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.

Kinda strange yet I kinda liked it. Like half cider and half beer. Apple was predominant and beer flavors take back seat

12oz bottle.
Pours a nice-looking clear amber-orange. A white head forms on pour, a few bubble-layers thick. It quickly dissipates but a constant stream of bubbles continually feeds a persistent wisp of bubbles on top. Aroma is pleasant enough, but mosty one-dimensional of apple cider. Flavor is also reminiscent of apple cider mixed with ale -- this is basically a Snakebite in a bottle, only not quite as good. Medium palate, almost a bit thick, with a slightly sticky feel. An apple beer is tough to pull off well, and Furthermore doesn’t do it here. In fact, only New Glarus has made one that I actually liked rather than tolerated. If someone offered me a bottle of this at a party, I’d drink it; otherwise, I probably won’t be having another one of these again.

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.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Pours a transparent copper orange with a thin, clingy-lacing bone-white head. Aroma of semi-sweet pale malts and some lightly tart earthy fruity apple notes. Body starts semi-sweet with some caramel notes before a crisp, tart green apple presence dries out the finish and leaves some lingering pear flavors. Pretty well-balanced and an interesting take on a cream ale.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 14, 2008
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.

moelikebeer (221) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 28, 2008
Bottle. Clear, dark golden pour with almost no head. Slight aroma of apple with some alcohol and grain. Flavor is much nicer. More apple, spice and some tartness that comes through more as the beer warms.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 17, 2008
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.

Thanks for sharing, Mark. A dark gold body with a white head. The aroma has some woody sweet apples along with flowers. The taste has some light apple core and wood. Flowery in the taste. Decent.

alobar (2781) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2011
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.
