Shock Top Belgian WhiteShock Top Belgian White

Brewed by:
Missouri, United States

Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Even though this isn't an actual craft beer, I think they did a decent job with it, certainly as good as Coors did with Blue Moon.

Although the real reason I bought it is because Ft Sam has it for $12.50 a case and I couldn't pass up a deal like that. Keep it cold and it's a great beer for a 105 degree day here in south Texas. I wouldn't pay much more than that for it, but when it's cheaper than Pabst . . .

Purchased in a 500mL can from the Lcbo and poured into a hoegaarden glass

A - Murky orange, with almost no head. No lacing present whatsoever.

S - Not a very pleasant smell for a wit, smells like orange and some sort of metal (steel or iron maybe)

T - Flavour isn't that awful, but is very underwhelming for a belgian wit styled beer. The orange as the logo is really what this beer is about, the orange flavour dominates the beer.

M - very little carbonation, nothing particularly interesting about the mouthfeel

O - A pretty poor attempt by Anheuser-Busch at creating a Belgian Wit macro brew. Although that being said it's really not that bad, it's very drinkable, it just doesn't really match the style well. I will give it to Anheuser-Busch though that this is better then the Canadian macro-brewed failed attempts at a Witbeer by Rickards and Alexander Keiths
