Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Pumpkin Wheat seasonal offering combines the smooth taste of Shock Top with the flavors of Fall. We start with a traditional Belgian-style wheat ale and then brew with ripe pumpkins and a variety of autumnal spices, including nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves, for a refreshingly smooth beer that fully captures all the flavors of fall.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

A - Poured aggressively into a shock top weizen glass. Huge foamy white head that leaves crazy lacing on the glass, especially for a wheat beer! Dark rich orange with the typical wheat beer opacity to it.

S - Some shredded wheat simplicty up front, maybe a little lemon, picking up on a pleasant pumpkin musk, with a little bit of allspice. Very refreshing scent.

T - Huge citrus notes up front, big showing from orange and lemon. Some muted wheat heaviness, a little saltine and corn flake crisp and on the way out, there's the pumpkin and some cinnamon sweetness. It's not a lot,just kind of an afterthought. Refreshing, yes. Pumpkiny, not really, but you can taste it, you just need to dig for it.

M - Very light and watery, still lots of character. Surprising light for a wheat beer.

O - Not a big fan of wheat beer, figured I'd pick it up since I do love pumpkin beers. Very nice late summer/early fall beer, a little heaviness to it, not too much pumpkin, muted fall flavors. If this had been marketed as a fall seasonal and not a pumpkin beer specifically, I never would have marked it as one, a very pleasant beer, but definitely not the kind of pumpkin beer I'm used to.
