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.

One of the very best aromas of any beer Iíve ever had. Iím a fan of good ciders, but this smells better than any of those that Iíve had. Just tons of fresh apple. Good appearance, though, it could use a little more of a head. What is there is nice, though. Taste is full, lingering and delicious. I just love this beer.

Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs; thanks arminjewell). Looks good;a fairly transparent orange with foamy light caramel head. Smells of apples and mild related spices. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. A solid fruit beer.

Drank from bottle while freezing ass in Lake Placid NY. aroma is strong apples and sweetness. Actually get a lot of strawberry esters, interesting. Taste is sweet, apples and more strawberries. Maybe my brain is wired wrong... Decent fruit beer, but too sweet for me.

Lukaduke (2374) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Pours a glowing copper color with with a half finger of gaseous bubbles that fizzle out quickly. Nose is apple, pure soft sweet apple flesh with a hint of earthy must. Palate is softly carbonated with sweet apple notes that are layered with hints of cinnamon and applesauce with a lingering tannin to help clean up the sweetness on the finish.

This beer is awesome! Amazing aroma, awesome apple taste. Hints of the base beer soak thru and add to the complex and rounded experience. Do not pass this up. Crisp, clean, and delicious ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A spare head with spare lacing. Pours an amber color. Aromas of orange peel, bubble gum, and lots of fruit (apple, pear, peach, and cherry). Pure bliss from an aroma standpoint (yes, I like fruit beers). Definite fruit bouquet, in an AWESOME beer.

Stine (1628) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 3, 2014
A clear copper pour. This aroma is confounding, with a blending of gorgeous tart apple character and buttery, toffee malts that are persistently candy-like and cloying; this can reach the level of butterscotch schnapps or caramel coated green apple. This issue is cast aside in the brilliantly textured flavor, which offers a pure, tantalizing apple flavor unsullied by extra sugars or weird off colors. Moments of brown sugar, caramelized pear, and caramel can be perceived, all within the wide spectrum of the apple flavor. Mildly syrupy but always returning to crisp and drinkable, as is standard; juice box finish.
