12oz bottle. Fairly clear gold pour. Not much head and no lacing or retention. Nose is apple. Taste is apple. Fairly similar to sparkling cider but not as sweet. Crisp and refreshing. I really like this for what it is.

Labeled as apple ale.... Best new glaraus beer I have had. Not so candy apple or overly sweet. Matts_Property (837) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 3, 2012
Bottle split with mcberko. Pours a hazy copper orange with next to no head. Aroma of subtle clean fresh apples, some creaminess - possibly vanilla, also some apricot and caramelised sugar. Flavour is as expected from the aroma, delicately sweet, crisp, refreshing, nothing offensive. Similar to a pleasant cider. Decent session beer. asedzie (835) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours a bubbly copper with medium beige head that quickly disappears. Nose is enticing - a big aroma of freshly sliced apples dominates, also caramel notes, some bready yeast. Flavor and palate are absolutely superb - such a rich full medley of tart-sweet apple flavors that I feel the salivation in the sides of my cheeks begin as it crosses my tongue - really, that good. The density and flavors of the apple sugars are complex - some like golden raisins, some like sweet reisling grapes, some deeper notes of candied apple and roasted apple pie filling - an onrush of sweetness that is punctuated by a final mildly tannic note of subdued tartness. Blissful.

12 oz. brown bottle thanks to Skyview. A golden brown beer with a small head. The aroma has apples(duh!!), but comes off as a fermented apple juice. The taste is sweet and apple and not all that different than apple juice but with some alcohol. This is a lot like a cider. RickTStiles (827) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2011
pours clear rose’ with no head or lacing. aroma is very sugary with strong apple notes. taste is sweet and body is syrupy. there’s almost a sour ale quality here but the apple predominates with cranberry in the background. finish is sweet but light. dreamflower (794) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 11, 2013
Beverage shared with northropfrye. This had an amazing aroma. I really did love this beer quite a lot. sthlm (790) - Blank, Alabama, USA - OCT 28, 2007
UPDATED: APR 8, 2009 [Bottle, thanks JK!] Pours amber with a very small off-white head. Medium body, good finish. The aroma and flavor were intense apple with some cinnamon and nutmeg. While I didn’t like this as much as the Belgian Red or Raspberry Tart, this is still yet another excellent New Glarus fruit beer. Re-rate: Didn’t really get any spices with this new batch, just straight apple. Almost was like a sparkling cider it was so apple heavy. I really enjoyed drinking it, and it was insanely drinkable...but to be honest it is very one dimensional. Still, I could drink this all day, so I am going to up the overall a bit.

I was suprised to find this on tap at Landmark Lanes when I went in there tonight. A very apple ale, not like a woodchuck. Has a bit of a spice taste to it.
