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.

On tap at Beachwood Brewing in Long Beach, CA.

Mind blown. Mind on the wall like Earnest Hemingway. All those grassy, peppery saison flavors, but with a dollop of the most glorious citrus possible. Am I tripping? No, I'm alive.

- 2014 vintage
- Off tap @ Beachwood (LBC) on 7-Nov-14
- 10 oz. pour into a wheat beer glass

Tasted against Anna, Florence, and Brother Soigne. Of the four, I ranked this one 3rd.

Not tart like Anna and Florence, which I actually don't mind as it's a Saison. A bit one dimensional. Still a fantastic saison.
