COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Draft at Capone’s. Pours hazy brown with tan head. Nose is caramel malt, wheat, bready. Tasted like a pretzel, pretty amazing homology.

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!"

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

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.

rougeau13 (2594) - Richmond, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2016
Bottle from Kroger. Clear dirty dark amber-brown with almost zero beige bubbles. The aroma actually does smell of pretzels with a little citrus. Tastes a bit like cardboard and light pretzel with that weird Shock Top/Blue Moon cloyingness. Light-medium bodied and lightly fizzy.

Dark brown, thin beige head. Very bready aroma. Super wheaty flavor. Not loving it.

Copper colored beer with a minimal, white head. Aromas of salted caramel. Tastes of salty pretzel, dough, dry grains, and some caramel. Salty finish. I think this captures the pretzel flavor quite nicely. Just a bit too dry and salty. Decent beer.

As far as Shock Tops go, this is about par for the course. The flavor is pleasantly salty enough. The aroma does a decent-enough job of mimicking saltwater caramel. It is meant to be drunk from the can, since the aroma is a bit too sickly sweet even for someone as sickly sweet as myself. Mediocre but I got it cheap and I’m running out of beer.
