First off, my experience with this beer is that Shock Top on draft is an entirely different phenomenon than when taken from a bottle. In both cases appearance is usually good with a foamy head and wheat cloudiness, but the flavor and texture comes out much better on draft. The bottled version is usually rather flat and bland. On draft, fairly creamy and very orangey- the taste is rather uncomplicated and heavy on citrus. That being said, if you want a straitforward citrus taste, this beer is for you. Orange smell, orange color, orange taste, orange beer. Good for what it is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

ComradeK (1067) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2015
Draught at The Cornerstone, Kenora, Ontario. Pours a hazy medium gold, quite dark for a wit, with a smallish white head, which lasts pretty well, and leaves good lacing. The aroma is dominated by orange peel, with not too much influence from coriander, and not a lot of wheat presence. Orange and light coriander up front give way to wheat sweetness in the mid-palate, which joins with sweet orange in the finish. Drinkable, but a bit out of balance, and lacking that witbier crispness.

Dacrza (596) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2015
DATE TASTED: May 17, 2015... GLASSWARE: plain weizen... OCCASION: a long day of yard and garden work in the books... APPEARANCE: slightly hazy, lemon yellow body that sports minimal carbonation; fizzing white head fizzles to a pencil-thin mustache; soap suds for lacing...AROMA: funky farmhouse yeast challenges the expectation of a orange-peel label; pungent rubber and plasticine... PALATE: watery, oily, slippery and paradoxically, only mildly refreshing... TASTE: Malty and off-kilter--lukewarm sweetness and not much in the way of flavor...OVERALL: a pretty bad approximation of a wheat beer...tough to find much positive to say about this, and I have railed against bad beers in other reviews for too long...so, I would only drink this if little else we’re available--even a light beer is preferable...

Gbgbrouge (317) - SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2015
From tap. Cloudy orange with very low head. Aroma is weak with notes of orange and some bread and yeast. Taste is mostly sweet orange, fairly little CO2. Nice on a really hot day, otherwise...NAH

BlackHaddock (4698) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2015
14th May 2015: 12oz bottle into a La Chouffe badged stemmed tulip glass. Hazy light orange pour with a full white head. Citrusy and spicy nose, the taste similar. Watery and thin body wise, the flavours also on the weak side, orange peel like feel to the taste, but not pleasant. Glad I didn’t buy this: it was brought to a BBQ by a guest.

Good wheat beer with very little aroma tast is a fruity sweet and the cloud color lets you know it's a wheat. I would say this is average at best.

Beersmithbacon (93) - San Luis Rey, California, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Salty wierd bandaid spice nose. Super watery with no real wit flavor. Helped putting an orange slice in it. Super fizzy but no head or aroma or flavor to support carbonation.

I mean it’s a Shocktop. Great intro beer to get folks into craft beer. Not much to see other than that. Potentially the sole reason why I no longer like Wit’s as much as I used to.
