Appearance: Very pale apple juice. No foam, but there is some crisp carbonation.
Smell: Refreshing apple and a hint of sweet caramel; a great combination. Doesn't really smell like beer though.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Hard apple cider with some caramel malt in the background so you get the idea is it beer. Has a champagne flavor to it due to the yeast. Honestly, I found this very enjoyable, even as it warms a bit. Mouthfeel starts crisp but is a bit too sugary as it warms.
Overall Drinkability: A decent fall beer.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: Darker amber in color with an off white head. Mild lacing.
Smell: I could definitely smell apple, some hops were present too.
Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste almost too sweet for a beer, all sugary apple with some bitter hops to off set it.
Overall: Not the best beer I have ever had, not by a long shot. I would say that this was better than Shipyard's Applehead, but I think if I am going to buy something apple, I will just buy a good hard cider.

This beer is really for people who may like that apple taste to their beer. I bought the Shock Top variety case and this one was part of the batch. The best way to describe this beer was like drinking a Jolly Rancher Apple. I feel it smelled like a jolly rancher too. I personally didn't like it but some other people may love it. I just gave it an average rating to be fair. I didn't like it.

Nose, sweetness and wheat are prevalent, could have told you what it was without seeing the bottle, very good job on that, smells exactly like what it is.
Color, amber, looked very nice, was excited to take first taste.
Palate, disappointing...nothing wrong with it really, it tastes exactly like how it should, excellent blending in fact...I just now don't think cider belongs in a wheat beer, I think blending it with a light ale would have done better.

Pours hazed yellow with a think head. Some lacing sticks.
The smell is of candied apple, honey and wheat. Smells as it should, and pretty powerfully.
The taste is of sweet and sour notes - honey and apple with a clean finish.
It is crisp with a fuller side of light bodied. Not watery or fizzy.
This is a nice, crisp, easy-drinking, appley, honey-ish brew.
