Just in time for National Pretzel Day on April 26, Shock Top has united the classic taste of a crisp, cold beer and warm, bakery-fresh pretzels in its newest brew, Shock Top Twisted Pretzel Wheat. The brewer today announced the limited-edition beer, a Belgian-style unfiltered wheat ale that delivers the delicious taste and aroma of fresh pretzels, will be served up at beer festivals nationwide—and available on draught at select locations.

RSRIZZO (1960) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2016
12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Weizen glass at 43°. Color is dark brown with just a slight haze. Carbonation is good giving it a small white head. Wow they nailed the aroma, it smells just like a soft salted pretzel. It has a light body with a crisp mouth feel. Flavor is not quite as good as the aroma but still tasty with a little pretzel, salt, caramel and spice showing. After taste is clean with the salt hanging on the end. Overall its good but seems to be missing something.

altonbrownd (5770) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - OCT 14, 2016
Bottle from Chevy Chase Supermarket. Hazy brown body with medium head. Nose is malty, spices, pretzel for sure. Taste is malty, toasty, caramel, toast. Thin texture. Malty finish. Okay. Not super interesting.

fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - OCT 14, 2016
Bottle taken to a party. The bready pretzel flavor and aroma were present but they were not particularly good. It wasn’t off putting, just not something I need twice.

degbert (1705) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 6, 2016
Bottle. Pours a hazy, murky medium brown with a high, creamy, fine-grained, off-tan head. Nose is wheat toast, salt, imitation maple syrup, and a very small amount of phenols. On the palate, it’s reminiscent of a mediocre American dunkelweizen. There’s a little molasses sweetness and a little dark roast grain, and to be honest it’s not bad at all. But there’s nothing about it to me that says pretzel, particularly. Finish is medium-long and clean, and that’s where I can finally taste the wheat/wit element. Not too bad, actually; I might drink a sixer of these on a week I was short on cash.

p0rkch0p (90) - Missouri, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Fizzy cola pour with quickly gone head. Taste is so pretzel like it seems to have born in a lab, not a brewery. Kind of a gimmick, had to check it out.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2016
Draft at Capone’s. Pours hazy brown with tan head. Nose is caramel malt, wheat, bready. Tasted like a pretzel, pretty amazing homology.

Cajun (418) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Bottle - Pours a dark copper/brown with fizzy white head. Aroma of salty pretzels and sweet wheat malt. Flavors of malt and pecan sandies, with a caramel hint, mild hops center. Pretzel aftertaste. "These pretzels are making me thirsty!"

Jerm719 (170) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 12, 2016
Budweiser tried on this one, ill give em that. It sounds good (even though I’m not a fan of pretzels) Rice, wheat, barley. Typical budweiser product. I was looking for a biscuit malt base with some sweet salty flavor. Typical lager, some wheat. blah

dlihcsnatas (625) - Texas, USA - SEP 4, 2016
Brown brew with decent head that does smell a little like a pretzel. Taste is a little like a pretzel too so it is what the label said it to be. Not bad but not really loving it either so will be just a one time buy.

Caramel brown pour with bready aroma. Bready flavor-almost pretzel with lots of wheat. Okay.
