Bottle. Slightly hazy dark orange color with a medium white head that diminishes to a rim. Aroma is ripe apples with some funk. Flavor is deep red-apple puree, intense and complex finish is slighltly acidic and lingering. Medium palate, cider like, refreshing.

Probably the sixth time Iíve rated this beer, yet it keeps getting deleted. Whatever. Gold pour with a small white head. Champagne like carbonation in some batches, a bit lower in others. Very juicy apple flavor and aroma. The latest batch I picked up had a slight tartness to it, much more muted apple, and really just brings me back to the first batch I had. Some spices like nutmeg and cinnamon can be found, as well as a nice caramel back bone. Very enjoyable and probably my favorite New Glarus beer Iíve ever had.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from Marsí Cheese Castle in Kenosha, WI. Pours a very lightly hazed, copper colored body with a finger-width, fizzy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is sweet apple candy with a nice pie crust and wheat malt backing. A light tartness, a few citrus notes, syrup, and a light spicing. Flavor is similar. Sweet pie crusts and apples with a light tartness, spice, wheat, and syrupy note. A bit of a Jolly Rancher thing going on before this finishes crisp, clean, sweet, and lightly tart with plenty of apples. Lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, light body and a crisp, medium carbonation. Overall, damn, New Glarus really knows how to make an awesome fruit beer. Crisp, sweet, clean, and lightly tart in a low ABV, easy drinking body. Very enjoyable.

Bottle. Cracked it open and got a big whiff of candy apple. Nose when poured is fresh apple cider. Appearance is also apple cider. Taste is fresh squeezes apple juice, fruit spritzer. Initially juicy mouthfeel turns dry and ends in a bone dry finish.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours cloudy amber with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of apples, caramel malts, and very little bitterness. Mainly apples on the flavor but some malts too. Average texture. A good fruit beer.

Better than any cider Iíve ever had. Looks like apple juice with just a wisp of white head. Smells like apples. Tastes like apples with a hint of caramel. Not something Iíd want to drink all night but would be great to spring on people who claim they just donít like beer.

Yum. Nose is pure apple orchard. Light carbonation. Minimal head and lacing. Taste is apple cider with some ale highlights. Nice

Bottle from Neal - thanks! Murky cider color pour with a slick of white foam. Smells like sweat, candied applies with cinnamon. Drinks like liquid apples with a nice balance of sweetness and slight complimentary tart. Clean and crisp mouthfeel. Amazing - one of the best fruit beers Iíve ever had.

Bottle. Pours slightly cloudy brown orange with only a ring (looks like apple juice to be honest). Smell is red and green apples with a slight tart note, medium sweet . Taste is sweet and tart apples. Again I get both red and green apples. Both the sweetness and tart lingers. Medium to light bodies. Really nice.
