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!

This beer has a very fruity aroma and cherries really shine through. Carbonation is mild and this beer goes down quite smooth. Certainly a sour beer with no bitter aftertaste. Better than any cherry lambric I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wow! Reddish pour, white head that disappeared quickly. Nose is apples, cherries, berries, yeast. Tart fruity flavors, berries, apples, light spice, tart finish.

Wow, thanks for sharing this with us Mr. Unwin. Nose is big cherry and green apple aroma with a light tart note. If you took cherry cough medicine and green apple jolly ranchers and mixed them together, thatís sorta what this would smell like. Very fruity. Pour is deep pink/red colored with a clear bubbly head that disappears. Taste is all fruit. Tons of cherry and apple flavors with a light tart aspect. Very sweet but not overly so for this type of brew. Insane flavors here. I could drink this stuff all day.

Shared by the generous fella at the CCB tasting. The body has shades of red with yellow edges to it - very nice. It smelled like cherry candies and fresh sliced apples. The taste had a very nice mixture of tart cranberries, and sour cherries that was perfectly dry with the light carbonation. Vanilla, apples and oak are in the finish, and the sweetness gives a great balance. I didnít see this one coming, and it is just fucking fantastic.

Much better than the other NG fruit beers. It is tart, juicelike, and tasty as all fuck.

Super sweet and syrupy. Fruit flavor is decent but this is just way too sweet for me.

Pours ruby/cranberry colored with a medium tan/orange head...lively...beautiful color. Aroma has tart apple and sweet cherry...mildly vinous. Flavor showcases cranberry a bit more...tart...cherry creeps in...vinous and mildly oaky. Mouthfeel is light/medium and lively with a vinous/oaky dry fruity finish that lingers with cherry/cranberry. Another amazing NG fruit beer.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2013 Bottle @ Arminís bachelor party. Thanks Caleb! Pours a cloudy reddish appearance with a cream colored head. The nose really smelled like Juicy Juice or a Cran-Apple juice thatís tart with notes of spice, yeast, tons of oak, rich fruits. The fruits are very bright, fresh, and delicious in the flavor with notes of oak, tart cherries, green apples, spices, and tartness. Would love to try this baby again. Update: Fuck yeah.

750 ml bottle. Poiurs a deep reddish color with a small white head. Aroma is mostly tart cherries with touches of cranberry and apple mixed in. Flavor still has a big, beautiful cherry flavor but is a bit tarter, balances everything out quite a bit. More apple and cranberry come out as it opens up a bit more. Medium bodied, finishes on the tart end. Lovely. Beautiful beer from the master of fruit beers.
