Notes: As we more fully embrace the characteristics of each fruit that we source, we have somewhat reimagined our fruited Farmstead® ales program. To more prominently represent those fruits and the variation of each harvest season, we let the fruit and our learning from past experiences guide us in selecting from our range of barrel-aged Farmstead® ales—sometimes this will be a single base beer, other times it may be a blend of different barrels—all with the goal of best expressing the fruit’s unique aspects. In this instance, we have blended Montmorency cherries from Allenholm in South Hero, Vt., and red raspberries from Elmore Roots in Wolcott, Vt., with a number of sympathetic barrels of Farmstead® ale to provide a thoughtful representation of the fruits in season.

This one pours a dark reddish color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like tart seedy cherry, sweet juicy raspberry, red wine, and lemon.

Flora Cherry was always one of my least favorite fruited HF beers, but Flora Raspberry was alwas one of my favorites, so expectations were hopeful for this one. It's pretty solid - the vinegary and acidic characteristics that I sometimes get from cherry sours aren't there - they're overtaken by sweet, jammy, and juicy raspberry, and a nice lemony funk and acidity, with a little bit of wine barrel.

This is light bodied, clean, lightly acidic, with the impression of liquid raspberry pie.

This is really nice stuff, luckily the raspberry was the star here, with a supporting role from the cherry.

375 mL bottle. Murky red. Smells of cherry pie cherries, light raspberry, a hint of tomato, and some bandaid. Tastes of less dynamic cherry, but not as much tomato. Cherry and raspberry in equal quantities. Bandaid comes back in the back end. Medium light. It's ok, but it's got some problems.

Looks lush and red. Smells of cherry, and berry. Taste like cherry tart. Nice blend overall of cherry and raspberry.
