Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Lemke10 on 10-15-2012

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.

750ml bottle poured into a tulip
A: Held up to light it reveals a brownish-red color. A 1+ finger head lingers forever
S: Apple is primary, then cherry then cranberry. Smells more fruit juice than beer, but the aromas are pure
T: Like the nose, mostly fruit. The apple is still primary but the cranberry comes through second, least cherry. A hint of wheat to round it out
M: Light-bodied, sweet but not overly so, super smooth
O: I was hoping for a bit of funk/sour with the wild fermentation mentioned but it's still a darn tasty beer with pure fruit flavors

One of my favorite fruit beers - can't have too much but a nice change of pace with robust fruit flavors.
