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.

Poured from a 750 ml wax capped bottle into 16 oz tulip glass

A: Pours a cranberry red with a decent white head. A small amount of lacing lingers.

S: Really pleasant aroma. Getting a lot of fantastic apple and cherry smells. New Glarus produces such wonderful smelling beers. (oh, and they taste great too).

T: Simply fantastic. I have to keep reminding myself this is a beer because all of the usual flavors associated with so many different styles of beer are missing. Just as with the nose, lots of apple and cherry working here. It tastes even better as the beer warms with a more tart dynamic working. As with most beers, make sure you don't drink it too cold.

M: A nice balance of sweetness and tart. A perfect carbonation level.

O: I really love this beer. Such a wonderful, unique flavor for a beer, and it gets even better and more juicy as it warms. My only complaint is the same one that people in 49 states have, that its only available in Wisconsin.
