Apollo is their summer seasonal, a perfect tailgating beer for the hot months at only 5.2% abv. Their take: "The unmistakable flavor of a Bavarian Wheat, but with a clear golden brilliance and a Sixpoint twist. An entirely unique canned offering for the sun-worshipping ale lovers." Sounds good to me... let's review:
Reviewers: Eric Ducote (BR Beer Scene), Jay Ducote (Bite And Booze), Brenton Day (The Ale Runner), Chuck Pierce (Me And My Big Mouth), and Kevin Cowan.
Serving: 16 oz. can.
Appearance: A clear deep gold, bordering on orange.
Aroma: Green apples, yeasty funk, very enjoyable. Chuck found it to be sour smelling and Brenton noted that it had some bubblegum and banana aromas.
Taste: Very tart, both Jay and Brenton mentioned that it had a jolly rancher flavor to it. I found it to be very easy drinking despite the tart flavors, and it was definitely on the sour side.
Mouthfeel: I thought it had a really good lingering apple flavor.
Overall: No one disliked this one, but a few of us (myself included) really enjoyed it. I stand by my assertion that this would make a fantastic tailgating canned beer.
Overall Rating: 65.2
