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.

A nice aroma gives this beer a very solid start, but it goes down hill from there... Color is a beautiful copper shade but I had absolutely no luck getting head from this beer...... the flavor is very apply and sweet. Right away it is kind of pleasent, but it quickly grates on my palate almost to the point of sickening. Another syrupy fruity overrated (in my opinion) beer from New Glarus...

Pours lightly hazy orange/apple juice. Nose of much tinned pie filling, apple, cellar and spiced cider. Not much acidity. Too sweet. Some cinnamon and nutmeg, brown sugar and traces of yeast funk. A little disappointing.

In short: An apple pie in a bottle. Light and extra clean. It is what it is, a little oddity fun in small quantities.
How: Bottles, 2008 unplugged release. Bottles received from MatSciGuy, thanks a lot Levi. Consumed fresh and shared at tasting session with Montreal crew.
The look: Clear golden body with almost no head
In long: Nose of apple pie with cinnamon. Taste is really apple pie with cinnamon, crisp crust and all. An overall sensation of crumble. Medium carbonation, very light body. This is a very very clean beer, a bit too sparkling clean for my liking. This beer has very little body and the mouthfeel is rather boring. I understand it’s a 3.8% beer but New Glarus have proven they can make nourishing full body fruit beer with a similar gravity. Also while this original taste is kind of fun the first few sips it quickly gets tiresome. On one hand I admire the originality of this offering but on the other hand this is not something I could drink regularly or in large quantities. So I have mix feeling about it like a cheap fat Texan standing in front of a free all-you-can eat fruits and vegetables buffet.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - JAN 26, 2009
Bottle. Poured a pink-tinged golden color with a short-lived, thin off-white head that diminished to a light ring. Aroma of red apples, cherry pie filling, some sugary sweetness, and a faint wheatiness. Smooth, lightly sweet entry with some tart hints of apple that finishes with a cidery sweetness. Low carbonation, sweet on the palate. Overall, too one dimensional for my tastes. It seemed more like a sweet cider. I’ll stick with the Berliner weiss.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 16, 2004
Cooked apple aroma escapes on uncapping the bottle...let’s pour first before further comment...amber hue, apple cider-y, slightly hazy, mostly clear, without a head to speak of...nose is pungent, snappy, appley all the way, tart, and hot...Taste? Sour twang at first, then sweetness ensues...bracing mouthfeel, then mellow...juicy, high carbonation, tasty, tingly...though it fades a bit toward the end...not bad. No, actually, it’s okay. Not what I like, but it’s sure to suit plenty of tastes out there...here’s to them!

Medium-dark golden, bright. Light watery-apple aroma. Thickish in the mouth (at least compared to cider) Gently spicy apple flavor shows only the merest hints of appley tartness. Plenty sweet in the finish, becomes extremely sweet as it warms, even cloying. Some musty apple character comes forward as well. I’m not impressed.

11 year old 750ml bottle shared at a tasting. Thanks!
Obviously not the same beer it was, but poured an apple juice color with no head. Smell is apple juice with some syrupy sweetness. Taste is dull and likely oxidized, but very apple like. A lot like the belgian red, but with apples instead. Some tartness and almost no carbonation. Pretty much just apple juice, but I would still like to try this one fresh when it is re-released.

joergen (22429) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 11, 2010
Bottle at Papsř. Clear golden coloured with a medium sized white head. Fruity aroma of caramel and apples. Fruity flavour of caramel and apples. Fruity finish. Well made, but I don’t like the combination of apple and beer.

BeerandBlues2 (10496) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Bottle from Ratman. Pours clear copper with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is average malt (bread, cereal), light hops (earthy), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of cinnamon, apple, and earth. Flavor is average malt (bread, biscuit, cookie), light hops (earthy), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of buttered, cooked apples with cinnamon; faint crust notes. Light body, low warmth and creaminess, medium carbonation with a dry finish.
