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.

12 oz. bottle via trade with tytoanderso - Pours a clear golden color with a medium size off white head. Light lacing. Aroma is a soapy, faint apple. Flavor is light apple, very light grain, and light herbal hops. Light to medium body. Worth a try. Thanks Tyler.

12 oz bottle

This is the third release from Furthermore. Once again, they play it relatively safe. This is a decent cream ale but it does not stand out in a crowded field. On the other hand, it is just as good as Spotted Cow for what that is worth.

Aroma / Appearance - A huge billowing white tower of foam took over two-thirds of the glass before settling down to a thin half finger head. Not suprisingly, it has the appearance of carbonated apple juice. The aroma is applesauce, peaches, strawberries and homemade apple cider.

Flavor / Palate - An interesting mixture of flavors greets the palate from the first sip onwards. A combination of malt, Hersey’s chocolate, apple juice, peach cobbler and honeydew melons form a sweet mouthfeel. Despite plenty of apple flavors, it could be crisper instead of fading into the crowd of other tastes. There is little trace left after fifteen seconds. This would be nice for those times when you have people over who are used to drinking Budweiser. Otherwise, see if you can track down better examples for a tasting.

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

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. Didn’t know what to expect, but rather liked this one.

12oz, no date. Clear orange with a one finger off-white head. Light apple juice and light grain make up the aroma, along with some light biscuity malts. Much more apple cider in the flavor, though, now that I think about it, there is almost a Froot Loops quality to both the flavor and aroma. Light body with a moderate smooth carbonation. I wanted to like this, but nothing came together

madvike (2666) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 14, 2011
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 Glarus’s 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 didn’t 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.

More cider than beer, this has a light amber color with a small head. The aroma is apples, tart and tasty like from the orchard. the flavor is more apples, again tart and tasty. Smooth and easy. A nice beer for the fall.

dchmela (2610) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Nice reddish copper pour with no head and little carbonation. Very cider like. Tart apple, cider, and a little spice aroma. Smooth light malt and apple taste, not too much apple, a good balance. Decent.

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.

Nice brandy like appearance. The nose unfortunately was that of a hair salon. Grainy body with a sour, faintly apple finish.
