Shock Top Raspberry Wheat

An error was drinking this beer from the bottle and not from a glass. Probably missed out on all the aromas and such. Oh well. I recall not liking the taste, but I don't have any record of my thoughts.

I found the record of my thoughts.* It was hiding as a draft text message. I wrote:
"Raspberry Shock Top smelled good. Tastes alright. Actually weird tasting. Verging on bad. At least bad aftertaste. Apricot Sea Dog is much better."

I wrote: "I can smell the raspberry as I pour. I rolled the bottle, but I didn't produce a nice thick collar of foam. First sip was alright. But the second sip was terrible." 2:20 AM
I wrote: "Somehow I'm able to keep sipping the beer but find it disgusting. Yeah... The aromas are nice, but the taste isn't. Maybe the aftertaste is okay. Overall avoid this beer." 2:31 AM
Perhaps the taste doesn't linger long, making short sips of the beer acceptable.

I poured this much down the drain.
