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.

Big thanks to tom10101, for sending me a bottle of this golden elixir. Cloudy yellow pour, aroma is loaded with citrus smelly feet funk, dry white grapes, grass, wow. Taste is bursting with tart citrus refreshing flavour, with a dry tart refreshing finish, this is so good.

Bottle - Wood, funky citrus and hay. Lots of weird funk. Hazy pale gold with a rich white head. Very bright notes, hay, lemon, herbal and a tartness balanced by a bitterness. Well done.

Side by side tasting of bottled Anna, Florence & Arthur at BBF’14. Props to Mike Morse. Thank you! ANNA: plays on the light floral notes, but especially on the spicy and yeast compared to the other two. 4.1/5 FLORENCE: more zesty lemon with a drier body and a great dry finish, a real thirst quencher. 3.8/5 ARTHUR: fruitiest of the 3, with nice balanced pineapple notes and a tad of the yeasty saison chareter. 4.1/5

Light bodied, lightly tart on the palate , very well balanced with a lightly dry and spicy finish. Taste is lemon zest, nectarine, tangerine, peach, sour candy.

"a fragrant beer...lots of hay/grass/barnyard, some light fruits and spices, and a decent amount of hops, all tied together with a ever so slight funk. Really nice saison from VT, and a great summer beer!"

Bottle from cpetrone-thanks, Chris! Wanted to try this for some time now. Pretty, clear deep straw color. Finger thick slow fading head. Nose of light lemon, limestone minerality, and great farmhouse character. Cracker, lemon pith, lightly tart and mineral finish. Don’t get any honey specifically.

BIG thanks to my brother in law for surprising me with this one! It pours a hazy light yellow color with a nice creamy white head. The aroma is tart and funky with strong lactic lemony tangerine, grapefruit and cereal grains. The flavor has more spiciness and mild tartness with tangerine, lemons, stone fruit, creamy lacto, and faint phenolic funk in the aftertaste. High carbonation. Mouthwateringly dry and tart in the finish. Not all that complex, but light bodied, refreshing and super tasty. Killer.
