COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Anna (1902 - ? ) was our grandfatherís 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 14ļ P Ingredients: Pale Malt, American and European Hops, Vermont Wildflower Honey, Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

Lucky to live in northern California. In Sunnyvale, Olsonís Cherries grows Blenheim apricots that are nearly dry-farmed, as are the Crane melons grown by the Crane Melon Barn in the black soil of Santa Rosa. Over on the coast in Davenport, Swanton Berry Farm is still growing Chandler strawberries. And Andy Mariani in Morgan Hill is the only orchardist in America I know of who grows the original "un-improved" green gage (reine claude) plum. So I have serious doubts about the deliciousness of the fruit varietals that are hardy enough to grow in the chilly climes of Vermont. Not so Vermont honey. This BiŤre de Miel rightly deserves the myriad accolades it has received. Had it at the RateBeer Best Festival.

Beer5000 (5469) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2016
750 ml bottle. Clear pale golden to yellow body with a small white head. Delicate aroma of citric fruit, mild lemon, grapes and spicy yeast. Flavor is refreshing fruity, mild lemon, spicy yeast, mild bitterness, light soft malt, hint of wood, quite dry and just a faint hint of funky sourness. Perfect balanced body and long lasting nice aftertaste. Super complex in a rather subtle way, incredible balanced all the way and very tasty and moorsih. Donít realty find any honey flavor here but I donít miss it either.

Garrold (3333) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle. Willeyís Store, Greensboro, VT. Hazy, green tinged, straw colour. Skim of shape making, white head. Nose has lemon juice. Some damp grain. Some lemongrass. Hints of yeasty funk. Toasty malts. Faint note of honey, but maybe because Iím looking for it. Taste is crisp, lightly tart, and light bitter. Palate is crisp and dry. The tart dryness turns lightly sour on the finish. The honey element has mostly passed me by, although Iím happy with that. More of the crisp, lemon tartness on the finish.

Bottle at home. Excellent looking Saison with a slightly cloudy appearance from the wheat malt and a big, pillowy white head. The flavor is brett funk and a noticeable sourness from the yeast, and it has a reasonably full mouthfeel from the honey. Another fantastic saison from Hill Farmstead.
