COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Anna (1902 - ? ) was our grandfather’s sister; Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to her and her 13 siblings. In her honor, this Honey Saison is crafted from American malted barley, European and American hops, Vermont wildflower honey, our distinctive farmhouse yeast and water from our well. Unfiltered and naturally carbonated, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Anna. 6.5% ALC/VOL 14º P Ingredients: Pale Malt, American and European Hops, Vermont Wildflower Honey, Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

cfrancis (2700) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2015
Pours light yellow with a big pillow white top. Aroma is sweet honey, floral and dry yeast. Taste is dry on the palate, slight sweetness from the honey, nice yeast that creates a bit of farmy age. Thanks to Deuce for this.

Bulk_Carrier (2716) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Bottle dated "2015 05 14" This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy burnt golden yellow to orange color with slim finger’s worth of foamy white head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds leaving some light rings of lacing. The smell starts off with an eloquent sweet floral setting leading into a smooth sweet honey and a light underscore of spice to balance. Light citrus also makes a light presence. The taste was mainly sweet through the floral and the honey adding a bit of grassiness underneath. There’s no aftertaste but a light sweet floral finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly smooth. Light sweet floral tones hit my tongue in a refreshing manner. Overall, what a wonderful saison that I would love to have again.

Sarlacc83 (1366) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle, sent by Adam. Thanks! A: Cloudy gold with a huge white head. Just enormous. N: Lemon rind, funk, peppercorn, straw, some husk, earth, coriander, and leaves. There’s also no mistaking the HF yeast in this one, even if I can’t always identify its complexities, T: Tart. sweet. and a touch bitter. M: Foamy carbonation, light body, no alcohol. O: A pretty nice saison. Easy drinking all around with the complexity to match.
