminded me of Leinie's berry Weiss

Served at around 5C in a slightly oversized Belgium glass.
Appearance: Golden colour and very slightly cloudy. Thin white head.
Smell: Raspberry and that's about it.
Taste: Moderate, tasty, and lingering raspberry flavour. Some wheat can be detected, but not much. Definitely on the sweet side and no bite on the finish. Very drinkable and almost anybody would be able to finish a glass.
Body: Light-bodied.
Overall: Nothing complex and not at the top of its style, but it makes for a good summer beer that is drinkable for pretty much everybody.
