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.

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.

This beer is really sweet and you need a sweet tooth for it. The first sip is really good and amazing. But a whole bottle for one person is a bit much. Almost was like a strong kool aid.

22 oz bottle. Pours clear ruby with creamy off-white/pink head. Aroma is apples, mixed berries, light vanilla, faint oak, and light malts. Flavor is fruit juice with subtle malt notes and faint barrel character. Medium body and carbonation.
