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.

Poured a clear reddish-brown color with a quickly diminishing head. Looked and tasted much like apple cider, and the carbonation was even similar. This hint that this is still beer is the light-to-medium malt backbone. I am not a huge fan of fruit beers, but this was a very good example of the style.

04.30.05 Thanks to Facto for this 12oz bottle. There’s something about adding apples to anything that gives it that characteristic brownish-rust color, and this one is no exception. Smaller head fades quickly. Aroma is all apples and maybe some hints of honey or maybe apples caramelized and mascerated with sugar. Whatever, it smells sweet and tastes even sweeter. Huge apple goodness with plenty of tart apple cider and even a ciderish oxidation, kind of metallic like the brown spots on a bruised fruit. It’s a bit hard for me to find the beer in this stuff, as it’s mostly fruit, but it’s so lip smacking fantastic. lighter hints of butter and white sugar, as with an apple pastry. Why is it so hard for other brewers to make a good fruit beer while New Glarus has the midas touch with the stuff? Thanks a million for this one, Matt!

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2005 Thanks to lamas (via StewardofGondor) for the bottle. 12 oz. bottle. Pours a nice copper tone; looks like apple juice. Head fizzles away very quickly leaving a tiny ring of white lace. Aroma isn’t overpowering, but there is a nice apple scent and even a touch of cinnamon. Very sweet and finishes tart. Leaves a nice apple aftertaste. I can’t imagine a better tasting apple beer, but the fact that I’m not in love with this beer makes me think that apples and beer don’t mix.

Pours a dark copper color with a ring of white lace. Good aroma of apples and bananas. Good flavor of apples, bananas, malt and barley sugar.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - APR 25, 2005
A warm copper pour with a small layer of off-white head. A wonderful play between carmelly sweetness and tart apple in the nose, with some wonderful forest-in-fall aromas. Remarkably nice. Sweet apple predominates in the taste, but a pleasant malty base makes it clear this is still beer. Palate is surprising and very different. In spite of the sweetness, it has a crisp enough finish to avoid cloying stickiness. The sweet Auslese of beer. Thanks hezron, for a chance to taste this before it’s all gone...

Goldorak (439) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2005
Rusty nail/copper colored with a weak head that fizzed off quickly. Banana, and appleseed aroma. Hefe yeast? I couldn’t find anything on the website about it, so who knows... Taste is like banana nut muffins with a side of apple sauce, a bit too sweet for me, I like my fruit Beers on the tangy side better. It did remind me of a defunct Québec Beer that I used to love, Hopps aux pommes from Brasal.

CapFlu (4616) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 24, 2005
(Bottle) Pours a dark, cloudy amber body with a thin, almonde coloured head. Nose of apple Slush Puppy. Very pitted, banana flavour with a sweet malt base. A tad syrup and artificial. Not my style but very good none the less. Many thankis to Muzzlehatch for sharing this at the 1st Annual Ciderwinder Tasting in Ottawa...

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - APR 17, 2005
Pours hazy dark orange with a thin greyish head. Strong apple aroma with hay notes. Mostly sweet. Apples, apples and apples in the flavor with hints of cinnamon. Quite sweet and full. Good, but very different.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2005
Looks like a sparkling apple cider with a small fizzy head. Smells of apple butter, yeast and cinnamon. Flavor is most prominently apples (that’s a given) and cinnamon. Smooth, sturdy ale, looks thinner than it feels on palate, with a body similar to a thick cider. Accentuated carbonation and a sweet tartness - paired with caramel malts - help to balance the beer. Like a sweet, freshly dipped caramel apple. Finish is crisp and sweet. Courtland apple tartness fades and gives way to Jonathan apple sweetness. This is one that makes me proud of Wisconsin’s farming tradition.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 5, 2005
A brown beer with no head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of apples. The flavor is sweet with an OK presence of apples as well as slight notes of malt, and a dry end.
