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.

Has all the things you'd want in a saison. Lemon and citrus notes that are perfect on a hot summer day. Tastes like it has a bit of funky sour going on too. Highly recommended.

Pours a deep gold with a thick quickly dissipating head. Good lacing. Faint pepper and biscuit on the nose with some dry white wine notes following. Dry on the tongue, very spicy with lots of pepper. Dry finish as well. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a supremely well crafted and easy drinking farmhouse ale.
