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.

Copper red with good clarity and good general appearance. Aroma is strong on apples and cherries... can't really comment on other aspects. Tastes very tart but the apples sure are noticeable. Cranberries are tart and there's ample dose of cherry at the end. Mouthfeel is medium with full carbonation and the finish is clean but with a lasting tartness. If this is oak aged, then the oak is present only in the tannins, but I am not sure. Overall it's a very good fruit beer but the label hints that it should be an American Wild Ale.

Poured into snifter. Came with a quarter inch head which dissipated quickly. Little lacings around the glass. Beer had a strong fruity aroma, I smelled both cranberries and apples. Very tart. It appeared dark red, kind of like cranberry juice with the exception that it had moderate froth and lacings.

The taste was very tart - like cranberry cocktail juice and yet very sweet. I noted highlights of different fruits as I tasted it - for certain there were cranberries and apples. While it was fruity, it had a nice malty background which is a reminder to me that it's a beer, not juice nor fruity wine. It's a 1 pint and 9 fluid oz. bottle, yet very drinkable and I did not share this (there wasn't anyone to share with anyway). A relaxing beer to enjoy both during the day (it's only 4% ABV) and in the evening hours. Enjoy!
