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!

Thanks a TON bauermj. What a treat! Absolutely gorgeous pour, deep ruby orange with a lively carbonation and two fingers of light beige tan head. Nose is magical, smells like green apple jolly ranchers and a mulled cranberry cider. Candy-ish but acidic and lightly spicy. Hints of cherry and almond pit creep through as well. One of the most incredible and engaging aromas Iíve ever encountered. Oh man, this beer isnít even fair.. . spicy and tart flavor with a lot of fruit candy coming through and a wonderful acidity. Medium body and soft but crisp carbonation.

From the tap at the brewery. Very similar to the Rubaeus from Founders Brewery. Pours hazy brown with a fluffy beige head. Aroma is cherries, berries and some vanilla. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet fruitiness. Finishes with a sight sour. Great stuff.

HuskerTan (2168) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - FEB 25, 2017
Bottle. A- Apples, cranberry, cherry, jolly ranchers. A- Red color, hazy liquid, tan head. T- Cherry juice, apple juice, subtle cranberry, sweet, candy. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, sweet finish. O- Oh New Glarus, why do you tease me with your deliciousness and then be so far away. This is a textbook fruit beer and I want so much more. Tasted like a mixed bouquet of red fruits and candy. Delish.

muzzlehatch (4950) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2016
750 ml bottle, I think from Badger Spirits in Beloit, WI, about 3-4 months old, served a little below cellar temp in a New Glarus flute. Pours a cloudy rust-copper with a medium fizzy off-white head that dies away quickly, leaving thick crystalline lacing and a thin lasting ring...fruity, lightly honey-sweet aroma at first seems to be all cranberry, but the apple shows through with some time and perhaps the cherry as well, eventually; also a touch of flowers (lilac) and a bit of perfume - not quite as entrancing as some of this breweries other fruit beers and not, at least in this bottleís case, quite as potent...but on the tongue it has the usual wonderful sweet-tart-acidic-fruity character as the Belgian Red and other masterpieces; this one is a little softer I think and less acidic, although the finish is fairly strong and thereís a lasting cran-apple note that continues on for minutes after the last sip...strong effervescence, juicy texture that nonetheless offers plenty of pale malt - these things always do in the last judgment taste and feel like beer, and thatís the great tribute to this brewery. Iíve had this probably 6 or 8 times including a couple of times on tap, and this is probably the least impressive sample thus far, though still excellent. Draught renditions had a bit more carbonation and a bit more tartness and some lactic qualities which I like.
