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.

Bottle from Batch 2 courtesy of Todd.

A: The pour is a somewhat minimally hazed golden-orange color with a large white head.

S: There is a mild tartness on the nose, which I find pleasant. Definitely some apples along with a pronounced honeydew melon aroma and a bit of celery. Earth and spice notes as well as some wood and cracker malts.

T: The flavor has a mild sweet of bread and cracker malts. There is definitely some grass, celery, and earthy mushroom. A fair amount of fruits, especially green melon, lemon zest, and apples.

M: Medium in body with a medium to high carbonation.

O: Lots of complexity to this one and I thought it was pretty nice to drink.
