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.

Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat
Anheuser-Busch, Inc.
Style: Pumpkin Ale
ABV: 5.20 %

LOOK: Pours a pale orange/gold color.

SMELL: Aroma of spices and wheat. Cinnamon, nutmeg and clove come to mind.

TASTE: In the flavor, more spice, with wheat and a note of pumpkin. Malt sweetness is there to provide just enough body to carry the pumpkin spice. A hint of bread, raw wheat and lemon peel round out the flavor profile. Body is light bodied, decently carbonated, but alittle watery.

Overall, this is an OK to below average pumpkin ale, but from anheuser-busch, surprisingly decent.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a duvel tulip.

A - A pretty rigorous pour yields almost no head. The color is cloudy orange. Lacing is minimal. There appears to be "floaties" which i would assume are somethng to do with the pumpkin flavor

S - Smells wheaty and only slightly spicy

T - Much better than the average shock top. Very biscuity up front with only a mild pumpkin spice on the finish.

M - Decently carbonated but a little too light bodied.

O - I wouldn't recommend it as a pumpkin ale, but its definitely a nice fall brew
