3.44/5  rDev +11.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Aggressive pour yields a murky medium golden color with a dense 2 inch ivory head that lingers indefinitely.

Huge apple aroma erupts from the bottle. Cinnamon and wheat add intrigue.

Flavor reveals heavy apple character, almost candy-like, sweet and tart, with an underlying lightly sweet malt and wheat backbone. Cinnamon and nutmeg turn this beer into apple pie.

Body is a touch light, with moderate carbonation.

Overall, reminds me of a cider, with less tartness. Spices are reminiscent of winter brews, but not as bold.

Hazy orange with a modest rapidly receding white head. Some lace.
Smell is sweet apple tart.
Taste is honey apple crisp with some wheat.

Overall a sweet tasty apple drink. Not much in common with beer. Nice sweet apple juice beverage.

This was very surprising and very good. Usually I enjoy Shiner when I have money and Coors when I don't but this has to be my new favorite beer Apple taste is not overwhelming and I would say kind of in the background of the beer. You do get a beer taste but the apple blends in very well. Highly recommended.

Had this at a party, not a fan of regular shock top but wa inticed by the bright green can. Strong strong smell of apple juice. Tastes completely like jolly ranchers, the sour appeared flavor. Kind of smells like it too. Is this actually beer? I'm pretty sure its just candy.

Wasn't impressed with this version of Shock Top. Got a sixxer on the way home from work. Sipped the first one in the bottle while watching a storm roll in across the plains of oklahoma.

I poured the second into a glass. Pours yellow and thick, the color of chicken broth with a 3 inch white head that lasted 5-6 minutes. Smelled of apples and a very slight hint of cinnamon. Tastes like apple juice. Not the wheat ale taste I expected. Not much of anything there. Light clove and cinnamon.

Tastes compares to a knock off of Angry Orchard Apple Ale.
Don't waste your money

Update; worst guy bust in diarhea ever. Woke me up from a dead sleep duargea
