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.

Glass Used: Nonic

Appearance: This poured a very murky reddish brown color. A thick bone white head formed and dissipated in a quick manner.

Smell: A swirl of scents are intertwined here. You get the green apple and cranberry first then cherry on the back end. That's if you're really trying to pick those fruits a part. On a second sniff, I got candied apple all up in my nose.

Taste: The cranberry-apple flavors pop first, then a quick transition to a cherry finish. As this baby warms, it gets more tart.

Mouthfeel: Medium-high carbonation. A bit prickly at each sip. A medium thickness on the tongue.

Overall: The best fruit beer I've had hands down. I love the sweet-tart balance along with how each fruit profile plays together so well on the palate. If I'm ever in New Glarus' neighborhood, I'm making time to visit and trying their other fruit offerings.
