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.

The beer pours in a clear ruby red color.

The aroma hits exactly as expected. It punches with sweet and tart apple and then a punch of juicy cranberry, with a bit of funk.

The flavor has a tart apple in the front and then a sweet cranberry and slight cherry flavor on the end. It hits all notes. It drinks very well with the balance of tartness and sweetness.

There's a champagne like carbonation that rolls around.

It's a well done beer, but it is a bit too reminiscent of Martinelli's Apple Cider.
