1.33/5 rDev -52.2%
Pours a fairly nice orange color, hazy, with a cream colored head.decent lace. Aroma is slight wheat, malts, spices, and the most muted, mild citrus note. Take the aroma, add an almost undetectable bitterness, and that's the taste. Carbonation is stingy. The feel is rough and jagged. I can't finish this.
Up an down the label, this is an ipa with flourishing citrus hoppiness... utter BS. I can't say I've ever tasted such misrepresentation before. Pass.

Part of a mixed 6 pack.
It pours a slightly hazy medium gold with a huge head of foam with a bit of lacing.
I smell some coriander with wheat and a bit of bitterness that I can't put into words, the usual words when describing an IPA. The look is good but the smell is not encouraging.
The taste is worse than I expected. The coriander, which I thought was a good thing in the smell, is dull, the wheat flavour is dull, the bitterness is duller than hell and in now way represents what a finely crafted Wheat IPA CAN offer my taste buds. This is a real mess and I'm dumping the rest of my glass and the rest of the bottle. Terrible beer.

bottle into shaker
A - very bubbly head that dissapates quickly, no lacing
S - fruity which was nice, but had a strange smell to it
T - real bad, strange citrus / over the top fruit flavor, no hops or malt to taste
M - overcarbonated
O - real disappointed, I think that Shock Top Belgian White is a decent wheat beer and had high hopes for this one, not a very good attempt from anheuser busch here.

Grabbed a bottle of this with minimal expectations of how it might be. The beer poured out as a decent looking hazy golden color with a nice looking white head on top. The aroma didn't give off too much in the way of hops in my opinion. The taste of the beer was honestly just not good at all to me. I found it to be weak and the hops that I was tasting were awful. The mouthfeel was smooth and moderately carbonated. Overall I just found the taste of this to be unpleasant on every level. Just a poor attempt at getting this beer off the ground I think. I'll keep this one on the shelves.
