Poured from a bottle into a D'Achouffe tulip. The pour is a coppery orange with about a finger of white head that quickly dissipates. The nose is very cidery, with notes of apple juice, grapes, and white wine.
The beer has a light-medium body, a nice firm feel, and a sharp, fruity flavor. The flavor follows the nose well and the beer is very cider-like in its profile (minus some tannins). Lots of sweet, refreshing flavors of fresh red apples greet your palate up and down. Not as acidic as I thought it would be, but there is definitely a faint tartness that keeps the sweetness from overpowering the profile. Towards the back of the palate, there is an appetizing, wine-like dryness that readies your mouth for a quick next sip. Very refreshing.
Another outstanding entry in New Glarus' ``Thumbprint'' series. This is the third one I've had and have thoroughly enjoyed each one of them. My hats off to this amazing little brewery that's been around longer than many people realize (and thanks to Ri0 for hooking me up). I really envy our Wisconsin BAs for being able to get these outstanding beers so easily.
