poursa semi-clear orange with a medium size white head that goes away but not completely, and pretty good lacing. smell is of apple, musty, and some yeast. taste is of sour green apple, a little sweetness in the back, and yeast. ends dry. more like a cider to me. dont see what the big hype is with all the kiddie drinking this all of a sudden.

Kroger bottle. Golden, large white head. As soon as it popped I smelled an apple jolly rancher. Holy shit is the aroma strong. Taste is similar. Too sweet up front. Yuck. This is what dropping an apple jolly rancher in beer would be like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 4/7/2016. Pours hazy golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of tart green apples, lemon, orange peel, pear, coriander, clove, light pepper, wheat, cracker, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, apple/spices, and moderate pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of tart green apples, lemon, orange peel, pear, coriander, clove, light pepper, wheat, cracker, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light fruit tartness and herbal/yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of tart green apples, lemon, orange peel, pear, coriander, clove, light pepper, wheat, cracker, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, apple/spices, and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/tart/spiciness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light dryness from tart/spiciness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/grainy, fairly crisp, and lightly acidic/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.2%. Overall this is a good fruited witbier style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, apple/spices, and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, refreshing, and fairly crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

De geur is net als een fruitsap, zeer zoet en lekker. Een mooie schuimkraag, de kleur mooi blond. De smaak is zoals een goed appelbier zoals newton.

Bottle, sampled at Medicine Hat Beerfest 2016. Fizzy pale gold, apple candy aroma and flavour, sweet and soda-like. I dont like soda to begin with, let alone as a beer.

Cripsy, yes. Apple, yes. Artificial, yes. Sure does attract these pecker gnats with its false hope aroma.

Pours gold with fizzy white head. Apple cider aroma... Sweet apple flavor. Like an apple Shandy... My wife who does not like beer thought it was good... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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. Its 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. Its okay. Too metallic in the taste. Would not buy it again, probably would not recommend it.

Bire couleur paille, voile, avec une belle mousse. Nez de pommes sucres surtout. Bouquet de cidre de pomme je dirais. En bouche, cest un peu trop sucr pour quon puisse parler de bire blanche de style belge. La pomme sucre est tellement en vidence, quoi quun peu chimique, que toutes les filles la fte ont bien aim... Cheers !

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. Im not an Inbev hater, but this was almost undrinkable.
