Apple Ale sings with the fresh crisp taste of Wisconsin Apples. Our brewmaster begins with a brown ale base employing Wisconsin farmed wheat and a blend of Cortland, MacIntosh and Jonathan apples. Our apple growing friends squeeze them especially for this brew. Expect this ale to pour a beautiful copper color. The fresh bouquet of Apple will rise to meet you even before the glass touches your lips.

Poured into a pint. Copper apple juice like color. Same aroma, fresh pressed apples. Perfect apple flavor. Not too much like a beer and not too much like and overly sweet cider. Low carbonation fits the bill.

Outstanding apple ale. Juicy apples dominate the aroma and the sharp, snappy finish, yet in between is the sweetness of the wheat and full body of the brown ale -- very different and welcomed in a fruit beer. Enjoyed from an October 2014 bottle (still great after nine months in the beer fridge).

JMerritt (1898) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2015
Bottled. Orange-scarlet in color, hazy, with a very small, fizzy white head - looks just like fresh pressed apple cider. Aroma is of straight apple cider. Flavor is mildly sweet and increases in intensity. There is a bit of tartness in the end, almost like cranberry. A unique apple ale, very cidery without being overly alcoholic.

Pours an amber color with minimal head. Flavor is crisp and refreshing, tart apple, well balanced. Overall a fantastic apple ale.

rosenbergh (8864) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 13, 2015
12 oz bottle. From a trade with GT2. Thanks a lot!
Slightly cloudy copper colour with a small off-white head. Apples, strawberries, sweetness, mild sourness, toffee and malt in the aroma. The flavour is strawberries, sweetness, apples, fermented strawberries and some raisins. Quite complex but not necessarily all great. Still enjoyable and interesting brew.

New Glarus Apple Ale has a thin, white head, a semi-clear, amber appearance, no bubbles and almost no lacing left behind. The aroma is of strong, sweet & sour apple aroma, caramel, and candied malt. Taste is of those elements with citrus and cream cheese. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and New Glarus Apple Ale finishes tart and drinkable. RJT

asedzie (711) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours a bubbly copper with medium beige head that quickly disappears. Nose is enticing - a big aroma of freshly sliced apples dominates, also caramel notes, some bready yeast. Flavor and palate are absolutely superb - such a rich full medley of tart-sweet apple flavors that I feel the salivation in the sides of my cheeks begin as it crosses my tongue - really, that good. The density and flavors of the apple sugars are complex - some like golden raisins, some like sweet reisling grapes, some deeper notes of candied apple and roasted apple pie filling - an onrush of sweetness that is punctuated by a final mildly tannic note of subdued tartness. Blissful.

12oz bottle pours a brown color with a bit of head. Wonderful Apple aroma. Nice sweet Apple flavor balanced against the malt.
