Shock Top Belgian White

July 8th, 2011 by in Walt Disney World Beer Reviews

“Live life unfiltered.”

That’s the Shock Top slogan, and it’s easy to see why. This Belgian white ale is a cloudy yellow-orange because it’s not filtered before bottling. The brew is made by the Shock Top Brewing Company in Memphis, Tennessee, but further research shows that Shock Top is a subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch. Let’s judge the beer by its flavor instead of its affiliations though.

The first smell of Shock Top reveals a light citrus flavor, which corresponds to the taste rather well. Shock Top is a fairly sweet beer with flavors of honey and a bit of citrus. There’s not much bitterness in this beer; it’s crisp and refreshing though. The North American Beer Awards agreed, awarding Shock Top a gold medal in 2006 and a bronze medal in 2007 in the Belgian White category.

As of this writing, Shock Top can be found at the Belle Vue Lounge in Disney’s Boardwalk, a great place to relax, sit in a plush chair, and play board games while you drink!
