4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sweet spiced apple aroma. Pours an effervescent amber colored cider-like liquid. Fizzy head disappears quickly after pouring. Taste is sweet with very little maltyness. Palate is wonderfully crisp and bubbly. Very light with little alcohol, thus, it is very drinkable. Perfect for the holidays as an adult alternative to normal cider. Won’t fill you up while eating a heavy meal. Nice fruit beer. New Glarus really can’t be beat on fruit beers.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours light copper with little head. Smells like apple cider. Very fruity aroma. Interesting flavor. Lots of apple flavor. Very tart. At the same time, lots of malt flavor. If you can imagine a nice amber beer with tart apples, blended oddly very nice, because it sounds horrible, but is actually great, this would be it. This is definitely not a cider. This is a must try if you want something different.

Poured from 12oz bottle. Pours caramel in color, looks and smells like apple cider. There is little to no head at all on this, but a nice amount of carbonation. Taste is similar to a dry apple cider.

Pours a murky, dark amber-brown with a diminishing off-white head. Initial earthy yeast aromas. Strong aromas of apples come through and build as the head fades. Very brilliant apple flavors while staying complex. The malt and hops tame the apple, keeping it from tasting like pure apple juice. Malt has flavors of caramel and brown sugar, perfect compliments to the apple. Body is medium, creamy with a lively carbonation. I wish they would keep brewing this.

Pours a transparent read with a thin head. Aroma of cider, malt, caramel, and a slight pie spice. Flavor is of cider, malt, caramel, and spice. Excellent fresh crisp taste. A little sweet near the end but excellent none the less.

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