Rose Hill Farm was established in 1812 on land Peter Fraleigh purchased in 1798. In 2001, six generations later, Rose Hill Farm was honored by the New York State Agricultural Society as the only fruit orchard among the 10 Bicentennial Family Farms. Owners Dave and Karen Fraleigh transitioned the farm from a wholesale apple orchard to a Pick Your Own farm, over twenty years ago, expanding the crops to include cherries, blueberries, peaches, raspberries, pumpkins, and winter squash in addition to apples. In 1998, the Fraleighs sold their development rights to the Scenic Hudson Land Trust, which through a conservation easement protects farmland and helps preserve the Hudson Valley’s world-renowned landscape. In November 2015, Bruce and Holly Brittain and Chris Belardi purchased Rose Hill Farm, with the shared vision to grow the Pick Your Own orchard, while remaining stewards of the land. “Pomme Cerise” is a delightful cherry and apple co-fermentation from all New York state fruit. Sour beer lovers will love this, as it evokes a Belgian lambic ale in style (the inspiration for this release, in fact!) Clean and bright, it is the result of wild yeast fermentation, bottled without fining, filtration, or additional sulfites, it gets its sparkle from cryo-conditioning, where concentrated, frozen apple juice was added to spark a second fermentation in the bottle. Snappy and refreshing, it also mingles with air in the glass in an impressively sophisticated manner, evolving in character over the course of a meal.
