Shock Top Belgian White

Got it on tap at Ledo Pizza. I think I might have had Shock Top at a restaurant before, or perhaps had a taste of someone else's Shock Top. In any case, I recall enjoying it. Though, for some reason, like the Shock Top Raspberry Wheat, I don't have any recorded thoughts on it.


The Shock Top at Ledo Pizza was a delicious ale and appropriate for the summer. Of course, Shock Top is a beer which is enjoyable year-round. It has an orange sort of flavor. It was a very satisfying drink, considering I had just biked several miles. Note that I was thirsty, despite having exhausted the whole two liters of water contained in my CamelBak during the ride.

Beer Style: Belgian-style wheat ale
Description: As an unfiltered Belgian-style wheat ale, this beer is naturally cloudy with a light golden color.

Glassware Suggestions: The beer 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.
