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!

Indra (2604) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - AUG 17, 2014
On draft at the brewery. Fruity, sweet and lightly tart aroma, lots of berryish fruit cherry, floral tones and faint honey, perhaps some slight woodiness in the background. Lightly hazy garnet in color with a sparse, fine, fading head. Flavor profile is quite sweet and fruity, some slight tartness with more berry and cherry flavors and some faint mustiness. Sort of like fermented berry syrup. Some biscuit/cracker in the background but the sweet fruitiness is dominant, and only a faint amount of tartness is present here. Smooth but well-carbonated feel and slightly sticky, body is medium-full with a touch of warmth after the swallow. Like fruit juice-beer.

Thanks Steve! Une robe ambrée sur laquelle flotte une mousse confortable. Un nez profondément fruité. Des petites baies rouges et des pommes. Une touche de vanille et des biscuits qui ne sont pas trop sucrés. Les arômes sont délicieux et sans artifices. Je pourrais même dire que cette représentation me semble assez exceptionnelle. Au goût, le mélange fruité est riche et profond. Beaucoup de cerises, de petits fruits sauvages et de fruits du verger s’animent sur mes papilles et les rendent bien heureuses. Le côté acidulé de cet amalgame vitaminé est tout en justesse. En bouche, le liquide a un corps juteux. Le pétillement est bien ajusté. La texture est douce. En finale, les fruits offrent une vibrante performance teintée de douceur et de fine acidité. Brillante biere fruitée. Extrêmement facile à boire. Simplement fantastique!

Une belle bouteille couverte de cire. Un liquide rose brun orangé. Un nez de paraffine, de fruits, de pomme, de cerise. La bouche fruitée avec de la vanille, une douce acidité. Agréable, se boit tout seul. Matière bière aux fruits c’est dure à battre.

Nephilium (1344) - Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2014
The aroma is predominantly cranberry with apple undertones. Pours a clear red with a full light pink head. The flavor is very sweet, especially if there was a wild fermentation. The flavor starts with tart cranberries, then changes to apple cider, and finishes slightly tart with a hint of cherries. Very light and easy drinking. I was not expecting this much apple flavor to come through in a beer. If you like sweet fruit beers, you will probably enjoy this more then me.

Pours a dark red/brown with a finger of wispy light tan head. Nose is apple, raspberry, cranberry, fruit juice. Taste matches nose, apples, cranberry, very jammy, a touch tart, little dry on the finish. Very light and spritzy, good carbonation. New glarus knows how to do these fruit beers. A bit on the sweet side though, needed a little more dryness or bitterness maybe. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dr_Fellini (387) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUL 26, 2014
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 (379) - 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.

Bottle shared. Pours hazy reddish brown with a tiny cream head. Aroma clearly shows the apple, cranberry and cherries with a little cinnamon. Flavour is over moderate sweet and light moderate acidic. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
