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!

furthur (426) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Bottle at share, cloudy reddish brown body, little head. Nose is cranberry and apple cider, a little malt. Taste is sweet apple cider, some cinnamon, a little astringency from the cranberry, but it’s subtle. This is sweet, almost like the sparkling apple cider. Palate is fairly light, carbonation good, nice and soft.

Big thick jammy red cloudy with a little lacing and no head. Firmly berry, sticky cherry and sweet as you like. Rich sweet cherry mulch, terse cooling jammy sweetness and smooth throughout. No kick to it. Finishes stamps of red berry and candied apple.

2014 bottle. Pours a red/brown true cranberry juice color. Aroma is an earthy cranberry and cherry with vanilla. Taste is a sweet cranberry, apple, cherry with vanilla and a malt backbone that hits at the end. Soft, lightly carbonated mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jahshuwuh (492) - USA - DEC 25, 2014
A dark cherry red color with a little white head around the rim. Smell is copious amounts of cherry, apple, cranberry. Taste is a sour but sweet cherry that immediately gives way to a sweet caramel malt that dries away the sour. Vanilla from the barrel as well shines through. Truly a dessert in a bottle, A vanilla cherry dream. Bravo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

onceblind (5490) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Slightly hazy ruby with a big sticky strawberry/cherry candy nose. The flavor is much the same, very candy like with over sweet cherry and strawberry. Not much else going on. Juice basically. With carbonation and a whisper of a beery finish.

TimE (4120) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 12, 2014
Dark red brown color. Soft nose with each fruit, apples, cherries and cranberries very distinctive. Mildly sweet, slightly phenolic. The mouth is like stewed apples with some oak and cinnamon with cherries and cranberries in the background. Thick, malty and smooth mouth with slight acidity hitting the back of the throat. Super well balanced. Fucking amazing fruit. Lots of cranberries and apples.
