Shock Top Honeycrisp Apple Wheat

Brewer Description
Shock Top Honeycrisp Apple Wheat is a unique, hand crafted brewed hybrid of Belgian wheat beer and sweet cider, with natural Honeycrisp flavor added to produce an innovative new brew that is crisp, refreshing and flavorful. This unfiltered brew is the perfect beer to welcome the warming Spring days.

I immediately spotted this new Shock Top release in the store and promptly made my purchase. I cracked open the bottle of this sweet, refreshing ale and poured it into a snifter glass. It poured a bright gold color that gave off hints of apple cider aromas. The taste was interesting. It has the characteristics of a beer, but the taste of a cider. Honeycrisp Apple Wheat provides the perfect blend between the two different styles. I was very impressed with Honeycrisp because it doesn’t cater to either style. Sometimes cider tastes a little too tart and sweet for my tasting. This has a hint of cider taste along with a refreshing wheat beer combination.

The apple flavor is tart and slightly sour that finishes smooth and crisp. I would recommend drinking this beer when the weather starts to turn. It will be a great companion for the upcoming spring and summer days. Drink up!

    Smooth ale for those who don’t like a bitter aftertaste. Truly light and crisp, it begs to be drunk almost ice-frosty cold. The aroma unveils what the brew will taste like and it has a refreshing but not overpowering hint of sweetness. Recommended.
