My mom swore to me that this wasnít gross - she knows nothing about beer. Looks like a normal hefe, manages to be the worst one Iíve had. Itís super sweet, I doubt thereís any real fruit to it, just tastes like someone poured raspberry syrup and sugar in a crap wheat beer. Yuck

golden with small head. raspberry flavor is strong, and seems a bit fake. the underlying beer is unremarkable, but ok.

Itís basically the Shock Top Wheat with a little bit of synthetic raspberry. I think it comes through more in the aroma than the flavor. Itís probably going to be what you will expect if youíre a fan of Shock Top beers. Doesnít compare to a well put together fruit beer, or a well put together wheat beer.

Bottle @ home. Cloudy yellow orange appearance with a moderate sized, off white head and poor retention. Poor raspberry purťe/additive, tangy tart aroma. Raspberry soda, sweet wheat malty, juice box, syrupy flavor. For what it is, it isnít bad. Probably could be a decent seller for them and I wonít have any problems pounding this bottle in a couple of minutes.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2012 Poured in a pint glass from bottle. Pours a nice, hazy orange with small head that dissipates quickly. Like most everyone else, this drinks like a raspberry soda. It has lots of raspberry flavor and a little bit of hay malt flavor in the background. Very fizzy and watery. Itís not terrible, but itís just cloying.

12oz bottle poured into glass. Split with my brother. OK so it says raspberry and thatís what I expected, well thatís whats in this beer. The only problem is that the base beer is very wimpy and weak. A good attempt though.

Get over it bitches. This is a FRUIT beer. It tastes like a FRUIT beer. And it is not half bad. Raspberry and wheat taste, with a bit of hay and malt. Very decent.

This tastes more like a rasberry soda so if u are expecting a beer...do not buy this. It smells good though. Its a shame that anhaiser has resorted to shady marketing techniques in order to trick people into thinking they are buying a microbrew. This beer is refreshing until the horribley artificial dry after taste kicks in...its not clean at all. Sort of similar to morning breath.

If you are looking for a good Raspberry Beer go with "Purple Haze" by Abita... much better than Shock Top...
Looks like mass distribution is hurting the quality of shock top..SAD...
