Had Lemonade apples for the first time today -- they were really good! Crisp, sweet, and tangy.

I second Envy as among the consistently best apples that I've had. Maybe it's because I'm up in Canada, but the Honeycrisp that I get in my area is not as good. I've also had great experiences with Ambrosia, though it is a bit more one-dimensional than most modern apple varieties.

Another one that I tried recently that blew me away was the SugarBee apple, but I've only ever seen it once. It had a very sweet, almost perfume-like flavour - hoping to see more of it in the future.
