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 to HF Wine Glass
750 Ml

Thank you FalconA for the goandpickitupformebro

App- When I poured this out to me it was the color of a melted butter. A slight yellow with some haze behind it. The head was about 1/2" and very fizzy. However the head did leave a great cling and sticky lace.

Smell- Right out the gate, this just screams the fields of Belgium in the summer. Grassy, herbal, floral and some good yeasty notes. A well layered saison smell with some clean notes to blend and balance the aromas. A bit of sweet note as well.

Taste- A well flavored saison which backs the aroma quite well. Floral, tart, and a bit of a lemon flavor contributed from the aroma IMO. A small bit of wheat on the back of this one. Very small white pepper note.

Mouth- A light to medium body with a light and fizzy carbonation level. Residual tart and floral notes with that small lemon and pepper on the finish.

Drink- Ill keep this brief. So crushable! Easily couldve done another bottle!!!

poured 750ml bottle into my Duvel.

A - Pours hazy, deep straw yellow with a nice 3 finger white head. Retention is excellent and there is plent of lacing all over the glass.

S - Aromas of citrus, lemon/lime, and floral notes. There is breadiness from the pale malts and some grassy/earthy notes followed by hints of spice and funk.

T - Quite citrusy, with lemons, limes, and oranges. Floral and earthy hops along with grassy notes fill in with a bready or cracker like malt. Just a bit of spice and funk on the finish.

M - Light and crisp with fantastic carbonation. Quite easy to drink on a warm summer's eve.

O - Easily the best Saison that I have had and it has everything I want in one. What a treat and I am lucky to have tried it. Now I want more!

Poured a light and cloudy golden body that has minor head and lace.
A sour and funky aroma that has some spice and citric hops as well.
Crisp, sharp, well-carbonated beer that has a sour edge to it but also some tart fruit tastes as well as touches of tropical fruit and malty sweetness.
Lighter body that is kept smooth from good yeast presence.
Overall, a really good beer that is worth trying.
