This apple crips has a wonderful flavor. Can be drank year round. Awesome sitting next to a fire. Can be drank with meals or as an after dinner desert beverage.

Honestly, this beer just isn't for me, maybe it'd appeal more to someone else's palate but it just smelled sour and fermented(yes, I understand all beer is fermented), and tasted rank not quite sweet like a hard cider and not quite like a wheat beer, the concept just didn't work for me and my palate but hey maybe it'll work for yours.

Not as carbonated as a cider. Slightly sour taste. Overall pretty good.

Very refreshing. The crispness of the Apple is very present.

This is a sweet enjoyable after dinner drink that a non serious beer drinker will find non offensive. It is apple wheat beer mixed with apple cider. It has a good taste that is true to the name. I found it to be a good easy drinker. While this is a good average beer do not compare it to a cider. I am a huge hard cider fan and this tastes nothing like Woodchuck Cider or another reputable hard cider product. Bottom line is that is just a sweet easy drinking average beer that is great for a group of non beer drinkers.

I'm sitting with someone who is drinking one, so I figured I'd take a sip and do a little review.

This isn't worth pouring into a glass, just drink it from the bottle. The nose is that of apple cider, that's it. Apples apples apples. The taste is the same, apples. That's about it. Sickening sweet. There is no way I could finish a whole bottle, I'm sick of it after three sips.

Bottom line, if you like cider, maybe you'll find it decent enough, but really......just no.
