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.

The hands-down best Pumpkin Wheat this season! Finishes smooth and leaves a warm pumpkin pie taste in your mouth. Be sure when pouring to leave about an inch at the bottom and stir the bottle to bring out the unfiltered wheat. Wonderful! I bought a case and am rationing it out keeping it all season long. Best with turkey or large banquet style Holiday meals! Enjoy!

I don't care who makes this beer. If it is a good beer I am going drink it.

Color: it is a golden amber look to it.

Smell: you can smell the pumpkin and nutnegg.

Taste and mouthfeel: I love how you can taste everthing. It is very drinkable. Nice and smooth and well balance. I don't know if this is a wheat pumpkin. I can't really taste the wheat.

This ia a beer to get into crafts and pumpkin ales. Cheers!

I love wheat beer, all kinds of it but this pumpkin spice is a very good product. Although Jack's Pumpkin Spice Ale was better this has not been a complete disappointment. I have tried several pumpkin beers & ales & there are some very good ones out there.

This is one of the more enjoyable pumpkin beers I have had the chance to try. It does not immediately overwhelm the senses with the powerful aroma or taste of what it is going for, yet still retains the feeling as if October is getting closer with every sip.
