mybeerbuzz.com–Macro Watch–ShockTop Raspberry Wheat NEW

image image

Yes I do like to follow along to see what new “craft” beers are coming out of the big boys like Anheuser-Busch, so today I present a NEW beer in their Shock-Top series called Raspberry Wheat.  I have a sneaking suspicion I know what this one will taste like (“Unfiltered Belgian-style wheat ale brewed with citrus peels, and coriander and with raspberry essence added”), but I was really interested in not only bringing it to you first here on mybeerbuzz.com BUT also interested in showing off the two labels.  Note that one is 5% ABV and one is “Not more than 3.2% by Weight.”  Huh?!

  3. Colorado is also a blue law state that only allows full strength beer to be sold in liquor stores. Anything sold in grocery/convenience is 3.2% by weight (not by volume) which, when converted to volume, comes out to 4.0%.

  5. I just had the 5.0 tonight in FL and had to force myself to finish it, this almost never happens with beer, the Raspberry is way to fake tasting.
