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.

A cleaner, less rotten tasting version of the average cidre. A strong effort.

muddy orange, strong granny apple aroma, rich apple flavor, not at all like a cider, not sweet or bitter, like drinking a dry apple butter

Bottle from noncaloric. Thanks so much. Pours a nice golden color with a quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is crisp and clean and apples apples and more apples. Flavor is a shocker APPLES. Tart and sweet with one thing that differentiates this from ciders it actually finishes with the slightest beer flavor. A wonderful change of pace and my wife will be very happy.

hopscotch (10642) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2005
Bottle... Clear, copper/amber ale with a small, creamy, white head and decent retention. Rich, lightly spicy, fruity aroma. Silky, sweet, malty flavor. Not cloyingly sweet. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Short, enjoyable, fruity finish. All that said, this brew tastes like fresh apples! Another fun beer from New Glarus! Thanks to footbalm for the bottle.

12 oz bottle. From a trade with GT2. Thanks a lot!
Slightly cloudy copper colour with a small off-white head. Apples, strawberries, sweetness, mild sourness, toffee and malt in the aroma. The flavour is strawberries, sweetness, apples, fermented strawberries and some raisins. Quite complex but not necessarily all great. Still enjoyable and interesting brew.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2014 Bottle as shown. Pours a clear gold with paperthin white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is a strong apple and cherry. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet apple and tart finish. Easy to drink a very impressive Fruit beer from New Glarus.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2014 Bottle @ home, courtesy of TheAlum. Fairly clear, dark orange appearance with white head. Quite sweet apple cider, caramel malty nose. Slightly roasty apple, light caramel malty flavor with a dry finish. Interesting beer but I’ve had numerous other fruit beers from New Glarus that I find to be far superior. Update: really fun beer to get shitfaced on. Bonus points added.

"if your into apples, this is your ticket. New Glarus continues to prove their forte is in the fruit beers. many juice like qualities, but a deeper flavor abides here. clean as can be, crisp and refreshingly sweet and tart. i don’t know how you’d make an apple ale better. would be a perfect drink on a crisp autumn day."
