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.

New Years bottle. Pours an orange amber body with a thin white lacing. Doesn’t taste like beer it tastes like apple juice. Apple skins, a late harvest cider, malty apple juice. I could have gone for some more tartness to balance out the body.

Lots of hype surrounding this one in these parts. Bottle, pour is somewhat effervescent, cloudy yellow/goldish, not much of a head. ARoma of apples, mostly like apple cider/juice. Taste is pretty much that too with a little wheat that comes in the finish. Medium to light bodied. Meh, not really my thing. Tastes mostly like apple cider.

Very pleasing aroma greets your nose, Great clarity with just the right amount of effervescence. Excellent blend of apples and beer. Good for special occasions. Enjoyed by all at ours. Another winner from New Glarus.

scoobysnak (333) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 30, 2008
Another good fruit beer from New Glarus. Definately fruit is there specialty. This beer makes me glad I live in Wisconsin. Great apple taste throughout. Some notes of vanilla and a good tartness that leaves you needing the next sip.

nbutler11 (1267) - Rota, SPAIN - DEC 29, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Ed at Heritage Liquors. Pours a welcoming cider color with no discernable head. You can smell the apples from across the room. Tastes like the best apple cider ever, but at 3.8% I felt let down. Put this in a brandy barrel or you might as well put a straw on the side. Otherwise, its gonna get used in a sauce.

Bottle from Heritage splitsies with nbutler11. Full aroma of Braeburn and Granny Smith apples with hints of vanilla and light spice. Deep golden color. Flavor as above, but I am of the mind that fruit beer is easy to make good with a sub-4 ABV. This maybe would be best as part of a reduction...

danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 25, 2008
Bottle. Pours a copper cider brown with a small white head. Lots of apple cider to the nose. Same apple cider flavors with nice hints of vanilla and very slight oak. Incredibly smooth mouth. Tasty!

sebletitje (7887) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 25, 2008
courtesy of cigarcitybrew. Could this one replace my New Glarus all time fav. of Belgian Red? They are so close, and so unique in their style. New Glarus has once again top the quality with this ale. Pours copper with thin white head. Aroma is loaded with the bubbly nose of apple juice, close enough to remind me of an excellent cider. New Glarus is not joking around with the fruits, and they are using some fine apples. Taste is loaded with apples and very faint malts. Not only do we get some fine apple taste, there is also a very light bitter feel of the apple skin. The whole is mixed with a very light bubbly finish.

HonkeyBra (3797) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - DEC 25, 2008
Pours a sparkling copper with a white head. Aroma smells like apple cider and cinnamon. Tastes a lot like fresh, sparkling apple cider, with a bit of malt and bitterness in the finish. Pretty awesome.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Retorp by way of TheCheeseMan. Pours a pale copper with a small white head. Aroma is strait up Red Delicious, not much else but it smells like fresh pressed red apples. Taste is the same as aroma with a hint of sweet malt in the finish. Medium mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness. Very good.
