(draught) hazy yellow gold with generous white head. Faint citrus aroma (it was served with an orange wedge, so that helped). Flavor was mildly spiced witbier with a hint of citrus. Really not too bad.

Shock Top Belgian White is a pale and cloudy beer. While the beer pours well and a nice off-white head forms initially, it immediately evaporates. A very mild aroma is a mixture of orange and lime.
With very mild flavors of orange, lime and coriander, this light wheat beer finishes watery.

12oz Bottle - Top Foods - Olympia, WA
Aroma – Light Belgian aroma, very light citrus also in the nose.
Appearance – Light pale Yellow in color, Nice head and clear.
Flavor – Lots of wheat and light citrus flavor. The Belgian yeast was very light to taste.
Palate – Nice easy Mouthfeel, good texture with a dry finish.
Overall – This was a decent beer noting too special. The label was more than the beer for flavor. I was expecting a huge fruit flavor. This was a nice mass drinking beer.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hazy golden yellow hue with white head. Grassy wheat aroma with a hint of citrus. Good carbonation and light body. A bit of lemony flavor, but mainly malt taste. A sticky spicy finish. For a belgian style wheat it misses quite wide. An average wheat... sure I guess.

pretty good beer coming from a major brand. the beer has actually been sold and been in the world beer cup for some years, under the name of "summer heat wheat." but not a bad overall belgian wheat...

AB is really trying with this beer.A definate competition to Blue Moon, with the AB product being slightly better.Mostly a citrus nose and flavor which you can detect with some maltiness.Finish was clean with not much lingering around.
