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.

Saw this and couldn't resist. Love the look and the conception of Pumpkin wheat beer. So here we go.

Appearance - in bottle.

Smell - Doesn't really smell like anything? A fresh mowed yard. A garden. For some reason I'm getting a whole summer vibe here like, when you step outside and you smell the combination of flowers, barbecue from someone in the neighborhood, and freshly mowed grass. How strange. I suppose there IS a hint of pumpkin in there, but man it's faint.

Taste - A smooth spicy beer that's heavy on coriander and spices. Pumpkin surfaces towards the end and at the very last you taste pumpkin pie. The finish is the best. Mmmm. Mild hop bitterness with the classic Shock Top sour wheat that won't go away.

Mouthfeel - Carbonated and dry.

Overall - It's okay. In every sense of the word. I wouldn't buy another 6-er of it again, but I'm sure this beer will be in my fridge for the next few months as it's very much a seasonal and mood-related beer. I'm left with the impression of a soggy pumpkin. Not appealing. Lemon Shandy and Honey Crisp still wins in the Shock Top library. No comparison.
