Fresh, sweet apple aroma - somehow reminds me of childhood. The usual overwrought Shock Top label, but with little apples. Foggy gold. Twistoff bottle. Crisp, apple peel/core flavor, acidic and with zippy carbo. Sweet enouh without getting clingy. Tangy aftertaste. More appealing (get it) than most ciders. ABC, Betton.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, white head, over a hazy, dark yellow (SRM 4) body....nose is heavy apple, light banana bubblegum.....taste is heavy apple, lighter banana/bubblegum, hints of vanilla, medium sweet throughout, light apple sour on the finish...mouth feel light of medium, carbonation high with extensive tingle on the tongue. The apple adjuncts were used with a relatively heavy hand, and as a result dominate completely. There are some interesting aromas and flavors that might have come forward to make this a better and more interesting beer. BJCP 7/3/10/4/5

12oz bottle 2/14/13 41į in Flute-Pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma of apple. Taste of apple. This is a not bad wheat which would hit the spot on a hot day.

johnnyoski (443) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy, light yellow pour with a thin, fizzy white head. Tart cider aroma. Sour apple flavor with a bitter, puckering finish. Average carbonation and light bodied. I like a good fruit beer once in a while, but this isnít one I would recommend.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2014 great smell, slightly cloudy, flavor is lighter than the smell, very slight beer after taste. quite good! Had in a can the second time and aroma was much lower...not sure if that made the difference....also tastes more like beer than my first rating lets on....x2

Bottle. Fresh sweet -tart ripe apples. Smells like a cider. Cloudy golden yellow with a moderate white head. Wheat malt and sweet-tart apple flavor. Light body, lively carbonation. Shocking! A Shock Top I actually like, but then Iím a big cider fan.

An unfiltered fruit beer and that is what you have. Light golden and cloudy in appearance, the apple smell is strong. The apple then carries through to the taste. Hop Heads, this is not for you. However if you are looking for something crisp and sweet consider this as a nice alternative to the standard cider

Smells like green jolly ranchers. Cloudy yellow like a typical wheat beer. tastes like green jolly ranchers and a little wheat. The palate is actually alright kinda a creamy mouth feel. Overall i was not expecting it to be good what so ever, but its an alright beer, not great by any means but definitely better than i was expecting

degbert (1153) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Bottle. Overwhelming nose of Jolly Rancher green apple. Pours a hazy gold with a high, fine-grained, and persistent head. Nowhere near as sweet as I expected from the nose, but thereís still a definite green apple candy note, overlaying a pretty standard wheat beer palette. Finish is long and tart. Itís all right.

Bottle. Cloudy orange color. Smells of ape, spice and wheat. Really interesting. Like a apple wheat beer. Unique ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
