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.

Received as a generous extra for a non-BA trader, thanks bro. split with BostonRyan and poured into oversized snifter

A: Deep red and slightly opaque with minimal head present.

S: smells of cherries and apples, quite like a cider. refreshing

T: along the nose, hits heavily on apples, grapes, and cherries, but minimal sourness is present. this tastes like a cross between a fruit lambic and a cider.

M: smooth and medium body with good carbonation, a little too sticky.

O: The only fruit beer I've ever enjoyed. Not truly a cider, but not a lambic, simply a nice and unique offering from a Midwest favorite.

Serving type: bottle
