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 a soapy, brown-white head. Tart, fruit aroma that smells of yeasty apple peels. Clear, burnt sienna color. Starts with a wonderful, refreshing tartness. Berries, the clear sweetness of apples, and the lingering tartness of cranberries. There is a flash of maltiness before the finish; lingering cranberry tart with malt.

This is beyond amazing. The best fruit bier from New Glarus (and that's saying a LOT). Just sublime. Each and every time I have this, it's a treat. I've been in love with this one since it was released, and I have no idea why I've never reviewed it before. It's just perfect.

Amazing Fruit Beer by Mr. Carey once again. Going home to Wisconsin means one thing, fitting as many of these into my (our) suitcases as possible, and then try to fit even more for all the request back in Arizona!

The sweetness isn't overpowering, is has a great taste and feel on all parts of the tongue. Bravo!
