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.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A: A deep golden red that pours with a short 1.5 finger deep golden brown head.

S: Crazy smell. Love it. Strong sour apple that is bolstered by the cherry's sourness as well. It's got tremendous depth.

T: Very strong apple with a little sour bite which is a nice balance of the cherry and cranberry. That tartness lingers for a bit with the acidity of the beer. Fantastic balance though.

M: Crisp, carbonated, but clean and light.

O: A fantastic beer. Hard to give perfects, but New Glarus fruit beers have proven to deserve it time and time again.
