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.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 9, 2010
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.

rosenbergh (8252) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 13, 2015
12 oz bottle. From a trade with GT2. Thanks a lot!
Slightly cloudy copper colour with a small off-white head. Apples, strawberries, sweetness, mild sourness, toffee and malt in the aroma. The flavour is strawberries, sweetness, apples, fermented strawberries and some raisins. Quite complex but not necessarily all great. Still enjoyable and interesting brew.

New Glarus Apple Ale has a thin, white head, a semi-clear, amber appearance, no bubbles and almost no lacing left behind. The aroma is of strong, sweet & sour apple aroma, caramel, and candied malt. Taste is of those elements with citrus and cream cheese. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and New Glarus Apple Ale finishes tart and drinkable. RJT

Orange clear pour from 12oz bottle at home. Super applely. Taste and aroma. Juicy and super pound able. Great beer

asedzie (657) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours a bubbly copper with medium beige head that quickly disappears. Nose is enticing - a big aroma of freshly sliced apples dominates, also caramel notes, some bready yeast. Flavor and palate are absolutely superb - such a rich full medley of tart-sweet apple flavors that I feel the salivation in the sides of my cheeks begin as it crosses my tongue - really, that good. The density and flavors of the apple sugars are complex - some like golden raisins, some like sweet reisling grapes, some deeper notes of candied apple and roasted apple pie filling - an onrush of sweetness that is punctuated by a final mildly tannic note of subdued tartness. Blissful.

12oz bottle pours a brown color with a bit of head. Wonderful Apple aroma. Nice sweet Apple flavor balanced against the malt.

Copper pour with a fast disappearing head. Huge fresh apple aroma. Fairly sweet taste, Apple (naturally) also a jam-like sweetness that most New Glarus fruit beers seem to have. Slightly tart and acidic. Medium body. Makes a good replacement for apple cider. I’d pair it with Pork Tenderloin myself.

commonmac (596) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle shared by rosskyle. The hit of apple is intense upon bottle opening. Maybe a little spice like clove or cinnamon but it’s muted. Appearance is amber color reminiscent of a darker apple juice. Head quickly disappears. Taste is super sweet and very heavy on apple which I guess was expected. Not much of a beer feeling from this one but it does taste good. No real tartness or sour coming through. Very easy to drink but definitely more sweet juice than ale. Thin mouthfeel. I will probably only try this once but not as terrible as you would think.

Broncowaldon (123) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Awesome big apple aroma. Liked the little darker yoe if apple sour. That way was not just apple cider, had some good body to it as well. Apple shoots through whole experience. Great brew.

BOSSbrewer (2507) - Arkansas, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle at a tasting thanks to Casey. Pours a very hazy brownish yellow with a slight head. Aroma is toffee apples caramel with some cinnamon. Flavor follows. Tastes like a fresh baked apple pie. Bottle was aged at least three years. Super nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nuffield (3769) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 24, 2015
The aroma was quite muted, with maybe a hint of sweetness and a little woodiness, but not unlike the floor of a bar after it has been beer-soaked. The first impressions upon tasting was of the palate--dense, rich syrupy, though not sickly sweet. Apple comes out at the front, with a little twang but mostly low sourness in the finish. Easy drinking, sweet. Bottle.
