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.

Quick notes at a little bottle share at Mikro, Hamden CT

A. Cranberry red, no head no retention 3.25
S. Sweet, apple and cran without a lot of cherry . 3.75
T. Apple cranberry. Sweet. Too sweet. 2.25
M. Good body, maybe could use more carb3
O. Too sweet. As Mike said as he shared this with me: if you put it in little cardboard boxes and stuck a straw in it, you could feed it to the little ones. Goood to cut a berliner wiesse though! 2.75

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

$9.99 from my local Pick 'n Save grocery store

A: brilliant rosy-red color, billowing light pink head, clear, head dissipated quickly
S: fruit and malt
T: cloying, cough syrupy sweet, pronounced fruitiness that is appealing but more on the order of a sweet soda, no funk or wildness although bottle states wild fermentation, no noticeable oak
M: rounded but cloying and too heavy from sweetness

Serving type: bottle
