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!

Good to have friends in Junction City Wis...shared a bottle or two...guys and gals this is unreal fruit soursness balance at its best...why travel across the pond when you van get this unreral..sparkling fruit englomerance on your palate...cranberries are tart but this beeer uses them to get the backbone of the beer come through, a slight acidicy, slight tart but the strange malt comes through in the finish...not too dry but dry enough to get you wanting more more more.

Red brown pout with minimal head. Aroma of cherry, cranberries, apple, and sweet malt. Taste is like cranapple juice with a overly sweet malt backbone. Quality, but too sweet for me.

Cherries are most noticeable with an a hint of Apple and an overall aroma somewhere between wine and cider. Pours a murky almost opaque reddish/orangish brown with a thick off white/light tan foamy head which fades fairly quickly leaving a slight ring on the glass. As in the aroma, cherries are the first thing I noticed. The fruit combination is really nice. Medium bodied with a clean mouthfeel. The finish is crisp with a hint of wild yeastish sourness. Overall this is a very very nice beer.

Wow. Pretty much the best fruit beer Iíve had. Smells nice, and tastes like a mixed juice box. New Glarus kills it in this category. This being the best I have had from them. Hard to believe thereís booze in this. Finishes really dry. Epic sauce for when you roll home from the bar with new friends.

Murky rust color with small tan head. Big fruity bouquet. Taste - tart cherry and apple flavors. Tastes a lot like a sour ale. Tons of juicy flavor and tastes a lot like the Wisconsin Red Ale. A bit more sour than that one. Some flaked barley malt taste adds depth. The Serendipity is a top notch fruit infused ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From the bottle. Pours a nice dark red-brown (pour it when the sun can brighten your glass!) And it has a nice foam on the pour with good lacing. The fruity aroma is fantastic, cherries come thru the most. They all work together, and the cherry flavor starts first with the cranapple taking over. The cranberry makes the finish a bit dry when i want it to be juicy, but overall it is fantastic.

Shared 25 oz. bottle, and poured to fest goblets showing a hazed, brownish copper color, with a modest, diminishing layer of off white, bubbly head foam, and light spots & strands of lacing. The aroma was expressive fruitiness as grape & cherry, cider-like notes, and candy/cough drop sweetness. Medium+ bodied, with perky effervescence, the taste was rather sweet, with tartness, a hint of grain, and peppery bitterness blended in. Some tanniny astringency, and just a touch of dryness finished it off. Positioned somewhere between a Sour, a Fruit ale, and maybe even a cider. A bit too sweet for my tastes on a regular basis, but the full flavor drew me in this time.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 02.02.2014, 0,74l bottle @ home, courtesy of RobertDale:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is sweet and slightly fresh fruity, sweet cherries, caramel malts, craneberries, soda powder, apple juice, cherry jam. Taste is sweet cherries, caramel malts, fermented apples, craneberry juice, soda powder, sorrel, hints of chili. Light acidity, soft carbonation. Nice enough, feels a little artificial and candy like.
