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 golden clear with off white head. Floral hop and apple aroma with a bit of fresh toast. Taste to match with more apple.

Bottle. Pours a straw yellow with a fizzy white head. Weak apple aroma with a hint of grains. Flavor was sweet apples, grainy malts and a touch of tartness.

Bottle pours gold with a white head. Aroma is sweet and tart with notes of apple cider, earth, and the slightest hint of vanilla. Flavor shows the same with a light toffee/bread malt underneath. Overall body is light and soft with a slightly tart finish.

Capa (1993) - Manama, BAHRAIN - JAN 7, 2013
Slight hazy copper. Sweet, caramel, apple in the aroma. Watery body. Flavor is light beer, heavier cider. Sweet, apple, light caramel in the flavor with a bit of malt. I’ve homebrewed a cider/beer hybrid before and was excited for this. Did not meet my expectations.

Or a fruit beer. They missed the mark on this one. It smells like a hair salon. It is a nice looking beer, resembling brandy in my snifter. Little carbonation. Flavor is light apple, hint of spice, and grain. These guys are usually solid but this beer needs some work.

12oz, no date. Clear orange with a one finger off-white head. Light apple juice and light grain make up the aroma, along with some light biscuity malts. Much more apple cider in the flavor, though, now that I think about it, there is almost a Froot Loops quality to both the flavor and aroma. Light body with a moderate smooth carbonation. I wanted to like this, but nothing came together
