Got this as part of a sampler pack with Shock Top's Lemon shandy and Belgian white.
No comment on appearance since I did not really note the color when I had this (late review). In terms of smell the only thing I can think of to describe it is jolly rancher green apple. Overly sweet, artificial, and overpowering. Smelling it is almost like doing a rail of "apple" flavored sugar cocaine. No hint of beer at all. More of a juice than anything. If you made me smell this and didn't tell me what it was I would think It was some new sugary kids drink. The taste is just as overpoweringly sweet. Think candy juice spiked with sugary. I will try and finish just about everything and I like my sweets just as much as the kid down the street, but to me this is just too much. Almost didn't finish this. Have a few more bottles laying around that I unfortunaly may pour down the drain.

I bought a six-pack of Shock Top Honeycrisp Apple Wheat in a grocery store. Poured in to a pint glass.
Pours a pale yellow color, cloudy, about like pineapple juice.
Smell is decidedly apple. An authentic apple aroma and not much else. More of a juice arma than a beer.
Taste is a tart apple flavor, with a hint of cereal flavor in the background. Mild bitterness.
Mouthfeel is as crisp and clean as thin apple cider.
Overall not terrible, but not great. It might be competing with the apple ales (Red's) and apple ciders (Angry Orchard) on the market.
