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.

Thanks Huhzubendah for sharing the bottle! Poured into a snifter showing well filtered neon yellow with 1.5 fingers of clean white foam. The nose shows sharp tart notes with notes of brett in between. The palate fully carbonated and light bodied. Light maltiness with a medium tartness throughout. A bit one dimensional.

GIJOE (1082) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JUN 25, 2016
Pours bright yellow with a foamy white head that slowly reduces to a ring and film. Sparse, delicate lacing. Nose is tart with some barnyard funk; notes of straw and grass; grapefruity citrus. Taste is mildly sour and slightly dry on the finish. Light body, fine carbonation. Very nice brew!

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2016
Bottle, 75cl. It pours an almost clear body and a golden color, with a dense, white finger-thick head. It’s very fruity on the nose, with some peppery saison yeast, a light funky hint, some flower I guess is from the honey and then some more fruityness. Some bitterness in the mouth, with hints of oranges. Peppery yeast, flower notes and a wee malty touch in the flavor. It’s dry and pleasantly carbonated, with a lasting finish of tropical fruits, peppery yeast hints, bitterness, flower and honey. Nothing but delicious. 160102

Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2016
Draught at WarPigs Brewpub, Hill Farmstead Day. Patchy head, hazy golden-orange body, spotty lacing. Spiced fruity aroma with matching tartness. Gooseberry and citrus to the taste profile followed by citrus peels towards a lingering finish. Fine bodied. Pleasant and refreshing (shared with KimJohansen and Skinnyviking, Copenhagen 12.05.2016).
