3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a tulip glass.
Aroma- has a very strong chocolate aroma, very unique for a brew
Appearance- pours a coffee black with a small dark head
Taste- a huge chocolate flavor that caught me off-guard. Not a bad taste but little hint of a beer in there.
Palate- a medium bodied beer with a creamy sensation.
Overall- I thought it was good, a beer to drink for an occasion and not for a multiple beer event. a Pleasant surprise

Bottle. Pale golden body, average white head. Raspberry candy aroma and flavour, underlying sweet grains. I can understand why this is popular as a beer-cooler kind of thing, but it’s not for me.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
2014-10-26. Hazy dark yellow with a small white head. Aroma of artificial seeming raspberry aroma and light wheat. Flavour has similar impression of artificial raspberry over sweet cereally wheat. After a long day of better beer I abandoned this after a few sips and went for a caffeinated soda. Meh. Bottle shared by GG

Gross. Taste like medicine. Husband said tastes like raspberry emergen-c. Not impressed.

"i kinda dug the abundant raspberry aroma of this beer, but that’s where the love ends. thin and simple. not offensive, but i thought the orange & coriander clashed with the raspberry flavor, which seemed more fake than the aroma. overall, ok, and better than i thought. in the catergory of "i wouldn;t refuse a free one but wouldn’t buy again"."

A good wheat framboise. I really like how easy it is to drink. This was the first fruit beer I’ve ever had.

12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s. Hazy golden orange appearance with an average white head. Aroma and flavor is mostly raspberries with light wheat malts and touch of spices. Light bodied and easy to drink. Decent fruit beer, not too bad.

Bottle at home. Pours a yellow gold. Aroma is all berries. Flavor follows - raspberries with a slight wheat edge to it. Lighter bodied. Finishes clean. Nice beer. Of the Shock Top line, this is my favorite so far.

Its ok. Strong raspberry aroma. Very fruity not very strong. Reminds of boomerang beer from Molson years ago. Its a beer and I drink beer so it works.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy dirty medium amber with a thin rim head, no lace. This amounts to a "pretend" framboise, such as it is. Taste begins with wheat malt and the flavor of raspberry. So far, so good, except that it is watery, lacks raspberry richness, has no complexity, and has strong fizz in the finish. Okay for Shock Top, not okay against real contenders.
