3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I’m not a big cider fan, I am however a big wheat fan.
I also do not care for shock top regular wheat.
Apple flavor is pronounced, but not even close to being overbearing.
Good aroma, still retains the crispness of what a beer should be.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Purchased a 6-pack on the way back from playing a few US gigs. As always, hard to imagine A-B owns Shock Top, as these are pretty good summer fruit wheat beers. Pours a cloudy golden colour with high carbonation, creating a white head that stays a while and coats the top of the brew with a 3mm of foam. Smells like freshly squeezed apple juice with hints of spices. The taste is sweet, but not as much as the nose gives out to be. It does have this apple crisp taste with the apples and spices. All nicely balanced with the Belgian yeast, wheat and hops. Almost creamy mouthfeel. I like this one, but could probably not drink too many in a row as it is sweeter then most fruit beers.

Shock Top Honey Apple Crisp has a thin, quickly-dying head, a dark golden, apple juice appearance, with lots of bubbles (etched tasting glass), and not much lacing left behind. The aroma and taste are of apple flavor, sugar, and children’s sugary breakfast cereal. Mouthfeel is heavy and chewy, and Shock Top Apple Crisp finishes sweet and chunky. Overall, this will appeal to those who prefer sweet, flavored beer-based products, and will be hated by those who prefer the traditional taste of beer. RJT

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, slightly hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of apple, slight caramel, toffee, hints of vanilla, lots of sugary notes. Taste is a mix of sweet apple, vanilla, slight caramel, hints of sugar, finishing sweet, sugary. About what I expected.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a hazy yellow-light orange with a thick foamy head. Overwhelming apple aroma, like a green jolly rancher. Tastes pretty much like a alcoholic green jolly rancher with a rancid aftertaste. Fizzy palate.

A delicious summer time beer! Crisp, refreshing, honestly it reminds me of Martinellis sparkling cider but boy does it give me a great buzz!

12oz bottle, snatched from a friend’s fridge. Code on the bottle is "13044BFG7". Twist-off, poured into a snifter. Mostly hazy golden color. Thin white head. Some respectable, splotchy mountains of lace. Medium body. Kind of soft, moderate strength carbonation. Kind of dry in the finish. Tart apples in the aroma, apple skins, light spice. Lightly tart taste, light spice, light sweet. Very light macro-wheat bite. Better than expected. Tart apple and spice flavors work well together. Just a typical light bite in the texture and taste
