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.

The aroma was rich with apples and hints of caramel and brown sugar. The beer poured a hazy rich copper color with little to no head and lacing. There may have been a carbonation problem with mine. The flavor was syrupy like straight apple juice and little malt. The mouthfeel was slightly wet and creamy with a light to medium body. I enjoyed it. Thanks to Vac for scoring this one for me.

Pours clear, pale copper with a beautiful medium head composed of super-fine bubbles. Once the head recedes it leaves moderate lacing. Strong carbonation helps bring a simply sublime sweet and tart apple aroma to your nose, like fresh cider, along with hints of spice and bread. On the palate it’s like apple pie - Lush, rich, sweet, slightly tart, and appley with the underlying brown ale acting like a pie crust. Truly fantastic stuff, but at 3.8% alcohol this one should come in 2 liter bottle for easier consumption!

Bottle. Pours a slightly amber/cider color, head dissapeared almost immediately. Aroma is a subdued tart apple, sweet. I was a little worried that this was going to be a watered down version of a fruit beer. First sip changed that. This beer is like apple cider without the extreme tartness usually associated with cider. I couldn’t believe how great the apple flavor came across with a touch of malt and cinnamon in the background. Finishes dry, surprising seeing how the beer is more sweet than tart.

Went on a mad beer spending spree up in Madison and bought many New Glarus products. Pours a dark orange color with off white head. Smells of a cider beer and flavor is apple cider. Not a big fan of ciders but this is pretty decent.

Sweet, tangy aroma, and cloudy red pour with an off-white head. Sticky, sweet body. Flavor is full of apple with a sour finish.

Wow, an apple a day makes a lot more sense to me now. This is a crispy treat, not for sipping. The quenchibility (sp?) may only be surpassed by the wonderful balance of sweet and tart. Fruit beers are so hard to make this well.

Bottle to glass. 12-23 tasting with armin and boody. (thanks to armin for bringing out the NG goodness with him from Wis) Pours a nice light gold, with very minimal head. Some caramel notes in there too. Smells a lot like apple cider, with some nice caramel malt in there. Tastes like a caramel apple at a wisconson apple fest. Even the wife liked it, which is saying something about how fruity this tasted. Finished just like a tart apple...juicy yet dry. Really a nice fruit beer.

Tart apple aroma with a hint if yeast. Cloudy gold with quickly dissipating white head. Tart apple with a sweet candy flavor. Really good.

Ataraxia (370) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 12, 2014
Clear, golden amber color, off-white head. Musty aroma of apple, dough, and bread malt. A nice blend of tart and sweet flavors. Lively and crisp, very light in body, and a clean finish.
