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.

25 ounce bottle, no freshness date.

The bottle pours with a white, one finger head that slowly dissipates. Color is a deep ruby red.

Aroma starts off with a massive hit of cranberry and (to a slightly lesser extent) apple. I get a slight hint of oak and tartness as well.

Taste starts off with a mouth-coating, juicy cranberry and apple mix. Sweetness and tartness show up in the middle in a perfect balance, briefly cleansing the palate. Slight sweetness from the fruit lingers at the end.

Mouthfeel gives that balance of slightly puckering tartness and sweetness, with the sweetness eventually winning out. Carbonation is medium, complementing the beer well.

Overall, this beer is a world class fruit beer. It gives you that juicy, tart fruit without overdoing the overly-sweet aspects that most fruit beers fall victim to. New Glarus has wowed me again and I actually prefer this to the Raspberry Tart. Cheers!
