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!

Beautiful fruit beer. Mahogany and red color with light pink head. The aroma is like nice sparkling fruit juice....apples, cherries, cranberries all accounted for. The taste follows, just sweet enough. Slight sourness. Masterful.

750 ml. Amber body with orange highlights. Fizzy, off-white head. Big aroma of cherries, raspberries, overripe prunes. Hint of basement. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter and lightly to moderately acidic. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Tart finish. Lots of fruit flavors with a hint of toasted grain, funk and overripe fruit. A bit medicinal.

Bottled the time it was bottled. Pours a browned pink with a fleeting dusty rose cap. Smells of apples, cherries, oak and some lactic acid. Taste is cranberry well balanced with apples and cherries. The beer leans toward the tart side of things and helps the flavor profiles balance out like a well blended wine. There is a medium on lightly cloying body with moderate carb and a semi dry finish that makes me want the beer ice cold and in gulping portions on a early summer morning. Really a refreshing beer I believe to be an absolutely fantastic deviation from the normal New Glarus beers.

Pour is ruby red with a bubbly off-white head. Aroma is of sour cherries, and apple juice. Head faded rather quickly after picking out the aroma. Flavor is green apples at the front but transitions into a sour cherry finish. Dry and tart, good.

750ml bottle: This one pours a ruby hued amber color. There was a fizzy off-white head that didn’t linger long or leave much lacing. The nose is good. It almost smells like fruit juice, but not as sweet. Cherry, apple and cranberries are the most notable. The taste is also very good. There is a tartness and sweetness at the same time. Cherries, cranberry and apple. Somewhat lighter body. This is interesting and wonderful. It is only 5.1%, but you don’t even realize there is alcohol in this.

Extremely sour fruity aroma, first apple then lambic fruity sourness. Excellent carbonation even in the small stupid gabf glass. Perfect blende of the fruits and the sourness, I felt like I was in the cranberry bogs. I would have stayed at the booth all night but the line would have rioted.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2015 Thanks Jeff. An absolute huge raspberry aroma to go with the bright red color. Candy fruit all over the place. Huge thick head. A big candy raspberry flavor. Tart in the end. Very sweet. A solid fruit beer.
