The flavor is not as rich as I would have hoped. Good and wheaty though. Overall slightly above average.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 9/28/2015. Pours hazy deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, coriander, orange peel, pear, apple, pepper, wheat, biscuit, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, pumpkin/spices, and bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, coriander, orange peel, pear, apple, pepper, wheat, biscuit, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal bitterness/yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, wheat,biscuit, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good robustness and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, pumpkin/spices, and bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/yeast/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5.1%. Overall this is a good pumpkin witbier style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, pumpkin/spices, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

It's pumpkin, a little spice and wheat. Better than its average rating here. Not sweet or cloying. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught pint at the Stagecoach Bar on 23-Oct12015. Served with cinnamon sugar around the rim. Hazy, orange amber colour with a small head. Aroma of spiced pumpkin and cinnamon. Friity oumkin flavour. OK, but a little bland. Didnt see the attraction myself.

Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat has a thick, frothy, off-white head, a mostly clear, bubbly, gold-orange appearance, which gets a descending, gray cloud, once the caked sediment is swished loose and poured in. No lacing left behind. The aroma is of spiced pumpkin bread and spiced candle. Taste is of pumpkin pulp, subdued spices, white wheat bread, and just a touch of bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and soft, and Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat finishes on the dry side. RJT

stevoj (3298) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Bottle from Albertsons. Nothing special here, but not totally gross either. Just about as generic as you can get. At least it’s not a pumpkin pie spice overload....

MarcoDL (3387) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2015
Bottle. Dark copper color. Aroma of pumpkin and sweet wheat. Simple taste of sweet chemical pumpkin and wheat. Not good, but not nearly as bad as most ratings make it to be.
