A Note on This Beer
See that picture on the bottle of today’s Fingerprint Oak-Aged Farmhouse Ale? It represents one of the very first steps Kent Falls Brewing ever took towards making beer.
The picture represents the first jar they ever used to collect wild yeast samples on their Connecticut farm. The very beginning of their culture of wild, local yeast — in a way, it was the birth of the brewery.
They used that culture to make their very first beer with wild cultures — Fingerprint. Today, we have some rare bottles of the second-ever batch of this Saison, made with the very same mixed culture. So when you take a sip, you’re tasting a sunny day in the Connecticut countryside way back in 2014!
Open the bottle, and you can practically hear the bees buzzing through notes of honey, rounded out by flavors of ripe melon. You’ll find some woody nuances in there, from 18 months of conditioning in neutral oak, along with gentle tartness and subtle funk from the yeasts. Near the end you’ll taste a touch of sweetness before the brew finishes bone dry.
If you want to taste this bright expression of a true farmhouse brewery, act fast! We only have 10 cases of this beer to go around, and it won’t last long. Get yours, and let it whisk you away to a landscape of rolling, green hills and verdant pastures.
I think we could all use a little of that right about now.
Kent Falls is one of Draft Mag’s Breweries on the Rise AND Thrillist’s Best Brewery in Connecticut!
