BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Anheuser-Busch
Missouri, United States

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.

For sitting and watching sporting events at home this is a wonderful beer. Great chic beer! Even a few guy friends like it but wouldn't admit it to anyone. Not too sweet and doesn't really taste like beer. Once again your girlfriend might like it.

There a lot of craft beers I have been trying & this site was recommended so here I am. If I had known I would had reviewed much sooner. Look forward to UFC this weekend and more beers to try.

Review from the bottle.

Pours hazy golden. One inch head, no lacing.

Aroma is pure raspberry Kool-Aid.

The taste is pure raspberry Kool-Aid. Really, that's it. No real wheat beer characteristics here, it shares more in common with wine coolers or Kool Aid than beer.

Crackly carbonation, very crisp. The real plus to the beer, I suppose. Light bodied.

Not really beer. It's drinkable, but way too artificial and sweet.
