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!

1pint 9oz bottle. Pours out a very nice deep red, similar to grape juice. Thick head that fades fast but remains thin around the glass throughout. Strong fruit aroma, cherry dominating. Lightly carbonated and lighter bodied. Sweet apple and cherry on the tongue with a tart finish. Great balance of fruit flavors! Complex and a very enjoyable beer!

750ml bottle pours a brown color with a bit of frothy head. Nice sweet fruit flavors with the cherry, cranberry and apple noticeable at different times through the taste.

Bottle from Dresden, thanks man! Dark reddish brown pour, muddy all the way through, with light white head. Aroma is cherries, apple, and lots of sweetness. Taste is tart fruity sweetness up front, followed by some apple, finishes sweet. This is delicious.

3fourths (8203) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Bottle. Clear dark brick red with a short off-white head. Fruity aroma is artificial in the way of Jolly Rancher, Kool-Aid powder and Fruit Roll Ups. Cherries are evident, apples are not, cranberries are a maybe... watermelon jolly rancher is closer. Medium body, semi-sweet, strong acidity, about what you expect if you know Belgian Red and Raspberry Tart. Gelatin filmy / syrupy terrible mouth feel, it’s basically fruit syrup filling in those kwik-e-mart pastry pies. The acid and sugar play is nice but the fruit expression is pretty terrible.

cpetrone84 (1465) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Pour is a hazy reddish copper with a light tan bubbly head. Nose is strong red apple, lots of cherry, and a faint touch of cranberry. Taste has a good bit of red Apple, moderate cherries, like cranberries, and a moderate touch of sourness. Light body, strong carb, dry finish. Fruits are extremely bright and really play well together.

Mora2000 (5834) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle at Jester King Zwanze Day. Amber pour with a white head. The aroma is full of huge cherry notes, the kind of fresh fruit you only get from New Glarus fruit beers. The flavor is more of the same. I get some gigantic cherry as well as some light tartness, a hint of brown sugar and some toffee. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. New Glares has done it again.

Poured from a bottle it is dark amber color with a slight head. The aroma is sour cherry and the taste is sweet cherry with an aftertaste of apple and it is very refreshing. It is a happy accident!!!

From a 75 cl bottle shared at home. Vintage 20312. Pours a clear reddish amber with an off white head. Aroma of apple cider. Sweet flavors of cherry, apples and a hint of cranberry. Delicicious.

750 mL. Cherry wood color with a quickly dissipating head. Cranberries, tart apple, a little woodiness, almonds and black cherries. Has a cranberry tartness that melds into a soft cherry sweetness. Body is lighter with an acidic feel.
