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!

750ml waxed bottle into a HF wine glass. Thanks Yamar68! A - Pours a clear dark red body with a fingers worth of purple stained foam. Leaves behind a patchy cap and some solid lacing with a swirl. Looks very juice like but with an excellent head. S - Tart cranberries, ripe apples, some cinnamon spice from the cherries, and thatís it. Ripe, fresh, and juicy are all terms that come to mind. This might blur the line between beer and fruit juice, but who cares when it smells this great. T - Pleasantly tart cranberries, ripe apples, and some cherries and spice on the finish. Just a touch of malts can be found here but otherwise this is like drinking a sparkling cran-apple juice. Mouth feel is medium bodies with low carbonation. Iím not sure if its detrimental or not but it does feel somewhat syrupy. That does make it a bit of a chore to drink solo but the flavor is so amazing that slowly sipping on it is somewhat welcomed. O - New Glarus simply kills it with their fruit "beers". This happy accident ale certainly is a happy accident. Belgian Red really impressed me and making up for the lack of cherries with cranberries and apples is just genius. Just the right amounts of sweetness and tartness .

Bottle from Ben, thanks! Pours dark reddish brown with low head. Smell is sweet dark fruits, taste is crisp apples and sweet berry with nice acidity on the finish. a bit too sweet for me.

So good. Nose was bouquet of red fruit. Taste was amazing. Sweet and fruity with a hint of cranberry sourness at the end. Could not drink everyday but wonderful change of pace beer

Thank you Adam. Enjoyed at cellar temp with friends

A - Blood red, HUGE creamy head that fades to a still nothing

S - The amount of apple pulp in this beer is amazing. itís mind-blowing how apple-y this is. You get some raspberry tartness as well

T - Wow. Reminds me of Juicy Juice. Apple and cranberries are fantastically blended. Itís sweet, tart, lovely

M - thin body, slick and sweet finish like a fruit juice

O - Itís hard to review this beer...itís just all fruit juice with carbonation and so sweet and delicious. very impressive but Iím happy to be splitting this with a few friends.

Aromatics are awesome! Probably just the apples speaking, but this is so much more complex than the Raspberry Tart or Belgian Red! Love it!

Westmeisterís Birthday Beer Tasting Extravaganza Beer #6. I went from never having tried a New Glarus brew to trying two in a day, and I didnít even have to schlep it up to Wisconsin. Thanks to Westmeister for busting this one out the cellar. Pours a brownish red and smells live cider of the non-alcoholic variety. The sweet and tart flavors are well blended. The carbonation was ideal, as any more would have made it seem like a soda. Great beer. Want more. Bottle - Westmeisterís House - Cumming, GA
