Bottle, thanks to one of my co-workers. Poured a slightly cloudy light copper yellow color with a small white head. Aroma was wonderful. Like fresh sqeezed apples, some light sweetness even comes off this one - it reminds me of quality cider. The flavor was delicious. It was like a very juicy apple juice, very fresh. Very mild caramel notes. Incredibly easy to drink, the alcohol is there, but it doesn’t get in the way, clearly.

Super delicious. You can taste the ale part in this, but it’s mostly tart apple, but not like a hard cider. Very unique and tasty. Well done.

New Glarus is the king of fruit beers and this is no different. The apples define the beer, but its not a cider. Bready base soaks through and the sweetness is understated.

Bottle split on the hotel patio, SD, big thanks to GT2 for gifting me this number 14/11/14.
Rich amber/chestnut brown with a light beige covering.
Nose is big on apple pulp, straw, light caramel, woody must, more apple juice.
Taste comprises sweet apple juice, light pear and prune backnotes, caramelised brown sugar, sweet licks.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, sweet licks in the close.
Ok for style but a little too sweet for me overall - full on apple orchard attack!

This beer is awesome! Amazing aroma, awesome apple taste. Hints of the base beer soak thru and add to the complex and rounded experience. Do not pass this up. Crisp, clean, and delicious

Drank from bottle while freezing ass in Lake Placid NY. aroma is strong apples and sweetness. Actually get a lot of strawberry esters, interesting. Taste is sweet, apples and more strawberries. Maybe my brain is wired wrong... Decent fruit beer, but too sweet for me.

Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs; thanks arminjewell). Looks good;a fairly transparent orange with foamy light caramel head. Smells of apples and mild related spices. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. A solid fruit beer.
