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.

Pale golden yellow fills the glass with a frothy bright white head resting nicely on top. An effervescent body makes for quite the welcoming site.

Lemony citrus notes greet the nose. Peppery yeast and slight honey sweetness round it all out.

Tart and fruity upfront but nicely balanced by the peppery spice notes. Grassy hop notes make a brief appearance as well. All of these flavors a carried well by a nice medium-body bubbly and crisp mouthfeel.

Overall, this may be my favorite of the HF saisons I've had so far, but I'd like to revisit Anna. About as simple and straightforward as a saison can be yet so damn tasty.

Sampled at VT Brewfest.

A-Poured a slightly hazy yellow color. Hard to describe anything past that.

S-Clearly picking up some tartness here. Organic hard cider, lemons, funk and some hay. Whiffs of flower and grass.

T-Pretty tart but there is more going on beyond the tartness. It really reminds me of a well made hard cider without a ton of added sugar. Tart lemons and apples. Zesty yeast-funk. Pale malt. Grass and barn. Light pepper in the finish.

M-Refreshingly light and crisply tart. Very drinkable; too bad the line is a mile long, I would have returned to this one.

O-Haven't had nearly as much experience with Hill Farmstead's collection of Saisons. Guess I need to start.

Serving type: on-tap
