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.

I found this one on tap at Uber Tap Room in Milwaukee Wisconsin. They have it year round. For some reason Wisconsin Brewers seem to be afraid of brewing sour ales. Serendipidy is a rare exception.

Appearance: Amber plum color with a quickly receding white head. The foam maintains a minimal white ring around the sides of the glass throughout the entire 12 oz pour.

Smell: sweet and tangy smell. Cranberry, cherry, and apple notes dominate with a floral scent in the background

Taste. Very sweet and tart. Bold acidity and spiciness on the tongue. Cranberry, cherry, and apple flavors are present. The sourness compliments the syrupy mouthfeel
