3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle served in a Duvel Green tulip.
A: Pours a solid amber color with a one finger height of white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin collar.
S: Green sour apple jolly ranchers are big on the nose. There is a sold malt undertone to it with some red apple sweetness.
T: A touch of jolly rancher up front, but it quickly gives way to a nice, bright red apple flesh with just a smidgen of raw apple skin. The finish is slightly mealy like an apple core that’s been set out exposed to the air too long, but not in a bad way. The malt base gives it a touch of sweetness and a little heft to the body.
M: Medium to light bodied with a nice medium high carbonation level. The finish is malty and sweet.
O: I’m glad the base brown ale malts still have some say in the taste and it doesn’t come off as a cider. A nicely put together beer with the main focus being the apples. Definitely a nice fall treat.

Murky brown pour which kind of looks like apple cider. Single finger white head. Aroma of apple cider. Taste is like apple cider, but as a beer. Sweet apples. You can literally taste every bit of the apple from the fruit to the peel. A little lace present. Unreal what New Glarus can do with fruit.

Bottle shared by ippopotamo36 (thanks Alberto!). Pours amber with a minimal head. Aroma of apple, cinnamon, amaretto, maple syrup. Flavour is very sweet, unbalanced, rough. Light body, light carbonation. Not my cup of tea.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a copper hue into a pint glass. Smelled of apples with a hint of other fruit beers from New Glarus. Tasted of apples with a bit of bitterness coming from the beer side. Another winner from New Glarus.
