Notes/Commercial Description:
Arthur (1922-2005) was our grandfather’s youngest brother; Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to him and his 13 siblings. In his honor, this Saison is crafted from American malted barley, American and European hops, our distinctive farmhouse yeast and water from our well. Unfiltered and naturally carbonated, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Arthur.

Pours a very pale yellow with a huge white head that lingers forever. Quite cloudy in body. Nose is belgian yeast, some lemons, and other citric flavors. The taste is very tart which I didn't see coming from the nose. Funky lemons, some hay, low acidity, and belgian yeast come through on the tongue. The finish is very crisp and clean with a very low lingering tartness.

This would be a great warm weather beer to sit by the pool and crush all day long.
