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.

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.

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.

Light color, no head. Crisp and clean tasting. Goes down smooth. Very sweet, almost like candy, somewhere between beer and hard cider. I liked it overall.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2012 Each sip is fizz, then apple, then a nice toasty warmth. Base seems pretty standard cream ale. Decent seasonal, essentially apple cider with a bready touch.

12 oz bottle from Rileys in Madison, WI (December 2006) served just a few minutes out of the fridge in a Unibroue glass. Darkish, very clear cider-amber color with a smallish head receding to a lasting thin coating....faint aroma of pale malt and sweet apples, perhaps some berries as well.....flavor is lightly cidery/tart up front, edging into more typical cream ale smooth, lightly malty-sweet territory in the middle, with a touch of tartness returning at the finish....no hop presence (not that one would expect any), light mineralic touches to finish, slightly high carbonation....vaguely interesting and certainly not bad effort from a brewery I’d never heard of until I saw the bottles last week. NOTE: best to drink this puppy really cold; it got horribly syrupy when it got close to cellar temperature.

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 wasn’t so bad. Could use some more spice overall for my own liking. Maybe worth a purchase but not a second.

On tap, Muddy Pig. Pours a reddish-golden color, very minimal carbonation, no head to speak of. Flavor is light dry apple, somewhat ciderish, more akin to a chardonnay. Dry mild lingering tart apple finish. Light bodied, fizzy on the palate. Overall relatively decent, something different than the norm. I could see someone who doesn’t like beer enjoying this.

Halfway between a cider and a beer, this doesn’t do either much justice. There is a slight spritz with the iny bubbles, but not much else worth noting.

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.
