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 “everyman’s” beer makes for a festive and potent brew.

It is light clear amber with almost no head. The aroma is light sweet aplle tart with a bit of creaminess. The body is lighter with apple up front and tartness, with both flavors settling and ultimately finishing it off.

I guess I hadn’t appreciated, when I read the front label, that it was actually brewed with apple cider. But now that I see that, it helps to explain a bit. Definitely tart, though not as deliciously acidic as a good cider; murky body is echoed in the somewhat messy flavors, with a thicker than normal palate from the cream ale influence. But I have to echo the comments made by others that I would just prefer a good cider. And, for that matter, I would prefer a cream ale, too. Bottle.

Sort of tastes like a mediocre cider with a bit of beer added to it. Very carbonated mouthfeel that while it doesn’t ruin the beer makes the front end not too enjoyable. The apple flavor is very predominant moreso than the cream ale. I wouldn’t go out of my way for this one..might as well get a nice cider instead.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with Ughsmash. If ever there was a beer that poured like a soda, this one is it. Pours just like a clear apple juice with a fizzy white head and lots of fat carbonation bubbles quickly rising to the surface. Very spritzy like a glass of soda. The head is gone within a minute and leaves no lace. Aroma of weak malt and apple. The flavor is again weak malt with some apple. Very low bitterness at the finish. On a positive note, this beer is refreshing, but then again, so is a glass of water. Mediocre.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2009 Bottle courtesy of my wonderful boyfriend. Pours a sparkling clear amber colour with a frothy white head. Aroma of vinegar, apples, grains and light spice. Flavour of tart apples, corn, vinegar, yeast and maybe a hint of malt. Very tart and bitter.

12oz. Bottle: Sweet aroma of light apples and grains. Poured amber/apple juice in color with a small, off-white head that diminished quickly but lasted around the edges only. Clear. Slightly sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of apples, apple juice, and slight bready malt. Light to medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Apple juice and grain finish is slightly dry.

12 oz bottle purchased at Blue Max in Burnsville, Minnesota. Pour is clear golden orange with a few visible carbonation bubbles and a frothy one inch white head that falls fast. Aroma of grainy malt, corn and brightly sweet apple juice. Taste is exactly the nose; grainy malt, corn huskiness and sweet apple juice. Palate ios thin to medium, coats the mouth a bit, lingering corny apple taste. This tastes exactly like a cream ale with apple juice - just as the label says so extra point for that. However, I don’t think I am wild about this marriage.

apple juice colour with a medium white head. aroma is light apple and earthy biscuity malt. lively effervescent mouthfeel. Good tart apple flavour. The medium sweetness of the cream ale backs the apple and does help with body.
