COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Thanks a TON bauermj. What a treat! Absolutely gorgeous pour, deep ruby orange with a lively carbonation and two fingers of light beige tan head. Nose is magical, smells like green apple jolly ranchers and a mulled cranberry cider. Candy-ish but acidic and lightly spicy. Hints of cherry and almond pit creep through as well. One of the most incredible and engaging aromas Iíve ever encountered. Oh man, this beer isnít even fair.. . spicy and tart flavor with a lot of fruit candy coming through and a wonderful acidity. Medium body and soft but crisp carbonation.

boFNjackson (4129) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle @ our annual Christmas night bottle share... Poured clear, vibrant red with a mild, bubbly head. Aroma of candied malts and fruits. Tasted of cough drops, lifesavers, ring pops. Cherries, raspberries, cranberries came through. Candied/artificial fruits and sweetness with a strong tartness. WTF. Quite sweet and very meh. I donít understand the high score here.

5000 (6241) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Bottle: † Ruby in color, moderate to large frothy off-white head, nice lacing. † Huge fruity aroma, bright, big Cran-Apple aroma with hints of Cherry. † I donít know if you can get a fruit beer to smell so authentic and real, as if its got the fruit right in it. † Both sweet and tart on the tongue, Cherry, Apple, and Cranberry perfectly melded together. † Moderate to full body and mouthfeel. † Amazing balance, fruity that is both sweet and tart. † Happy Accidents are awesome! † Thanks to Ughsmash for getting me a few of these! † Simply awesome and real authentic Fruit Beer!

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 24, 2012

jjkuck10 (66) - , Wisconsin, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Pours red-pink slightly copper color with mild but lively head, fuzzy. Aroma is a strong fermented fruit punch, can distinguish all 3 fruits. Taste start sweet moving into a strong tart-sour flavor but nice finish overall. Lively carbonation. Another great fruit beer!

SrSilliGose (3248) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - DEC 24, 2012
Bottle. A touch of soured cranberries backed by a rich jammy Apple and cherry mixture. Great fruit character. Complex fruit juice beer. Some tingling carbonation. Nice body. Not overly sweet. Fun go drink. Liked.

Pours a sparkling clear ruby with a foamy offwhite head that might even have a tint of red as well. Head diminshes to almost nothing quickly, and leaves almost no lacing. Aroma jumps at you with apples and cherries. Tastes tart, with plenty of apple and cranberry. Really great.
