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.

Itís sweet, but itís good. The taste of apple is pretty overwhelming.. itís got some bitter fizz at the end, but itís a great summer beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I think this is a great beer for when you want something not bitter and refreshing. Very clean tasting with no bitter aftertaste. Medium sweetness, lightly bitter, average carbonation, light body,

>> Hazy straw pour, okay foam. Green apple Jolly Rancher nose all the way. Taste is green apple Jolly Rancher, mild tartness, spice, medium sugar. Drinkable, but kidsí candy forward, more a novelty for those that probably arenít into beer.

355ml twist off. Hazed gold pour, brewed with cider with honeycrsip apple flavor added? Wtf. Smells like apple candy. Falvor is sweet apple, some rotten apple character, bittersweetness, soapy. Not a good example.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 12OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- You can really smell the apple not much beer aroma
Appearance- This is a fairly nice looking murky off yellow color with a small white head
Taste - Has a very apple flavored taste with a small beer bite at the end. Not bad for me but many purists will probably not like.
Palate- A light bodied beer with moderate to heavy carbonation with a thin texture.
Overall - This is an ok beer, I prefer the original version of Shock Top in the Shock Top stable. I would say this is middle of the road.

This is not a beer at all, I donít know where is the Wheat or the Belgian yeast. It just taste like Apple juice, and smells like Apple juice.
