I hated every aspect of this beer.
It smelled like girl farts and raspberries...and tasted about the same. I can't even take the time to honestly rate this beer. It is horrible...and I hate myself for drinking it. This was supposed to be a belgian style wheat, but was so far off style, I don't know what you would call it. More like a bartels and james than anything really...

Shock Top Raspberry Wheat is a perfect case of a beer that shouldn't be served to anyone who has ever tasted any other beer before. It is, to say the least, abysmal.
Why? The taste, the smell, even the appearance is saddening to senses.
A: Served with almost no head, unless you call the soda-like fizz a head. The pinkish-tinted gold is not attractive or appetizing at all.
S: Yeah, that's raspberry all right. I guess I can see how they named the beer. If there was anything else in this brew, I couldn't discern it through my nose.
T: God, have mercy on my tastebuds. There's raspberry, again, that's certain. As for wheat? I'm not convinced. Maybe AB used a hint of wheat, but if they did, it wasn't much. The raspberry is way too overpowering, and the wheat almost non-existent.
M: Fizzy. Too fizzy, it tickled my tongue like a bad soda.
O: I'll avoid this in the future. I suggest you do the same.
Serving type: on-tap
