Loved this Beer! It has a sweet apple taste that is to die for. It is different from most beers with its lively fruitful taste with just a hint of Wheat. The Aroma is just as lovely as the taste.

12oz twist-off bottle. Yellow color, white fizz. Smells of green apple candy. Tastes of wheat with green apple extract. Tart flavor. I feel sorry for anyone who buys more than 6 of these... (3665)

Poured up a hazy goldish orange. Smells of apples as I would have expected and it made me kind of think this might be pretty good. I was wrong. The taste is just what this is, a apple cider mixed with a wheat brew. The two just dont seem to come together well. Glad I only purchased a sample bottle. Really dont want to drink any more of these.

Pours a hazy gold with lots of carbonation. Very strong sour/ granny smith apple aroma. Strong apple flavor with a hint of wheat. Very acidicy beer.

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 arent too hot. T: This may well be cider, with its big sweetness and apple flavors, but theres 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 thats 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 its so damn sweet that it kills drinkability - and it cant 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, doesnt do either the cider or the beer aspect well enough to appeal to discerning craft beer/cider drinkers (plus the whole "its made by AB-InBev" thing). Not bad for a malternative, though.

Hazy, yellow-gold pour with a white head. The aroma is very fruity with the smell of freshly sliced apples dominating. It has a light body with a slightly sticky texture and lively carbonation. The taste is sweet and crisp, but with an obvious cider quality. This is an interesting brew and worth a try.

Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Holy shit... really wasnt prepared for that flavor... Pours a dull straw with fair offwhite head. Aroma is actually quite pleasant - perfumy sour apple. But the flavor just pushes the limit on what I can tolerate in a beer. This tastes EXACTLY like a green jolly rancher has been melted down and distilled. Sour and puckering but in a fake medicinal way. Maybe, under the perfect circumstances, I might be willing to drink more than a few sips.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Bottled. Poured cloudy, straw golden with a well-retained white head. The aroma picked up lots of mostly sweet apples and not a whole lot else.. some earthy notes and wheat as well.. no real complaints. The flavor found tangy and sweet apples throughout, with a pale malt and wheaty base.. some watery apple juice on the middle.. finished with a little apple tang and prickly carbonation. Light-bodied with filling carbonation on the palate.. this lost its way on the middle, but was otherwise serviceable.

Pours hazy golden into the glass, with a fizzy head that leaves no real retention and mild spotty lacing. The nose is of apple cider. Flavors are of cider, some very reserved wheat traces, a little spice toward the apple pie finish. The mouthfeel is seltzery and the body medium-thin with overactive carbonation. Its certainly the macro take on a hard style to get right in the first place, but it serves its purpose and provides a novelty that even I might enjoy from time to time. Too much might be a tad cloying; thankfully, a little goes a long way.

Bottle. Poured hazy amber hue with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet apple spice aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium smooth sweet spice flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.
