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.

Thereís a random number on bottle neck indicating date, I donít care enough to research this. A: Pours a turbid autumnal ruddy orange with limited ethereal head production. A translucent sheet of taupe foam remains. Spotty lace. S: Lots of allspice and nutmeg with some sour seedy characters. A bit of the yeast remains in there as well. T: Toasty with a graham cracker tone and again, plenty of nutmeg. Some cinnamon and bready tones. M: Medium bodied with really hi carb and a semi-dry finish. O: Meh. Same stuff, different bottle. Hard to find a really good pumpkin IMO. Serving type: bottle 10-20-2011

I had this at Applebee's. Pours hazy orange with a off white head. Taste pumpkin, spice. I thought this was good. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Six pack bottle, smell of wheat and a hint of spice, appearance is cloudy orange,taste is confusing with a mixture of lemon and spice, very mediocre beer that doesnít know if it is a straight wheat beer or pumpkin ale. Beer is ok but there are better options

Drank from the bottle, so no comments on appearance. This beer was offered to me by a friend, and I was intrigued with the opportunity to try a pumpkin beer as the fall weather is getting cooler. The flavor is odd, spicy, but neither smelled nor tasted of pumpkin. Instead, itís an odd combination of spices that succeeds in masking the beer flavor, but is not really pleasant at all. Interesting at first sip, but just unpleasant afterwards. Could not finish the bottle. Wonít buy or try again.

Light vegetal aroma but stronger fresh bread scents. Slightly murky pumpkin orange with a decent white head. Soft wheat flavor and body with light but enjoyable pumpkin pie spices. Light caramel sweetness balances out the veg and spices nicely. Good, light, refreshing fall pumpkin beer.

12fl oz. bottle. Pours a nearly clear, slightly dark orange with a half finger, off-white head that fades to a thin film quickly. Aroma is semi-sweet. Notes of pumpkin pie and spices. Taste is mild compared to the aroma. Not overly bitter or malty with a slightly spiced pumpkin aftertaste. Low to medium body with a medium carbonation. Fairly crisp and clean in the mouth. Refreshing and drinkable. Overall not bad but not the greatest. Could have a stronger flavour to match the aroma, and a bit more of a feeling in the mouth. Worth a try if you canít get any other pumpkin brew. Cheers!

Just drank this one out of the bottle. Picked up a 6 pack for Halloween. Aromas of weak pumpkin spice and some skunk. Tastes of herbal/floral stuff, dirty water, a hint of pumpkin, and artificial nutmeg. Sweet, rotten fruit finish. Flavors are forgettable and not all that pleasant. There goes another pumpkin beer I do not like. Drinkable, but not necessarily enjoyable.
