3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear golden color, a few strands of carbonation emanating up from the bottom. Thin wispy head. Flavor is big fresh apple notes, some golden delicious and also Macintosh. Dry to begin, sweet medium, dry finish. Flavor is so big and fresh that you can taste a bit of apple rind in there. Wow, this is like some exceptionally good apple juice. Well done. New Glarus does fruit beers like no other.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours out like a crisp apple cider color with thin bubbly head. Aroma is intense apple cider aroma with floral bouquet. Taste is like apple sauce and apple pie turned into carbonated liquid. The mouthfeel is great, it’s not to cloying or imbalanced. Good stuff. Wish I had more!

Aroma of fresh apple cider. Copper colored with some cloudiness. Nice tangy fizziness on the palate. Very fresh and crisp tasting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I love apple beverages. Apple Cider, apple soda, apple juice. This beer reminded me of an alcoholic and slightly bitter version of the Jarritos apple soda. Pours a clear gold with white head. Scent is sour apple. Flavor has big refreshing bite which is magnified by the carbonation. Lovely. Bottle - Received in Trade

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy dark golden color with a bright white head. Smells like apple cider with spices. Flavor is like a spiked apple cider with carbonation. More sweet than sour which surprised me. Not sure if I would consider this a beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is apples, sweet and a little musty. Pours a clear orange, thin white head spotty lace. Flavor is more and more apples, a little more cider than ale, but oh, the is palate so there, dry, chalky prickly, puckering. The beer is really more to be felt than tasted.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours golden with no head. Aromas are apple, like candy. Taste is similar, with definite fresh apple taste and not much else. I really thought this was tasty, but really did not see anything beer like about it. There was a hint of malt on the finish, but overall, very much like apple juice. Overall, tasty, but not what I was expecting.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours out like clear apple juice with only a small white ring, no head. The nose is smells like freshed-pressed apples, and thats really it. The flavour tastes equally fresh with mild barnyard funk and floral hops. The texture is slick, lightly carbonated and sugary sweet in the finish. Basically, its like a super tasty cider. I could hardly tell that this was based on a brown ale.
