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.

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.

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.

Pours chill hazy amber, with some malt aroma and a flavor dominated by tart apple, wheat and touch of oak.

Thanks to kmpitz2 for bringing one of these for tasting. This one pours an amber color with a very small head that dissipates quickly and doesn’t leave much lacing on the glass. Awesome aroma. Apples and more apples. Not tart or sour, but just a nice apple smell. Not sure how they did that and avoided the sourness. The flavor is excellent. Lots of non-sour apple flavor with some caramel. Wish I knew how they did this beer because I would brew it as my house beer. Loved it.

New Glarus does an awesome job with fruit beers and this is no exception. Pour is a nice golden pour with a frothy white head but no lacing. Aroma is...apple...duh...but not heavy, more of a light apple white wine. Flavor is sweet but only slightly so thats nice. Palate does wonders for this beer as its fizzy and thin. Typically wouldn’t like that but is perfect in this beer. Overall this was just fantastic.

Notes from 11/26/2010 12 oz. bottle from Steve’s Madison Ar: Lots of apple, obviously. Fall McIntosh and tart varieties dominate. Perhaps a touch of caramel malt. Ap: Pours a golden amber with streaks of orange. Not a ton of head, but brilliantly translucent. T: Lots of apple sweetness on the front, but not much tartness. This would be exponentially better with a bit tart punch. P: Champagne-like carbonation. O: I remember this being significantly better during the last vintage (2008?). A big tart bite would have made this one great, but it just wasn’t there.

Bottle. Pours amber with a small bright white head. Aroma is apples, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Flavor is alot of apple. Medium mouthfeel...This is exactly what it sounds like...and apple ale...fruity as hell....but delicious as hell.

Bottel courtesy of GT2, thanks! Pours clear golden, with a small white head, Aroma: Baked apples, cinnamon, apple pie, æblemost, artisanal apple juice, brown sugar, pie crust, deep complex apple aroma, but besides som some caramel malts thats all you get in the aroma. Not that it\s a bad thing, smells lovely! Taste: Applejuice, sweetsweet apples, cider, light acidic fruityness, some caramel, aplle cider vinegar, carbonated apple juice, one dimensional, but very tasty!
