Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton. Pours a murky medium orange with a very brief off-white head. Aroma is that of Apple Jacks cereal and apple flavored Bubble Yum - pleasant but very artificial. Flavor tastes like an ultra-sweet apple cider, some sour granny smith notes, green apple Now-or-Later flavor candy - no real wheat beer attributes to it. Mouthfeel is thick enough. About what I expected.

Dang error, erased everything I wrote

Pours an apple cider color. Sligjtly cloudy, hazy, unfiltered. One finger off white head. No retention, no lacing.

Aroma is apple, very apple. Sweet, very sweet. Are little wheaty. Smells like cider.

Taste is apple, somewhat tart. Wheat and apples. It’s also quite metallic. Metallic flavor is perhaps dominating the flavor.

Mouthfeel is medium light. Metallic and tart. Semi dry. Tart and metallic.

Overall, going from memory here. Not a particular fan. It’s okay. Too metallic in the taste. Would not buy it again, probably would not recommend it.

Bière couleur paille, voilée, avec une belle mousse. Nez de pommes sucrées surtout. Bouquet de cidre de pomme je dirais. En bouche, c’est un peu trop sucré pour qu’on puisse parler de bière blanche de style belge. La pomme sucrée est tellement en évidence, quoi qu’un peu chimique, que toutes les filles à la fête ont bien aimé... Cheers !

Bottle - Pours pale gold, white head. Apple cider smell... hint of lightly baked bread. Flavors of light roasted wheat, fruity..apple cider. Very light hops end.

joeneugs (5751) - Livermore, California, USA - JUN 24, 2016
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. I’m not an Inbev hater, but this was almost undrinkable.

Tommygun453 (40) - California, USA - MAY 17, 2016
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 won’t drink it again. By the way this is not a craft beer even though it is advertised as craft.

Pours a cloudy yellow with fizzy head. Aromas of fruit, grass, and apples. Flavors of light apple, yeast, and hay.

Got this one in a six pack prize at the work Christmas party. The other five beers weren’t 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.
