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: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Look - cloudy dark auburn color with a great tan head. Beautiful
Smell - cherries, fermented apples, slight cranberries , slight sour but more tart and has some oak smell to it.
Taste - a lot of the same flavors as what you smell... Sweet cherries but with fermented apple cider and maybe a hint of cranberries. Very slight sour and a mildly tart and has that taste that it's been in an oak barrel.
Feel - great medium carbonation that gives it that slightly flat champagne feel. Medium full body, pretty thick.
Overall - incredible looking smelling tasting and feeling sour beer! It was great to read the description of the beer after reviewing each category and see that I was right on with what was in it besides for the fact that I thought that it had some raspberry instead of cranberry.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.
