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.

12oz. Bottle: Sweet aroma of light apples and grains. Poured amber/apple juice in color with a small, off-white head that diminished quickly but lasted around the edges only. Clear. Slightly sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of apples, apple juice, and slight bready malt. Light to medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Apple juice and grain finish is slightly dry.

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.

I guess I hadn’t appreciated, when I read the front label, that it was actually brewed with apple cider. But now that I see that, it helps to explain a bit. Definitely tart, though not as deliciously acidic as a good cider; murky body is echoed in the somewhat messy flavors, with a thicker than normal palate from the cream ale influence. But I have to echo the comments made by others that I would just prefer a good cider. And, for that matter, I would prefer a cream ale, too. Bottle.

12 oz bottle purchased at Blue Max in Burnsville, Minnesota. Pour is clear golden orange with a few visible carbonation bubbles and a frothy one inch white head that falls fast. Aroma of grainy malt, corn and brightly sweet apple juice. Taste is exactly the nose; grainy malt, corn huskiness and sweet apple juice. Palate ios thin to medium, coats the mouth a bit, lingering corny apple taste. This tastes exactly like a cream ale with apple juice - just as the label says so extra point for that. However, I don’t think I am wild about this marriage.

12oz bottle 5/3/14 (Woodmans- Waukesha)-Pours a clear goldfish amber with a small white covering. Aroma of caramel apple. Taste of tart, apple, bitterness, and sweetness. This light bodied brew is a bit different but still tasty.

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.

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.

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.

12 oz bottle

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.

Nice idea if it didn't quite work. Appearance has a tiny bit of head, no lace, copper Amber clear color. aroma is marshmallows malt and cider. Flavor is an unpleasant blend of malty beer & cider. Somehow of the body doesn't work because of that unpleasant blend. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
