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.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with Ughsmash. If ever there was a beer that poured like a soda, this one is it. Pours just like a clear apple juice with a fizzy white head and lots of fat carbonation bubbles quickly rising to the surface. Very spritzy like a glass of soda. The head is gone within a minute and leaves no lace. Aroma of weak malt and apple. The flavor is again weak malt with some apple. Very low bitterness at the finish. On a positive note, this beer is refreshing, but then again, so is a glass of water. Mediocre.

12 oz bottle. Poured a clear medium orange color. Head was very fizzy and reduced to nothingness in less than a minute. Smelled of biscuity malt and apple juice. Dry on the tongue with delicate acidity. Tasted predominantly of apple cider with a biscuity malt backbone. Eh.

Blah. A boring fruit beer. Aroma was very weak. Could pick up a hint of apple if sniffed for a while. Pour was a medium gold with plenty of rising bubbles and a thin white ring for a head. Taste was like seltzer water with a mild sour apple aftertaste. Nothing more. Nice carbonation

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.

Thanks Dave. The beer pours to a bright orange amber body that’s 100% filtered with a white head. The aroma is cheap crappy macro lager with a dash of apple cider. The flavor is actually decent with a dry apple cider but no residual sugars as it finishes really clean and drinks like water. Tart apple cider meets toasty pale malts. Average tart cidery palate. Simplistic but would be refreshing on a really hot day.

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.

Bottle - Pours a clear golden amber with a fluffy white head. Not a lot of apple on the nose--kind of a sugary white grape/apple mix with some lactic sourness that almost borders on rotting. Not as crisp and clean as New Glarus’s Apple Ale, and must sweeter than something like Ephemere. The taste...I gotta agree with a previous reviewer that called this apple cider with some light beer mixed in. It tastes like a blend that didn’t quite integrate. The sweet/tart of the cider hits first, with the maltiness of the cream ale in the middle, and the apple peel and tartness lingering through the finish. An interesting mix, but one that ends up not working very well.

It is light clear amber with almost no head. The aroma is light sweet aplle tart with a bit of creaminess. The body is lighter with apple up front and tartness, with both flavors settling and ultimately finishing it off.

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.
