Poured from 12oz bottle. Pours caramel in color, looks and smells like apple cider. There is little to no head at all on this, but a nice amount of carbonation. Taste is similar to a dry apple cider. CpyNPrnT (616) - Indiana, USA - OCT 23, 2015
Aroma of apples, taste is more apples, apples, and some mild alcohol. Tasty. hezron (614) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 24, 2005
Pours a murky, dark amber-brown with a diminishing off-white head. Initial earthy yeast aromas. Strong aromas of apples come through and build as the head fades. Very brilliant apple flavors while staying complex. The malt and hops tame the apple, keeping it from tasting like pure apple juice. Malt has flavors of caramel and brown sugar, perfect compliments to the apple. Body is medium, creamy with a lively carbonation. I wish they would keep brewing this. jeffin7 (613) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - NOV 11, 2004
Pours a transparent read with a thin head. Aroma of cider, malt, caramel, and a slight pie spice. Flavor is of cider, malt, caramel, and spice. Excellent fresh crisp taste. A little sweet near the end but excellent none the less.

Bottle, pours brown-hinted gold. Good, lively head that quickly dissipates to almost nothing. Nose is fresh apples, a bit of sour apple Jolly Rancher as well. Just apple apple apple. Taste follows suit: crisp, fresh apples, hints of cider. Straightforward, wonderful.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2012 Aroma: crisp apples, smells sweet like cider, a touch of cereal grains but predominantly strong apple aroma.
Appearance: Brilliantly clear light amber, fizzy white head with slightly below average retention, some spotty lacing.
Flavor: prominent apple flavor, slight sweetness, a touch of light grains. Not a lot of complexity, but very good.
Palate: medium body, fairly high carbonation, nice crisp finish.
Overall: an excellent, extremely drinkable fruit ale. Delicious. Jabic (588) - 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! BierMeHoos (587) - Maryland, USA - NOV 2, 2015
Where: Neighbor brought back a variety from a trip home to Wisconsin, forever grateful. How: 12 oz bottle, shared at a neighborhood tasting. Appearance: Pours a golden amber transparent beer with a finger head. Aroma: Apple and more apples. Taste: Pretty much all apples, kind of like apple juice. Palate: Lighter side of medium-bodied. Overall: Not as highly rated as some of their others, but a pretty good NG beer. mrjaxson (586) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Outstanding apple ale. Juicy apples dominate the aroma and the sharp, snappy finish, yet in between is the sweetness of the wheat and full body of the brown ale -- very different and welcomed in a fruit beer. Enjoyed from an October 2014 bottle (still great after nine months in the beer fridge). weitz15 (585) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Sweet, tangy aroma, and cloudy red pour with an off-white head. Sticky, sweet body. Flavor is full of apple with a sour finish.
