Continuing on my Shock Top kick, next up is this one. Most of the time this was poured into a pint glass, but because it says Belgian on the label, I did pour this once into a chalice and once into a snifter, there wasn’t any noticeable difference. The appearance was a ruddy brown to almost a slight red color with a decent looking half fingered white foamy and bubbly head. This head rapidly dissipated into oblivion leaving nothing on top of the beer itself. What lacing, there wasn’t any. The smell, well that definitely had the raspberry to it. There was some light wheaty/breadiness about it as well. The taste was basically raspberry and wheat and it was fairly well combined. The palate, well, it sat about a light to medium on the body and showed a fairly decent sessionable quality about it. The carbonation seemed not bad. Overall, not a bad beer. I think Budweiser did what they wanted to with this beer. However, would I have this again? Probably not.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2014
I dont think this is a very good example of a fruit flavoured beer. Its standard appearance is quite fine in a hazed golden pour with a frothed creamy foam atop the body. However, the nose points to synthetic raspberry and grains and frankly not much else that this nose can detect. Its sweet, as it should be, slightly bitter. The nose is still distracting from the flavour profile, however. Nothing wheat about this beer as far as I can tell. A creamy finish is left with the memories of fake raspberries.

sudomorph (515) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2014
473ml can that says Raspberry White. Pours a cloudy dark yellow with a two finger, white head that thins quickly. Aroma has a big raspberry and not much else. Taste is of sweeter raspberry with a sweeter aftertaste. Mild wheat notes. Medium body and carbonation. Syrupy mouth feel. Overall ok. Probably used raspberry flavouring. A bit too much sweet and no tart.

OntBeerDrinker (424) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2014
Can to glass: 3 finger head stays a moment then gone. Pale orange look. Carbination. Lovely Raspberry "Jam" samell. Taste: Some raspberry w/ a lager/wheat teaste. Shock top has some good flavours but the beer it’s self not 100% good. Suck’s some.

cmacklin (226) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 31, 2014
12 fl oz bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a thin, short lived white head. Aroma is raspberry and wheat. Sweet, syrupy flavour with raspberry and wheat leading to a dry finish. Medium body with a smooth texture and fizzy carbonation. Too sweet and artificial for my liking.

alexsdad06 (5338) - Ohio, USA - MAY 31, 2014
12 oz bottle from Kroger. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet, artificial raspberry notes somelight wheat malts and not much else. Thin and watery. Pass.

Lagerboy (1186) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 31, 2014
341 ml bottle from the Summer Variety pack. Unclear dirty yellow, thin off-white fading foam. Promising berry fruity aroma. Disappointing weak and watery berry wit taste and not much else. Softer than average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Poorly made. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

robinvboyer (2994) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
Artifical raspberry, next to no wheat detected. Watery, and thin. Not very refreshing, not even a food wife beer. Another flop.

Yellow pour with white head. Aroma is raspberry syrup. Flavour has wheat, artificial raspberry, and a terrible sulfuric finish. Awful.
