onceblind (4014) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 17, 2013
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 canít reccomend this to anybody except those who already drink Shock Top.

djd07 (3514) - 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 (3945) - 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.

jkwalking05 (3721) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2013
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. Thereís a reason that the six pack has lasted since fall.

maxwelldeux (3611) - Everett, Washington, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy darker amber color with a slight white head. Nose has a lot of grains in it. Taste is much the same, Odd. Would not peg this as a wheat beer.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Pours medium brown. Nose has elements of citrus, roast and some toffee and sweet malts. Flavors, are coffee, touch of chocolates, oranges, citrus, bitter roast astringency, and a like drover warming character of the chilis. Not overly bad for having some many flavors going on.

Drake (8503) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 9, 2013
12 ounce bottle from a Kroger. Pours a hazy amber-brown color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of wheat, mild cocoa and a fruity finish. The taste is wheat, chocolate, caramel, mild hops. Medium bodied. Solid beer.

cmonster (969) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Pours slightly hazy orange-brown with a large head. Typicla artificial soap sweet shock top aroma. Has spice and light chocolate malt. Medium sweet flavor. Light-med body, medium-thin texture, average carbonation and a light syrupy sweet finish. Best shock top Iíve had.

DMLINAZ (286) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Inoffensive, though not especially flavorful, especially given the somewhat dramatic description on the bottle. Hints of chocolate, some malts, slight spices; slightly fizzy, like a lot of Shock Tops. Not much aroma; slight chocolate. The only Shock Top Iíve liked so far is the raspberry wheat, and I think Iíve had almost all of them. This "end of the world" isnít bad, but at best is middle-of-the-road.
