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.

hopscotch (10118) - 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.

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.

Dogbrick (9611) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Bottle from Festival Foods in La Crosse. The beer pours a clear pale amber color with a medium somewhat fizzy off-white head that burns away quickly. Stringy lacing. Apple juice aroma. Medium, dry body with and apple flavor that is more apple juice than apple cider. There is a touch of sweet malt as well. The finish is effervescent and fruity with a very short apple aftertaste. Decent overall.

mcberko (9571) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 3, 2012
12 oz. bottle, sent from FullObs (thanks Brett), pours a hazy copper / bronze with a small white head. Aroma of green apples that pretty much dominate, with a bit of candied sugar sweetness. Flavour reminds me more of an apple cider, with fresh green apples and a bit of sweetness - well-balanced. No hint of the wheat or brown ale qualities. Solid flavour profile for being < 4%, but the whole thing feels a bit whimsical, especially compared to Raspberry Tart and Wisconsin Red. Nevertheless, solid refreshing light fruit beer.

A cleaner, less rotten tasting version of the average cidre. A strong effort.

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.

rosenbergh (8689) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 13, 2015
12 oz bottle. From a trade with GT2. Thanks a lot!
Slightly cloudy copper colour with a small off-white head. Apples, strawberries, sweetness, mild sourness, toffee and malt in the aroma. The flavour is strawberries, sweetness, apples, fermented strawberries and some raisins. Quite complex but not necessarily all great. Still enjoyable and interesting brew.

DrSilverworm (8686) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 27, 2014
12oz bottle, thanks to caterwaul. Clear orange color. Thin bubbly off-white head. Fades to minimal, leaves a few dots of lace. Tart taste, much more so than your typical ale. Tastes very cider-like. Moderate sweet. Definitely fall-type apple cidery taste, the non-alcoholic kind that comes in a plastic gallon. Moderate spiciness. Light to medium body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation, kind of a slick finish. Interesting stuff, definitely very big on the apple, very apple-like. Maybe a bit too apple-like for me, though.

Pours deep amber/orange with thin white head, lively carbonation. Aroma is spices, and lots of apples with a hint of tart. Taste is sweet and tart apples up front, leading into some spices, finishing sweet and apple based. Sort of like a cider, but really more like liquid apples than a sugary drink. Unique, enjoyable.
