Notes/Commercial Description:
Severe Drought, we shared the farmer’s horror as Wisconsin’s cherry crop failed! Dan bought what cherries he could. The Apple crop fared better. Then joy! A grand Wisconsin cranberry harvest. What will Dan brew with Apples, Cranberries and Cherries? Oh my! You hold the happy accident of Wisconsin’s favorite fruit aged in oak with an almost magical wild fermentation. Serendipity is a wondrous celebration that sparkles your senses and dances across your palate. A kaleidoscope of flavor discovered by accident in a sour ale!

Cheers to the unexpected.

Pours almost rusty red-orange with a gentle purple hue and light red bubbly foam that quickly dissipates. Pours a little murky.

This smells glorious, perfectly bright notes of apple, cranberries, and cherries.

After immediate anticipation for the sip after the aroma, I was not let down. Apple, cranberries, and cherries are spectacularly blended to perfection with tons of sweet and tart.

Light bodied, medium carbonation, acidic, and tart.

Overall, just an outstanding brew from NG, they cannot be touched when it comes to fruit sours.

Nicely Balanced, not too sweet. Apple cider and Tart Cranberries counter the sweetness of the beer, very carbonated. definitely one of the more well balanced fruit beers i've had.
