UPDATED: JUN 2, 2013 Bottle at my nephew’s birthday party. Nose is tart apples, flowers, and cinnamon. Murky yellow with a medium green tinged head. Flavor is lightly tart and fruity with apple and pineapple notes. A pretty decent session beer. Basically tastes like a nice crisp tart cider.

Bottle at James’s 4k/5k/10k tasting. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Smells like hard apple candies. Tangy apple over a big amount of grain. Dirty grain. Tart on the finish, with a bit of sweetness. Not terrible.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy and hazy Apple Cider/Yellow color. Small White head that only lasts for a few seconds. Aroma is of a strong Apple scent. Little to no carbonation. Taste is of Sour Apple. A little light and watery, with a tart aftertaste. Not bad on a hot day. A good beer made by Shock Top. Would probably have given this one an even higher rating if there was some carbonation in it though, because tastes more like a wine cooler than a beer without the carbonation, but it’s still good!!

Had it on tap at Loafers in Chicago, poured a cloudy yellow color, with a medium head and no lacing. The aroma had an apple fruity smell, and the taste was very sweet. Good on a summer day!

Smells and tastes like a sour apple jolly rancher. Not bad on a hot day, but tough to have more than one or two. Tart and sweet, and full of apple flavor.

Hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is very heavy on the apples with a light bit of tartness. Flavor is more of the same. I get some wheat and apple notes. There is a light bit of tartness in the flavor. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
