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 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy copper with a nice two inch, beige head that slowly fades. Taste is of wheat, pumpkin, nutmeg, yeast, malt and spice. Similar aroma. Has a decent body that is slightly dry and a bit bitter. Very easy to drink and a good seasonal beer.

ilovedarkbeer (2287) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2011
On tap. Pours an orange color with a medium sized white foamy head. Notes of pumpkin pie, (nutmeg, cinnamon, etc) squash, and wheat beer. Sweet yet refreshing. Not that bad for AB.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Bottle.
Pours a decent pumpkin orange with a nose of subtle pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and banana bread. Flavor is pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, and bread. Average mouthfeel. This is a great session beer for a Halloween party. Definite repeat.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Bottle. Aroma has notes of citrus, pumpkin and vegetables. Hazy medium orange hue with a small white head that mostly diminished and left no lace. Flavor is medium sweet. Palate is light/medium bodied and watery average. Overall a weak vegetable brew that failed to impress.

I had this while camping out with some friends at the Indiana Dunes State Park. I had this during the night, so I can’t really comment on the appearance. If anything, this tastes like Shock Top but with a slight hint of pumpkin, and when I say slight I mean SLIGHT. I think they just tried to get in on the pumpkin beer season and figured they’d just add a small bit of pumpkin flavoring to their already popular offering. Meh.

johnnyoski (436) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - OCT 6, 2011
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange color with a short lived, fizzy tan head. Lots of baking spices on the nose...cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar and maybe a hint of pumpkin. The spices are not as pronounced in the flavor. I get more of a malty, veggie taste with a grassy, wheat finish. Thinner texture with average carbonation. Not as complex as some of the other pumpkin seasonals but still very drinkable.

Not sure why I am rating this except that I am trying it. Pours a cloudy orange with a white head that disappears quickly. The nose is slightly vegetal with a strong hit of spice (cinnamon, nutmeg). Very light on the palate with some aspects of spice coming through along with some yeasty components. The spice lingers a touch on the finish. Easy drinking and not much else.

Draft. Dude. This one was surprising in a good way, pours a darker cloudy orange. Smells of spice and wheat. Nice spicy (nutmeg, cinnamon, clove) smell with a good but overdone sweetness. I actually like this one better than half the pumpkins I’ve tried this year.
