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.

Tastes like plum and grape juice. Mellow vinegar and acidity. Interesting beer but a little too sweet. The bottle is a few years old I don't know the date.

Objectively extremely well done, subjectively the best beer ever concocted. I cannot find another beer or alcoholic beverage for that matter, that gives me the feeling of pure bliss that this one does. The fruit-forward taste is a balanced mix of tart and sweet, with a light woody/malty finish that is simply indescribable. The smell is equally delightful. As my good friend says, this is quite simply the nectar of the gods if there ever was such a thing.

I'm sorry, I have yet to see a brewery make fruit beers of the quality of NG. This is no exception. Very robust fruit flavor as it pours a cabernet red in the glass. Bubble carbonation in the finish. Well worth my drive over from Duluth to score a 4pk for the trip home.

Dark copper colored and hazy. There's a fingernail of beige on the top. The aroma is a truly unique but very enticing blend of apples, cranberries, and cherries along with cinnamon. I'm tasting a decadent blend of cinnamon, apples, cranberries, and cherries. The mouth is dry and highly carbonated.

Bottle share courtesy of Tracy.. Not enough superlatives for this. Gorgeous. Ruby body with small ring of head. Big fruity, jelly jar aroma. Taste is sweet and smooth, nice feel, sweetness lingers. Just damn near perfect.
