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!

Bottle thanks to Randall. Clear reddish copper pour with a white head. Big cherry aromas. Wow, effervescent with tingly cherry, sour apple, and bitter cranberry highlights. Tasty but almost overbearingly so. Intense fruit with caramel malt lowlights. Definitely unique..

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 31, 2013
A steady pour into my New Belgium globe glass produces a three-finger thick, pink tinged, tan colored head. The beer is a dark, concentrated plum-amber color that shows a brilliantly clear, cranberry-juice red hue when held up to the light. The aroma is fruity and sweet; candied cranberries, fruity sweet cherries, and flora apple notes also have a touch of fruit tartness to it. The aroma reminds me quite a bit of a some sort of cough syrup, or perhaps of some sort of syrup I should be using in a desert. I canít even pretend to smell anything of the base beer here.

Sweet with lots of prickly carbonation and predominantly fruity. The finish tastes characteristically of apples, while up front the cherry notes intermingle with a light cranberry character; the cherries also linger into the finish with a cherry skin fruitiness that lingers a bit on the palate. There is a touch of tartness here that helps to slightly temper the sweetness. At times the mix of fruit reminds me of childrenís aspirin in the finish. The body is certainly a bit thick, it has a fullness to it that lingers a bit on the palate; definitely something to be sipped slowly. Once again the base beer is pretty much non-existent, perhaps a hint of maltiness, but I could very well be imagining it.

Nice as a desert, and in fairly small quantities, or if you have a serious sweet tooth. I honestly donít understand why this is ranked so highly compared to the fake, sweet, fruit Lambics out there; clean, candy sweet, and fruity, they are quite similar and can work in certain situations, though for my particular palate I wouldnít choose to drink these very often.

Amazing fruit beer that manages to blend cranberries, apples, and cherries into one amazing flavor. its simply wonderful. itís also a great conversation starter at bars that serve it from the bottle. grab a couple glasses and share. Itís a beer that even folks who donít claim to like beer can enjoy.

Musty notes, honey and floral notes swirl around the appeals albeit a tad overly sweet aromas. M - lively carb and a bright though sticky feel. Nice full palate, heavy on the sweet. Lingering fruitiness. T - fruit forward for sure. Apple/white grape/peach/cran/berry juice. Bam. Must, honey, brown sugar and light vegetal notes. O - how does new glaurus make such good fruit beers. Good stuff. 3.9

MotherBrother (766) - Aalborg, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2013
Pour is dark hazy pinkish... With a frothy and light pink head. Aroma is delicious and subtle of green apples, wild berries and some "other fruits" The taste is really fruity-sweet, with a little bit of tartness to it.. Average bodied, with a semi-flat carbonation. I really do like the subtleness of this..
