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.

Aroma is apples and grainy/sweetish malts. The flavor is apples, fruit, mild effervescent body, malts and a tart finish.

Apple cider with thin white head. Aroma of apples, cinnamon and sweet malts. Taste of apples. Tart and creamy with a dry astringent finish. Reminds me of biting into an apple (shocker). Smooth but watery.

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.

12 oz bottle. Poured a clear medium orange color. Head was very fizzy and reduced to nothingness in less than a minute. Smelled of biscuity malt and apple juice. Dry on the tongue with delicate acidity. Tasted predominantly of apple cider with a biscuity malt backbone. Eh.

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.

Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head.

The aroma is very apple-y, sort of sweet smelling, with some tartness and a fair dose of yeastiness.

The flavor is banana bread right up front, this turns to more focus on tart apples and light toasted malt. The beer is fairly sweet, perhaps a little too sweet. I like the apple flavor here no doubt.

12oz bottle 5/3/14 (Woodmans- Waukesha)-Pours a clear goldfish amber with a small white covering. Aroma of caramel apple. Taste of tart, apple, bitterness, and sweetness. This light bodied brew is a bit different but still tasty.

12 oz bottle. Clear orangeade with a fluffy white head that leaves some spots. Odd nose of apple yoghurt and starch. A crisp apple bite quickly fades to hay and lemon cookies. Medium light, minimal carb.

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.

Thanks Dave. The beer pours to a bright orange amber body that’s 100% filtered with a white head. The aroma is cheap crappy macro lager with a dash of apple cider. The flavor is actually decent with a dry apple cider but no residual sugars as it finishes really clean and drinks like water. Tart apple cider meets toasty pale malts. Average tart cidery palate. Simplistic but would be refreshing on a really hot day.
