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.

Shock Top Raspberry Wheat from St. Louis, MO.

This beer has a great raspberry smell and an equally good raspberry flavor. Refreshing raspberry wheat.

I drank it from a bottle from Food City in Knoxville, TN on 12/19/2012 from a create your own 6-pack.

Yes.

I was very pleased and surprised by this beer considering the pumpkin wheat version was good and I had some reservations about the raspberry working as well, from a taste perspective.

Its appearance was nothing spectacular - it was your run-of-the-mill yellow-orange ale look. It was even cloudier than I expected. The head was almost non-existent and there was no lacing to mention. Smell was what surprised me - a very appealing scent of raspberry that I thought mixed well with the hops - very appealing. Taste was just as good, if not better than the smell. Mouthfeel was nothing memorable - like most of the beers I've partaken of lately.

Overall, I think it deserves it score due to its strong and mouth-watering odor of raspberry with a taste to match.
