3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
(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.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap: not nearly as good as it sounds from the description. That isn’t to say that it’s bad, though... Solid, fun beer.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy fine to large sized dark auburn colored bubbles that were and left behind a semi-transparent light brown colored body. The mild aroma was wheat. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild pleasant flavor contained notes of wheat and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wheat aroma comes to the nose. Cloudy copper/amber color with a decent foam. Chili and spice overtones with a caramel and wheat background. Overall, not very good quality. Tastes pretty unbalanced. Not the last drink I’d like to enjoy before the end of the world.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Strong aroma is wheaty and yeasty and has a firm dry hay note. Pours a dark, slightly hazy chestnut with a thick pale tan head. Wheaty flavor has hints of cloves and chocolate, quite tasty. Texture has about average body but good fizz. End of the World? Not today!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Next to nothing for me on aroma. Flavor is interesting with the chili, but overall nothing to write home about. Not bad, but not good.
