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!

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.

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.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2014 (20/01/2013) 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. //////////////////////////////////////// Had this again thanks to JefVerstraete - totally overrated the first time around, this is just candy / sugar etc. very sweet, fun first time but quickly becomes a chore. I do not get why this is rated so high this lemonade & I love sweet candy things like this but this tastes almost like some macro chemical fruit beers.

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 (8140) - 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.

badgerben (4395) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Courtesy of Skyview. Dark red color with a large head. Aroma of cranberries and cinnamon. Tart cranberry flavor with a decent showing of cherries. Pretty sweet. More reminicent of their Cran-bic than Belgian Red, which is not a bad thing.

Patrickctenchi (3578) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Deep red with a slight, tan head. Aroma of cherry, apple....rich, yet light. Wonderfully full sweetness, cranberry, apple, cherry...spiced. Bold, remarkably natural flavours. A pleasure.

750 ml. bottle. Thanks Jeff! Pours a nice muted red with a slightly pink head. Nice aroma of cherries and cranberries. Taste is sweet cherries, tart cranberries, apples, and wood. Starts sweet and finishes tart. Excellent, excellent.

Bottle shared at SL via Tara... Light purple tint, small head. Great nose on this beer. Smells like raspberry/cherry pie. Taste reminds me of the raspberry tart....just a little lighter body wise. Tons of cherries, light apple notes. Sweet but not sugary. Body has an oily base with a good amount of carbonation. Overall.... really enjoyed this beer. Wish I had more. I could drink this all the time
