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.

Shock Top Raspberry Wheat has a thick, creamy, cream-colored head and a hazy (which gets more-so when one swishes the bottom of the bottle), bubbly appearance. The aroma is of raspberry and light grain. Taste is very strong with the raspberry flavoring, and one also gets bread, orange, and sweetness. There is really no bitterness here. The mouthfeel is medium and a bit soft, and Shock Top Raspberry Wheat finishes crisp and refreshing. Drinkability is astronomical. Interestingly, as I drank it down, I did start to notice the alcohol coming through a bit. This is one of the better flavored beers that I’ve tried.

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a hazy amber color with a medium white head. The head faded relatively fast leaving only a small amount of lacing.

Smell – The aroma was a mix of wheat and raspberry. The raspberry was the more overpowering of the two and created an overall very sweet smell.

Taste – The taste was as would be expected from the nose. It started out with notes of wheat and a lighter raspberry flavor. As the flavor advanced however the raspberry took over and dominated the taste, leaving a sweet berry flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was on the light to average side with a carbonation level that was very middle of the ground.

Overall – A sweet brew with a good dose of raspberry flavor. It you want an affordable berry flavored beer this would be one to take on.
