Smooth, crisp, and light wheat beer. Drinkable, but not a stellar example of the style.

I purchased a 12 pack sampler of Shock Top. Opened the first Belgian White and when I poured it into a glass, it had lots of sedimentation/trub/or infection. Smell was off and so I tossed it. Opened a second one, it seemed ok. Smell and taste was lightly hopped with citrus notes. Color was a traditional haze indicative of a hefe. Overall, Fair representation of the style.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a nice mix of citrus and grass, not overwhelming Appearance- A murky golden yellow with a medium sized white head. Taste- Has a nice flavor of wheat and a slight citrus backdrop Palate- A light bodied brew with medium carbonation that has a crisp finish Overall- Not a bad beer, middle of the road.

Draft at the norva. A little dark to see the color, but cloudy, oranish, off-white head. Aroma is orange peel, wheat. Flavor is wheaty, citrus, belgian yeast. Goes down easy, but overall not much to write home about. But would you expect anything more?

Okay wow. I like unfiltered wheat beers a lot, but this this, this... is not one of them. I have friends that turn their noses at the mention of wheat bee. If this had been my first experience with it, I think I would be right there with them.........I reserve the word íaromaí for things like apple pie in the oven and honeysuckles. The ísmellí of this beer is slightly orange, and slightly honey. There is nothing aromatic about it. It rates a little higher than burning leaves,....It does however have a good appearance. It is cloudy and looks like it will be a good beer. I think it has sort of a lemony color, but that ísmellí may be burning my eyes....It tastes okay. Itís not great, but itís not terrible. But more so, it makes me want to hurry up and move on to something else....Mouthfeel is odd. It tastes silky. It is very thin, almost flat....Overall, itís not a great beer. Iíve had other Shock Tops that I like better Label mentions citrus peel flavor, but Iím not getting much of that. This beer is quite a let down.

From tap. Pours fuzzy. Smell is bitter. Taste is wheat, with a weird ( arteficial?) bitterness that is very upfront. Meh dont care much about this

This cheap beer from Albertson's was purchased at $2 and tastes like it. Maybe it's just another crappy Anheiser Busch beer.

Cloudy orange pour, small white head. Aroma is orange, grass and wheat. Taste is orange, grass, wheat and some lemon. Thin and uneventful. Prefer over most mass produced beers.

Bought it randomly. Nothing compared to a real belgian white but still a nice beer. I like the syrup like taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice beer to have when you go to the pub. Has become widely available across the continent.
