COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

(750ml bottle) clear brilliant copper, effervescent. Nose of cherry, apple, urinal cakes, cinnamon, spicy candy. Taste of rich cherry syrup, cinnamon, apple pie, amazing and delicious. Complex but hard to even describe.

Martinus (2739) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2013
Clear red brown colour, slight white rim. Aroma of fruit, apple, cherry, red berries, caramel. Did I mention lots of fruits? Sweet fruity flavour. Sweet fruity finish, lots of apples and cherry.
Sweet, maybe too sweet, but still balanced. I can see the attraction of this, but wouldn’t want to drink more than a small taster glass.

cards04 (1604) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 20, 2013
Pours a dark pink/light red with white bubbly head. Aromas are cranberry sauce, sour cherries, and apple juice as it warms. Just as advertised. Like all new glarus fruit beers, bubbly and effervescent. Sour flavours...cherry and granny smith apples. Mild finish. Excellent. Fruity, fresh, awesome. Very glad I got to try this.

OnWisconsin (132) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Poured I to a tulip a very clear dark red with a nice 1 finger white head. Aroma hits you with some huge fruit with tart cherries and apple. Taste follows th.e nose with Cherry up front followed by tart apples. My first thought was that I had a cherry jolly rancher. I can’t help but appreciate how they turned this into a beer....incredible. Mouthfeel is light with a lot of carbonation that tingles the tongue. A very nice fruit beer to sip on and nothing else.

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 20, 2013
75cl bottle sample @ RBBWG 2013, courtesy of Travlr. Cuivrée, col beige moyen. Arôme est agréablement fruité avec un mélange distinct et perceptible de pomme, canneberge et cerise qui s’entrechoquent pour un bouquet bien balancé. Pointe de malt et touche sucrée caramel le tout gardant un soupçon d’aigreur fruité. Palais met bien en évidence les trois fruits énoncés sur l’étiquette. On ressent le côté râpeux de la pomme, et l’aigreur de la cerise et canneberge. Tout cela est accompagné d’un malt subtile et une amertume houblonnée qui vient juste en retrait du profil des fruits. Malheureusement le tout conserve ce côté plus jus de fruits, limite du cidre. Reste agréable, mais un verre est suffisant. Sur une échelle de points, je garde le Belgian Red et Raspeberry Tart devant avec la Serendipity en troisième.

77ships (3540) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 20, 2013
Thanks to Travlr for sharing this one. 75 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2013. Has the colour of red apples with a dash of copper. Smell is incredible, reminds me of a kind of candy I had as a kid, not sure of the name, pixie dust candy? Blended with very sweet red apples, non-tart cranberries, cherries,… Taste is the before mentioned candy, cherry juice, sweet red apples, lots of candy sweetness, zero fruit acidity, raspberries, caramel, very sweet but not sugar sweet, more candy,… Body like air… crazily good… damn. I could drink just so much of this.

pellegjr (395) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle, pours clean brown-red with light night sky head, tons of vinous, vanilla fruit aroma, fantastic sweet vanilla fruit, at the point of cloingy but doesn;t exceed the threshold, really a fantastic brew

Benzai (7219) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2013
Sampled from bottle @ RBBWG 2013. Clear mahogany red color, small off-white head. Aroma and taste are very very sweet, some chemical cherries and an incredible amount of fruit. Not my thing I’m afraid.

Pours a ruby red color, little head. Aroma is sweet with cherries, apple and citrus. This is a very good beer to serve for the Holidays. Love it.
