COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Happy Accident Fruit Ale Severe Drought, we shared the farmerís horror as Wisconsinís 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 Wisconsinís 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 flavors discovered by accident in a sour ale! Cheers to the unexpected. Vielen Dank!

Pours a hazy yet vibrant amber with plum colored hues (along with some golden hues) that round the edges. A nice fluffy head that lingers and leaves a nice cap on top. Aromas just come pouring out. Tart apples, cranberry, cherry, light wheat bread, slight floral notes and final waft of a candy dish. Taste is unparalleled in the style....even among the other New Glarus fruit beers. This one stands out. Offering waves of complexity. Loads of tart fruits explode across my palate. A slightly fizzy mouthfeel gives me these candy soda sensations. Almost tasting like chewy sweetarts! Apple juice, cranberries, smashed cherries. Wow. Everytime I drink this, I love it more! I could go on.... The balance of the malts/yeast is so harmonious, you take it for granted. The common thread among these New Glarus beers, the yeast character is so unique and signature. Bubblegum sweetness with a light cereal grain balance to the ever so slight oak and vanilla. I feel like my vocabulary is lacking the verb-age to give this beer justice. I donít know if any beer in the style can compete with the depth and balance of this one.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5332) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2014
From the March 2014 Pittsburgh Ratebeer gathering. +++ Sampled from a 750 ml green bottle this beer poured a plum-brown color with a large foamy tan-plum head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet artificial sugar and berry gummi bears. The flavor was sweet artificial sugar, mixed berries and a gummi bear note. Long sweet mixed berry finish. Medium body. Nice.

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.

Weezel (231) - Florida, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Huge fruit aromas of apple and tart. The cherries and cranberries pop at first and the smooth apple follows. Picking up a hint of raspberry and smooth carbonation. Unbelievable.

Bottle. Shared by Thom during the Nova 3-point drought of '14. Pours apple juice brown with a creamy white head. Aroma of cherry pie, apple pie, Granny Smith apple slices, cranberry, vanilla, and oak. Taste is Red Delicious apple, cherry pie filling, pie crust, fresh-baked bread, and more fresh cherry. Soft, supple, crisp and dry. Fucking outrageous. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amazing. Simply amazing. I always loved their other fruit beers, but Iím not sure they hold a candle to this, which reveals the three fruits in lovely layers, and has enough sour to be interesting. The winner of the night. Bottle.

Difficult to rate since I donít have anything to comp[are it to. Smells sweet. Cherry and cranberries. Slightly tart, but well balanced. Perfect to break into the Spring.

Good to have friends in Junction City Wis...shared a bottle or two...guys and gals this is unreal fruit soursness balance at its best...why travel across the pond when you van get this unreral..sparkling fruit englomerance on your palate...cranberries are tart but this beeer uses them to get the backbone of the beer come through, a slight acidicy, slight tart but the strange malt comes through in the finish...not too dry but dry enough to get you wanting more more more.

Red brown pout with minimal head. Aroma of cherry, cranberries, apple, and sweet malt. Taste is like cranapple juice with a overly sweet malt backbone. Quality, but too sweet for me.
