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.

Big thanks to my son in law nate for this brew. Smells a little alky, like old lager. A little pumpkin and spice on the taste buds but tastes moslty like other shock tops. Background with a little orange and wheat, very little pumpkin.

A hazy amber-orange pour with an off-white head. The aroma has wheat, light cinnamon, and faint pumpkin. The medium body has a slick texture with average carbonation. The taste is moderately sweet with a lightly spiced flavor. Put the bias aside, this is a decent fall beer.

I got a very small sample of this beer at my local Wegmanís. I didnít think much of it, knowing that itís an AB beer. But it really surprised me. This beer was actually pretty decent. I would even consider buying a sixer of it. But I didnít, because I had my eye on something else for this trip. The beer poured a cloudy copper color with a nice-sized tan head. The nose smelled of light pumpkin, clove, banana, cinnamon and nutmeg. The flavors were fairly well-balanced, with a nice pumpkin note, along with all those other spices I mentioned in the aroma. The beer finished smooth and palatable, with a spicy and earthy flavor.

12 ounce bottle pours a orangish color with virtually no head. Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, and a touch of pumpkin. Flavor has a mild pumpkin, cinnamon, and some clove. Nothing special, but not bad either...

Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy orange copper with a small frothy off white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is cinnamon and spice. Thin mouthfeel with a clove and nutmeg flavor. Not much going on with this one.

Another disappointment for a fall beer. I guess Iím just not getting all the flavor from these pumpkin beers that others are.

Bottle. Pours hazy coppery orange with a small foamy beige head. Aromas of sweet pumpkin, light cinnamon and nutmeg, and cardamom. The flavor is sweet cinnamon sticks, spicy nutmeg, and wheat. Alright. [822]

Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Cloudy amber brew with off white head. Not much aroma. Taste is sour wheaty with a noticeable pumpkin element. Not much taste at the end of the swallow. Thin palate. Interesting take on pumpkin brew.

12oz bottle. pours out orangish/red color with minimal head. the aroma is light of cinnamon but more nutmeg and pumpkin. i can actually taste pumpkin and light spice versus some of the others i have had. i actually liked the taste of this much better than some i have tried. you have your pumpkin and you have you minimal spice effect...is it just plain...in some respects yes in others not so bad...pleasantly surprised.
