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.

This is certainly a really good fruit beer. Great aroma of apple and a huge head with alot of fizy carbonation in a hazy orange beer. I like the way this brewery infuses different flavors in their beers.

A: The beer is super carbonated and the pour results in a massive white head that takes quite some time to settle down. Eventually one can see a clear orange-straw colored beer. S: There’s definitely a big cider note to the nose which provides a nice apple sweetness to it. There’s some light malt notes and a slight tartness as well. It’s pretty simple, but not bad. T: Sweet apples and grain/malt up front. There’s a lot of cider notes to it and really not all that much of the cream ale. There’s a touch of spice, it seems, and a general fruitiness to it. M: The body is light to medium with a high level of carbonation. D: This and the New Glarus Apple Ale were/are pretty interesting. I liked it, but at some points I was thinking, I would rather just have a cider.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2014 Hazy copper color with small head. Sweet woodsy apple aroma. Taste - pleasantly surprised as I wasn’t expecting much. I was expecting a cider which I’m 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

Light body. Reminds me of Redds. Sweet caramel apple aroma. Pretty good tasting. Kind of tastes like Spotted Cow with apples. Slight banana flavors as well. Not up there with New Glarus Apple Ale, but would drink again.

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.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2006 Light grain aroma, no hop presence detected, light yeasty dough aroma. You can obviously taste the apples and the sweetness they bring. I liked the slight bitterness that compliments the sweet taste of the apples. It has a clear body that is light red in hue. The initial taste is moderately sweet with a slightly bitter finish of average duration. A very drinkable beer.

Aroma was distinct tart apple cider,with little hints of the pale malt probaly used,tried to but couldn’t pick up any of the off tones detected by others. Taste was a rather smooth blend of boxed childrens juice and grainey malt. Came on more like a wine cooler, the women liked it more then the men

Pours a nice copper color with a small light head. Faint grainy apple aroma. Flavor matches the aroma with a little apple aftertaste.Nothing offensive...but nothing that stands out.

Thin white head of medium sized bubbles. Good carbonation. Dusty apple cider aroma with some dry wheat and vanilla. Some spices as the brew warms. Amber in color. Tart apples, more vanilla and spices in the flavor. Some gritty and grainy notes. Finishes a little bit dry and tart. I like these apple ales.

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.
