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 murky ruby red, with an ivory foam that dies off as quickly as pop.
Smells like candy fruit, namely cherry.
Initially a cherry sweetness hits, meandering into cranberry tartness in the finish. Pretty dense body with strong carbonation. Sweet overall. Attenuation isn't a priority here. Syrupy for sure. The apple might be adding to the cranberry finish, if we're dealing with crabapples or green apple flavors. Its hard to tell. It tastes like awesome cran-cherry fruit juice, and not a whole lot else. I could see this as the best syrup in a great berlinerweisse. On its own, this is a great dessert after a hefty pot roast or thanksgiving dinner. It's not crazy complex, but you'd be hard pressed to find a better fruit beer.

Cannot get enough of this. Never get tired. The right amount of fruit and tartness.
