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.

Thanks to pete for this HF bottle!

750ml bottle sealed with pressure cap. bottled on date of 01/2014.

poured into HF wine stem.

Appearance: Translucent and glowing yellow bodied beer with massive and fluffy bone white head. The head has a lot of staying power and leave a heavy yet spotty lacing.

Smell: Grainy and bready malts. Fruity and yeasty aroma. Smells like it would have a light tartness. Hint of white pepper.

Taste: Mild tartness in the form of lemon and granny smith green apples. A light bitterness that is floral, grassy, and earthy. Bready and grainy malts with a hint of wet hay funk. Hint of pepper and orange zest. Getting some pears too. I might be detecting some brett notes in this beer as well. As the beer warms up the tartness, funk, and white pepper become very prominent, but remain in balance during the entire drink.

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with low almost moderate carbonation levels. Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel too it. Carbonation is creamy. This beer is so drinkable as well.

Overall: Hill Farmstead saisons are fricking amazing. This one is no exception. The tartness really adds depth to the flavor profile of this beer. I could drink this beer by the gallons and never get bored. This beer is very much reminiscent of Dupont Saison.

750 mL bottle poured into jester king tulip.

Extremely pale pour resolves into a buttercup haze with a pillow of white foam.

Smell is grassy meadow, lemon peel.

Tart lemon and hay. Light, creamy.

Beautiful carb, lightly drying and refreshing. I could drink this all day.

The aroma has orange peel, pepper, and white grape.

The flavor follows with white grape, citrus peel, pepper spiciness from the yeast with lots of drying. There's a medium bready malt in the middle. There's a tart lemon note even on the finish as the beer dries aggressively.

An absolutely delicious beer that is complex as barrel aged or soured beers in the style.
