Apple Cider assault on the senses. Wonderful rendition of a fruit beer. Best cider alternative I've had

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Slightly hazy deep amber. Medium white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Smells like apple juice, but a little less sweet. A little bit of an earthy aroma.

Taste - Unsweetened apple flavor. Earthy maybe isn't the right descriptor anymore. Slightly acidic. Then the sweet apple juice kicks in. Finishes like apple juice.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Well carbonated.

Overall - It's pretty good, but apple just isn't an interesting enough fruit for me.

Such an amazing apple flavor. It is not artificial at all. Nice and sweet with some mild tartness. New Glarus can do no wrong with fruit beers.

Kinda funky. Like sweet apple candy. Just too sticky, sweet for my liking.
