Beer added by: kingcrowing on 10-03-2010

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 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.

750ml bottle, split, immediately post-Clara

Pale straw-golden beer, thick frothy white head. Crisp, light and refreshing citrus notes, white pepper, a touch earthy and light spice. Another infinitely drinkable and refreshing saison from HF - I prefered Clara to this during this session, but either one would do the trick on a summer afternoon.

Terrific saison. Aroma is tantalizing with a fruit invitation. Cloudy yellow. Understated carbonation allowing for the palate to appreciate the tanginess. Some lace. Slightly pickled lemon taste and that's a good thing. Very good drinkability. Lots of farmhouse in the end of the bottle.
