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!

Thanks go out to Ri0 for this bottle! A- A dark red colour, big head of foam that shrinks down quickly but leaves some nice lacing behind. S- As soon as I popped the cap, the aromas literally permeated the area around me. Big green apples and sweet cherries every darn where...ooh..I am SO digging it. I could almost hover my nose over the glass for hours but...itís time to take a sip or 2, eh? T- Oh my! The apples and cherries are there as expected but better executed than even I expected(not my first venture into NG Fruit/Vegetable beers) and then Iím hit with a mild cranberry tartness. Whoah, Nellie, this brew kills it! M- Medium bodied, carbonation light until near/at/after the swallow where it perks up a bit. MF, like everything else screams nectar of the gods. O- From my past track record for NG brews, I had high expectations. Those expectations were exceeded! Marvelous true Session beer!

Shared thanks to Dave. Pours out an attractive reddish colors with a small white head. Aroma is of fruity soda, some apple, cranberry, cherry, light syrup. Taste is complex, lots of layers of fruity goodness, sweet apple, fresh cranberry, light tartness, cherries, sweet berry, apple pie. This is really well done!

Super good. Not a normal fruity beer fan but this breaks the rules. Straight up raspberries but not too sweet.

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours reddish brown with a delightful mixed fruit aroma. There is a delicious berry/cherry flavor with plenty of carbonation and a tart finish. Quite complex with an oaky presence.

Bottle from Guerde! Many thanks for a 100!!! Pours dark copper /amber. Aroma is rather fresh berry. Fruits du bois. Med body. Flavor is tart mixed berry - some cherry for sure. Itís extremely delicious.

Prufrockstar (1442) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 24, 2013
750 ml bottle, shared with friends on a rooftop deck on one of the first really nice spring days in Seattle. Pours clear, reddish brown (I hear thatís called burgundy, which sounds much more attractive than the way I just put it). Off white head, some retention, very little lacing. Aroma of ripe fruit - apples, cranberries, and cherries (surprise surprise). They blend beautifully, the smell is lush, ripe and inviting. Taste is sweet, fruity, slightly tart -- thereís a lot more complexity to this on the nose and tongue than I can articulate, which leaves me a little frustrated that I canít have more to try to sort it out (damn you, Wisconsin, for being so far away!). Medium body, average carbonation, creamy texture. Delightful all around.

bobbyberbiglia (188) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - APR 23, 2013
22oz Bottle A - Pours a browhish red with a small head that dissipates quickly. Mild lacing. S - Pungent cherries! Some creamy malt as while. T - Cherries and more cherries with apples in the background. Oaks notes particularly vanilla. M - Light bodied. Tingling fizz. Mouth watering. Sweat/tart finish. O - Love the Fruit Ale category, but hard for me to call this a beer. Never the less, Delightful!

DoublEE (783) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - APR 22, 2013
his is easily one of the best fruit beers that Iíve ever had and one of the finest that New Glarus has ever created! This is right at the top of the list with the Belgian Red and the Raspberry Tart. I really enjoyed the combination of sweet red fruit, oak, vanilla and the slight sour character the most in Serendipity. I highly recommend and suggest going out and getting this if youíre a fan of NG fruit ales and if you live in Wisconsin or live near the border.

aroma is cherry and cranberry, mostly cherry though. looks brownish red with slight purple hue. taste is very cherry with apple asserting itself as well. cranberry seems to link the two more than anything. smooth with a slight viscosity.
