Tap Handle #620: Anheuser-Busch - Shock Top Spiced Banana Wheat

Tap size:  12"
Rarity:  limited release
Mounting:  internal 3/8" nut

This is the eighth Shock Top tap to appear on the site, and it's one of the best to date. The Shock Top character sports the familiar striped mohawk, but in this case it sits on a head that is a peeled banana. Sliced pieces of banana sit around stalks of wheat, while bunches of whole bananas make up the base of the tap. It's a very creative and great-looking tap. Although Spiced Banana Wheat a limited release, the tap isn't too rare - you can usually find one on the secondary market - but this is probably one the most expensive Shock Top taps (behind the End of the World Midnight Wheat and the Pretzel Wheat).

First released in 2014, Shock Top Spiced Banana Wheat is a limited edition, full-bodied, sweet treat that combines the flavors of caramel malts, honey, brown sugar and bananas. The result is a Belgian-style unfiltered wheat ale with a smooth, creamy caramel finish, sweet bananas aroma and subtle hopping for a full flavor experience.
