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!

Poured from the bottle. Color is an orange amber with good clarity. a nice thin white head, carbonation is fine.aroma is cherry and cranberry. Sourness is very minor, more of just a slight tartness. Flavor is sour apple and chaeeries, with the cranberry tartness coming in on end, does taste like a fruit cider. this is very good and very drinkable. Highly recommended.

Bottled. Pours a two-toned dark red with orange highlights. Head is initially rather large, bright white, but is mostly diminishing. Lots of fine bubbles streaming throughout. Cherry is still the most dominant fruit in the aroma though the cranberries are noticeable at the tail end amongst the tart and lightly sour funk. Cherries and juicy apple cider up front in the flavor, which is moderately-high in sweetness and subdued in its sourness, finishing with some apple pie baking spices, white bread, tart cranberry juice. Dan hits another fruit beer out the ballpark. This is a beer truly for all seasons - refreshing enough for spring and summer, tarty apple cider notes bring to mind autumn, subtle spiciness would lend itself well to being mulled in the winter.

750ml bottle. Pours a hazy deep red color with a huge frothy off white head. Sweet aromas of cherry, apples, cranberries, and grapes. Taste is of tart cranberry juice, a mix of sour and sweet apples, and cherries. Great beer.

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 (4152) - 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 can’t 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 children’s 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 don’t 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 wouldn’t choose to drink these very often.
