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.

Bottle pours a slightly hazy copper with a short lived fizzy head and no lace. The aroma is of spicy apples. The flavor is of spicy apple cider, with a very nice balance between the sweet and sour. The palate is fizzy, rich, and refreshing. Overall, itís quite good.

Shag (2585) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - NOV 26, 2004
The appearance is a dark golden color with little head. The aroma is apple juice. The flavor is really sweet with some apples and spices in there. Some sourness exists but it is overrided by the sweetness. The mouthfeel is a bit syrupy and sour. This was very nice fruit beer. Thanks again Facto.

Sweet nose of fresh apples is faint and fleeting, but very unique. Nice frothy white head that ligerns as a thin ring. Sparse lacing. Light, slightly hazy copper or orange/brown. Taste is stewed apples throughout. Slight cinnamon late, even a bit of heat. Palate is sharp up front then smooths out, but leaves a bitter aftertaste, like apple cores (hope they removed the seeds!). Extra credit for adventure.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 23, 2004
Apple sauce dominates the nose with a light but sharp tartness and baked brown sugar. Copper coloured with shy tan head that recedes to partial cover. Sweet brown sugar flavour is pregnant with apples and cinammon. Very nice, smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Bottle enjoyed with DYCSoccer17, MartinT, muzzlehatch, Omhper and Rastacouere.

omhper (19230) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - NOV 22, 2004
Bottled. Amber colour, no head.Lovely acidic green apple aroma. Very sweet and lightly funky with cidery apple flavour. Refreshing, and even though itís really sweet it doesnít get cloying.

12 oz bottle: lively pour. Coppery, strawberry blonde, with a fluffy, starched white head. Apple skin aroma with a slightly metallic undertones. Flowery, almost perfumed, notes surround a caramel malt sweetness. Pulpy, fresh cider flavour, initially a fruity sweetness (much better for me than a sugary sweetness)Öcinnamon wisps and green apples dance in a very balanced harmony and give way in the end to a lush malt backbone. Nice carbonation reminds me that this isnít just apple juice and overall I was impressed by my first apple beerÖ Thanks a bunch Santa...Eyedrinkale

Great! Facto provision number 2 - thanks!! Cinnamon and many different types of apple flavors abound - tart and sweet, quite leafy and twiggy, incredibly natural and authentic tasting. Looked absolutely beautiful, kept carbonation so perfectly, but what I really loved is the sheer number of separable apple types that must be in here. They all seem to swim throughout the flavor profile. Very good.

Rastacouere (6122) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2004
Deep orange robe, almost clear. Diminishing beige head. Direct apple compote nose overwhelms the senses. Shredded apple flesh thrown up the nostrils in a sweet fashion. Riped delicious (the brand) apple crustade, pie crust. Nice warming medium body, very comfortable, low carbonation. This is definitely interesting, but not in the leagues of the raspberry tart for instance. Maybe Iím just more of a raspberry guy, but this seems sweet and simple, which Iím aware the other one is also, but it fails to take on me and surpass futile concepts like caring about the complexity rather than overall enjoyment. Here, rather than smelling like a fresh harvest, it appears a bit oldish (which it sure isnít). I fear this wonít age well at all, but Iím very glad to have sampled it. Cheers Barry!

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2009 Heart-warming and tongue-moistening sweet and tart apple pie perfume and flavors...Less decadent than its Belgian Red and Raspberry Tart counterparts though, the apples fade into a smooth aftertaste, avoiding a cloying stickiness...Soft prickling helps the dessert functions but also makes it easier for us to see that this is not up to their 2 other fruit beersí standards...Nutmeg adds to the pie character, yet this is as juicy and drinkable as apple cider...Itís not saying much, but this is probably the best apple beer Iíve ever had...

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2011 12 oz bottle. hazy orange, red body. white head. aroma of apples, heavy sugar, and sweet breads...flavor of sparkling apple juice, heavy vanilla and frosting..very sweet and desert-like..a bit too sweet, and not as crisp and natural as it used to be
