Style: Belgian Witbier

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.

Been on a whitbeer kick lately and Shock Top was the most lackluster I’ve had so far. Wasn’t surprised to learn after the fact that it is owned by Anheuser-Busch because it taste like a Bud Light version of a whitbeer.

Excellent citrus beer that does not need a garnish

This beer is what I drink if there aren't any better choices. The slice of orange that most bars put on the glass has more taste than the beer. The beer is bland. Think of it as choosing Pizza Hut when in Italy instead of a local restaurant. You know what you're going to get. It won't be great but it won't be horrible. The next day you won't remember what you drank because it isn't memorable.

Easily worst beer I have ever had. If given the choice between this and bud light I would take the bud light any day. Rancid cilantro taste that reminds me of the smell of the juice that collects at the bottom of a restaurant dumpster or the essence of crushed stinkbug. It is not as if I am not a fan of cilantro like many are not, in fact, I love cilantro so much I will eat the leaves straight. I have a stronger than average stomach and half of one of these left me wanting to puke for an hour. Grossest tasting anything I have ever tasted, including all food I have ever had. Will likely never buy or even drink again. Spent 9 bucks on this hoping for something citrusy and refreshing like a Corona with lime, but instead, in the legendary words of Reviewbrah: "My disappointment is immeasurable, and my day is ruined."

I've had this beer draft with an orange slice and in the bottle and I think it's fairly good. I would choose Shock Top over Blue Moon. It has a really nice true orange look to it and it is very drinkable. This beer is somewhat special to me as it was the first draft beer I ever had after turning 21.
