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!

Bottle from Ghostface.. thank you. Pour is ruby red with some nice light white head. Moderate lacing and a nice white collar left after a minute or two. Aroma of ripe cranberry, yellow apple, some peach and white grapes. Taste is same with a good amount of carbonation. Sweet cranberry lasting on the finish. Finish is slightly dry. Like a sparkling cranberry apple spritzer. Overall another win from New Glarus.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours the color that the blend of those three fruits should be in a beer, a nice ruby with a pink/tan head. Aroma of cherries, cranberries, hints of apple, some light oak, and a nice spiciness. The flavor is a blend of fruits that is balanced very nicely by the beer. Average texture. A good beer, even if you don’t like fruit beers.

trumpetskid (106) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Aroma of tart cherry, apple and a hint of cranberry. The taste is pure fruit, with a nice tart finish. There is a good amount of carbonation. This beer tastes like really good sparkling juice.

ThirstyBird (1696) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - FEB 11, 2013
Tasted at RBBWG 2013, thanks Travlr! Pours a clear brilliant reddish brown color with a tan ring for a head. Smell is apple, cinnamon, cherry - a nose full of fruit. Big fruit taste - the aforementioned fruit ending nicely dry and crisp. Body is medium - round & slick with nice active carbonation. Another very tasty fruit brew from New Glarus.

dekester1 (324) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Poured, in a wine glass, a clear rubby red - copper color with a very nice fine foam head with slowly faded to extensive lacing. Aroma was fruity with malty sweetness in the background. Taste was very fruity - cherries, cranberry tart and slight apple - with a malty backbone and a mild floral hop finish. Palate was very nice. Overall, another exceptional fruit beer offering from Dan at New Glarus!

Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 10, 2013
750mL bottle. Poured fiery garnet with a dense-bubbled, easily-resuscitated khaki head. The aroma picked up a tart blend of cherries and cranberries paired with a bit of oak and floral character.. great balance between sugars and tart character. The flavor found tart cherries and apple skins on the tip of the tongue, with meatier apple following.. lively carbonation, tart cranberries, and oak surrounded.. finished tart over a lot of tasty, residual, fruity sugars. Light-medium bodied with a lot of carbonation on the palate.. really dried out in the end.. great brew!

peteinSD (1402) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Bottle from Neal - thanks! Clear reddish pour with a froth of white foam. Aroma is apple, berries, sugary fruit, and light tart. Taste is heavy with apple and cranberry and sugary fruit. Clean, lightly coating mouthfeel. Sugary but very good in small pours - I cannot imagine anyone really making better fruit beers than New Glarus.

Pours a deep red with minimal head after pouring. Smells of tart cherry and apple. Tastes almost the same as it smells. Drinks very similar to theBelgian Red and the apple in it does nicely too even it out.
