Dixonian (1561) - Plano, Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2013
12oz bottle. Dull amber pour with a bit of head. Aroma is very wheat forward with some weak spices. Thin on the palate with little flavor.

brokensail (10728) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Amber pour with an off-white head. Actually a half-decent aroma. Banana, toasted bread, chocolate, and yeast. Mild spicing and a light cardboard quality. Kind of a watery flavor and a touch of cardboard, but not bad otherwise. Faint spice notes, hints of chocolate, banana, toast, and bread. Light in body and rather highly carbonated.

Haslinger (865) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2012
bottle. smells decent and the aftertaste is one of light chocolate and slight malt. Very good and surprisingly tasty compared to the regular shock top. Would drink again

bhensonb (10902) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark amber with a fizzy/creamy beige head. Aroma is a dilute chocolate? Med body. Flavor is sort of the old style chocolate malt candy. Horlicks? Kind of dry, or at least not too sweet. Another AB beer which demands "why?"

thirdeye11 (5536) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 30, 2012
(12oz bottle thanks to Dixonian) clear medium amber, wispy bubbles. Nose of wheat, chocolate malt, banana, doesn’t smell half bad. Taste is just ok, banana, wheat, chocolate malt, dry grain, palate finish is just ok, and leaves a less than pleasant taste behind.

ADesenberg (581) - Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Tap: not nearly as good as it sounds from the description. That isn’t to say that it’s bad, though... Solid, fun beer.

finn1918 (193) - Georgia, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Pours a hazy brown with two fingers of white head that quickly fades. Aroma is weak wheat and pepper. Taste is wheat, chocolate and some slight chili with some very faint hop bitterness. Not bad and different enough for a macro brew, but nothing special.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
AKThunder (166) - New York, USA - DEC 28, 2012
A very nice toasty aroma, a nice aftertaste of Chili, not really noticing the chocolate too much, but it is very well balanced. This is actually my first Shock Top product, and I have to say it is enjoyable. I will now have to try their Belgian Wheat, which I never have since of the macro Belgian Wheats, always was a Blue Moon fan.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 11/20
Westmeister (1723) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Bottle. Pours an unclear, murky amber/brown with medium head and some spotty lacing. Smell is grain, faint chocolate and pie-like spices. Taste is actually quite bland given the ingredients and mediocre smell. Shows some mild spice, cocoa powder. Weak palate. Overall, neither worse nor better than my expectations. A different spin on a below average line of brews.

beerbaaron (1187) - Arizona, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Deep reddish brown. Frothy head reducing to soapy. Aroma of wheat and light spices. Didnt get any chocolate really. Not the most flavorful beer. Light to medium body. Props for the concept.
