COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
My goal in building the recipe for Fallen Apple was to create a seasonal specialty that was in and of itself a celebration. I start with fresh-pressed cider from early harvest apples we get from Kickapoo Orchards in Gays Mills. Fermentation leaves the cider tart and champagne-like. I then brew a cream ale designed to put some sweetness and body back into the beer, which rounds out the sour apple notes. This combination of ethereal apple flavor grounded in an ďeverymanísĒ beer makes for a festive and potent brew.

Tap. Clear golden color. No head and only a small ring around the neck of the glass. Aroma is sweet and apple like. Reminds me of apple jolly ranchers. Taste is slightly tart like green apples. Fairly thin as that is all I realt get. Still reminds me of apple jolly ranchers. Could use some more carbonation. Just looks dead and lifeless.

Bottle. Pours a straw yellow with a fizzy white head. Weak apple aroma with a hint of grains. Flavor was sweet apples, grainy malts and a touch of tartness.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

Found this cider beer comba at the Ba Runi. Smells a little like apple. Taste is of course apple cider with more apple than I expected. Lager beer fer sure in the background. Looks like pale lager. Borders on sweet, a little more sweetness than I expected for a cider like beer. Iím used to the dry ciders, now. Decent co2. Not bitter to say the least. Yes, just simply an apple falvored beer, not many of those out there. Finish is just plain apple lager even tho it says cream ale on the label.

12 oz bottle. It pours a light apple juice color with a foamy white head. Smells like apple juice mixed with vanilla icing. Cream ales just arenít my thing I guess. It is like drinking vanilla/malt/apple flavored soda. Non beer drinkers will like it Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-28-2010 22:28:32

Straw yellow-orange with a white fizzy head. Aroma of grain, and apple. Lots of apple flavor-sweet, tart with just a hint of grain. Decent carbonation-like a champagne. Didnít know what to expect, but rather liked this one.

A: The beer is super carbonated and the pour results in a massive white head that takes quite some time to settle down. Eventually one can see a clear orange-straw colored beer. S: Thereís definitely a big cider note to the nose which provides a nice apple sweetness to it. Thereís some light malt notes and a slight tartness as well. Itís pretty simple, but not bad. T: Sweet apples and grain/malt up front. Thereís a lot of cider notes to it and really not all that much of the cream ale. Thereís a touch of spice, it seems, and a general fruitiness to it. M: The body is light to medium with a high level of carbonation. D: This and the New Glarus Apple Ale were/are pretty interesting. I liked it, but at some points I was thinking, I would rather just have a cider.

Bottle - Pours a clear golden amber with a fluffy white head. Not a lot of apple on the nose--kind of a sugary white grape/apple mix with some lactic sourness that almost borders on rotting. Not as crisp and clean as New Glarusís Apple Ale, and must sweeter than something like Ephemere. The taste...I gotta agree with a previous reviewer that called this apple cider with some light beer mixed in. It tastes like a blend that didnít quite integrate. The sweet/tart of the cider hits first, with the maltiness of the cream ale in the middle, and the apple peel and tartness lingering through the finish. An interesting mix, but one that ends up not working very well.

Blah. A boring fruit beer. Aroma was very weak. Could pick up a hint of apple if sniffed for a while. Pour was a medium gold with plenty of rising bubbles and a thin white ring for a head. Taste was like seltzer water with a mild sour apple aftertaste. Nothing more. Nice carbonation
