Review: Shock Top End of the World Midnight Wheat Beer
On December 21, 2012, the world will end. Drinkmakers are taking advantage of this by producing special tipples to get you through the apocalypse. Shock Top is wearing the End of Days right on its paper label, with its End of the World Midnight Wheat limited edition beer.
This just shipped last week, and it’s an unfiltered wheat beer made with chocolate malt and Mayan chili spice. This brew is pungent, a dark and ruddy red/brown with an appropriately hazy look to it. There’s big wheat and rye here, with lots of coffee notes. The body offers chewy bread, hay, and a barreled whiskey flavor. Slightly sour on the finish, just like the apocalypse.
