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.

Overall, a very solid beer! AB has done a good job of getting creative with the Shock Top series so far. Bought a 12 pack that had just hit the shelves, and wanted to comment right off the bat.

Off the pour, the head has a pretty good retention, it sticks around and enjoys itself. Just a light haze, with a mainly amber color

The smell has the light scent of pumpkin, cloves and I want to dig and say nutmeg with a splash of cinnamon.

Taste - Hope you enjoy drinking! A very drinkable beer, it would take a lot for me to pull away from this right now. Goes down extremely smooth.

Mouthfeel - You can definitely taste the remnants of the beer in the back. The closed mouth breath up holds the same character.

Overall, a very solid beer for the price. Not just that, it's something that could probably go for more, as it is above some of the more "complex" beers out there. Something that will be enjoyed over and over again during the fall months. Cheers.

While I'm not a big fan of the Shock Top brand of beers from Anheuser-Busch, I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by this offering. I was at the store today, and just saw this for the first time (along with 3 or 4 other Pumpkin Beer offerings already- last year I only saw 5 or 6 total, so that's a great sign). Part of me thought it may just be Jack's Pumpkin Spice, but rebranded, but I can say that this is a wheat beer with Pumpkin spices added. It's very good, and I think it would be incredible on tap.

While it's not the best pumpkin beer I've ever had, it's far from the worse. I'm such a big fan of the style, that I will definitely buy more of this in the next couple months.

I think that on my quest to find the best pumpkin brew last year I by-passed this one because it's an AB product. That was a mistake. This is clearly a great pumpkin brew in a lot of respects: color, aroma (wonderful), taste (nice, inoffensive), drinkability (you could have a whole six pack).

There aren't too many great pumpkins out there, but Charlie Brown would agree, that this is one. It may have a bit more spice than pumpkin, but it works. I will buy this a again this fall.
