The smell and taste of this beer hit with strong Pear to begin with. The apple (that sneaky, tempting, bastard) finds you in the finish and if you are so inclined to try, in the belch. While I donít love all of New Glarusí fruit tinged beers this one is a real winner, packed with loads of apple, spice and pear. While one of these is enough for me I highly recommend snagging one if you can.

OK so Iíve ticked this but havenít rated it. But it deserves a rate because it is so good. More of a beer than a cider, New Glarus is king of fruit beers...I donít think any other brewer really comes close. This is just a treat. World class, in fact. Itís like apple pie in a bottle with a kick.

Awesome copper color and clear. Aroma of fresh apples. Flavor of tart green apples with a champagne like fresh apple cider finish, with some mild malts rounding it out.

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).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
