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.

This much anticipated offering from New Glarus pours ruddy red with some short froth that is reddish tan and falls quickly to a light skim coat.

There's a strong, sour and tart aroma dominated by cherry but the apple and cranberry blend together seamlessly to create an awesome smelling fruit beer. Some light honeyed malt aroma sneaks through the fruit.

The flavor is bursting with fruit also dominated by the cherry. The sweet apple plays nicely against the tart cranberry. The finish is sour apple with some tartness and sweetness to balance it out. The malt is in the background and no noticeable taste from the hops or yeast. The focus is entirely on berries and fruit as it should be.

The mouthfeel has a light carbonation that is perfect and this is tart and refreshing. Full flavored and medium body. More easily quaffed than their Cherry beer.

This is my new favorite fruit beer from NG. Cheers!

Received in a trade and poured into a Tree House tulip.

A- Pours a nice red color with shades of pink two finger head that quickly fades to almost nothing.

S- The aroma of apples, cherries and cranberries is highly intoxicating and borderline criminal.

T- Taste is just like the nose with a beautiful blend of all three fruits stimulating your nostrils.

M- Mouthful is lightly effervescent and delectable.

O- Overal I really enjoy this beer and cant wait to have it again.
