good beer but way to sweet, maybe serve it with some sharp cheddar cheese to level things off. would drink it again, but wouldn't go out of way to purchase it again,

I picked this up after a recent meeting at work at my in-laws. It was all the beer they had, and although I didn't really want to drink it, I did want a brew, and did not want to come across as a beer snob. So I drank it.

Appearance - Pours a hazy amber color with a small head that dissipates rapidly and leaves little lacing. No real surprise with the packaging here, standard Shock Top fare.

Smell - Smells of apples, sugar, and little else.

Taste - Very similar to the nose. Tastes like a liquefied apple mixed with beer, certainly has a strong apple punch. There certainly is very little other than the apple flavor, although it is decent.

Mouthfeel - Finishes like every other Anheuser-Busch product you've pretty much ever drank.

Overall - If you like apples, you can drink one. I wouldn't turn it down if offered so I don't come across as a snob, but I would never buy it.

You can really taste the Apple upfront like a cider but then has the finish of a traditional wheat beer

Great apple smell, strong apple taste. A bit too bubbly in the mouth. Not very beer like, but ok nonetheless

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. No readable freshness date.

A- Pours a hazy medium amber color with a 1/4 inch off-white head that retains a bit before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a tiny center patch of bubbly surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind.

S- Jolly Rancher apple aroma with a bit of stale beer booze aroma on the backend that's not complementary.

T- The Jolly Rancher flavor continues and there's a macro adjunct beer flavor that accompanies it. Not good. Way too sweet and I don't detect any wheat.

M- Well, at least the "crisp" part of the name lives up to the feel. Medium carbonation and a light body.

O- This barely qualifies as beer. This is clearly marketed toward the college crowd looking for something sugary sweet to sip on that'll get them drunk. What sucks is I can't even cook with the remainder of the beer in my glass I don't want to drink because I can't think of any recipe that would call for candy apple flavored beer.

Found this in my fridge from a party back in may (eek). This tastes just like a jolly rancher candy. While I do love sweet girly beers this one is just not my thing. Will not be trying this again
