COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Happy Accident Fruit Ale 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 flavors discovered by accident in a sour ale! Cheers to the unexpected. Vielen Dank!

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2013 Bottle from a friend. Pours a deep ruby red with off white two finger head. Huge bouquet of cranberry and cherry, sweet and tart smelling. Flavor is more cherry heavy with hints of the cranberry coming through. Very sweet, slight tart. More medicinal than I had hoped but not overwhelming. Lingering tart cranberry that grows on me while I go. Light to medium mouthfeel with lots of carbonation. Cool beer, but not as good as Raspberry Tart.

750 ml bottle received by my secret santa. Thank you joeneugs! Pours hazy ruby red with a small bubbly pinkish beige head that slowly dissipates while leaving a small trace on the glass. Smell is very fruity with crushed cherries, juicy green apples, cranberry juice, dark bread, moist wood, red wine, hay, mixed fruit hard candy, mashed frozen red berries, lemon zest and hints of cereal. Taste is sweet and very fruity with dark cherries, sour cherries, cranberry juice, lemon juice, apple juice, bread, wood, pomegranate, raspberries, hay, lemon zest and hints of unripe strawberries. Mouthfeel is fruity tart, tiny sticky sweet, slightly astringent and light to medium bodied. Finish is fruity with bread, sour cherries, cranberries, green apples, biscuits, wood, hay and lemon zest. Quite nice an not as sweet as other New Glarus fruit beer offerings I’ve tried.

750mL Bottle, purchased at Keyport Liquors - Superior, WI> Cough syrup cherry aroma, cooked and candied. Flavors roam around sweet tart territory, with more medicinal cherry flavors, and some strange bitter astringency from the cranberries. Sweet, sweet, sweet. This is rough, lightly alcoholic candy. It’s so sweet that the rim of my glass is getting sticky after a dozen sips.

1 of 2 bottles purchased at random WI gas station during Dells spring break trip. Holy crap was this good. Great fruit flavor with just enough tart sourness to make it great. The sourness and barrel treatment did not overpower the fruit. Awesome.
