COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Apple Ale sings with the fresh crisp taste of Wisconsin Apples. Our brewmaster begins with a brown ale base employing Wisconsin farmed wheat and a blend of Cortland, MacIntosh and Jonathan apples. Our apple growing friends squeeze them especially for this brew. Expect this ale to pour a beautiful copper color. The fresh bouquet of Apple will rise to meet you even before the glass touches your lips.

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.

Holy cow, this one is amazing. Bottle at Meridian Pint, courtesy of Whitney, thank you ma’am! The aroma was like having a dozen warm apple turnovers shoved up your nose at the same time - but in a god way. The taste is equally shocking, not too sweet, not too sour. Tons of fruits plus all the stuff that goes in those apple turnovers, like raisins, very very light and subtle cinnamon, and that gooey stuff that ends up in between all the little chunks of apple. I’ll say it again. Amazing.

Bottle poured a clear amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of carmel, apple, cinnamon and a hint of vanilla. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of apple, light carmel and a hint of spice with a crisp apple finish.

Bottle from Ratman. Pours clear copper with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is average malt (bread, cereal), light hops (earthy), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of cinnamon, apple, and earth. Flavor is average malt (bread, biscuit, cookie), light hops (earthy), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of buttered, cooked apples with cinnamon; faint crust notes. Light body, low warmth and creaminess, medium carbonation with a dry finish.

daknole (9042) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 9, 2008
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.

hopscotch (9037) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2005
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.

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.

Poured a medium amber copper color with a smaller off white head. Smells like the apple pie filling. Tastes of sweet apples. Sweet. Cinnamon sugar. I’m not much of a fruit beer kinda of guy, but this one was good. Thanks to goldtwins for trading me this one.

355mL courtesy of CaptainCougar. Well now we have discovered my girlfriend’s favorite beer taking the top spot from Old Viscosity. It poured a clear, deep gold with a small to medium, dense, creamy, buttermilk head that leaves swathy lacing if you let it. But you’ll probably drink the entire bottle before the lacing is even allowed to take hold. Aroma is straight chunky apple sauce, apple pie filling, rich artisan apple juice not from concentrate with beautiful caramel in the background that becomes very prominent as it warms. The finale of the nose is hot apple pie drizzled with caramel alongside mulled apple cider. Mulled spices really show through if you give it the time. Taste is not cider, not apple juice, but full creamy apple sauce, slightly apple butter, and a nice spritzy tartness gives the beer such a quenching character like Raspberry Tart and Belgian Red. It is almost impossible to keep the beer in the glass. It seems to evaporate in thin air from everyone wanting to try a sip. If there is a heaven, it would have a happy hour with $5 pitchers of New Glarus fruit beer.

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.
