BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Hill Farmstead Brewery
Vermont, United States

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Rotating

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.

Fantastic saison, shared a bottle with my wife over dinner. The funk is beautifully balanced with wheat tartness. Fresher bottle(3-15), will hold one for a little while to see what age does to it...

Absolutely fantastic saison. So bright, lively, and refreshing. The nose is a fair bit more tart than the taste. Perfect balance of tart, funk, and wheat. Super sessionable. Crisp, refreshing, near flawless brew.
