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.

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.

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.

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.

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 didn’t 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. I’d weakly recommend it.

Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Light lacing. Aromas of Granny Smiths, and slight hops. Taste like cider/ Granny Smiths. A little tart and dry on the tounge.

Smells like alcohol, apples, and ozone, in that order. Tastes like apples, ozone, and alcohol, in that order. Also some light malts giving it toast and porridge notes and balance out the apple sweetness. Body is maybe too thin, and carbonation too much.

Pours a cloudy copper brown with white head. Aroma is tart citrus/green apple. Flavor is similar to a chardonnay. Fruity, tart apple, citrus. Body is light with medium carbonation.

Thanks to Ricky Bobby’s owner for the taste. Somehow, I remember your dog’s name, but not yours. Pours a light grain color. Aroma is strong grain and sweet apple concentrate. Flavor is more of the same. Strong grain and euro hops with a concentrated apple juice flavor added. Fun beer to try. Thanks!

Bottle. Poured into a tulip glass a clear golden color with a white collared head. It honestly looks like apple juice. Sweet apple cider aroma in the nose with little else, maybe some slight spice. Sweet apple flavor upfront wtih some tartness, some cherry flavors as well. This beer is pretty sweet but it’s decent for a fruit beer. Having had New Glarus Unplugged Apple Ale today, I would say this is an ok substitute but not as good as teh NG. Medium/light mouthfeel.

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.
