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.

One of the last Summer beer that I will try for this year.
The look of the beer is like the 1664 blanc or the Hoegaarden. You won't notice that is a Raspberry Beer...
Until you smell it. The smell is a definitely Raspberry,, and that's all about.
Now the taste. Well like the Lemon Shandy, it's all about the Raspberry flavour. But the lemon Shandy is about a touch of sour than the Raspberry is about that sweet touch. You won't really notice the taste of the wheat beer, it's more on the sweet side. On the finish it's not dry at all and the raspberry stay and don t give any space to the Belgium Wheat.
Overall, this is a great summer beer. That's why like the Lemon Shandy I will give a 3/5.
So would I recommend it ? Sure, this is different than those lime lemon high sugar beer thats on the market. And I think this is great beer for women too. For myself I wouldn't buy it all year long but during summer a pack of 12, once or twice, I will definitely go for it.

Shock Top Raspberry Wheat is a surprisingly crisp, refreshing, and modestly-flavored wheat beer that could've easily been an insufferably sweet/tart brew. The brew fittingly compliments Belgian White and Honeycrisp Apple has pleasantly different options from mainstream breweries, and, again, bests Blue Moon.

Pours a bright red with an off white head that fizzes away quickly. The smell is all raspberry with little to no hop or wheat. The taste was similar with a very sugary finish. The mouthfeel was also off, too thick for a wheat in my opinion. I can understand why it's popular, it's just not for me.
