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 a lovely, sparkling clear red color with a small but moderately durable red-tan head that left the glass nicely coated when tipped.

Has a very fruity aroma; tart. Appealing yet it didn't prepare me for the magnificent taste. The flavor is loaded with mixed fruit, with both cranberries and cherries evident. Perfect TART/sweet balance. Serendipity indeed.

The medium-light body is quietly lively yet creamy smooth.

O: as good as any fruit beer I've ever had, including the finest Belgian lambics.
