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.

Art b5 served from 375ml at the brewery.

Dregs separated by server. Pours a clear, straw body with a one finger white head. That sticks around for the duration of the drink. Spotty lacing.

On the nose is Funky hay, white wine, apple juice, lightly tart citrus, yeasty, barnyard, champagne-like.

On the tongue are delicate notes of sour apple, citrus, mingled with oak and champagne, lightly funky with a distinctive hill Farmstead barnyard taste. Dry finish, lightly carbonated. Very easy to drink.

Art lived up to the hype for me. This is so complex yet very balanced and delicate. More champagne-like than flora.

Pours gold - a slight bit of haze with a puffy 3 finger head that leaves big rings of lace. Aromas of earthy brett, lemon, white grape, hay and oak - very complex. Taste is spot on - light Oaked malts balanced with a hint of dry white grape, green apple, lemongrass, white pepper and very slight bitterness and sourness - VERY easy to drink.

How does a Farmhouse Ale get any better than this. Beautiful brilliant golden color with a foamy fluffy sticky head that lasts and sticks to the glass with a dense honeycomb lacing. The wine and oak tones are well balanced with the base ale. Wonderful nose, smooth mouth feel, must try!
