Short description of error
Strange artefacts are being created by the denoiser, firefly like bright and dark pixels where there were no such artefacts in the 'Noisy Image'. Looking into the 'Denoising Depth' pass reveals negated depth values around the artefacts. In the supplied .blend it seems to be caused by some weird interaction between the sun lamp and the water material with a black diffuse.
