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.

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...

Thanks to jsquire for bringing this one to our Fort Wayne Tasting last Friday night. Small fizzy off-white head with sparse lacing, transparent, orange copper hue, and fast rising carbonation. Aroma was malty, caramel, sweet, and yes, apples! Flavor was sweet, acidic, tart, sour, malty, caramel, and apples. Tingly mouthfeel.

Bottled. Acquired in a trade with joeybgood. Thanks Joe! Copper colored with a small tan head.Aroma is wonderful! Mild apple, light spice (cinnamon), and maybe raw sugar. Taste is strong apple but mostly sweet than sour. Light sugary notes and spice. Body is light and very refreshing. Finsihes with more apple and spices. Some sucrose as well. Great beer!

Bottle. Nice apple cider color. Head is off-white and medium lived. Moderate lacing. Smells like apple cider. Bright, fresh apple flavor. A little tart and then sweetness at the finish. Strange mix, but I liked this.

Another New Glarus beer provided by Matt (MrFacto)! Much in line with their other fruit beers, this has a champagney quality that enhances the sweet, full apple flavors and brown sugar. Quite vinous in the aftertaste. One part cider, one part champagne, one part beer. Misses the sharp acidic bite of their Raspberry Tart and Belgian Red (due to the nature of the fruit being used) which places this slightly below those beers on the ratings list. Glad I got a chance to try this one!

Pours a transparent read with a thin head. Aroma of cider, malt, caramel, and a slight pie spice. Flavor is of cider, malt, caramel, and spice. Excellent fresh crisp taste. A little sweet near the end but excellent none the less.

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - NOV 9, 2004
Nice coper brown w/small head. Gorgeous nose of apple cider with light spice notes. Medium weight w/sweet cider finihs and lingering apple flavors. More than apple, I ican almost pick out hte different varieties. Fresh with just the right sweetness, almost like a hard cider but w/a malty lushness that is so clean and beautiful! WOW

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2007 Light brown-amber. Almost no head. Aroma is sweet-tart apples. Strong apple taste is very good but almost overwhelming. Some cinnamon and caramel in the aftertaste. Taste like itís right from the cider mill. I could drink this for breakfast.
