Not as good as the regular Shock Top but still an okay beer. Hazy gold body and a soapy white head represent a sweet, easy drinking beer. The aroma is all raspberries, and the taste is mostly raspberries with a little citrus. I think the raspberries overpower the beer a bit, but it’s a good summer quencher.

Pours a light amber color with quick dissipating head. Aroma is mostly wheat and raspberry. Flavor is mostly raspberry. The artificial raspberry flavor over powers any other flavor, if any, that this beer might have. An ok beer. I probably won’t be drinking it again anytime soon.

Very good overall beer. Appearance was a little off, only because you have to swirl to make it look like a wheat beer.

Golden amber pour with a quick dissipating head. Light fruit aromas with a touch of yeast. Flavor is light malt with hints of fruit, kinda thin.

12-ounce bottles. Disappointing. I love wheat beers but you can’t hardly tell it was made with wheat. There is a very strong fake raspberry flavor that overpowers any other flavors, and it lingers on the tongue for a long time after taking your last drink. I don’t mind sweet drinks, but the raspberry just tastes way too artificial. At least its not bitter.

Bottle. Hazy yellowy golden with no real head. Does smell like "raspberry." Tastes grassy, grainy, and like "raspberry."

From the bottle poured a cloudy golden brew with not a lot of white head. Fruity aroma. Flavor of malt, raspberry, vanilla and hops. Tasty.

czar (7040) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2016
pours hazy very pale yellow with a small white cap offering minimal retention and lacing. sweetish dusty grains, raspberry-flavoured candies, the ’’blue’’ artificial flavour, vanilla, astringent herbs - coriander et al.; hint of sweetness - white cranberry and grape juice, tons of chalk. moderate carbonation - prickles a little though; light body, semi-sweet and awkwardly astringent herbal and mineral-chalky finish. artificial blue - not a complete fail even though very disappointing.

I’m a dude. This is presumably a chick beer. My girlfriend asked me to pick these up for her. She drank one out of the six and then switched to my beers. They’ve been in the fridge for quite a while. I gave one a go. It has a sour fake raspberry flavor that stays on the tongue. It was work to finish it. I truly hated this beer.

From a bottle. Light, artificial raspberry flavor. Minimally sweet. I don’t know how you would add "natural raspberry flavor" but not add actual raspberries, but it appears they have figured out a way. The flavor of natural raspberries, maybe?

Small white head. Murky yellow body. Aroma is dominated by raspberries. Flavor is overly sweet and reminds me of raspberry jello just after pouring the hot water not the dry powder. Truthfully, only reason I have it is because someone gave me a bottle. Still, it’s really nice on this overly hot night.
