Shock Top - Belgian White (forget about it)

Whatever you do, do not buy Shock Top (Belgian White) beer.

It is supposed to be a Belgian style beer with citrus peels and coriander. It is not. In my mental catalog, it will be registered as 'just a beer' and claims to the contrary are pure marketing and shrewdness.

Shock Top is a washed-out beer without consistent and clear flavors. I chilled a six pack overnight and was expecting a beer with mystery and weight. It is a beer with a strong sour after taste and with very few detectable flavors of either citrus peels or coriander.

Believe it or not, I would drink Stella Artois over Shock Top (Belgian White) any day of the week.
