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!

19/I/13 - 1Pt. 9Fl. Oz. bottle @ RBBWG 2013 - BB: n/a (2013-36) Thanks to Travlr for sharing the bottle!

Clear ruby red to copper red beer, small irregular light pink head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: bit sour, cherry candy, cherry syrup, sugary. MF: little carbon, medium body. Taste: very fruity, sweet, cherry candy, syrup, bitter touch. Aftertaste: sugary, cherry candy, syrup, a lemony sour touch, more candy sweetness. Not much different from all the sweet Belgian "kriek" ales...

Pours red with a tan head that disappears quickly. Aroma is strong apple and cherry. Taste is tart and fruity but with a significant amount of sweetness, a little much for my taste. It has a medium body with and is a bit fizzy. Overall this is a great beer, wouldnt mind if it was a bit drier but if I had the opportunity in Chicago to purchase more of this I definitely would be.

Bottle shared with northropfrye. Luxurious cherry aroma. I could taste apples and cranberries. Beautifully sweet and tart, balanced exactly the way I like it. This beers a real treat.

Red maroon body with offwhite head, fades. Vibrant tart aroma of sweet cherries, some breadiness. Taste is also rather sour with nice sweet fruit. The one criticism I have of these New Glarus fruit beers, and it seems pretty consistent, is that the flavour fades very quickly. I would rate this higher if the flavour lingered a little bit, but it just doesnt. Too bad. Still very good, though.

Bottle generously shared by yourefragile. Pour yields a reddish-brown colored brew with a short fizzy head that recedes somewhat quickly. The nose carries a strong bit of cherry and cranberry as well as underlying earthiness. Some tartness coming through, as well as fruit skin. Flavor is moderately tart but has far too much underlying sweetness. Body is medium and appropriate, but theres too much residual sweetness coming through. Pretty nice for a fruit beer, but pales in comparison to Belgian Red and, to a lesser degree, Raspberry Tart.

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.

radagast83 (7906) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2013
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.
