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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

25oz bottle, chalice

crisp reddish orange with a nice head. Smell is huge on cheerwine / jolly ranchers. Taste is the same. This is basically like drinking raspberry soda / liquid jolly ranchers. Drinks like soda so the drinkability may be the highest of any beer ive had. Lighter side of medium bodied with mild carbonation.

Overall cheerwine with alcohol. Superb.

A: gorgeous mahograny/shiny burnt orange
2 finger tan/white head, divine lacing

S: fresh cherries, apple cider, and mild cranberries

T: cherries, apple cider middle, craberry sour pucker finish

M: med body, big sour/sticky mouth

O: One of my least favorite styles, but New Glarus
is converting me with this and Strawberry/Rhubarb.
Incredible nose and taste, perfect beer to introduce
skeptics and fun for summer Great Lakes parties.

OUTSTANDING; MUST TRY!

A-Clear ruby one finger light head with nice lacing.

S-Cherries, apples and a tad bit of cranberries.

T-Amazing balance. Cherries and apples are centerstage with an ever so slight cranberry. Very sweet beer.

M-Light to medium in body, nice level of carbonation.

O-The best fruit beer I've ever had.
