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.

Poured this American Pale Wheat Ale from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. It poured a cloudy yellow color, a thick white head, retention was excellent and it left a nice amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma was very much dominated by Raspberry's, citrus and malted wheat. Light in body, this Wheat Ale had a malted wheat base, a splash of citrus (lemon), syrupy raspberry and coriander. Overall, this brew has mass produced written all over it. It is not the worst thing i have sampled from AB but it is also evident that high quality ingredients are not being used. The raspberry flavor is very much artificial. Decent attempt at intimidating a micro brew- but overall- not something I would buy another 6 pack of. Prost!
