HAPPY HALLOWEEN (again).
This was supposed to be the beer that I liked the most:
Instead, I thought it was gross. Definitely the worst pumpkin beer I’ve tried yet.
Why did I think I’d like it the best? Because I’m a fan of Shock Top Belgian White. I even proactively order it when I go out sometimes. And I love me a good, wheaty beer. During college, I was obsessed with Hefeweizen. OB. SESSED.
But maybe, I’m learning, it’s really just the orange slice that I like about Shock Top. Oranges rock.
A “orangey-cinnamon” aroma along with a “orangey-plastic” taste left one taster cold. Another said it was “not terribly enticing” and found the “foamy/fizzy mouth feel” left an “indistinct taste impression.” “It’s like Bud Light,” said a third. We all agreed there are better pumpkin beers.
Anyway, there isn’t much to review because I basically took three sips then waited five minutes, took another sip, then poured it down the drain.
