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 poured in to HF stemmed tulip.

A - Translucent bright yellow with two big fingers of thick, foamy white head that slowly reduced to a half finger.

S - Funk notes at first, then sweet breadiness, spice (pepper) and lemon zest.

T - Tart and funky up front with a big peppery spice profile. Sweet bready/honey malt profile enters mid-palate with bitter lemon zest in the finish.

M - Light body; slightly creamy. Dry. Moderate carbonation.

Poured from a bottle into a 3FFF teku
first off for some reason when i opened the bottle it foamed up and poured over the top
let it sit for a few and then poured slow and it was still extremely huge head on it
even after drinking the first glass the second pour was massive head
now to the good stuff
the smell is that nice farmhouse funk
taste is similar i would say little dry
mouthfeel is nice i like the carbonation level makes it an easy drinker
farm funk in this is so good
would get again for sure i liked this much better than ANNA

On tap at the Farmhouse Tap. Served in a wine glass.

Appearance - Bright orange yellow. Nice white head. Nice lacing. Good rention.

Smell - Lemony. Slightly yeasty. Wine notes. Pale malt.

Taste - Very crisp. White wine all over. Pale malt. Acidic. Oaky in the finish. Mostly white wine and the saison is lost.

Mouthfeel - Light and crisp. Nice tang. A little bit yeasty.

Overall - The saison isn't the most complex, but wine flavors really round it out very nicely.
