Shock Top Raspberry WheatShock Top Raspberry Wheat

Brewed by:
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.

A - 2 fingers of bubbly ever-so-slightly-off-white head over a cloudy yellow body with sediment and a small amount of carbonation bubbles; head dissipates quickly into nothing

T - sweet raspberry and wheat, citrus, touch of spice

M - thin body, low/average carbonation

O - not much to the smell or taste; overly sweet; like drinking a soft drink

A: This beer pours a hazy light gold with a moderate 1 inch head. On the thinner side of lacing with just a little sticking around after the initial pour.

S: Light wheat smell with a rich burst of raspberry. Very pleasing smell, really gets you excited to try

T: Fail. Not a fan in any sense of this beer's taste. The first sip is not bad. A good amount of your typical wheat beer taste and a strong punch of raspberry. Unfortunately, after the first drink it's out with the good and in with the bad. The raspberry is overwhelming. One of the sweetest beers I have ever had. If you do enjoy really rich, sweet beers than this may be worth a try. The smell drew me in but the overwhelming sweetness drove me away.

M: A little on the watery side. Not very wheat beer like.

Overall: This beer is just too sweet for myself. If you are a fan of beers such as Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy or like wine coolers than this may be for you. Otherwise I would suggest looking elsewhere.
