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.

12oz bottle thanks to mikesgroove.
Appearance : Clear shiny amber with almost no head.
Aroma : Lots of apple with some acidic syrupy notes. Some cough syrup maybe. Interesting fruity notes but Iím not sure about the rest.
Taste : Lots of apple, some wheat. A bit acidic and syrupy. Palate is thin. I donít think Iíve ever had a beer that thin. Finish is nice apples. No bitterness. Some wheat on the finish also.
Overall : Interesting stuff. Very drinkable. Carbonation is a little bit aggressive (fizzy) but I guess it was needed to balance the thin palate. Enjoyable apple profile thats for sure but I donít think itís a beer I would seek out again. Carbonation gets softer with time. Finish is a bit weak.

12 oz. brown bottle thanks to Skyview. A golden brown beer with a small head. The aroma has apples(duh!!), but comes off as a fermented apple juice. The taste is sweet and apple and not all that different than apple juice but with some alcohol. This is a lot like a cider.

12 oz. bottle via trade - Pours a crystal clear amber color with a small off white head. Faint lacing. Aroma is lightly sweetened apples. Well, so is the flavor. Medium body. A pretty nice fruit beer. Donít think I could drink more than one though.

A-pours a perfectly clear light copper color with a bubbly tan colored head. S-the nose has tons of apple juice in it with a light cider backing. hints of spicey phenol, ever so faint. T-same as the nose, a little more vibrant juice flavors, hints of cider behind, a touch more spice behind, a little thin in the finish on the flavor. M-syrupy texture and rather full bodied. high carbonation, semi dry crisp finish. D-a little sweet and thins out in the back on the flavor but not the body. singular but knows what it is. Talk about an awesome halloween beer. this would be great for a halloween party!

Bottled. Amber colour, no head.Lovely acidic green apple aroma. Very sweet and lightly funky with cidery apple flavour. Refreshing, and even though itís really sweet it doesnít get cloying.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 3, 2005
This brew pours with an orangeíamber body topped by a thick off-white head with some lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet yet full of sour apple notes. Smells a lot like sparkling cider. The flavor is sweet and full of apple. Is this a beer or a cider...I donít even notice any beer characteristics. Light bodied, crisp and smooth.

Nice light golden copper color with a slight hazyness to it. Small, loosely bubbled and strangely constructed greyish cap that whisps away pretty quickly leaving a thin collar that stays about half the glass down. Lacing is very minimal in spots. Aroma is musty mushy bruised apples, borderline melon-like with a more musty past-its-prime honeydew thing. Oddly abtrusive yet possibly appetizing and intreguing nose. Flavor is mellow and musky with a heavy sweet dark apple skin and mush tone. Pretty darn sweet and thickly so; the apple isnít to bad, its not cidery, its mushy, chewy, tangy, and mellow. The sourness is beyond deep in tone, nearly nonexsisitent until very late where some truer crispy apple tones float across the finish. Feel is partially thick and chewy with a mellow tang and solid sweet dark apple tone thats melony and candy-like. Sugary through and through; smooth and creamy mediumness in body. A strange brew tis true. One thats either a ílove ití or íhate ití thing. Iím right in the middle, I donít particularly like it all that much, but it doesnít bother me or uninterest me either. I probably wonít buy it again but Iím glad to have tried it. One of those types of brews.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - FEB 1, 2005
Thanks Footbalm! Aroma is euphoric apple juice, sour apple pucker, and apple jolley ranchers. Very sweet, like red and green apples combined. Pretty damn good. Slightly too sweet, a bit of acidity would be nice in this brew. Still a good beer.

Light amber colour with a small head. Aroma is apples, some citrus and pears. Flavour was sweet without the sourness of apples I was hoping for. Good beer but nowhere near as good as their Raspberry Tarte.
