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.

Thanks to Tricerahops for this one.

Aroma of apples predominantly but some cherries present. Initial flavor is a healthy mix of apples and cherries. Cranberries are in the finish and resemble the dried fruit variety, texture and all. Surprisingly not tart but more on the sweet side. Very good stuff.

By far the best fruit beer I have ever had. You can taste the cherries, apples, and cranberries that blend beautifully. I am not a huge fruit beer person, but this blew my socks off. Sure wish I could get a keg of this.
