Description 

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 flavor discovered by accident in a sour ale! Cheers to the unexpected.

This brilliantly clear ruby-red beer, is assertively fruit-forward with strawberry, cherry, and apple dominating both the aroma and the flavor. Behind the fruit complexity are light notes of both toffee and root beer. It has a light-medium body, low carbonation, and a clean, lactic sourness that balances the fruity sweetness with a faint hop bitterness taking the edge off an otherwise sweet finish. Serve this beer in a champagne saucer to elevate a movie date night at home, especially when paired with a fresh strawberry parfait for dessert.
