It definitely tastes like artificial apple flavor. Not much in terms of a wheat beer.

Dahliaís rbwg! Hazy milky straw color white head. Aroma of sour apple candy not real apples. Still smells good though. Taste of tart sour apple, artificial. Tasty and very drinkable but more a beer cocktail than a beer.

Bottle. Pours a decent cheddar orange with a nose of apple-infused Sprite, light seltzered honey, and a touch of mango. Flavor is carbonated apple, light mango, a smidgen of papaya, and a finish of honey. Lively on the tongue. Dang the haters. This ainít bad.

The aroma of this beer is so heavenly that words can hardly describe it. The taste falls a little short of the smell but still very good.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
