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

Halfway between a cider and a beer, this doesn’t do either much justice. There is a slight spritz with the iny bubbles, but not much else worth noting.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2010 12oz bottle split with Ann. Filtered orange tan color. Pleasant apple juice aroma. Sweet cidery taste, sour. Some sweet maltiness in there but still dominated by apple tartness. Well balanced and non-artificial, quite refreshing. Excellent palate cleanser. The creamy tastes start to shine through as the beer warms.

Pours copper with almost no head to speak of. Aroma is somewhat skunky and a bit yeasty, though there are some apple tones in there as well...a bit confusing! Flavor is somewhat odd and flat up front with some malt and corn flavors, with a dose of sweet apple in the middle, and then some bitter notes at the end...again, very confusing. Somewhat cider-like, somewhat beer-like, this one just doesn*t want to fit any profile. Palate is pretty mundane, though I*m not buying that this is a cream ale (though I know it says so on the bottle)...one is enough on this brew...

Thanks for sharing, Mark. A dark gold body with a white head. The aroma has some woody sweet apples along with flowers. The taste has some light apple core and wood. Flowery in the taste. Decent.

Pours golden clear with off white head. Floral hop and apple aroma with a bit of fresh toast. Taste to match with more apple.

Juelze (1138) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 28, 2008
Pours a clear golden color with thin off white head. Aroma is of light floral hops, apple and roasted grains. Taste is much the same with the apple becoming a bit upfront, but never over the top. Finishes pretty easy.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 28, 2008
Pours a watered-down gold color, with no head and a few spots of lacing. Aroma is dry, with slight apple peel, and basement. Taste is apple peel, with a weird nutty malt note. Has some refreshing carbonation, and is pretty refreshing. But nothing special. It is no cream ale, though.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 17, 2008
Bottle pours clear amber with very little head or lace. The aroma is of dry white wine. The flavor is a strange blend of a sour apple fruit ale, with a disjoint lingering malt note that does not flow together well. The palate is rather sritzy and somewhat refreshing. Overall, this one is not great.

Bottle. Clear, dark golden pour with almost no head. Slight aroma of apple with some alcohol and grain. Flavor is much nicer. More apple, spice and some tartness that comes through more as the beer warms.

On tap. A cloudy golden color. Aroma is light apple, some malt as well. Flavor is sweet, slightly tart. Solid.
