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.

Sampled at VT Brewfest.

A-Poured a slightly hazy yellow color. Hard to describe anything past that.

S-Clearly picking up some tartness here. Organic hard cider, lemons, funk and some hay. Whiffs of flower and grass.

T-Pretty tart but there is more going on beyond the tartness. It really reminds me of a well made hard cider without a ton of added sugar. Tart lemons and apples. Zesty yeast-funk. Pale malt. Grass and barn. Light pepper in the finish.

M-Refreshingly light and crisply tart. Very drinkable; too bad the line is a mile long, I would have returned to this one.

O-Haven't had nearly as much experience with Hill Farmstead's collection of Saisons. Guess I need to start.

Great beer from Hill Farmstead.

Pours a nice golden yellow beer. Normal head forms at the top. Smell of brett and funk on the nose. Taste is mildly sour, perfect for a saison. Some Belgian yeast is present, but very well balanced beer. Not hoppy or bitter whatsoever. Body is light.

Tasted this at Brewfest 2014. A nice farmhouse ale that I wouldnt mind trying again as beerfest only gives you 4 oz glasses and the lines are kind of long at the Hill Farmstead brewery section. Very bitter beer that had a nice clarity to its look and the taste was unusual. Would highly recommend.
