3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a bottle. Looks like apple cider in the glass with a small bubbly head. Subtle aroma with apples, maybe some honey, and some slight spice. Flavor is sweet caramel with apples becoming present towards the finish. Beer is mainly sweet with just a hint of tartness in the finish. This is much sweeter than I had desired, and the apples seemed to play a minor role. When the apple flavor finally hit this beer is quite nice, but it is such a small part of this beer which resembles a watery apple juice to me.

Once again, bottle courtesy of Juart. Pours amber golden with a small frothy off-white head. Aroma is a tart malty apple juice. A little sweetness in the taste, but really has a lot of apple character. Pretty dry overall. Some tartness carries from the flavor to the taste. Has a lot of tight effervescence. And excellent balance with this beer. Finishes with a decent richness. Not too fruity. Very well done.

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.
