Bottled: Orange colour. Clear. Apple, sweetness, stearin in the aroma. Flaovur is very sweet and cloying. Obvious apple flavour, thats a bit too much for my likings. Ends on a very sweet note. Thanks Jeppe for sharing.

12 ounce bottle brought to me from Wisconsin by a friend. Thanks Jenny! Pours a clear light orange color with a medium head. Good head retention that does not leave much lacing. Aroma is strong, tart apple cider. Subtle graininess is there if you look for it, but the apples do dominate. Flavor is apple cider with a tart champagne like finish and some spices. Full bodied and very smooth with lively carbonation. This is very nice.

Bottle from noncaloric. Thanks so much. Pours a nice golden color with a quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is crisp and clean and apples apples and more apples. Flavor is a shocker APPLES. Tart and sweet with one thing that differentiates this from ciders it actually finishes with the slightest beer flavor. A wonderful change of pace and my wife will be very happy.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Clear, copper/amber ale with a small, creamy, white head and decent retention. Rich, lightly spicy, fruity aroma. Silky, sweet, malty flavor. Not cloyingly sweet. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Short, enjoyable, fruity finish. All that said, this brew tastes like fresh apples! Another fun beer from New Glarus! Thanks to footbalm for the bottle.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2014 Bottle @ home, courtesy of TheAlum. Fairly clear, dark orange appearance with white head. Quite sweet apple cider, caramel malty nose. Slightly roasty apple, light caramel malty flavor with a dry finish. Interesting beer but I’ve had numerous other fruit beers from New Glarus that I find to be far superior. Update: really fun beer to get shitfaced on. Bonus points added.
