Smells like sour apple juice. Pours murky orange/yellow with a thin head. Taste is too much apple, mixed in with a sour beer note.

This beer has the appearance of a typical unfiltered wheat. It is light gold with a cloudy whiteness to it. It smells strongly like cider but has a hint of beer aroma. It tastes more like beer than you would expect from the aroma but still has a distinct sweetness of apples to it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Cloudy golden with a small white head and not a whole lot of lacing. Aroma of apple and grain. Taste is basically apples, lots of them... some wheat in there too, very sweet. makes for a refreshing beverage not too bad.

Draft to taster. Looks okay; a hazy dark gold with thin white lacing. Smells of apple cider. Tastes like it smells, only not as good, with a light wheat presence and an average mouthfeel. Meh.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 I didn’t have high hopes with this one based on previous Shock Top varieties. Cloudy, light colored beverage. I was encouraged by this because i just don’t understand why cider in the fall is a deep amber color, but hard cider bought from the store looks like pale champagne. Aroma is cider. Has a quite good aroma...if it were a cider. Not much beer in the scent. This brew’s flavor is slightly tart and dry, with a hint of mediocre witbier peeking through. Together this amounts to a cider with a backbone. I like it, and would buy again. If they paired the cider with a better and more flavorful beer, then they’d really have something.

5/26/13. 12iz bottle. I did not intend to rate this right now. I bought this from Total Wine only to tick and when I got home the stupid cap had leaked half the bottle out. I took two warm sips and thre this garbage away. Lame fake sweet apple spiced bullshit. Fuck AB.

Bottle: Drank from the bottle. Aroma was strong with apple. Taste was a sour apple syrup mess.
