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.

By far the best fruit beer I have ever had. You can taste the cherries, apples, and cranberries that blend beautifully. I am not a huge fruit beer person, but this blew my socks off. Sure wish I could get a keg of this.

Pours a dark ruby red. Two finger head.

Smells of candied cranberries. A hint of sour apple. And some ripe cherry. Smells sooo so good.

Tastes like cranberry candy. So good. Apple hits on the aftertaste. No alcohol at all. Very very good beer.

Mouthfeel is great. Nice carbonation. Clean finish.

Would absolutely drink this beer again. Puckers a bit on the finish. Pick it up if you see it.
