12 oz bottle into a snifter. Pours an ever so hazy golden amber with some flimsy white edging. Aroma is clearly apples, a nice blend of tart and sweet. A bit of wheat and spice on the end. Taste is similar, very tasty and fresh apple juice with a grainy/wheat finish and a lingering sweetness. Crazy delicious. Crisp and medium bodied, never syrupy or cloying. This is scary drinkable and the best apple influenced beer I’ve ever had. Awesome! mattyb83 (737) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 6, 2010
From a bottle. Looks like apple cider in the glass with a small bubbly head. Subtle aroma with apples, maybe some honey, and some slight spice. Flavor is sweet caramel with apples becoming present towards the finish. Beer is mainly sweet with just a hint of tartness in the finish. This is much sweeter than I had desired, and the apples seemed to play a minor role. When the apple flavor finally hit this beer is quite nice, but it is such a small part of this beer which resembles a watery apple juice to me. twindadplus2 (736) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 2, 2009
Clear coppery brown with a thin film of a head. To get an idea of the aroma just take a Red Delicious and take a big whiff. That’s exactly what you’re getting from this beer. Flavor of fresh cider with a bit of tartness to keep the sweetness from overwhelming the brew. Crisp, dry, sweet finish that lingers for some time. I couldn’t drink a lot of these but it’s a nice change of pace. Naka (719) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Once again, bottle courtesy of Juart. Pours amber golden with a small frothy off-white head. Aroma is a tart malty apple juice. A little sweetness in the taste, but really has a lot of apple character. Pretty dry overall. Some tartness carries from the flavor to the taste. Has a lot of tight effervescence. And excellent balance with this beer. Finishes with a decent richness. Not too fruity. Very well done. WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 5, 2009
Bottle. Clear golden color, a few strands of carbonation emanating up from the bottom. Thin wispy head. Flavor is big fresh apple notes, some golden delicious and also Macintosh. Dry to begin, sweet medium, dry finish. Flavor is so big and fresh that you can taste a bit of apple rind in there. Wow, this is like some exceptionally good apple juice. Well done. New Glarus does fruit beers like no other.

Pours out like a crisp apple cider color with thin bubbly head. Aroma is intense apple cider aroma with floral bouquet. Taste is like apple sauce and apple pie turned into carbonated liquid. The mouthfeel is great, it’s not to cloying or imbalanced. Good stuff. Wish I had more! Jabic (702) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Ar: Lots of tart apples, hay, a bit of funk.
Ap: Clear golden-amber - medium off-white head with good retention, nice ring of lacing.
T: Very tart apple, but sweetness mellows the tartness - apple juice and some light caramel - a little bit of vanilla - low bitterness with a long apple-y finish.
P: Medium-light body - creamy and lush - finish is medium-dry.
O: This apples embodied - malt, caramel, and vanilla give it some distinctiveness from a cider - delicious and fun! EricTeusink (702) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 4, 2014
I love apple beverages. Apple Cider, apple soda, apple juice. This beer reminded me of an alcoholic and slightly bitter version of the Jarritos apple soda. Pours a clear gold with white head. Scent is sour apple. Flavor has big refreshing bite which is magnified by the carbonation. Lovely. Bottle - Received in Trade BLADT (701) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle from brewer. Clean amber red. Tan head. Nose and taste are apple juice. Buttery and flavorful. Fresh. Nothing artificial. HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2005
Pours a hazy dark golden color with a bright white head. Smells like apple cider with spices. Flavor is like a spiked apple cider with carbonation. More sweet than sour which surprised me. Not sure if I would consider this a beer.
