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.

...had this from the bottle. On the nose are strong pie spices, some clove, and other weird notes. Has some wheat flavor, but is overpowered by all the weird spices, and after a couple, it becomes very cloying and the aftertaste is very overpowering. I kinda enjoyed the first one, but after the second, that was enough. Shock top, I’m not shocked that this is another sub-par offering.

A wheaty aroma with some spice. Flavor is mild. Light body. A little spice, some pumpkin and cinnamon. Tastes a little synthetic. I would much rather prefer some smaller breweries with their specialty pumpkin beers.

bubbleflubber (2159) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Pours an orange-amber into the glass, with a very large, fluffy head that reduces to soap lacing. The nose is of soda (cola) with some pumpkin intermingling. Flavors of pumpkin meat, pie spices, clove and some cloying sweetness. The mouthfeel is of a flat soda, which is detracting if you like your brew outside of the bottle, as inside the bottle, the carbonation doesn't have the chance to expire as quickly. Decent pumpkin brew, once you get over the cloying, "trying too hard" sweetness. At least they're on the right track.

Impromptu tasting at my birthday. Expected the worst, and was somewaht surprised. The aroma is pumpkin, lots of pumpkin spice, wheat, clove. The appearance is a hazy orange, white head. The flavor is spicy, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, pumpkin, squash, brown sugar. The finish is spicy, like nutmeg, other pumpkin spices, cloves. Medium in body, maybe slightly thin. Not too bad.

bottle - Pours hazy with many flakes and a minimal head. It has a pleasant pumpkin spice aroma. The flavor is sweet and spicy with ample yeast character. This light bodied brew is a decent one.

355ml bottle. Hazy amber to orange colour with a decent head of white foam. The aroma is filled with spices, cinnamon and cloves. The flavour is fresh and spicey in the mouth with just a hint of burn. There is also some citrus flavours mixed in with the spices.

Dogbrick (11490) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Hazy orange-amber pour with a medium creamy white head that diminishes quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet pumpkin spice and a bit of malt. Light body with flavors of pumpkin and grainy malt. The finish is short and sweet with a pumpkin aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.
