2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle says 5.2%. Poured into a Samuel Smith pint glass.
A: Pours a hazy golden color. The head is a quick-fading two finger white shade. Not the most aesthetically pleasing brew.
S: Is this beer, or is it cider? There are strong apple tones throughout, along with a bit of tartness and some diacetyl. Jolly Ranchers come instantly to mind here. The minor beer qualities here arenít too hot.
T: This may well be cider, with its big sweetness and apple flavors, but thereís also some finishing diacetyl that I could do without. The malty finish tries to balance some of the cider sweetness...only it turns it into beery sweetness thatís a bit more unpleasant. None of the advertised spices come through well.
M: Thick and sweet, as expected. Lots of carbonation, too. The problem here is that itís so damn sweet that it kills drinkability - and it canít get away with it the way a pure commercial cider like Angry Orchard can.
O: I totally get this point of this product, combining a sweet apple cider with a generic witbier - the problem is it tries to be everything to everyone, and as a result, doesnít do either the cider or the beer aspect well enough to appeal to discerning craft beer/cider drinkers (plus the whole "itís made by AB-InBev" thing). Not bad for a malternative, though.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle pour at the Fairfield Budweiser plant. It pours a clear yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is a dead ringer for apple jolly ranchers. The flavor is the same. Syrupy, sugary sweet candy apple. Thick on the palate with a medicinal, artificial quality to it. Iím not an Inbev hater, but this was almost undrinkable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a yellow fizzy with mild foam head. Aroma is hop and malt with strong scent of Apple and honey. Taste is like drinking a Budweiser brewed with a hard cider. Strong taste of sweet apple like a jolly rancher. I wonít drink it again. By the way this is not a craft beer even though it is advertised as craft.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Got this one in a six pack prize at the work Christmas party. The other five beers werenít much better. Pours a hazy, golden with lots of head. Smells like apple juice and tastes like apple juice with a tart and dry finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Tick hunting here. Almost clear with a noisy fizzy almost white head that didnít last long. The aroma is full of the apples and is nice. The apple taste leads and is generally sweet. Soft malts and a little wheat. Light cinnamon. Very light drinking.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle: Poured a super light yellow color ale with a small bubbly head with limited retention. Aroma of fake apple notes with sweet notes. Taste is also dominated by fake green apple notes with some adjunct notes. Body is light with OK carbonation. Quite terrible with no real wheat notes.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Didnít have great expectations... and it confirms my feelings: crap! It pours murky yellowish, aroma of artificial apple gummy. Taste confirms this artificial apple syrup poured into a glass of the most commercial Belgian ale. Malty, sugary, way too sweet. Rubbish is the word!
