I've had this beer before but decided to pick up a sixer for review.

Appearance (3.75) : In my Miller pint glass, it pours just about three fingers of creamy white head. The body is a hazy golden color characteristic of wheat beers. Opacity is about 60%. Lacing is here and there in thick hoops.

Aroma (3.75) : Green Apple licorice, with some granny smith and faint apple candy (jolly rancher). Very fruity, very apple-y.

Taste (3.5) : The nucleus is sweet apple and wheat, a hint of pepper...but if I could draw a picture, with a circle around the nucleus it would be made of water. The flavor seems to be floating in the middle of a sea of water and carbonation...so distant, but still there. The more you drink it, the more your awareness of the taste grows. From the bottle it seems to be somewhat more direct.

Mouthfeel (3) : Watery, light, heavily carbonated. Lightly dry on the finish.

Overall (3.49) : A little more watery than I'd like. The flavor profile could be bolder but what's there is decent. There's sweet and sour apple, with a candy-like sweetness, again like a jolly rancher; and an undertone of wheat. Overall it's an easy drinking, tasty beer. There's never really a bad time for one exactly, but it's like all macros - they have their place but are not exceptional in any category. It's worth picking up a sixer for friends who are beer shy, they may like it.

Not a bad combination of wheat and apple flavoring. It's one of my favorites from A.B.
