After being pleasantly surprised by Shock Top Belgian White, I had to ruffle through my fridge in order to find the other Shock Top offering I obtained from one of Wal-Mart's make-your-own-six-pack stands. God bless those stations, seriously...
Shock Top Honeycrisp Apple Wheat is definitely going to be a go-to offering for a simultaneously sweet and tart offering without having to tolerate a frothy cider or the backlash of alcohol and artificiality from one of the Bud Light Lime Ritas. It's tart, but not overly-tart, inviting, and tangy enough that it actually makes a solid attempt to combat Anheuser-Busch's dreaded over-carbonation of this line (or at least the two I've experienced).
Appearance - a hazy orange/yellow. Simple, yeah, but provides us with more of a promising visual than other offerings.
Smell - Smells of honeysuckle and strong sour green apple. Looking good so far, smelling even better.
Taste - Tart, carbonated, and of sour green apples, as expected. Goes down nice and easy, but unexpectedly satisfying and fulfilling.
Mouthfeel - Foams very quickly, on the count of the carbonation, but very easy to savor and let simmer in your mouth thanks to its great flavor.
Overall - I am stunned by how much I'm enjoying this line of beer. For once, this doesn't seem to be a basic marketing ploy but a genuine attempt at creating a solid beer with flavor, good consistency, and surprise. Sucked this one down in less than five minutes and wish I had another.
