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

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

I’m a sucker for ciders, so this beer is refreshing change for fall beers. Not a huge aroma, but a slight apple aroma is present. Slightly tart with a refreshing bubbly mouthfeel. Granny smith apples taste combined with a light, creamy ale. Nice change for a cider lover.

Light body. Reminds me of Redds. Sweet caramel apple aroma. Pretty good tasting. Kind of tastes like Spotted Cow with apples. Slight banana flavors as well. Not up there with New Glarus Apple Ale, but would drink again.

Pours a nice deep golden color. Smells like a hiar salon. You know when you walk by a Regis in the mall? Yeah it’s like that. Hmmmmm, well it tastes kinda llike a flat cider mixed with some cheap lager. Not a terrible beer, but they definately make better.

Smells like apple juice. Slightly sour apple taste, granny smith perhaps? Smooth, not overally sweet, quite drinkable for a apple beer. Good stuff.

Nice try and Interesting but apple flavor is second rate and a bit to sweet and bland.

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.

Pours a nice copper color with a small light head. Faint grainy apple aroma. Flavor matches the aroma with a little apple aftertaste.Nothing offensive...but nothing that stands out.
