Golden ale brewed with fresh MA apple cider, cinnamon, nutmeg, coriander, and allspice; aged in rum and brandy barrels

A golden ale, warmed with holiday spices, caught the fall of autumn’s last apples. We poured it into oak barrels of rum and brandy, and aged it as the leaves turned. Frosty weather now upon us, Fallen Apple kindles the tongue with flavors of caramel, baked apple, and spicy oak.

Started off semi enjoyable but then changed into a flavor i cant quite put my finger on. The apple and cinnamon are definitely prevalent but its just not what i like in an apple ale.

Didnt care for this much. I expected much more of everything considering the ingredients. Got a little apple but beyond that, didnt taste much else. Wanted some cinnamon and character from the rum barrels.

750ml capped bottle into a Founders snifter.

Pours a rich, fluffy, 2 finger light cream colored head with great retention. Lacing is stringy and spotty with excellent stick. Beer is a clear, bright bronze. Really a good looking beer.

Nose is sugar cookie, cinnamon spice, apple pie with a slight touch of yeasty sweetness. Delicious! Almost like a pumpkin beer. Very aromatic.

Opens sweet and cinnamon-y. Notes of cinnamon spice, apple pie, sugar cookie, yeast and fresh baked goods. Apple skin and pulp really come through nicely. Lightly boozy at the finish with a touch of wood in the aftertaste along with some yeast and more cinnamon. Solid.

Medium bodied with low to moderate carbonation. Smooth and warm in the mouth and goes down spicy and semi-dry. Pretty clean finish with a lightly lingering aftertaste. Decent.

This is a very well done beer. Unfortunately, even though I think the intended flavors come through perfectly, the flavors themselves are not all that enticing or impressive. Worth trying because its pretty unique but not one I'd have again.
