Shock Top Belgian WhiteShock Top Belgian White
Notes: Originally known as Spring Heat Spiced Wheat

We’ve shaken up traditional tastes by brewing a spiced Belgian-style wheat ale with real orange, lemon and lime peels,and then added a little coriander spice to the mix. This uniquely-crafted and award-winning ale is unfiltered to create a brew that is naturally cloudy with a light golden color and a smooth, refreshing finish.

How in samhain is this still being made? Tastes like someone poured a cup of sugar in a blue moon. Purely putrid. Cheers.

On the one hand, it’s good to see mule urine not going to waste; on the other, it’s still mule urine.

This is what happens when the giants pretend they can brew a craft beer.

Honestly, despite this being macro it does taste pretty nice, smells like nothing tho. I'd recommend this with a burger or maybe some crabcakes.

Very drinkable, quaffable beer. Nice head, deep amber/pale orange color. No note of hops nose on it. Smell is orangey. First drink was surprising - in that I was expecting a belgian yeast, but it wasn't there. Also lacking was the coriander - though it has a prominent orange juice taste. Goes down easy, clean, not much of an after taste. No discernable hop bitterness or hop citrus hit. I was missing the belgian yeast taste and at least a bit of hops nose to it. Frankly, it tastes like a generic clean ale with some orange juice added.

Certainly a good lawnmower beer, but nothing special and really an outlier of a belgian wheat.

Just average Belgium white, similar to Blue Moon. A good drinkable beer especially on hot and humid days of mowing the lawn or just working your butt off.

Why all the hate? If you're looking for a "day" beer, try it! It went down easy, didn't leave me feeling bloated and it's refreshing. I dug the citrusy (?) taste and the huge slice of orange that it came with enhanced the flavor more.

Of the big macro commercial wits out there, this is bottom of the heap. Barely passable on a summer day - do yourself a favor and get UFO or Blue Moon instead. Or just get Allagash - now in cans too haha.

Orange, hazy, lt white head, did not stay around. Brady, citrus, light on flavor. Easy drinking. Orange slice would help.

I don’t understand the hate shock top gets. I think it’s a lot better than Blue Moon. It’s unfiltered so it looks funny but I think the lemon, lime, orange is better than Blue Moon’s Valencia orange

On-tap at the local dive - review from notes

Clearish yellow with a head that lasts. Smells like orange pine-sol, not terrible but sorta chem-y. I like the taste of this, but can't have more than one at a time. Has a harsh grain alcohol element, otherwise it's easy drinking

OK for girl beer ;)

Orangeish liquid. Drank from bottle
So can’t comment on head and lacing. Smell is somewhat fruity. Orange and maybe lemon but it was a stale smelling fruitiness, not necessarily like fresh ingredients. Taste follows suit with a bit of spicy complexity. Not a bad beer. Not a good one either. It is refreshing.

This was my first time so I have to honestly wonder was this awful or expired? This had this weird yucky taste to it than wasn't like anything that a belgian white should taste like. Fortunately this was a kind of light nastiness. Idk expired or not I don't get a good vibe and this was just nasty.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy (~35% opacity), medium golden color with a medium white head. Bubbling and aggressive. SRM of 7. (4.00)

Aroma: Mild aromas. Some faint pale malts, grains, and hints of citrus. Not much here. (3.00)

Flavor: Flavor is mild too. It has mild pale malts upfront before a sour and grassy note in the middle, before some faint lemon citrus notes. Has a sour and leafy note that lingers. Only mildly sweet. Minimal yeast too. (3.25)

Feel: Medium-bodied, lower carbonation. Finishes with a slight sour note on the finish. (3.25)

Compared to Stone Dayfall 6/13/21: Pours an identical color. Milder aromas/flavors. More sour lemongrass, Less orange, orange peel, bergamot flower, and jasmine. Winner: Dayfall

to Blue Moon LightSky 7/12/21: Pours a darker color. Milder aromas/flavors. More pale/adjunct malts with a larger body. Less juicy orange.

Overall: A pretty bland beer here. Even a disappointment for knowing what I was walking into. The appearance was the best part. Minimal aromas and flavors altogether. A mild sour note is really all I detect that lingers. People on here have described this as similar to Blue Moon, but I would think that Blue Moon would drink far superior. This was bland, sour, and flavorless. (Final Rating: 3.24)
