Notes/Commercial Description:
Edith (1897-1992) was our grandfather’s sister, and Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to her and her 13 siblings. In her honor, this black saison is crafted from American malted barley, German roasted malts, European hops, our farmhouse yeast, and water from our well. Unfiltered and naturally carbonated, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Edith.

I base my reviews off of the style, and this dark saison is spot on. Everything about this screams Hill Farmstead Arthur with the exceptions of: its black obviously. Roastiness in the nose, lots of lemon here. Its tart on the finish and delightful. I'm not a huge fan of dark beers that are hoppy or tart mainly because they are an oxymoron to me. But Edith is certainly well deserving of my attention. 2014 Vintage reviewed.
