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!

Aroma of cherry throat losenge, apple cider, and slight black cherry. Pours red with light head. Taste is intense like a sweet cider. Tart and fruity. Good stuff!

THE stout tasting Pt1. Thanks to Bruce for this much wanted beer. Clear red - amber, little pale cream coloured head. Softish palate, slightly airy. Lovely sweet and sour fruity apples and pears nicely contrasted with tart cherry, strawberry and raspberry. A little sweet cream and then a soft finish. This was a joy of fruity zing after the triple Dark Lord attack!

Bottle. Sweet and fruity aroma, almost bubblegummy, with both apple and cherry evident. Not much head. Mostly clear, dark reddish amber body. The one fruit of the three that isn’t as evident in the nose is the first you notice in the flavor with a tart cranberry finish. Really outstanding but is meant to be shared due to its sweetness.

Leighton (10794) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle post-The Stout Tasting Part I, London - many thanks to Bruce for keeping the party going! Pours clear purple with a fine white cream cap. Big tart grape and berry aroma, some raspberry. Big sweet flavor, fairly thick, some grapes. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Big and juicy. Reminiscent of bug juice. It’s kind of sugary. Still, really tasty.

While I wasn’t a big fan of the apple ale, I absolutely LOVE this brew. The sweetness from the cherries and cranberries really come through in the finish and make it a lot more enjoyable to me Delicious beer that can be appreciated by both the biggest beer geeks and those who don’t enjoy beer at all. The problem that we always run into when we’ve got this on hand is that it’s gone way too quickly.

Not as good as Wisconsin Belgian Red, but pretty darn good. Hopefully the drought will come to an end soon and Red will be back on the shelves in 2013. Serendipity will have to hang with Raspberry Tart for now.

(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.

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.

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.
