Appearance: About two bubbly fingers of very light red head on the pour. Outstanding carbonation throughout. Dark apple red color with some slight tints of orange. Creamy lacing crept down the glass as a enjoyed every drop.
Smell: Apples, apples, apples. Some balanced tartness from the cranberries really adds some kick to the aroma. Some light sweetness from the cherries but they are not a major player.
Taste: Smooth apples hit right on the front. A seamless transition to the cranberries blast through in the body and do not let your palette rest. The sweetness is very much kept in check to keep it from having an over the top artificial taste. The finish is some dried fruit which is so pleasant on the palette.
Mouthfeel: Light and refreshing fruit. Light to medium boded with a moderate lasting sweetness.
Overall: Perfect fruit beer. Wow New Glarus again knocks this completely out of the park. Perfect for a spring afternoon.

Leave it to Dan Carey at New Glarus to take a bad cherry harvest, an okay apple harvest, and a great cranberry harvest, mix all those together and get a wonderful beer accident that only he can produce! Behold, Serendipity! A sour fruit beer that shows the skill of the brewmaster and also makes the beer drinker yearn for more from this great brewery (www.newglarusbrewing.com). While Spotted Cow seems to be the most recognizable of the brews that New Glarus produces, and it definitely has its place, they push out much more great beer than that. If you’ve never had their Double IPA, Raspberry Tart, Belgian Red, Black Top, Moon Man, Enigma and many more, it’s time to run up to Platteville or even head to Madison or New Glarus itself to check out more of their products.
Serendipity is considered a fruit/sour beer and you can definitely get the tartness from this brew. The flavors of all the fruits really do a number on your taste buds, and the beer pairs perfectly with brownies, chocolate cake, or even makes a great dessert on its own.
