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 shared with a few buddies. Well I knew New Glarus delivers some great fruit beers, but I didnít expect it to be this good. Fruit aroma right up front, sort of like smelling a cherry soda. Lots of apple in the flavor. Would be my absolute go to beer in the hot FL weather. Outstanding!!

I canít imagine a beer I would rather drink on a regular basis moreso than this. The flavors are so huge and inviting that there is never too much. to polish off

Extremely sour fruity aroma, first apple then lambic fruity sourness. Excellent carbonation even in the small stupid gabf glass. Perfect blende of the fruits and the sourness, I felt like I was in the cranberry bogs. I would have stayed at the booth all night but the line would have rioted.

Great fruit beer, arguably better than the raspberry or cherry varieties from New Glarus. A nice, sour funk with a great tart fruitiness to balance it out. Josh brought this one back from WI for the winter beer tasting in Dec. 2012.

his is easily one of the best fruit beers that Iíve ever had and one of the finest that New Glarus has ever created! This is right at the top of the list with the Belgian Red and the Raspberry Tart. I really enjoyed the combination of sweet red fruit, oak, vanilla and the slight sour character the most in Serendipity. I highly recommend and suggest going out and getting this if youíre a fan of NG fruit ales and if you live in Wisconsin or live near the border.

Bottle. Dark cranberry colored pour, a little light lacing/carbonation and an aroma of tart cran-apple juice. Flavor a perfect meld of apples, cranberries and tart cherrries, really nice tart crisp (almost dry) finish.You really canít do better than this when it comes to fruit beers, almost perfect.

Thanks to Travlr for sharing this one. 75 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2013. Has the colour of red apples with a dash of copper. Smell is incredible, reminds me of a kind of candy I had as a kid, not sure of the name, pixie dust candy? Blended with very sweet red apples, non-tart cranberries, cherries,Ö Taste is the before mentioned candy, cherry juice, sweet red apples, lots of candy sweetness, zero fruit acidity, raspberries, caramel, very sweet but not sugar sweet, more candy,Ö Body like airÖ crazily goodÖ damn. I could drink just so much of this.

Pours amber brown with a small light beige, almost peach colored head. Smells strongly of fruits, reminiscent of apples, cranberries, and cherries. Taste is fruity, sweet, and tart all at once; a hint of cherry up front that moves to cranberry tartness and finishes with strong apple and apple skin flavors. Light-to-medium bodied with a lightly prickly texture and fizzy mouth-carbonation, New Glarus Serendipity finishes with a soft tart dryness.

Nice fruit beer. It is sweet so share it with a couple people. Flavor of red plums and apples. Another great fruit beer from New Glarus.
