Serendipitous (adjective): occurring or discovered by chance in a happy or beneficial way.
Example sentence: It was serendipitous that I was tasting Finger Trap Hazy Pale Ale on the same evening we were having Vietnamese vermicelli bowls for dinner, as the flavours complemented each other wonderfully.
The smell of orange juice and sweet mango tied in with the aromatic chopped mint; the less sweet – but no less juicy – tropical flavours balanced out the vinegary dressing; the citrusy tang cut through the crispy and sticky and oily fried bits; the creaminess from the flaked wheat and oats made a mouthful of vermicelli noodles feel even fuller. And the Sabro hops, which held off until the beer started warm up, snuck in their coconut cream like a sweet dessert to wrap up the Vietnamese feast.
What were the chances of that?
