Notes: Next in our series of fruit harvest selections, we paired a blend of our Farmstead® ales—all of which rested in oak for more than a year—with Balaton® cherries from nearby Burtt’s Orchard in Cabot, Vt. This harmonized blend rested in the bottle for over a year, achieving its balance of complex acidity and seasonal fruit representation.⁣

Top 3 of the Hill Harvest series. Very nice expression of cherry.

375 mL bottle. Pours red. Smells earthy, rubbery, with cherry and tomato. Tastes of cherry up front, but turns tomato-y quickly. Also rubbery and bitter. Rough.
