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.

Not as bad as I had heard it was going to be. Pour was medium golden with a small off-white head. Aroma decorated with bitter apples, light cinnamon, maybe some nutmeg, and floral characters. The flavor was well blended and mellow. Again bitter apples accompanied the cream ale itself which seemed to work well together. There seemed to be a bit too much carbonation but overall it wasnít so bad. Could use some more spice overall for my own liking. Maybe worth a purchase but not a second.

Not a bad apple beer, but not a very good cream ale. But the drinking experience was decently pleasant, so where all this nets out in my mind is with a pretty average rating, but should earn extra consideration from those looking for something unique and different to try. It poured a pretty dark caramel color, with decent white head formation. Aroma was definitely apple...and cidery, with some caramel maltiness under it all. Flavor was rather caramel-y up front which I didnít find particular appropriate for a cream ale but tasted pretty good. The apple character was notable but not overpowering. In the taste (versus the smell) aroma was less like cider and more like bitter apple. Mouthfeel was pretty unremarkable. Not bad. Iíd weakly recommend it.

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.

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.

Orange color. Smell of malt, Granny Smith apples, spices and a hint of caramel. Taste of apples, malt, bread, spices and flowers. Acidic and dry.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2014 Hazy copper color with small head. Sweet woodsy apple aroma. Taste - pleasantly surprised as I wasnít expecting much. I was expecting a cider which Iím not too fond of and instead I got a cream ale with some sweet and tart apple flavors. Not as acidic as a cider and you get the grainy beer backbone. This is unique and a fine summer session ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Is it a cider or a beer? Not a bad hybred brew great apple flavor, nice carbonation and a good amount of sweetness from the malts. I liked it, and it was a fun beer to drink

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2008 Not big on fruit beers but this was awsome. soft smooth apple taste not very sweet. Those you like Strongbow should try this. RE-Rate Apple stays on the palate and lingers with the slight tart from the apple.
