Pours slightly hazed light gold into a shaker. Bright white head crackles and recedes to hug rim. Sweet apple and cinnamon aromas. Dry and sharp with rancid apple and banana front to back. Lasting rotten banana finish.

1.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
This one I was a little excited for. I have had a honey-crisp apple before so the thought it being in a beer was something new. The smell is the first you notice. This beer is very aromatic and I was would highly suggest drinking this in a glass with a wide top lid so maximize on the scent. Now with that said the smell is very very sweet and I immediately thought of a Woodchuck cider which are too sweet for me. The taste luckily is not near as sweet as a Woodchuck but is sweet especially for a beer. There is an apple aftertaste that is distinctive which is nice because most specialty beers lose the flavor of the very thing that they are meant to taste like. Now with all the good sides across I did it a little sweet and cidery for me. To call this a beer is true but I think it could easily be mistaken for a dry cider. So I would call this one a beer for cider lovers or at least a starting point for them.

Pale golden. Small white head. Pretty nice apple aroma. Light body with carbonation. The taste is not that exciting. Some wheat, some apple, faintly sweet. It’s not really that bad but not sure what the point of it is, rather just have a cider.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear light yellow color with a thick foamy white head. Aroma of apple juice, ginger, sprite, and wheat. Taste is a mix of fresh apples and artificial apple drink, with cinnamon, ginger, honey, and wheat.

Pours hazy gold with large carbonated white head out of bottle. Very good apple smell but taste isn't that great. Dull apple wheat taste. Not a great beer.

Bottle. The diScription claims that this is a beer, cider mixture. It taste very much like apple. Color is a golden hazy color. Not all that good.

Definitely leans more cider than beer. It's not bad, but I can't imagine going through more than 1.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rated on 3-08-2013 (Bottle at Cap n’ Cork Covington Plaza, Fort Wayne, IN) This beer pours a small off-white head with a short retention, hazy body, one ring of lacing, fast rising carbonation, and a golden hue with a yellow tint. The Aroma is wheat, sweet, apples, semi-tart, and cider. The Taste is sweet, wheat, apples, semi-tart, and crisp. The Palate is smooth and this is a medium bodied beer. In conclusion, this beer is quaffable, worth trying, but I did not enjoy it enough to want to drink it again.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Taste like pure fizzy apple juice instead of beer. This did not appeal to me at all, in fact I poured the other 3 from the variety pack down the drain.
