GABF 2004. I found a small treasure trove of old ratings sheets that I hadn’t enterred; this is one of them. Smells good, somewhat sweet and yeasty, but nothing to go crazy over. Was lightish bodied and not as sour as the Red or Tart, mostly sweet, with distinct flavor of MacIntosh apples (the red ones with the waxy skins). Good beer. nsquishee (641) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - NOV 20, 2010
Sweet spiced apple aroma. Pours an effervescent amber colored cider-like liquid. Fizzy head disappears quickly after pouring. Taste is sweet with very little maltyness. Palate is wonderfully crisp and bubbly. Very light with little alcohol, thus, it is very drinkable. Perfect for the holidays as an adult alternative to normal cider. Won’t fill you up while eating a heavy meal. Nice fruit beer. New Glarus really can’t be beat on fruit beers. kkleu357 (640) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Pours light copper with little head. Smells like apple cider. Very fruity aroma. Interesting flavor. Lots of apple flavor. Very tart. At the same time, lots of malt flavor. If you can imagine a nice amber beer with tart apples, blended oddly very nice, because it sounds horrible, but is actually great, this would be it. This is definitely not a cider. This is a must try if you want something different. jbrana (640) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Tastes like sparkling apple juice. Good balance of sweet and tart. Very good.

Bottle with James, Andrew, and Maggi. smells just like a sour apple candy. Taste is very apple juice like with some slight nuttiness. really easy to drink. mrjaxson (631) - .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). Bartzilla (624) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Super delicious. You can taste the ale part in this, but it’s mostly tart apple, but not like a hard cider. Very unique and tasty. Well done. weitz15 (622) - 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.
