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.
