COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Happy Accident Fruit Ale Severe Drought, we shared the farmers horror as Wisconsins 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 Wisconsins 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 from Dak. Thanks my man. Pours a clear red-brown color with a tannish head. Aroma is cherry, apple and tart cranberry. Taste is sweet and tart. Medium bodied and sticky. Another incredible fruit beer from New Glarus. Better than Wisconsin Red? Im not prepared to say that, but its certainly open for debate. Nobody can touch NG when it comes to fruit beers.

Split a 750ml bottle. Poured a pretty clear ruby amber color with a light pink fuzzy head. Aroma was rich and fruity, some crisp apple, tart cranberry and a nice sweet cherry note to it. Flavor was just so freaking enjoyable. Highly drinkable, highly refreshing, and well balanced. This is a beer that would be enjoyed by non-beer drinkers and well as seasoned veterans.

Aroma of cherry throat losenge, apple cider, and slight black cherry. Pours red with light head. Taste is intense like a sweet cider. Tart and fruity. Good stuff!

THE stout tasting Pt1. Thanks to Bruce for this much wanted beer. Clear red - amber, little pale cream coloured head. Softish palate, slightly airy. Lovely sweet and sour fruity apples and pears nicely contrasted with tart cherry, strawberry and raspberry. A little sweet cream and then a soft finish. This was a joy of fruity zing after the triple Dark Lord attack!

Bottle. Sweet and fruity aroma, almost bubblegummy, with both apple and cherry evident. Not much head. Mostly clear, dark reddish amber body. The one fruit of the three that isnt as evident in the nose is the first you notice in the flavor with a tart cranberry finish. Really outstanding but is meant to be shared due to its sweetness.

Leighton (19802) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle post-The Stout Tasting Part I, London - many thanks to Bruce for keeping the party going! Pours clear purple with a fine white cream cap. Big tart grape and berry aroma, some raspberry. Big sweet flavor, fairly thick, some grapes. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Big and juicy. Reminiscent of bug juice. Its kind of sugary. Still, really tasty.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2016 While I wasnt a big fan of the apple ale, I absolutely LOVE this brew. The sweetness from the cherries and cranberries really come through in the finish and make it a lot more enjoyable to me Delicious beer that can be appreciated by both the biggest beer geeks and those who dont enjoy beer at all. The problem that we always run into when weve got this on hand is that its gone way too quickly.

Not as good as Wisconsin Belgian Red, but pretty darn good. Hopefully the drought will come to an end soon and Red will be back on the shelves in 2013. Serendipity will have to hang with Raspberry Tart for now.

thirdeye11 (6131) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 22, 2013
(750ml bottle) clear brilliant copper, effervescent. Nose of cherry, apple, urinal cakes, cinnamon, spicy candy. Taste of rich cherry syrup, cinnamon, apple pie, amazing and delicious. Complex but hard to even describe.

Martinus (4569) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2013
Clear red brown colour, slight white rim. Aroma of fruit, apple, cherry, red berries, caramel. Did I mention lots of fruits? Sweet fruity flavour. Sweet fruity finish, lots of apples and cherry.
Sweet, maybe too sweet, but still balanced. I can see the attraction of this, but wouldnt want to drink more than a small taster glass.
