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!

Creamy foam head. An amber red color. Cherry aroma. Sweet initial cherry taste with finishing notes of apples and cranberries that leaves a wonderful sweet and sour finish.

A perfect reminder of how big the world of beer can be. This is everything that isnít hot in beer right now -- essentially no hop presence, low alcohol, sweet and fruity. And yet itís well made and tastes complex and intriguing, not at all saccharine or artificial. Served for dessert at Thanksgiving, and everyone from the beer geek nephews to the Bud Light aunts thought it was spectacular.

Wow. This is a beer? Fruit Apple candy without the stick. Very mild beer flavor on the end. Nice head that fades quick. Ruby red clear. Aroma is apple and red fruits. The ultimate non beer drinker beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml to glass. Appearance: dark mahogany red with a frothy white head. Aroma: kinda "medicine(y)" cherry aroma. Hints of cranberry, cherry and sweet malt. Taste: huge candy cherry forward, eases into a nice cran-apple finish. Palate: good to mild carbonation. Sweet. My first New Glarus offering. Didnít disappoint. Well done.

Poured from bottle thanks Willrunforbeer for my 45th birthday. Nice deep ruby red pour with a two finger head. Aromas of fruit cherry and cranberry and a hint of sour. Taste is all you would expect fruity smooth crisp juicy very well crafted.

750ml bottle shared with Chalumeaux. Happy Birthday TJ! No bottle date, but IIRC this is a 2013 bottle from trade with Bacterial. Thanks! Pours dark reddish purple with a tinge of brown and a light beige head. Aroma is cranberry, honey, dried cherry. Smells delicious! Great flavor too. cranberry, apple, hints of cherry. Just the right amount of sweetness. Goes down way too easy. Fruit beer doesnít get much better than this.

Cloudy red pour with a single finger, white head. Aroma of tart strawberry. Taste is full of apple and hints of berries. Very tasty, much like fruit juice. Lots of cherry as it warms. No lace.

Bomber poured into a tulip glass at approximately 40 degrees F. Appearance: Pours a deep, rich mahogany red-brown, and forms a dense, fluffy multi-finger head of off-white foam that lasts and lasts. Lacing is off the hook. Smell: Fruit greets the nose cheerily, a burst of cranberries and cherries, all just slightly sour. Beneath, tones of sweet red apple and caramel malt buttress and support the sour fruits. Taste: Just a sublime fruit beer. This opens much like an apple juice made with gala and honeycrisp, which has had a significant amount of cherry-cranberry preserves dissolved in it. There are faint hints of tart sour to the fruit, and the barest whiff of farmland funk along for the ride. All of that dances atop a solid platform of sweet caramel malt flavor. The finish and aftertaste are a mix of the fruit juice and malt aspects. Sublime. Mouthfeel: Thick, creamy, smooth, clingy, sticky, and yes - that bit of word salad adequately sums up the feel. Overall: "Sublime" has already been mentioned, so it shall be left at that. Personally, Iíd put this in my regular drinking rotation, were I closer to Wisconsin.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a murky copper ruby color with whitish head. Aroma is apple, cranberry, cherry as expected. Taste is a nice balance of sweetness and tartness. Taste similar to aroma with some strawberry as well. Excellent fruit beer as expected from New Glarus. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
