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.

Poured a light and cloudy golden body that has minor head and lace.
A sour and funky aroma that has some spice and citric hops as well.
Crisp, sharp, well-carbonated beer that has a sour edge to it but also some tart fruit tastes as well as touches of tropical fruit and malty sweetness.
Lighter body that is kept smooth from good yeast presence.
Overall, a really good beer that is worth trying.

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.
