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 thanks to Andrew. Pours a dark red with a thin head. Fruit cocktail nose of berries, apples, and cranberries. Sweet berry, apple fruit flavors that are juicy and a little too sweet. Iím always open to try a new New Glarus fruit beer, but this was a little too much like fruit cocktail to me.

Lukasmh (617) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2015
Bottle. Pours murky reddish amber with lasting beige head. Aroma is like a fruit bomb. Sweet red mellow apples, cherries, slight slight tartness from cranberry, candy, candy, candy, bland selv slik, PEZ, marzipan, sweet soft liquorice. Taste is liquid candy. Sweet honey, slight spice and then red sweet mellow apples, cherries, marzipan, subtle tartness from cranberries and reminiscent of lollypop. Fizzy body. Slight sour cherries in finish. Sirupy, creamy and sugary. Same soft liquorice notes in taste. This is a guilty pleasure, indeed!

Vestergaard (958) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2015
Bottle thanks to Klimaet. Pours a murky, deep reddish with a big, off white, frothy head. Aroma is like freakiní cherry-lollypops! Jam, cherry liqour, E-numbers, slight cheese, slight licorice. Taste is sweet, sour, lollypops, marzipan. This is not beer, but still tasty, somewhat disturbing, and pretty nice. Red, sweet apples as well. What is this??? Dunno how to rate this shit!!

Bottle, Ebenezerís Tent Town bottle share . Really excited to try this one! Huge amount of cherries on aroma and taste. Fairly light acidic notes. Super tart. Super clean. Really well-balanced. Holds up really well as a fruit beer and this is one of the best examples. Up there with the Belgians. Top work New Glarus!

jercraigs (8670) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2015
2015-08-14. Murky red-brown body small beige head. 3+ Aroma has a crazy fruity cherry aroma. 9+ Flavour is similar, tons of sweet cherry notes with a whisper of raspberry. Smooth average plus to medium bodied palate, soft carbonation. Probably more nuance than my meager notes captured, but this was lovely stuff. More please. Bottle at Campground Brewdown.

This is actually my least favorite of the New Glarus fruit beers. I actually get a beer flavor from it. Little less sweet that other ones. Mildly tart cranberry taste. Some hints of apple and cherry.

Bottle at all killer no filler. Pours a pinkish red with tiny pinkish head. Aroma is mostly laden with cherries with a hint of summer berries. Taste is cherries, raspberries, hint of strawberries and some mild acidity.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2015 Sample at Great Taste of the Midwest. Aroma is tart apple, maybe cranberry. Appearance is lighter red, off white head. Taste is apples, cranberries, apple skins, some yeast. Mouthfeel is lighter than Iíd like, but refreshing. Overall, wonderful.
