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: OCT 1, 2014 75cl, no mention of ABV, new exclusive American brew Anno 2012, with cherries, cranberries and apples, from De Hopduvel Gent, complex fruit brew, fruity/sour and slightly vinous/sweet, heavy, yet balanced, clear, small head, very good brew, yet expensive!

Bottle from Ben, thanks! Pours dark reddish brown with low head. Smell is sweet dark fruits, taste is crisp apples and sweet berry with nice acidity on the finish. a bit too sweet for me.

So good. Nose was bouquet of red fruit. Taste was amazing. Sweet and fruity with a hint of cranberry sourness at the end. Could not drink everyday but wonderful change of pace beer

Thank you Adam. Enjoyed at cellar temp with friends

A - Blood red, HUGE creamy head that fades to a still nothing

S - The amount of apple pulp in this beer is amazing. itís mind-blowing how apple-y this is. You get some raspberry tartness as well

T - Wow. Reminds me of Juicy Juice. Apple and cranberries are fantastically blended. Itís sweet, tart, lovely

M - thin body, slick and sweet finish like a fruit juice

O - Itís hard to review this beer...itís just all fruit juice with carbonation and so sweet and delicious. very impressive but Iím happy to be splitting this with a few friends.

Aromatics are awesome! Probably just the apples speaking, but this is so much more complex than the Raspberry Tart or Belgian Red! Love it!

Westmeisterís Birthday Beer Tasting Extravaganza Beer #6. I went from never having tried a New Glarus brew to trying two in a day, and I didnít even have to schlep it up to Wisconsin. Thanks to Westmeister for busting this one out the cellar. Pours a brownish red and smells live cider of the non-alcoholic variety. The sweet and tart flavors are well blended. The carbonation was ideal, as any more would have made it seem like a soda. Great beer. Want more. Bottle - Westmeisterís House - Cumming, GA

Bottle poured a deep red color with a fizzle of white head. Aroma has great fresh fruit, juicy apple, cranberry, cherry, and light tartness. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation medium with great crispness. Flavor has juicy apples, tart cranberry, light cherry, some pak, and a great tart and sweet contrast. Really an incredible fruit beer.

A bottle shared with Jenny to celebrate our first Victoria Day. Pours a cranberry red, pinkish and gold hues, with medium khaki head. Aroma is rich of cherry pie. A bit sugary, like jarred cherry pie filling. Flavor has some nice cherry pie sweetness and apple pie savoriness, but what really makes this is the medium cranberry tartness to balance it out. Tart up front, sweet out back. Lip smacking. The fruits are doing a nice dance here! The cranberry brings an otherwise very good sweet fruit beer into an excellent tart and sweet ale!

Nice fruit beer. It is sweet so share it with a couple people. Flavor of red plums and apples. Another great fruit beer from New Glarus.
