beer_rookie (152) - Arkansas, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Pours a nice honey color. Cloudy. Looks like honey. Pretty decent head that is long lasting. No lacing really...

Smells like raspberry. Very heavy on the raspberry. Unnaturally like raspberry. Reminds me of the raspberry of a Bacardi Raz. I also smell some roasted malt, but itís very light. But the raspberry smell is great and overpowers it. I really like the smell.

Taste is artificially raspberry. Itís way too much raspberry.

Mouthfeel is light to medium. Goes down real easy, but the artificial raspberry lingers too long.

Overall, this is cute. But even for a flavored beer this suffers. Itís way too artificial. Even an actual raspberry doesnít taste like this. Iím disappointed. I donít taste any orange or anything else Iím supposed to. Iím not going to try this again. I would suggest you avoid this also, unless itís free

Smells and tastes like authentic raspberry, but it is quite sweet. Not that enjoyable due to sweetness.

YigSvartka (219) - Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 3, 2015
Cloudy transparent yellow with a meager sized white head. Overwhelming aroma of synthetic candied raspberry. Mid bodied and smooth. Some yeast and malted wheat backbone is present, but is supplanted by the candied raspberry. Drinkable, but far too sweet.

swiseman (449) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - APR 8, 2015
Pours a golden yellow with thin white head. strong aromas of raspberry bubblegum. very strong taste of artificial raspberry flavoring. finish is mildly sweet with some VERY faint hops. mouth is left with a tinge of over-ripe raspberries. good beer for those who like the taste of fake raspberries, but not beer. probably a great transition beer for someone who wants to get off coolers.

berkshirejohn (5223) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2015
12oz bottle from Wegmans, West Seneca, NY. A hazy pale amber pour with a fast fading bright white head; sour raspberry aroma; sweet raspberry taste; with a dry metallic finish - perhaps from the coriander. Fresh and not too sickly.

bennetporter (405) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Pours a cloudy straw from a bottle, quick-dissipating thin white head with no lacing. Smells saccharine sweet, tastes like soda. Meh.

hotstuff (4413) - Indiana, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Rated on 4-15-2013 (Bottle) This beer forms a small of-white head that quickly dissipates, hazy straw yellow body, fast rising carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is artificial raspberries, sweet, light wheat, citrus, coriander, and sour. The flavor is sweet, artificial raspberries, light coriander, and light wheat. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light bodied. Too sweet and too artificial tasting for my liking. This is a beer I have no interest in revisiting,

ordybill (701) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - DEC 26, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2015 Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. I have tried six other flavors of Shock Top, several have been pretty good, Unfortunately this ainít one of them. The taste is so sweet you can become an instant diabetic. The aftertaste is artificial and is so powerful that I canít even recall how the brew looked. It doesnít matter, avoid unless you like your beer soaked in rock candy.
