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.

Unbelievable complexity for a low abv. Drinks like a juice. Give this to anybody who claims that they don't like beer and see their reaction. Pairs very well with acidic foods.

Pours dark red, like a cherry juice. Smells like fresh fruits, cherries, raspberries. Second whiff suggests some combination of spices. Cinnamon and maybe nutmeg. Sweet and tart, extremely balanced.

I don't like fruity beers but this one is extremely unique.
