This beer pours with a finger and a half, fine-bubbled head. This head is fluorescent white head and dissolves quickly. This beer is a hazy, golden orange color. The nose is completely green apple. The initial taste is a strong, tart green apple morphing into a Jolly Rancher Sour Apple sort of sweet apple flavor. Acid and metal tastes are apparent. Fades to a simple, satisfying wheat flavor finish. It's a nice, crisp beer when you're in the mood for an easy drinking fruit beer.

Hazy orange with a modest rapidly receding white head. Some lace.
Smell is sweet apple tart.
Taste is honey apple crisp with some wheat.
Mouthfeel is light, Highly carbonated.
Overall a sweet tasty apple drink. Not much in common with beer. Nice sweet apple juice beverage.

This was very surprising and very good. Usually I enjoy Shiner when I have money and Coors when I don't but this has to be my new favorite beer Apple taste is not overwhelming and I would say kind of in the background of the beer. You do get a beer taste but the apple blends in very well. Highly recommended.
