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.

Shared at Beachwood in Seal Beach from a 750ml bottle poured into tulip. Red body with an off-white fizzy head that drops quickly to a few filmy islands. Aroma is sweet pixy stix, cherry, apple, and cranberry fruity notes with an eventual tartness. Taste is sweet early with cranberry and cherry notes followed by some pie spice and apple skin before finishing tart over the residual sweetness. Light body, thin texture, fizzy carbonation, and a tart sweet finish.
