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: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - Light yellow in color with a 1 finger white head. Slight haze to the beer when poured into a glass. Decent lacing.

S - Got some raspberry, lemon, floral notes and some yeast.

T - Sweet raspberry, wheat and very yeasty.

M - Medium bodied with light carbonation. All of the flavors do melt together well.

O - Not a great beer but it is drinkable. A little sweet to drink more than one IMO.

Smells of raspberry, wheat, and maybe malt. The raspberry dominates the other smells.

Raspberry is the dominant but wheat and maybe malt come through in the taste also.

Mouthfeel is of very little carbonation and a little flat (which may be specific to the bottle purchased).

Overall, the raspberry taste is pleasing with the wheat which is makes it a good beer to enjoy every once in awhile.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Color was hazy yellow, almost pineapple. Looked a lot like a hefeweizen. About an inch of head. Frosty lacing on the top. Frosty sporadic film on the sides.

Smelled of raspberry right away with what also appeared to be strawberries. Nothing else really came through.

Tasted raspberry up front, but not as strong as I thought it would be considering the smell. Not much happened after the initial raspberry hit, though.

Light body. Slick texture. Lively carbonation (moderate). Smooth finish with raspberry left on the tongue.

Embarressly (that’s a new word), I liked this beer a lot more before I started rating beers. I still enjoy it as it reminds me of raspberry ice cream. Good summer beer.
