Who would design a beer to taste like this? Terrible, especially the first 10 seconds!

Wish this was available year round. Was on the fence about this one but it is just suprisingly perfectly balanced somewhere between a good wheat beer with complexity of a dark lager or even a porter. Tastes exactly like it sounds and not at all artificial. Smells deliciously of a toasted buttery pretzel. Absolutely loved it.

I would consider this close to a dunkel. Could have a better balance...leaning a bit towards the sweet side. The mild pretzel/wheat flavors compliment the caramel malt. I wanted this to be better, but for Shock Top didn’t expect much more. Decent, drinkable, and affordable.

My wife and I love this beer. We had it on draft at Founder’so it was even better. Wish it was sold by itself to not a variety pack. Would buy it year round if it was offered.

Bottle. Pours copper brown with a thin white head. Aroma of buttery pretzels, caramel and bread. Flavor of salty pretzels, caramel, wheat and some light saltiness. A decent gimmicky brew.

12 ounce bottle poured into glass. You can smell the heavy wheat pretzel aroma. Thin white head and the unique taste of pretzels inside this unusual brew. Smooth on the palate.and above average style.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 8/12/2016. Pours hazy reddish copper color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of steaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of caramel, orange peel, coriander, clove, wheat, toasted biscuit, salt, light chocolate/nuttiness, herbal, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of dark/bready malt, spices, and light-moderate yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, orange peel, coriander, clove, wheat, toasted biscuit, salt, light chocolate/nuttiness, herbal, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal bitterness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, orange peel, coriander, clove, wheat, toasted biscuit, salt, light chocolate/nuttiness, herbal, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of dark/bready malt, spices, and light-moderate yeast ester flavors; with a nice malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light dryness from bitter/spiciness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/grainy, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel; a bit on the thin side, but good. Slightly watery. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.2%. Overall this is a good witbier. All around good balance and robustness of dark/bready malt, spices, and light-moderate yeast ester flavors; very smooth, refreshing, and easy to drink. Surprisingly tasty for a gimmick beer; tastes like a balance between witbier and salted pretzel flavors. A nicely flavorful and enjoyable offering.

I loved this beer. Despite the other poor reviews, I still rate this as the best beer I have ever had. Maybe it’s my love of pretzels...

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 (5897) - 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.
