Pours golden brown. Chili taste starts off strong, fades quickly though. Chocolate after taste. Nice aroma. Didn't get a pour for with the head as recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light tasting for a wheat beer but still has that almost meaty flavor. You can definitely taste the spices. It has the lovely cloudy appearance of a good wheat beer and it is well worth trying if wheat beers are your thing.

Nice bright cloudy amber beer with decent head; no lacing. Complex aroma with caramel malt, chocolate, cloves, nutmeg, orange and pepper. Tastes of caramel malt then an unusual fruity flavor (roasted mango-like), then a little spicy. Full creamy mouthfeel.

12 oz bottle. Pours cloudy brown-orange with a medium collapsing beige head that leaves a little lace. Aroma consists of generic beer, cinnamon. Taste is sweet and a bit savory with typical Shock Top/Blue Moon spices. Iím not getting too much chili--there might be a faint burn in the back of the throat, but itís barely detectable. Mouthfeel is creamy and the carbonation is soft. Probably the best Shock Top Iíve had, but you can tell they were playing it safe here. They could have amped up the chili more and made a real off-the-wall brew, but AB/InBev is all about not pushing any kind of envelope. Still, this is not too bad.

This is one of the better Shock Top beers, a pleasant surprise, and one that I would even drink again. Dark cloudy copper color, foamy head, though somewhat brief, minimal lacing. Nose hints at chocolate and chilis with a hint of the citrus zest typical of wheat beers. Flavor similar, with chili just giving a hint of smoke and tingle, no real heat, but its there. Whatever other spice is present is indistinct. Overall profile is semi-sweet, balanced, medium feel.

Cybercat (2986) - Georgia, USA - DEC 21, 2012
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!

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.

wlajwl (3546) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Aroma is spice, a hint of chocolate and wheat. The flavor is wheat, mildly tart fruit, malts and low but lingering spicy heat in the finish. Although slightly thin, it was pretty good, donít know if Iíve ever rated an AB beer/ale this high.

Lemke10 (682) - 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 Moonís line.
