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.

Bought a 6-pack of this brew from Schnucks Culinary in St. Louis, MO for $6.99. Poured one of the 12 FL. OZ. bottles with the Shock Top character, raspberries, and a summer time background label into a 16oz Tulip Glass. Has 11299 on the back of the bottle.

Aroma- Has a very pure and far from artificial raspberry aroma! Sweet but seems like I just picked some and about to enjoy! A nice wheat character follows this up.

Appearance- Pours a 2 finger head that dies quickly. Has a light-medium orange colored body with bit of hazy. Leaves only very few suds on the glass.

Flavor- Has the average grainy and wheat flavor but then is supported by a nice raspberry flavor. No hops are found and as simple as that, finishes off sweet and crisp.

Mouthfeel- Light Bodied, High Carbonation, Smooth, and then has a small amount of lip smacking sweetness.

Overall Impression- Where did this come from?!?! I've had both the original Shock Top and also the Pumpkin version and they were not up to par at all! This one was very nice and good all around. If this one just had a tad more body, the flavor could be more distinct but of course, I'm wishing this often with many AB products. Go for it if you have the chance!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a murky gold with a one-finger head, no lacing left on the glass.

Smell: Raspberry, light wheat, light grassy note. The raspberry smells good.

Taste: Sweet raspberries on the front with a light wheat taste following, a tad bit watery. It's good.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body and high carbonation, crisp and refreshing, easy drinker.

Overall: A tasty and refreshing raspberry beer. This is my final review for the original three Shock Tops, and I must say that I am impressed once again.
