BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Anheuser-Busch
Missouri, United States
anheuser-busch.com

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Raspberry Wheat delivers the same smooth taste of Shock Top, with a hint of raspberry flavor. This traditional Belgian-style wheat ale is brewed with essence of wild raspberry and hand-selected hops. It’s this combination that gives it its crisp and distinctive Shock Top taste, with its own flavorful twist. This unfiltered ale has a light-golden color and a smooth finish, and if you’re curious, it technically doesn’t, not count toward your daily fruit intake.

Nothing surprising about this beer. The wheat mixed with raspberry is tasted right away. It's a typical of Shock Top beers, which I'll drink anytime I'm in the mood for a fruit/vegetable beer

Shock Top Raspberry Wheat - Anheuser-Busch. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, this beer's head is one finger thick and off-white, with solid lacing, and a hazy golden body.

I definitely smell the raspberries, that's about it.

Tastes like, you've guessed it raspberries. Not too sweet, but its close enough. This is more like a Smirnoff Ice.

Mouthfeel here is clean and crisp.

Overall, I'll give Shock Top Raspberry Wheat - Anheuser-Busch a 3.75. This probably is not going tobe picked up by me

Very unique fruit flavored beer for me. The smell is very unusually accurately sweet. A little too fruity for my tastes but I can't say I didn't hate it.... maybe another flavor would better. It was so fruity and sweets I think I should turn it into a slushie next time.

I love raspberries. So although this tasted more like a wine cooler than a beer, I still enjoyed it. A nice amber color, smell and taste overwhelmingly of raspberries, with a little citrus thrown in. I didn't think it was too sweet. A nice summertime beer for relaxing in the back yard, or eating with a light meal.
