BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Anheuser-Busch
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.

Appearance: Lighter thick orangey color.

Scent: Pumpkin, orange, and cinnamon.

Mouth feel: Crisp, smooth, and refreshing.

Taste: Shock Top is known for its orange kick. This particular brew kept that tradition while adding a pumpkin twist to the mix. Being 5.2% alcohol by volume, below the average for Belgian beers, this brew is not as flavorful as you might expect. Pumpkin Wheat is wheat ale brewed with ripe pumpkins, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves which is hard to taste because of the overwhelming orange flavor.

Overall: I would recommend this brew for Shock Top lovers, but not for someone looking for that “pumpkin spice” seasonal beers tend to deliver. I think a 2 out of 5 is more than generous since we all felt the same way about

Exceptionally unimpressive. I don't know how people like it.
