Brewed by:
Anheuser-Busch
Missouri, United States

Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

The smell was of spicy hobs and citrus flavors. The look was gold/orange. Overall the taste was light and refreshing. I would definitely recommend.

I have had shock top in a bottle and on-tap and it is so much more flavorful on tap.

A- pretty much what you would expect out of a "orange inspired" wheat bear. Orange in color, appearance is similar to "Blue Moon."

S- hints of citrus.

T- very smooth with an aftertaste that makes you crave more. No need to "fruit the beer," because the slice of an orange is not necessary.

D- a very drinkable beer. Smooth enough to drink several, but refined enough to save for a desert beer.

Good alternative to Blue Moon when money is a little tight.

Smells fruity and citrusy and tastes citrusy with a dash of spice. Really great anytime of the year but preferably during the summer with all the sweet tastes. Would recommend!
