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.

This poured a light yellow yet glowing complexion with a foamy and frothy head.

The aromas were strong but perhaps not my favorites. I love the Apple, pear, banana and honeysuckle but it was mixed with anise and clove. A slight sweet bubblegum was mixed throughout.

The flavors were strong with a lemony tartness, Granny Smith Apple, pear and a peppery finish. The overall flavor has a Chardonnay like taste and at times reminds me of cider.

I thought the feel was a tad thin but very light and tart.

As with all Hill Farmstead this beer gives the feel of craftsmanship and has an intense diversity.
