3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle available in grocery stores all across America. Why do I feel the need to buy the newest Shock Top beers whenever they show up? Morbid curiosity, maybe? Pours cloudy orange-yellow with a quickly collapsing white head. Aroma is predominantly cider with a bit of wheat in the background, with floral perfumey notes and maybe some Off mosquito repellant--or maybe this beer conjures up summertime memories for whatever reason. Tastes like a cider but has the mouthfeel of a wheat beer. This is pretty odd. I canít say it tastes bad, because it doesnít. There is a slight chemical off-note that isnít too distracting, really. Mouthfeel is creamy like a nice wheat beer. Not bad for a Shock Top, but I still feel a little lame drinking this.

Big can purchased at a convenience store in Richmond, VA. Crisp but probably too sweet. Rather flat with no great appeal.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
bottle - This brew smells like an apple jolly rancher. It tastes very sweet with lots of apple flavoring. Itís almost like candy. Thereís not much evidence of a Belgian wit here. Itís not horrible but it certainly seems pointless.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a medium deep straw color with a frothy head. Aromas of jolly rancher apple, straw and slight grain in the background. Flavors of jolly rancher apple upfront (taste artificial but still tasty), slight straw. Medium sweet. The artificial apple covers every other flavor mostly. Its a aroma/flavor hog. Like a liquid jolly rancher.

Honestly not bad. The base beer seemed fine but the flavoring tasted artificial.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Childrenís strawberry flavored medicne aroma, jolly rancher green apple underneath. Cloudy golden, thick head. Jolly rancher apple flavor, stale malt. Bubble gum overtones. Slightly fizzy, but not as bad as most macro beers. Not much in the way of witbier qualities, then again, itís not really beery at all. Regardless, this was enjoyable and refreshing. It isnít cider. It isnít beer. It isnít even alcopop. Itís something new. Despite itís artificiality, I liked it.

Cloudy golden color with decent apple aroma. Flavor seemed artificial to me. Body was solid. Average in total.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Pours out a straw color topped with a white head. Nose is green apple jolly ranchers and cinnamon. Taste is more of the fake green apple taste along with some sweetness.
