Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: MasterSki on 01-25-2013

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.

A: Thick, muddy brown with a huge, fluffy, pillowy, light brown head that settles into dense mounds and craters of foam.

S: Roasty funk with plenty of yeast and farm but also a sweet, malty component.

T: I've been sitting with this for a long time. Very warm. Delicious sour notes come from this along with dark fruits and a slight roasted character. The balance between all the qualities about this beer make a farmhouse ale with dark, roasted malt and a slightly different yeast strain come together for a unique experience. So damn delicious.

M: Seriously awesome body with the right carbonation. HF doesn't ever miss here. Super smooth with massive flavor.

O: Haven't had too many Dark/Black Saisons and I must say, an interesting and unique style. I'm sure they'll become more common as Black IPA's did. HF brewed an amazingly tasty beer with the character you would expect from this twist on a style Shaun knows so well.
