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.

Fruit roll up in a bottle. Literally what you can imagine it to be, but to top it off, no alcohol trace. Clean and refreshing, good fruit beer.

Bright red color with a light rose colored fizzy head. Sweet berry and apple flavor. The nose has a distinctive barn yard funk to it that I didn't expect. Little bit light on the mouth feel as well. Overall good brew! Thanks Ryan for the trade!

Bottle poured into chalice glass. Rich, ruby color. Heavy Carbonation leads to a soft head. Bouquet of fruits; cherry, apple and cranberry as described does not disappoint the nose. This is a tart, sweet, medium balanced and bubbly brew. It did not disappoint.

Pours a reddish-brown with a tan head that fades fast.
Aroma is apple, cranberry, cherry and funk.
Taste is apple and cherry with cranberry as well. Tart, sweet with a touch of finishing bitter.
Mouthfeel is medium and bubbly. An epically great beer.
