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.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2014 OK this rating is embarrassing. I shouldn?t like a fruity beer this much. But it?s really just a good cider that is so much better than Woodchuck or Redd?s. Not sickeningly sweet and has a nice honeycrisp taste.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2014 Not my favorite beer, but better than the lemon shandy. On tap at the LA beer fest. Pours hazy yellow with small head. Apple cider flavor.

Aluminum can from 7-11: Poured a glowing yellow liquid that had a haze of sediment and a thick frothy foam cap head. Aroma is pure artificial apple and smells identical to apple flavored Jolly Rancher. The flavor is similar to a apple jolly rancher too but in a disturbing mutant 7-11 fake slurpee type of way. This is actually gross considering it is a beer.

Seriously anything less than an 8 for aroma is just anti-Budweiser bias. This smells amazing, like breaking the skin of a Golden Delicious apple with a hint of sweetness. The flavor amazingly tastes more like a cider than a beer and any wheat characters are pretty well masked by the sweetness. Overall this was surprisingly tasty.

Upon opening, the first thing you get is apples. Fairly carbonated with little head retention. Cloudy wheat beer with nice golden color. Aroma of apples and pear, some fresh cut grass. Apples all the way down with some flour notes on the finish. . Is just what it says and as I expected.

Had this a long time ago and didnít rate. From memory, aroma is apple and wheat. Flavor is apple and wheat.

Bottle from craft. It was ok. All their beers are thin in the body, but the fruits seem to taste real. Nice apple and wheat finish.

I canít say I was surprised as this pretty much met my expectations, which werenít high; however, it does adequately describe whatís in the bottle. Youíre hit in the face with apple and not much else. The color was light golden with a frothy head. Palate was thin and highly carbonated. This definitely was infused with cider or maybe just apple juice. Very one-sided and too sugary and soda-like. Judging by the cool orange slice with a mohawk and sunglasses, I was hoping for a party in my mouth. Didnít happen.

12 ounce bottle my buddy who is really into ciders bought, pours a dirty yellow, smells like jolly rancher candy. tastes like jolly rancher green apple candy as well with some slight sugary malt at the end, and I want to say thats a bad thing and hate this beer but as much of a fake Budweiser product its pretty drinkable and although I wouldnít search this out I would definitely drink it again.

Pours honey yellow with a tiny little head that fades as fast as soda. It smells like apple juice, pear juice, and candy. The taste is a mixture of apple juice and wheat. Itís very thin and sweet. Itís a good alternative to a super sweet sugary cider.
