look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle poured into a teku glass

Appearance: Pours a copper orange, brown color with not much head at all, but does settle to a thin ring. Body is clear with a few light amount of sediment.

Smell: Apple, apple juice, apple cider, red apple skin, light sweetness. One dimensional, but really nice.

Taste: Medium sweetness right away, followed by apple juice, cider-like spices, and finally a light bready/pie crust character to remind you that this is in fact a beer. Definitely a sweet beer but not even approaching cloying, and there's a very light tartness to balance it out.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and crisp with medium carbonation. Finishes semi sweet. Super drinkable.

Overall: Another excellent fruit beer from New Glarus. So much clean, crisp fruit character and incredibly easy to drink. Definitely worth trying if you have the chance.
