One of the worst beers I've ever had. Tasted like Budweiser mixed with stale pretzels. Astonishingly bad.

This is one of my two absolute favorite beers of all time. I drink only wheats due to a sensitivity to hops so many other excellent beers I am not able to enjoy. I learned that half or less people who try this can pick up the intense pretzel aroma that I enjoy with it. As a general rule I always leaned towards darker, mid-weight, non-bitter beers before my hop issues began so this one really fits the bill. It has been hard to find just like their Amber Bock Wheat which has also not been available here on the east coast for quite some time.

This beer is unique, I typically like stouts. Nothing quite like the light pretzel taste, will miss it this season!

Poured from 12-ounce bottle into a weizen glass. Chestnut brown color, with a deep tan highlight. An extremely aggressive pour resulted in only a half-inch or so of light tan head that settled rapidly, leaving no lacing. Not much depth on the nose or palate. A little caramel, a little dark bread, overly sweet, not much carbonation, thin mouthfeel. Average at best, and a drainpour for me.

This beer is an experience. It's the perfect combo of drinking a beer and eating pretzels. It's a shame Shock Top is longer going to brew it

The pretzel addition was a refreshing twist. Hard to find (limited edition - seasonal?)

Pours a hazy brown color. Some retention in glass with a quickly-dissipating head. Smells of wheat and spices; notably a bready smell. Taste of some nuttiness, but overwhelmingly tastes just like the label says; salted sourdough. Definitely not a bad beer, but even though it blends two things that I desperately love about drinking beer, alcohol and pretzels, this beer is somewhat of a miss for me as it just doesn't have that kick that I look for. Would recommend to a friend to try!
