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!

Bottle via Atom, thanks Adam! Pours a dark amber to purple color with light pinkish head. Aroma is more cranberry and cherry forward with the apple coming in more when the beer warms a bit. Taste is slightly tart cherry to start, more sweetness followed by a bit of red apple with the cranberry coming in at the end to really make the tart factor come into play. I loved this beer as Iíve loved pretty much all New Glarus fruit beer. This one is just under Belgian Red as my favorite.

Bottle to glass. Pours a cloudy nut brown color with slight reddish hues and a very thin off white head. Aroma is reminiscent of an apple cider with a slight tart raspberry character. Sweet apple, raspberry, mildly tart flavor. Light in body and goes down very smooth. Phenomenal!

Busick (368) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 24, 2014
VERY sweet and loaded with fruit! Almost pushes a syrup taste. I have to tip my hat to the balance between all the various fruits and the overall taste of this beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle sampled at Muckfest V on 7/11/14. Thanks Motortoddhead! Clear red pour with a medium beige head. Aroma of cherry, berry, malt and sweet and funky tartness. Malty flavor with berries and cherries before a tart apple finish.

jbruner (2167) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Pours a clear copper red from the bottle with thin khaki head. Aroma of tart cherries and crisp sour apple. Taste is more toward the apple, but nice sour sweetness. Clean, crisp finish with a nice lingering tartness. Very nice, sucks they only made it once.

GTAEgeek (1164) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 17, 2014
750 mL bottle, received in trade from TheHOFF43, and shared at Ale Alpharetta. It pours a dark, brownish-orange, with a minimal tan head. The aroma is apples, cranberries, cherries, caramel, and vanilla. Fruity, mellow sweetness, with a very light sourness. Medium body, creamy, and a little sharp. Overall, this is a nice, very fruity, flavorful beer. Very well made, with depth and complexity. The mouthfeel is a little flat and disappointing, but otherwise, a great beer.

Cybercat (3226) - Georgia, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Pours a clear ruby-amber with a nice light tan head. Aroma has a strong strawberry overtone - I LOVE strawberries! A bit of malt pokes through. Flavor is largely strawberry, sweet but not cloying, a little sour, with a malt underpinning. Firm texture is loaded with fizz. What a nice discovery.

Bottle, fresh, bought in Wisconsin today 7/15. Pours a dark cherry red. Aromaís of cherry, bit of apple. Taste is a melange of fruit. Sweet and fruity, very minimal beer about it, but itís nice in that way.
