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.

Not only did Raul do it, Raul is feeling it! Hanging in the high atmosphere in Mammoth Lakes, Raul is into this thang like a Kardashian on a NBA player. Luscious, delicious and delicate.

This bad sucker is something that Raul is doing and he won't have a problem doing it well again.

750 mL. Split

A: Prune colored with a ring of off white head.

N: Lots of cherry, raspberry, and apple. Very sugary sweet. Some grape juice. Smells like a cocktail, but it’s more complex than Raspberry Tart.

T: Sweet, but not overpoweringly so. There’s a touch of sourness about it.

M: Syrupy, sticky, but still light.

O: Think this is my favorite of their fruit beers. More complex and less sweet than raspberry tart.
