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.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2009 Well if anyone drinking this could ever tell this from a really good apple juice, i would be shocked. Bascially the beer equivilant to biting into a fresh, Door county apple. Goes down really fast. I really dont get any beer like qualities at all in this, but being a fan of apples in general, this was up my alley. Compared to Furthermores Fallen Apple, this was far and away better.

thanks to cmubeerman, i’ve had this a few times now. it’s pretty straightforward pure apple beer, but it’s good, too. 3.8%? pathetic, but i guess that’s the point. it basically tastes like carbonated apple juice. candyish. hardly any beer character, although andrew says that comes out more when its colder. damned drinkable, tho.

thanks goes out to pfoxyjohn for this thanksgiving day treat... Pours a dark tan autumn brown ... good white foam ring... wonderful fresh bitten apple scent ... is so delicious, i can never enjoy a cider again because this is what an apple libation should be, no more - no less, the standard if you will... i vote the apple to be the fruit of the year!

Ok, maybe more of a cider then a beer but damn, this stuff is just pure greatness. There is enough caramel malt finish that you get the beer part and it gives it a caramel apple finish. Just pure drinkability, and I will go through all the cases I bought in no time. Amazing.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Aroma is apples, sweet and a little musty. Pours a clear orange, thin white head spotty lace. Flavor is more and more apples, a little more cider than ale, but oh, the is palate so there, dry, chalky prickly, puckering. The beer is really more to be felt than tasted.

12oz bottle split with Ann. Clear, filtered orange color. Cidery, and full of apple taste. A little weak in ABV and body, but the full, natural apple taste is really quite impressive. Good stuff, but lacks a touch of depth. That said, this stuff is paradise juice.

12 oz bottle shared by John. Pour is the color of cider, orange golden, cloudy, then turned pretty clear, with a smallish white head. Aroma of sweet apples, again, very much cider. Taste is the apples, sweet, cidery. Well made, but pretty much all about apples. Thanks John

Crushed with Jakebra. Kinda like the middle of those suckers with the caramel without the caramel, and it’s beer instead of candy, which makes it excellent. A great fruit beer.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 16, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2008 Pours an amber color with a medium off-white bubbly head. Aroma is apple cider, and syrupy malts. I had high expectations for the taste......I was expecting it to be very carbonated, bright, and fruity. Based on that, I was a bit disappointed. The mouthfeel is flat and slightly syrupy. The combination of apples leaves a rather flat apple taste. Still very good........but it is a lot better in my head.

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2008 Bottle. Pours a nice golden amber color with a medium off white head. Aroma of apple cider, malt and light yeast. Taste is sweet apple cider with only a hint of malt. No alcohol was detected at all. Smooth and sweet. It is actually a little hard to tell that it is a beer. A small amount of tartness in the finish. A very different type of fruit beer.
