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.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2012
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 thatís 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: Iím glad the base brown ale malts still have some say in the taste and it doesnít come off as a cider. A nicely put together beer with the main focus being the apples. Definitely a nice fall treat. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-03-2012

OK so Iíve ticked this but havenít rated it. But it deserves a rate because it is so good. More of a beer than a cider, New Glarus is king of fruit beers...I donít think any other brewer really comes close. This is just a treat. World class, in fact. Itís like apple pie in a bottle with a kick.

Awesome copper color and clear. Aroma of fresh apples. Flavor of tart green apples with a champagne like fresh apple cider finish, with some mild malts rounding it out.

Frozer (203) - Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2015
Poured into a pint. Copper apple juice like color. Same aroma, fresh pressed apples. Perfect apple flavor. Not too much like a beer and not too much like and overly sweet cider. Low carbonation fits the bill.

Outstanding apple ale. Juicy apples dominate the aroma and the sharp, snappy finish, yet in between is the sweetness of the wheat and full body of the brown ale -- very different and welcomed in a fruit beer. Enjoyed from an October 2014 bottle (still great after nine months in the beer fridge).

JMerritt (1890) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2015
Bottled. Orange-scarlet in color, hazy, with a very small, fizzy white head - looks just like fresh pressed apple cider. Aroma is of straight apple cider. Flavor is mildly sweet and increases in intensity. There is a bit of tartness in the end, almost like cranberry. A unique apple ale, very cidery without being overly alcoholic.

Pours an amber color with minimal head. Flavor is crisp and refreshing, tart apple, well balanced. Overall a fantastic apple ale.

rosenbergh (8556) - 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
