4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A spare head with spare lacing. Pours an amber color. Aromas of orange peel, bubble gum, and lots of fruit (apple, pear, peach, and cherry). Pure bliss from an aroma standpoint (yes, I like fruit beers). Definite fruit bouquet, in an AWESOME beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A clear copper pour. This aroma is confounding, with a blending of gorgeous tart apple character and buttery, toffee malts that are persistently candy-like and cloying; this can reach the level of butterscotch schnapps or caramel coated green apple. This issue is cast aside in the brilliantly textured flavor, which offers a pure, tantalizing apple flavor unsullied by extra sugars or weird off colors. Moments of brown sugar, caramelized pear, and caramel can be perceived, all within the wide spectrum of the apple flavor.
Mildly syrupy but always returning to crisp and drinkable, as is standard; juice box finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a glowing copper color with with a half finger of gaseous bubbles that fizzle out quickly. Nose is apple, pure soft sweet apple flesh with a hint of earthy must. Palate is softly carbonated with sweet apple notes that are layered with hints of cinnamon and applesauce with a lingering tannin to help clean up the sweetness on the finish.

"if your into apples, this is your ticket. New Glarus continues to prove their forte is in the fruit beers. many juice like qualities, but a deeper flavor abides here. clean as can be, crisp and refreshingly sweet and tart. i don’t know how you’d make an apple ale better. would be a perfect drink on a crisp autumn day."

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear dark Amber with a thin head off white head that settles to an oily film and leaves decent lacing. Aroma of apples, butterscotch and short bread. Taste is initially sweet with Granny Smith apples, apple cider, caramel, a hint of tartness and some toasted grain. Mouthfeel is somewhat fizzy with a light/medium body and high carbonation. Very drinkable and simple but nuanced flavors that never become too cloying.
