This beer tastes exactly like those candy sour gummy rings, the green apple flavored ones. so of course the beer tastes good but it's also overwhelming after a few drinks of it because it's so sweet and tart (I even started drinking an IPA before i finished this beer to cut down on the sweetness and sorta even out my taste buds).
Just like you wouldn't eat a whole bag of the candy, you wouldn't want to drink a whole six pack.

Sampled the Canadian version of this, as brewed by the fine folks at Labatt. The apple is relatively dialed back and pleasant - certainly not the worst beer I've ever tried. Definitely a"summer sipper" that will suffice if there is nothing else on hand.

Not a bad apple beer/cider. Drinkable and refreshing. Better than angry orchard which I find too carbonated.

A murky drink that is more cider than beer, the Honeycrisp Apple Wheat is disappointing considering that Shock Top usually does pretty well with other wheat beers.

Look: Poured into a pint glass and the foam dissipated within a minute. The look is murky does not look like a pleasant drink.

Smell: It smells like an acrid cider and nothing like a wheat beer.

Taste: Too sweet and acidic at the same time and no hint of the wheat flavor whatsoever.

Feel: A little syrupy, but overall a decent, carbonated feel.

Overall: Had to eat with this drink to get rid of the aftertaste. I'm not a huge cider fan, but this tasted worse than most I've tried.

Es un híbrido muy raro, la sidra domina completamente el sabor, el olor es dulce y agradable, a la vista se ve de un color dorado opaco y no tiene nada de corona de espuma, a mi parecer es muy amarga y no se alcanza a sentir el alcohol
