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.

Great dessert beer. Really joyed this after a nice rich meal. Don't normally love beers this sweet but I would recommend this for certain situations.
