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.

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.

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. There’s nothing wrong with an excellent Fruit Beer, this is the best I’ve had. Another can’t miss product from New Glarus. Those who don’t enjoy this style are really missing out. Nice sweet apple finish. Is exactly what it says it is.

Bottle from RooftopRogue, thanks Rob. I’ve 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.

Red-orange-gold, clear, almost no head. Very appley, sweet nose. Crisp slight bitterness, predominantly sweet. Tailing bit of sourness. Effervescent, quite carbonated, a little acidic. Finishes a little drier than it starts. Quite light body. Not terribly complex, pretty mild, but enjoyable.

12oz bottle from a trade with Atom: Clear orange copper color with a nice fluffy head. Aromas of tart apples and caramel, some breadyness, kind of reminds me of apple pie. I started to get the aroma as soon as I poured it. Taste of sweet caramel malts with a tart apple fruityness. The taste is very natural and not artificial. Dry finish. Great full mouth feel without being heavy I could drink a lot of the beer and still enjoy. I hope to get more someday.
