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.

Instead of an apple ale I feel like this taste more like an apple cherry raspberry sour. Really good!

Delicious! This is how I always wanted hard cider to taste, but it never does. Tastes and smells like actual apples and is not too sweet.
