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!

Holy Fruit Bomb ! Pours a deep ruby brownish color with a equally strange colored pink grey head. The nose is full of harvest fruit apple, cherry, cranberry, grape juice, a touch of vanilla and oak as well. The palate is sweeter than I expected and very juicy. Big fruit that is in your face when served cold but mellows out slightly as it warms to room temp. As it warms more acidity emerges with some darker fruit funk appearing in the finish. Nice beer but a little to sweet. Thanks JStax !

If this is a temporary replacement for Belgian Red I hope that it sticks around a bit longer. This is right up there with Raspberry Tart as a world class sour fruit beer. Before it disappears from the shelves I am going to pick up a few more for the cellar.

Aroma / Appearance - A purplish red body shimmers and glows. The red edges give the color of a setting sun. Dirty white flecks of head and soft legs give it just the right amount of depth. Cranberries, apples, and cherry fruit pie sweeten the air like the judging table at a county fair.This is a blend of a candy store and an orchard.

Flavor / Palate - Cranberries and apples are sweet on the tip of the tongue. The tang that hangs in the back of the throat is like a sharp lemonade. From start to finish this is a great balance between sweet and sour. Until Belgian Red comes back this is a fine substitute.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2013 Bomber from Casanova. Wow, I love this. Better than the Raspberry Tart and Belgian Red for me. Awesome apple, cranberry, and cherry. The flavor explodes and isnít overly tart or sour. Phenomenal!

Bottle, courtesy Brigadier, thanks! Dark ruby pour, big white head, good retention/lace. Aroma of cranberry, apple, sour cherry, raspberry, light barrel. Taste tart upfront, then sweeter, sour cherry, cranberry, apple, light barrel, light cola. Palate is soft, slick, sweet fruity finish. Really nice all around.

Originally reviewed: 11/20/12. Thanks to my brother for sending a couple bottles of this my way! One for now, one for Thanksgiving dinner. Bottle split and shared with a friend. Poured into a small wine glass. Pours a dark tawny-tinted red with a pinkish head on top. The nose, the nose, my kingdom for the nose! Cherry jolly ranchers. Need I say more? Such a fruity and tart aroma, I canít think of a better way to describe it. Nothing really stands out much different than the BR or RT, but thatís not necessarily a bad thing. Effervescent bubbles give this beer life! Crisp and bubbly - fits this beer to perfection. Big flavors of cherries and apples. The cranberries really show up on this finish as this tarts up quite nicely. This sets itself apart from the other fruity mainstays from these guys. Itís sweet, no doubt, some would say too sweet. But the tartness comes through at the right moment, giving a nice kick to the back end. I think Iíd be able to get through a bottle of this one my own, but I find it is the perfect beer to share. Sweet. Tart. Tasty. Thank you, Dan. You work quite the magic with some fruit.

Bottle shared by badnewsbeers. Clear red-brown body, medium tight dirty pinkish cream head. Tart, sweet nose, grassy and dusty, fruity and rich. Sharp, sweet body, with tart apple (especially), cranberry, and cherry; grassy and yeasty. Slightly medicinal. Crisp, rich, and delicious.
