A: The beer pours out of the bottle clear yellow and very bubbly. Despite, or perhaps because of, the bubbles, the head really is nothing but fiz. After a few minutes, there is no activity in the beer.
S: You don't really have to be close to the beer to realize it smells exactly like green apple Jolly Ranchers...which luckily I love. It smells like apple juice, or apple soda if such a thing exists. Extremely sweet, hard to tell this is beer. Weirdly, I like it.
T: The taste continues the Jolly Rancher theme, but is MUCH more smooth and less soda-like. Realistically the only thing I can taste is apples, maybe there's a slight malt presence on the backend. Very sweet, but not fake by any stretch of the imagination. As close to apple soda as you can get without me hating it.
MF: Light, carbonated well, and absurdly drinkable.
O: I love this beer. I need to get more of it. Extremely sessionable and something I could drink with dinner. New Glarus, how are you this good with putting fruit in beer?
