Bottle to glass. 12-23 tasting with armin and boody. (thanks to armin for bringing out the NG goodness with him from Wis) Pours a nice light gold, with very minimal head. Some caramel notes in there too. Smells a lot like apple cider, with some nice caramel malt in there. Tastes like a caramel apple at a wisconson apple fest. Even the wife liked it, which is saying something about how fruity this tasted. Finished just like a tart apple...juicy yet dry. Really a nice fruit beer.

Pours chill hazy amber, with some malt aroma and a flavor dominated by tart apple, wheat and touch of oak.

New Glarus does an awesome job with fruit beers and this is no exception. Pour is a nice golden pour with a frothy white head but no lacing. Aroma is...apple...duh...but not heavy, more of a light apple white wine. Flavor is sweet but only slightly so thats nice. Palate does wonders for this beer as its fizzy and thin. Typically wouldn’t like that but is perfect in this beer. Overall this was just fantastic.

Thanks to kmpitz2 for bringing one of these for tasting. This one pours an amber color with a very small head that dissipates quickly and doesn’t leave much lacing on the glass. Awesome aroma. Apples and more apples. Not tart or sour, but just a nice apple smell. Not sure how they did that and avoided the sourness. The flavor is excellent. Lots of non-sour apple flavor with some caramel. Wish I knew how they did this beer because I would brew it as my house beer. Loved it.

Notes from 11/26/2010
12 oz. bottle from Steve’s Madison
Ar: Lots of apple, obviously. Fall McIntosh and tart varieties dominate. Perhaps a touch of caramel malt.
Ap: Pours a golden amber with streaks of orange. Not a ton of head, but brilliantly translucent.
T: Lots of apple sweetness on the front, but not much tartness. This would be exponentially better with a bit tart punch.
P: Champagne-like carbonation.
O: I remember this being significantly better during the last vintage (2008?). A big tart bite would have made this one great, but it just wasn’t there.

Poured a dark gold with minimal head with a light lace. Aroma of apple juice with slight malt backbone. Taste of apple with malt/beer background. Overall, a good beer for both the novice and the experienced drinker.

Another good fruit beer from New Glarus. Definately fruit is there specialty. This beer makes me glad I live in Wisconsin. Great apple taste throughout. Some notes of vanilla and a good tartness that leaves you needing the next sip.

Bottle. Pours amber with a small bright white head. Aroma is apples, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Flavor is alot of apple. Medium mouthfeel...This is exactly what it sounds like...and apple ale...fruity as hell....but delicious as hell.
