A nice brown body with a quickly dissipating brown head. There was some mild lace and a some carbonated look. Aroma had some nice wheat notes to it and the chocolate and cinnamon seemed to really come through. Flavor had nice chocolate notes that really brought out a nice chilli flavor that seemed hidden in the aroma. Soft wheat notes. Carbonation seemed to really be a bit to high, almost forced. That really took away from the beer. Overall it was decent.

Not bad. Dark amber in color, smooth drink. There is a bit of spice heat aftertaste. Not a very thick beer.. Medium consistency. Small hint of chocolate.

Lemke10 (811) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 20, 2013
This pours a light brown color with a foamy beige head. There is a slight scent of chocolate and chili spice mixed with wheat. This is a complex, darker wheat flavor with elements of chocolate and spice as it promises. Surprisingly decent for being an AB-InBev competition product to Blue Moon’s line.

redpooba (400) - New York, USA - JAN 20, 2013
A caramel gold ale with a white head. Very little aroma, but the flavor is medium bodied and pretty rich. For those taking the narrow road in the crafty debate this is a no-no beer. But it actually has some good flavor notes.

Bottle and served in my small Ayinger Hefe glass: Pours a brown hue with a lasting lovely beige head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of chocolate, wheat, coconut, pepper, cinnamon, and some bready esters. The taste is sort of like a dunkelweizen with carmel and chocolate malt notes along with some wheat and banana. The spice is mostly a quick hit towards the finish without much staying power. I expected more Midnight Wheat character and roast than this provided and sort of knew that the spice would be tepid. For what it is it is drinkable.

Pours out a gorgeous hazy amber with a nice sized foamy white head. Faint but delightful nose of dark caramel, earthy wheat and some sort of near-chocolate malty sweetness like a dunklewiess. Flavor is a little too light, but tastes of dark sweet wheaty malts, light blonde cereal grains, a little pale cocoa, and a dry finish. Not terrible, but I just can’t reccomend this to anybody except those who already drink Shock Top.

djd07 (3822) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with medium tan head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is cinnamon and spice. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet raisin malt and cinnamon spice in the finish. A good spice brew from Shock Top

travita (4116) - Frisco, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle. The look is a light off white head, light orange in color. The smell is light, fruit, spice, and wheat. The taste is about the same. Just eh.

Hazy amber with a good sized beige head. Aroma is of caramel, bread dough, toffee, brown sugar. Taste is of caramel, wheat, booze.

Like the apocalypse that never came, this beer disappoints. There’s a reason that the six pack has lasted since fall.
