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!

HuskerTan (2202) - 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.

Bottle thanks to Mike. Pours murky orange brown. Cherry nose. Very close to Perry’s aged red. No existent carbonation, very sweet. Great Belgian style fruit beer.

muzzlehatch (4959) - 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 bottle’s 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 there’s 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 that’s the great tribute to this brewery. I’ve 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.

Bottle shared. Pours hazy brown-ish with a fluffy beige head. Aroma is cinnamon, apples, cherries, berries and some vanilla. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet. Lots of fruitiness and almost no bitterness. Light sourness. Great stuff.

Sweet, red fruits, grenadine, cranberriee, cherries. Clear, dark reddish. Light sour. Immediate sweet fruits coming up, sticky texture, cherries and other red berries, lively carbonation. Decent Fruit Beer, just a touch too sweet for me. Keg at Sportsman Bar, New Glarus.

drpimento (3635) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 12, 2016
Wow! There it is - perfection in a bottle. The aroma was tantalizing when I opened the bottle and upon sniffing the brew in the glass ’ ho ho! Such volatile perfumey scents of apples, cherries and flowers. Flavor is an amazing blend similar to nose but with the added dimensions of perfectly balanced sweet/tat, perhaps hint of yeast. Superb finish. Damn this stuff is good.

beezydrunkit (29) - Alabama, USA - JUL 24, 2016
Bottle. Reddish copper color. Off white head. Aroma of advertised fruit - apple, cranberry, and cherry. Flavor more of the same, but beautifully balanced. No one flavor dominated. Pretty sweet but with a nice mellow tartness to balance it out. Medium to light body with medium carbonation. Has a sparkling wine quality. Super drinkable, but take your time and appreciate the complexity and craftsmanship. Nice beer for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
