BEER INFO

Hill Farmstead Brewery
Vermont, United States

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Art is the wine barrel fermented and aged version of Arthur (1922-2005), our grandfather's youngest brother as well as the name of our rustic farmstead ale. In honor of Arthur, we mindfully blend his namesake beer from French oak wine barrels that have been aged and conditioned for between 1 and 3 years. This is the standard that reflects, redefines and guides the progressive vision for Hill Farmstead.

A: Gold, white head that sticks around forever. Hazy, great looking beer. S: Funky...so much funk. That Hill yeast smell, some oak and lemon. T: Lemon, funk, oak, hay, basement...all I want in a beer. M: Carb is right where it needs to be. Keeps it soft and finishes dry, making you want more. O: This beer is exactly what I wanted it to be and more. It's oaky, funky and perfect. Way to go Shaun, you never disappoint

Purchased one year ago at the source. Pours a cloudy yellow. Aroma is super funky. Taste largely follows. As it warms it becomes much better. Not sure I get much wine barrel in this.
