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!

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.

Not as good as I was expecting. A bit too sweet and medicinal tasting. Still a good beer, but there are better and easier to get options.

Bottle thanks to bytemesis. Little foam after the pour, warm brown color brightly tinted red. Aroma is strongly reminiscent of the Wisconsin red but with obvious tones from the apples. The apples and cranberries bring a welcome tartness that keeps this beer from wearing out its welcome after one glass. Equal parts sweet and dry, tingly on the tongue. A very light toasty flavor detected in the finish. Overall, it perhaps doesnít hit the peaks of Wisconsin red but it achieves a much better balance.

This pours an attractive reddish amber color with a lasting off white ring of bubbles for a head. Big fresh fruit nose with lots of apple and cherry notes. Sweet tart candy taste with berries, apple juice, and some orange flavors. Gently fizzy on the tongue. This is a great, juicy, fruity beer.

Sampled at GABF 2013. Pours reddish-orange from the bottle with a frothy off-white head. Tart cranberry nose with cherry making its way through. Phenomenal taste; tart cranberry and cherry smack the tongue with a wonderful, juicy flavor. The finish is great, yet here is where it falters slightly when compared to Belgian Red (this is more of a limitation of the apple and cranberry that are not as juicy as cherries). Not surprisingly, this is a great fruit beer.

Dr_MedievAle (199) - Alabama, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Delicious apple-cranberry nose that follows into the mouth. A medium sweetness that doesnít overpower, and nicely complemented by the bitter and dry cranberry-juice-like finish. Delicious beer that tastes like fresh apple-cran juice.

Sampled at GABF 2013. An incredible aroma and flavor. Very fresh and tart fruitiness. Medium sourness. Smooth and sweet.

Pours a reddish color with pink head. Aromas that remind me of smelling a fruit tray. This beer has some amazing flavors from the fruit combinations added. This is one the best beers Iíve had.

The beer appears ruby to amber with a frothy, off white head. The aroma brings a potent dose of apples, pears, tart cranberries, sweet fruit juices. A typical New Glarus fruit beer. Bold and assertive. Teeming with flavor. Sweet cherries and apples with minimal alcohol. Though a bit sweet for my tastes, there's no denying that this is a terrific beer. Fantastic in small quantities. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Excellent fruit beer. Complex aroma of mixed fruits and a touch of the oak. Flavor is aggressively sweet and sharp. But it never becomes cloying and is held in just enough by the wood. Still, this is a fruity juicy beer. Yet somehow it all works. Abv is undetectable, the right enough of carbonation to keep it from being juice, and a complex layering of fruits. This is what a fruit beer should be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
