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

Poured 12oz bottle into snifter glass. 5.2% abv

Appearance- Pours a Dull honey yellow with high white head fast to dissipate. Very hazy

Smell- Tart green apple. apple juice, wheat

Taste- Starts off much like cider. Sulfite flavor with a big kick of green apple tartness. Not much unlike an apple jolly rancher. Apple crispness starts to fade into a dry lingering finish with wheat malt tastes.

Mouthfeel- Medium-thin in body with medium carbonation.

Overall-A bit too cider like, but made good use of apple and provided a solid wheat finish.

Much better than expected. A little sweet, but not overwhelming. An easy drinker.

Find this to be a little bit too carbonated.
