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 version of Arthur was aged for many months in our puncheons--not quite Arthur, not quite Art, but magical all the same. Unfiltered and naturally carbonated, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Arthur.

Decent beer - a bit tart for my own personal taste.

Bottled on 6/25/2019 (batch 3); consumed on 5/13/2022

Pours a clear, deep straw-gold body capped with over two fingers of fluffy, white foam; good head retention leaves a thick layer of craggy cap, a moderate, frothy collar, and a generous spatter of webby/spotty lacing scattered across the walls of the glass.

Aroma opens to tinges of attic/old wood accented with a lemony funk as distant shades of horsey texture trends cheesy over time; fresher oak grazes the back end against a light citric entanglement meeting minerality on the close.

Taste shows a brief lemony undercurrent preceding waves of fresh, earthen oak; white wine sparks through with a cheesy heft over the mid-palate, while a clean minerality shines floral funk and a lacto twang on the finish.

Mouthfeel offers a lighter body with carbonation on the higher end of medium easing to a glossy funk delicately taut, and with a timid acidity over the mid-palate engaging a bright tartness on the back end; the finish highlights a semi-wet trend with intermittent pangs of resounding dryness.

A quaint display of balanced, bright funk strewn with a detailed overlay of rustic oak; another well-pronounced yet clean farmhouse ale from Hill Farmstead.
