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.

Super delicious. You can taste the ale part in this, but itís mostly tart apple, but not like a hard cider. Very unique and tasty. Well done.

Poured golden with no head. Apple cider aroma. Tasted much like sparkling apple juice. Very sweet. Maybe a hint of malt. Does not taste much like beer, but definitely a nice change of pace. Once again New Glarus comes up with an interesting and tasty fruit beer.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2008 Bottle. Pours a nice golden amber color with a medium off white head. Aroma of apple cider, malt and light yeast. Taste is sweet apple cider with only a hint of malt. No alcohol was detected at all. Smooth and sweet. It is actually a little hard to tell that it is a beer. A small amount of tartness in the finish. A very different type of fruit beer.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 11, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2004 Slightly chill hazed orange body, effervescent, dissipating head. Delicate white wine, apple aroma, incredible apple flavor. Velvety mouthfeel with a very fine, natural feeling carbonation. I was actually a little surprised to find no sediment. Lacks the complexity of the Belgian Red, but this is unbelievably delicious stuff and a great pleasure to drink. I will undoubtedly spend the next several apple seasons trying to homebrew this stuff.

Bottle shared by rosskyle. The hit of apple is intense upon bottle opening. Maybe a little spice like clove or cinnamon but itís muted. Appearance is amber color reminiscent of a darker apple juice. Head quickly disappears. Taste is super sweet and very heavy on apple which I guess was expected. Not much of a beer feeling from this one but it does taste good. No real tartness or sour coming through. Very easy to drink but definitely more sweet juice than ale. Thin mouthfeel. I will probably only try this once but not as terrible as you would think.

Delicious fresh apples liquified with alcohol. Thick coppery cider beverage with creamy texture and lots of fresh apple potancy. A little sweet and hints of cinnamon too. Manages to avoid being sickly syrupy while coating your mouth with malty sweetness. Very tasty.

Been waiting a very long time to try this one. My next door neighbor brought me some back from Wisconsin. Dark Apple Cider looking beverage. Tons of apple and sweet caramel flavoring. You can actually taste the raw apple flavor in this beer!!! Fantastic freaking beer. Thereís nothing wrong with an excellent Fruit Beer, this is the best Iíve had. Another canít miss product from New Glarus. Those who donít enjoy this style are really missing out. Nice sweet apple finish. Is exactly what it says it is.

Bottle from RooftopRogue, thanks Rob. Iíve been wanting to get my hands on a bottle of this for a while and it was worth the wait. Smells like apple cider, tastes like apple cider but with just enough malt to distinguish itself as a beer. Crisp, sweet finish. Another excellent fruit beer from NG.

This beer is awesome! Amazing aroma, awesome apple taste. Hints of the base beer soak thru and add to the complex and rounded experience. Do not pass this up. Crisp, clean, and delicious ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
