COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat is a traditional Belgian-style wheat ale brewed with ripe pumpkins and a variety of autumnal spices, including nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves, for a refreshingly smooth beer that fully captures all the flavors of fall.

12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s. Amber, clear appearance with a beige head. Aroma of mild pumpkin spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, light herbs and light wheat. Similar flavor, mildly spiced and lightly sweet. Decent.

HIGHB4LL (555) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 27, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: 2 fingers off-white head, amber orange color, clear, light lacing. Aroma: pumpkin, nutmeg, light cinnamon, wheat. Palate: light-medium body, average carbonation, slightly dry finish, slight sticky texture. Taste: sweet wheat, and into nice pumpkin pie sweetness and light caramel, pumpkin pie aftertaste as well. Overall, cloying sweet, balance is not great, but the pumpkin is well done, and given the style, enjoyable.

"dark hazy orange, thin head. pleasant aroma mostly pumpkin spices, but a touch of orange/coriander as well. thin fizzy feel is a drawback ,and makes the flavor seem simpler. same as the aroma, but the aftertaste is lacking. thin and a touch weak. overall, as good as i could have hoped for."

About average pumpkin beer. Nothing overpowering about it. Smells and taste good. If you didnt tell people it had pumpkin in it most wouldn’t notice.

This is just as "good" as any of the other run of the mill pumpkin beers out there, actually better than some. Spices aren’t overpowering and I can actually still taste the base wheat beer. *I don’t really care of pumpkin beers.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy medium amber, no lace, no head. Looks like iced tea. Taste is pumpkin and malt that moves right through the palate to a no-change finish. Pretty plain, and pumpkin in an unappealing way.

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2014
First pumpkin beer of the year, and once again I am not intrigued. It is basically a sweet pilsner filtered through pumpkins and graham crackers.

shrubber85 (7644) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle. Pumpkin malt and cinnamon/nutmeg aroma. Golden yellow with large head. Lightly sweet nutmeg, cinnamon and milky pumpkin malt flavor. Okay body. Not bad for a Shock Top.

It's nice but nothing special. The pumpkin was nowhere to be found. It's as if they decided they ended a rocket effort at a fall beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
