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.

Big thanks to crushedvol and KWMiles for a bottle of this brew...

A: Pours a deep murky red with about a half finger of off-white colored head. The foam settles quickly, and there is a small amount of lacing left on the glass as it drinks.

S: The nose is big apple, with a good helping of cherries. It says this beer is made with cranberries, but I can't specifically pull this scent out from the nose. There is also that familiar New Glarus twang to it.

T: The beer starts out sweet with a generous helping of apples, a good amount of tart cranberry, and some solid cherry notes. Although I couldn't pull out the cranberries in the nose, they are pretty evident in the taste. The New Glarus house yeast is there, and I get a touch of vanilla on the back end.

M: Medium bodied beer. It's sweet and coating, a bit sticky, and the flavors linger on the palate for a while after the beer has moved off the palate.

O: Excellent fruit beer. I think this is the best one that New Glarus has made. It's like a mix of the apple ale, the cranbic, and the Belgian Red. All three flavors work together quite nicely. Apple is the dominate flavor, but they all play off one another. Would love to drink more of this on the regular.
