look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Pours a pale, golden-straw color, hazy and nearly fully opaque in the center, very pale straw and a little more translucent at the edges. Fizzling, wispy white head disappears within 20 seconds to nothing more than a skinny ring. Aroma is that of tart, sour green apples, sweet apples, apple candy, and sugar. Almost smells a bit like a hard cider. Very little wheat to be detected, and anything else for that matter, besides the apple. The taste is not as packed with apple as I was expecting from the intense nose... it's actually a bit watery and lacking. Faint, crisp apple skins graze the palate in a sparkling-apple-juice kind of way. The middle to after taste really brings out the wheat a bit more, as well as some fine grains. Mild tartness kicks the inside of your mouth more a second, but nothing too puckering. Despite the somewhat tart aroma and flavor, the beer doesn't taste or seem too overly sweet or sugary. It actually has a nice, crispy, somewhat dry finish. Aftertaste of weak wheatiness and some left over apple skins. I burped and it tasted like Apple Jacks cereal... how about that? Highly carbonated, as most Shock Top beers seem to be, making the beer seemingly evaporate as it enters your mouth.

Surprisingly, I enjoyed this one much more than I thought I would. Perhaps my expectations were set too low to begin with. It lacks a big flavor punch, but it's still pretty taste and it's not cloyingly sweet or menacing. I could actually see this working better in the summer time, not sure why it was released in January.

I picked up a bottle of Shock Top's Honeycrisp Apple Wheat last week for $1.00 at Kroger's. I was picking up some grocerys and I saw this sitting in the dollar bin so I thought it might be a worth a try, I don't have the highest expectations for this beer, but lets see how it goes. No visible bottling date, I think this was left over from fall 2012. Poured from a brown 12oz bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A- The label looks like the typical Shock Top labels with some apples thrown in to go with the name. It poured a hazy light golden yellow color that took on more of a darker golden color when held to the light with three fingers worth of white head that quickly died down to a thin ring that eventually faded away and it didn't leave any lacing behind. This was an average looking beer, the color was nice, but the head and lacing were disappointing.

S- The aroma starts off with a higher amount of sweetness and loads of apple aromas, there's some tart green apples mixed in with some apple cider aromas and it makes for an aroma that smells a little artificial and it reminds me of those green apple jolly ranchers. Up next comes the cinnamon which is noticeable but not overpowering and it goes good with the apple aromas. I also get a light wheat and grainy aroma on the finish. The aroma wasn't bad, but it was a little too heavy on the green apples and it had an artificial green apple candy aroma to it that got old fast.

T- The taste seems to be like a lighter version of the aroma and it starts off with a higher amount of medium sweetness followed by a good amount of apples that has some tart green apple flavors to it but the apple cider seems to be the most dominant flavor. After that comes the wheat that imparts a watery wheat and slightly stale malt flavors that remind that this is still a beer. It had no bitterness at all just a lighter amount of tartness instead and an apple cider and slightly wheaty aftertaste. This beer tasted ok, it was true to to the name, but the wheat base didn't stand out that well and the apples were slightly artificial and a little too overpowering.

M- Fairly smooth, slightly cloying, lightly tart, on the thick side of being medium bodied, with a good amount of slightly higher medium carbonation that was a little prickly. The mouthfeel was nice and the extra carbonation that was a little prickly worked well with this beer.

Overall I was pretty indifferent about this beer. i didn't love it, but it wasn't horrible, I think it's a pretty average example of the style, I wish the wheat base stuck out a little more and was cleaner and the apples could be toned down a little. This beer didn't have the best drinkability, it went down fairly smooth, but it was a little too sweet for me and the flavors didn't hold my attention for long at all, one is enough for me before it's time to move on to something else. What I liked the most about this beer was the mouthfeel, it was nice and I liked the extra carbonation, it worked well with this beer. What I liked the least about this beer was that the wheat base wasn't better and stuck out more, it was more of an artificial apple bomb than a wheat beer. I wouldn't buy this beer again, it's cheap, but it really isn't anything I enjoyed and I might recommend it to Shock Top lovers, but that's it. All i all I wasn't a big fan of this beer, it wasn't horrible but it didn't have enough quality's to convince me this was a decent Wheat beer. I like that Shock Top is trying new things, but this one didn't work out. better luck next time.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

This beer looks from the get-go like cider, clear dark yellow, though it does produce something of a head. It's not large or long-lasting, but it keeps up a wisp that leaves very, very little lacing on the glass.
Apples are forward, and there is a little wheat to it underneath. There's just a light touch of spicing, cinnamon expressly. The apple is, while a bit sweet, more focused on tart, so there's no question this beer is advertised. Malts bring a slightly musty hint of earth. Green apple skin as well as flesh are strong. Underneath, there's just barely a hint of some hops bitterness evening it out and doing what it can to make it known it's not just "alcopop."
The feel is about right for this beer. It's light, it's crisp and it feels as much like a hard cider as it smells and tastes. It has a nice, crisp bite without being too terribly spritzy, though it starts off leaning that way. A little slickness comes through in the middle but fortunately cuts out.

Shock Top Honey Apple Crisp has a thin, quickly-dying head, a dark golden, apple juice appearance, with lots of bubbles (etched tasting glass), and not much lacing left behind. The aroma and taste are of apple flavor, sugar, and children’s sugary breakfast cereal. Mouthfeel is heavy and chewy, and Shock Top Apple Crisp finishes sweet and chunky. Overall, this will appeal to those who prefer sweet, flavored beer-based products, and will be hated by those who prefer the traditional taste of beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

The color is a cloudy golden and amber mix and has a fetching quality but the head poured with too much quickly dying fizz.

The aroma is tempered in its sweetness and showcases a green Apple and wheat nose. At first I could smell it from a mile away but as it breathed the aroma became quite nice.

Preying on my weakness for Green Apple Jolly Ranchers this delivers a sweet but not cloying green Apple flavor.The wheat seems to be kept in check but may keep the overt sweetness at bay.

The feel is relatively slick, like a candy, with an easy feel and a superb lightness.

My opinion of this may be eschew because I'm partial to the flavor and I'm sure it's an additive and not natural flavors but be that as it may I still really like it.

A- Pours slightly hazy golden yellow color with a 3-finger fizzy white head that reduces to a small layer skimming the top, leaving no lacing

S- Smells like a straight cider, lots of tart apples with some sweet honey, maybe a touch of cinnamon

T-Very light flavor up front, sweet cider kicks in mid-palate with some tart apples flavors near the finish. The wheat flavor is light, but somewhat noticeable on the finish.

M- light bodied with moderate carbonation, slightly fizzy mouthfeel with a crisp finish

O- this beer serves a purpose, and would be refreshing for spring or summer days. Definitely drinks more like a cider as the wheat aspect is overpowered by the sweetness of the apple

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.5

A: Pours a cloudy straw yellow color with a fingers worth of head

S: Sweet green apple stands out the most, almost like a green jolly rancher. Get some light wheat and cidery notes, but the apple sweetness stands out the most

T: Follows the nose. Candy-like apple sweetness with a hint of dry cider, spices, and wheat to attempt any sort of balance. Finishes lightly dry

M: Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation

O: I feel like this COULD be an interesting beer if the jolly rancher sweetness wasn't present throughout the nose and taste. It overpowers anything else the beer is trying to do, and gets cloying after a couple. The cider has a nice influence, but again, it's just overpowered by the sweetness. Aside from being brewed with wheat, there really aren't much wheat characteristics either... Leave this one for the faux crowd

I wasn't expecting such a sweet taste. It reminds me of Redd's. As for the smell I thought it smelled pretty good for an apple beer. The mouth feel is the best rating a gave. It feels so nice and smooth: moderate carbonation.

Overall: I have had worse.

I heard from quite a few friends that this was good so I decided to pick up a 6-pack. While it's not bad, it didn't live up to their hype.

A- Looks more like a cider than a beer, which makes sense, since it says it's brewed with cider. I'm a big cider fan and I'd rather have the real thing, however. There is nearly no head and very minimal lacing, and the color ranges from dark yellow to a muted orange depending on the angle.

S- This brew smells much better than it tastes; like fresh apple cider and cinnamon.

T- The apple cider taste is present but not nearly as strong as a real cider's. A hint of honey in the aftertaste.

M- Average. Nothing too thick or thin; goes down smooth, though.

Overall, this is very drinkable and while certainly not the most flavorful beer I've had, it's not tasteless or bad by any means.

look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Pours a very hazy lemonade color with a dish soap-like collar of head. The head didn't stay though. I forgot to do the swirl. No lacing.

Smells like apple juice, wheat, cinnamon, pickled fruits, and Jolly Ranchers. Definitely very sweet nose. Some artificialness. Not half-bad, though.

Cider, stewed apple, cinnamon stick, tangy wheat/yeast combo, hint of juicy pear, some buried-beneath-the-sugar malts, a notch above 'no hops'. Just wicked sweet. Syrupy, too. Just overwhelmingly apple cinnamon. Finishes with a short-lived astringency, like a solvent. After that flashes, just more residual sweetness.

Sticky. Thick body for the style, loaded up with all that sugar. Carbonation is soft. Not sure what this would need to improve on feel, other than less sugars. So-so drinkability.

Not really a witbier. I'd probably rate this respectably as an American Pale Wheat Ale. The girlfriend loves it, but this just isn't for me.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Rather hazy yellow-brown, as befits an unfiltered wheat beer, with a fairly robust, coarse white head, which retains fairly well. The lacing is fairly thick, scattered, and patchy.

Aroma: Prominent apple note, somewhat artificial, alas. The aroma is strongly reminiscent of the Jolly Rancher apple candy of my youth. I am not able to detect any wheat in the aroma.

Taste: Opens with a sharp, crisp flavor of apples, fortunately lacking the artificial quality of the aroma. As the taste progresses, there are understated flavors of baked bread, and a hint of earthiness, in keeping with the wheat base of this beer. That being said, the apple flavor dominates the taste from start to finish. Late in the taste, there is a distinct flavor of apple rind, and a faint hop presence.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, and decently full, with mild carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: Better than I expected it to be, among the better Shock Top offerings. This is presented as a spring seasonal, in my opinion, it would be better suited to autumn. I did swirl the last half-inch of the beer in the bottle before pouring it into my glass. Shock Top Honeycrisp Apple Wheat might present slightly differently if this were not done. This beer might serve as an entree to craft beer for those who are accustomed to "malternatives" and other such sweetened alcoholic beverages.

Presentation: Packaged in a custom twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle with a twist-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Source: Purchased at Wal-Mart in Texas as a selection of a Brewmaster's Choice build-your-own six-pack for $8.99.

Another Shock Top variation. $7.49 a 6 pack at the Pik 'n Go liquor store in Bloomingdale, IL. 12oz brown bottles with no freshness date. I thought all AB products had a born on date, but couldn't find one on these bottles.

The appearance is disappointing. The color is right - a cloudy apple cider gold, but the white head dissipates before you can even put the bottle down and there is no lacing whatsoever.

Huge tart baking apple smell.

Tastes like spiced apple cider with some alcohol added. Tart apples, cinnamon, and some wheat malt, and that's about it.

Light bodied with medium carbonation.

Very refreshing, but not very beer-like.

Poured from a 12OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- You can really smell the apple not much beer aroma
Appearance- This is a fairly nice looking murky off yellow color with a small white head
Taste - Has a very apple flavored taste with a small beer bite at the end. Not bad for me but many purists will probably not like.
Palate- A light bodied beer with moderate to heavy carbonation with a thin texture.
Overall - This is an ok beer, I prefer the original version of Shock Top in the Shock Top stable. I would say this is middle of the road.

341 mL bottle included in a mixed 12-pack from TBS; served slightly chilled. Branded as "Shock Top Crisp Apple" in Canada, but with identical logo/abv.

Pours a cloudy, opaque golden-yellow colour, which is about the look I'd expect from a wheat beer. Roughly one inch of frothy white head is initially seated atop, but it proceeds to fizzle out over the next couple of minutes, leaving behind a wide, foamy collar and a modest band of lace. Granny smith apple is the most prominent constituent of the aroma by a good margin, supplying it with a definitive green Jolly Rancher vibe. A little wheaty, with some honeycrisp apple and apple juice concentrate notes. Very saccharine on the nose; reminds me of a Somersby.

The flavour profile itself is much more well-moderated, though still nothing overtly exciting. Wheaty, grainy pale malt sweetness is promoted to a distinct contributor here, with a mixture of sweet honeycrisp apple and tart Granny Smith flavour rounding out the back end. Finishes relatively mild, with a hint of tartness and some appleskin dryness in the aftertaste. Light-bodied, with crisp carbonation levels that, despite prickling the tongue, result in a smooth, almost soft sort of mouthfeel.

Final Grade: 3.12, a C+. Shock Top Crisp Apple is far from the worst apple-flavoured beer I've ever had - in fact, it might actually be above average in that category. However, the usual "apple beer" caveat applies - why would I ever pick this over a craft cider? I cannot come up with any convincing responses to that query, but that's just me. Fans of the Shock Top portfolio should find this to be an agreeable, mellow-flavoured fruit beer that leans toward the sweet side. It's inoffensive, acceptable in a pinch, and not something that I have much interest in drinking repeatedly.

Appearance - Pours slightly hazy and golden in color with a white, finger width head that fizzes away within seconds. Fizzy bubbles rising from the bottom a bit like champagne.

Smell - Tart and sugary apple... like a green apple jolly rancher.

Taste - Follows the nose. Sweet and tart, with a lot of apple and a subtle wheat undertone. Light spice in the finish. Gets a bit cloying after a few sips, but it's decent enough to finish the bottle.

Mouthfeel - Light in body with lively, fizzy carbonation. Crisp, dry finish.

Overall - They say this is a belgian wheat, apple cider hybrid, and that's what it tastes like. It's not great, but it does have some good flavor, even if it's a bit too sweet to drink more than one.

3.49/5  rDev +10.4%

I've had this beer before but decided to pick up a sixer for review.

Appearance (3.75) : In my Miller pint glass, it pours just about three fingers of creamy white head. The body is a hazy golden color characteristic of wheat beers. Opacity is about 60%. Lacing is here and there in thick hoops.

Aroma (3.75) : Green Apple licorice, with some granny smith and faint apple candy (jolly rancher). Very fruity, very apple-y.

Taste (3.5) : The nucleus is sweet apple and wheat, a hint of pepper...but if I could draw a picture, with a circle around the nucleus it would be made of water. The flavor seems to be floating in the middle of a sea of water and carbonation...so distant, but still there. The more you drink it, the more your awareness of the taste grows. From the bottle it seems to be somewhat more direct.

Mouthfeel (3) : Watery, light, heavily carbonated. Lightly dry on the finish.

Overall (3.49) : A little more watery than I'd like. The flavor profile could be bolder but what's there is decent. There's sweet and sour apple, with a candy-like sweetness, again like a jolly rancher; and an undertone of wheat. Overall it's an easy drinking, tasty beer. There's never really a bad time for one exactly, but it's like all macros - they have their place but are not exceptional in any category. It's worth picking up a sixer for friends who are beer shy, they may like it.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: The beer is the color of cider with a white head. Big chunks of sediment are swirling around, settling to the bottom. A few watery spots of lacing stay on the glass.

Aroma: Syrupy honey crisp apples, apple tart, cider, a slight hint of malts.

Taste: Definitely all apples, everywhere. Syrupy sweet and tart apple, some cinnamon. The finish has some barley or grains reminding me that this is in fact a beer.

Mouthfeel: Very thick and syrupy.

Overall: They got the apple tartness down, but it's brewed with cider and spices, and it tastes like it. Tastes a bit too much like those packages of instant cider that you add hot water to.

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.

Bottom Line: This was a complete drain pour. This was actually worse than most BMC light beers, which are at least unnoticeable. This, on the other hand, was hard to stomach.

This was disgustingly, cloyingly sweet in both taste and smell. The mouthfeel was probably okay, and there was a slight slight head on the pour.

Obviously it tasted like apple, but less like good cider, and more like overly floral, cheap apple wine that had been carbonated. Reminded me of Applejacks cereal, but in a bad way - this was bad Applejacks infused BMC Light Lager

I bought a six-pack of Shock Top Honeycrisp Apple Wheat in a grocery store. Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a pale yellow color, cloudy, about like pineapple juice.

Smell is decidedly apple. An authentic apple aroma and not much else. More of a juice arma than a beer.

Taste is a tart apple flavor, with a hint of cereal flavor in the background. Mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel is as crisp and clean as thin apple cider.

Overall not terrible, but not great. It might be competing with the apple ales (Red's) and apple ciders (Angry Orchard) on the market.

This pours a hazy yellow color with a slight, white head. There is a strong scent of granny smith apples with a slight hint of wheat. The initial flavor of this beer is more like a hard cider with a sweet, tangy, apple taste. It isn’t until well after swallowing you begin to get a beer taste from it. It finishes rather chalky and slightly sour. This is really more of a cider than a beer folks.

A: Hazy pale golden body, with a very persistent fluffy white head. Some lacing stays behind, but not a whole lot.

S: It smells like I just bit into an apple, but has a Jolly Rancher quality to it as well. Almost like more apple than an apple. Nothing else comes through, but it does smell very appley.

T: It tastes like apple soda, and doesn't have much beer quality to it. I mean when I drink this with my eyes closed I can't tell that it's a beer. In that respect I am disappointed, but they are all over the apple flavor in this one. I mean if you want something to make candy with, you could reduce this and wrap it in plastic.

M: The mouthfeel is smooth, but it's hard to drink with a sharp apple flavor.

O: Flavor-wise, this beer is nothing like a wit. I would recommend it to people who like very strong fruity sodas, like Fanta, fruit flavored Jones Soda, or fans of Jolly Ranchers. I like fruit beers, but this one is way over the top.

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.

A- Pours a light orange to yellow color with a ton of haze like a traditional wheat beer. Small to medium sized head that is mainly light and fizzy. Head goes down to a thin film on top fairly quickly with just a little bit of lacing. Body's color is very light on the edges when held to the light.

S- Huge, juicy apple scents right up front. The level of juiciness in this is surprising for a liquid. Apple is pretty much the only flavor in the scent, but man is it juicy and delicious smelling.

T- This just plain tastes like a hard cider up front. Starts with that same juicy apple flavor from the scent, then moves right into the wheat flavors. Wheat and grain turn into a fairly dry flavor profile towards the end. Ends with the grain and little to no hop bite.

M- Very, very carbonated, almost feels like a champagne. Decent body weight from the wheat, but doesn't sit too heavy. These could go down smooth for a while, but would probably fill you up after a bit.

Overall, this is a simple fruit beer, but pretty good. The wheat flavors brings it back into the beer realm from the juicy apples flavors that had me thinking it was basically a hard cider.
