Hill Farmstead Brewery
Vermont, United States

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

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.

Golden with a dusting of fine bubbled carbonation, a light haze and topped with 2.5 fingers of whitish head.

Smells of sour funk, old wooden cellars, a light, fruity cocktail of pears and peaches, and clean, floral notes like white cherry blossoms.

Tastes sour with a flow of grains, a hint of apple cider, very lambic and gueuze like reminding me of Cantillon. Oaky, earthy, dusty funky cellar, with hints of pear and floral notes.

Medium body, bone dry and acidic, with a light buoyancy, and light carbonation.

I got this in Vermont at Hill Farmstead Brewery almost two years ago. I brought this to Thailand, where I am drinking it in my home in Chiang Mai, June 16th, 2018. Cracked it open after a long, moving day sale day.

Like Anna, a bright golden farmhouse style brew with subtlety. Unlike Anna, sourness prevails without honey to mitigate. So Arthur is a more straightforward saison--a beautiful example if the style.

750 bottle dated 8/18/17 purchased at the brewery on 4/18/18 and consumed on 4/23/18. Carbon copy of Florence with slightly more freshness (only 8 months old as opposed to 10). Too old or this isn't the style for us. One and done.
