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.

355 mL bottle. Orange-brown with just a ring of head. Aroma is mild spice and almost candy-like pumpkin. The flavour is nicely, if mildly, spiced. Quite sweet, though.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with quickly-disappearing white head. The aroma is nutmeg and cinnamon with a little bit of sweet breadiness. The flavor is a little bit bland, but, on the good side, the spices arenít overwhelming like so many other pumpkin beers. Thereís kind of a dull wheat taste behind the spice, then a little bit of disembodied acidity. Tap water finish. Itís not all that good, but honestly I donít hate it like I expected I would.

On tap at a local eatery. Served in a pint glass. Pours deep copper with a 1/2" off white head. Aroma is equal parts wheat & pumpkin. Flaver is wheat, mild spice and pumpkin. Kind of like a hefe, only remove the classic banana & substitute pumpkin. Light palate with somewhat aggressive carbonation. Not great, but much better than I was expecting.

Nice pumpkin aroma and it goes surprisingly well with the belgian yeast and wheat. Nice lightly vegetal pumpkin lingering in the aftertaste.

Better than I thought it would be. My hopes were not very high. Overall I think the Belgian white style of beer took the pumpkin and spices very well.

12oz twist-off bottle. Cloudy amber color. Aroma of heavy pumpkin spice. Tastes of watery squash juice. Finishes with a nutmeg, cinnamon spice tingle on the palate. I can say Iíve tried (tickíd) it.

Pours slightly hazed deep amber into a shaker. White head recedes at a medium pace leaving no lacing. Sweet pumpkin and nutmeg aromas. Dry with bubblegum and pumpkin upfront turning to earthy pumpkin before the lasting slightly sour finish.

Light brown pour. Aroma of brown sugar, cinnamon, and spices. Typical sweet pumpkin spice cocktail. Maybe a very small amount of actual pumpkin. Light wheat beer taste. A little watery. Average. Worth getting if youíre in a mood for a pumpkin beer and this is all you can find/afford, or if you want something light bodied thatíll go down easy. Grab a Sam Adams Harvest Pumpkin Ale instead if all else is equal, though-- much fuller more flavorful taste.

I like this beer because of what it is. It isnít a pumpkin beer, it is a wheat beer brewed with pumpkin and it even says it on the bottle. Still maintains a nice wheat backbone with accents of pumpkin and spices. A nice offering and definitely a change of pace from you may be used to with pumpkin brews.

Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat is a cloudy, turbulent amber ale. The bubbles continually replenish a thin, swirling white film on the surface of it. Pumpkin and wheat are both present in the aroma, along with nutmeg and allspice. Itís medium bodied, foamy and bubbly on the tongue. It leaves the mouth a little chalky. Itís lightly flavored with lemony wheat. The spices come in later and the flavor and push it to be more savory. A light, green bitterness lingers after the swallow. This is kind of neat. Itís like an American take on a dunkelweizen. The pumpkin isnít readily detectable. This is a nice autumn flavor for a beer.
