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.

From a 12oz Bottle. Crystal clear, apple cider colored body with a quickly dissipating head of white foam. Big, bold, complex apple fruit aroma, with notes ranging from tart, bright skins to the dark, sweeter flavors of late harvest fruit. Hints of cinnimon and a faint cidery character. Soft touches of graham cracker malt. Light bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel with a sweet fruit flavor but dry, sparkling finish. Carbonated apple cider with hints of lemon and mulling spices. A mild-moderate acidity enhances the cider aspects of the flavor; the acid helps brighten and lighten the flavor as its free of any funky or aged qualities. Not very beer-like, but the apple flavors are outstanding - red fruit, green fruit, ripe fruit, and bright fruit.

bottle. Deep amber with one finger head. Big apple, spice and some light malt. I had very high hopes for this, and while itís very tasty, Iím not blown away. That said, itís a very flavorful, well made beer.

Bottle, thanks to one of my co-workers. Poured a slightly cloudy light copper yellow color with a small white head. Aroma was wonderful. Like fresh sqeezed apples, some light sweetness even comes off this one - it reminds me of quality cider. The flavor was delicious. It was like a very juicy apple juice, very fresh. Very mild caramel notes. Incredibly easy to drink, the alcohol is there, but it doesnít get in the way, clearly.

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

New Glarus is the king of fruit beers and this is no different. The apples define the beer, but its not a cider. Bready base soaks through and the sweetness is understated.

Bottle split on the hotel patio, SD, big thanks to GT2 for gifting me this number 14/11/14. Rich amber/chestnut brown with a light beige covering. Nose is big on apple pulp, straw, light caramel, woody must, more apple juice. Taste comprises sweet apple juice, light pear and prune backnotes, caramelised brown sugar, sweet licks. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, sweet licks in the close. Ok for style but a little too sweet for me overall - full on apple orchard attack!

This beer is awesome! Amazing aroma, awesome apple taste. Hints of the base beer soak thru and add to the complex and rounded experience. Do not pass this up. Crisp, clean, and delicious ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drank from bottle while freezing ass in Lake Placid NY. aroma is strong apples and sweetness. Actually get a lot of strawberry esters, interesting. Taste is sweet, apples and more strawberries. Maybe my brain is wired wrong... Decent fruit beer, but too sweet for me.
