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.

Bottle pour at the Ithaca Luminous release.

Pours a murky, rusty looking yellow, with a 2 inch off white head, and lots of sticky lacing.

Smells like peach, apricot, orange, some mild to moderate funky barnyard type stuff.

The taste is pretty similar. Just the right amount of tartness here, some hay, some musty citrus flavors, some Belgian yeast, some Brett-like flavors, quite zesty, funky, and great.

Light to medium bodied, crisp, juicy mouthfeel, very drinkable, no alcohol presence.

Awesome saison. Might be the best I've ever had.
