Commercial Description

Shock Top Belgian White is best enjoyed in a tall, wide-mouthed glass. To serve the brew perfectly, follow these pouring guidelines. Pour the brew down the side of the glass until about one-half inch of brew is left in the bottle. Lay the bottle on its side and roll it gently back and forth, mixing the remaining yeast that has settled at the bottom. Pour the rest of the brew, producing a nice, thick collar of foam.

    My first encounter with a Shock Top product as they have only been available recently in Montreal. Let's get to it.

    473ml tall can served chilled in a snifter:

    Pours a cloudy golden with orange accents holding vivid micro carbs. The head is about three fingers of an eggshell that has moderate retention.

    The nose is mostly yeasty with notes of orange and grapefruit. The yeasts provide a sweaty feature not so awesome and I didn't spot a spicy/cilantro element usually (though not obligatory) found in a white.

    On the tongue you are attacked by a legion of yeasts right off the bat followed by a floral orange zest flavour. The brew feels foamy/vapory and quickly disintegrates leaving nothing behind.

    The orange definetely dominates this Witbier and it does comes out good, but overall I found the yeasts were too strong and put the flavours off. Good, but I had better. Cheers!

    nice overall but for me just a bit to much citrus taste for me to drink more then 2 or 3 at one sitting. It's at the end of a mouthful that I get the real citrus taste."

    Great Summer Beer! The citrus overtones gives it a crisp and clean finish. Not as good when served as a draft. Better in the bottle with the pouring guidelines followed.
