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.

Not sure I quite understand the glowing reivews of this beer. The beer was much more sweet than I was expecting (which was OK by me, as I'm not a huge sour fan), and it tasted very much like an unfiltered apple cider, but with a "beerish" aspect to it. Maybe there was a hint of cherries and cranberries as well, but the apple flavor really dominated.

Certainly this is not a bad beer, but it struck me as a bit simple and one dimensional, and was not a beer I could see myself wanting to buy again.
