Apple juice color. White head that recedes quickly. Smells like fresh apple juice. Taste just like sweet, crisp, awesome apple juice. This is like a sweet, carbonated hard cider. I could drink this all day!

The apple flavor is perfect, not too sweet or too tart, and doesnít overwhelm the crackery beer base. Itís not an equal partnership but itís closer than most and certainly coudnít be mistaken for simple cider. The low ABV is making me seriously consider drinking a zillion of these. Yum yum yum yum. Wisconsin!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance is is a hazy deep orange color with a white head that is only about a 1/2 finger thick. Aroma hits you as soon as you pop cap off with mild tart apples. Once in the glass you smell fresh cut apples just as if you were making apple cidar. Taste hits you right away with nice tartness, then the apple flavor kicks in to mellow the tartness out. Has a dry finish bringing it all together. The mouthfeel is is light with a good amount of carbonation which really wakes up the taste buds. Easy to drink with the low ABV but after 2 I would think this would get to be a little sweet and tart.

It pours a clear golden copper; effervescent, with a bubbly white head that quickly disappears. I’m not too sure what the difference is between an apple cider and an apple ale, but it tastes pretty similar, only a little lighter on the palette and the alcohol than the ciders I’ve tried.

Bottle, thanx to tkrjukoff. Pours clear golden with a small, off-white head. Complex aroma of cinnamon, ginger and a hint of apple. Sweet taste of ginger and some apple. Fresh.

Liquid candy from New Glarus. Aroma is very subtle and sweet with apple. Pours a dark, golden carbonated throughout with a thin, fizzy white head. Taste is like carbonated apple juice, very sweet, and fizzy. Very light body with a nice sweet finish. Very easy to drink. This one gulps down fast and the taste is delicious. Good job NG

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a back rate from a while ago, but probably one of the best beers I have ever had. Aged for 2 years (2008 bottle), I donít like the fresh ones as much, but they are still great. Tastes more like an apple cider (not a hard cider) than a beer. Aroma is fresh apples, tastes is the same, just fresh and sweet without that fake sugary sweetness. Seriously, just awesome.
