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.

RasmusOtt (1257) - Aalborg, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2014
Pours hazy golden yellow with a solid white head. Aroma of nice sweet fruity esters, elderflower, some sour citrus fruits, green apples funky barnyard, wheat and just nice rural farmhouse notes. Taste is quite tart and fresh and has notes of green apples, wheat, lemon juice, hay/straw, weak funky barnyard notes and maybe just a tad of the honey as well. really nice and delicate saison!

Vestergaard (455) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2014
Bottle, 75 cl. Pours clear yellow at first, but the sediment makes it appear hazy. Fairly light. Head is big, frothy and white, and looks like whipped egg white. Aroma has lots of fresh fruits, slight elderflower, bitter, grainy malts, fruity esters, slight funk and some bitter hops. Taste is more sour, but has lots of bitter hops, fruity esters, grainy funk, lemon juice and unripe grape fruit. Some really unripe apples as well. Again some elderflower. Tart, sour and bitter. High carb and really crisp body. Really a refreshing fellah!

jahshuwuh (432) - USA - NOV 29, 2014
Yeast bomb, hazy milky yellowish tan color. Smells of funky, vinegar, horse blanket, honey, caramel. Taste is a tart Brett like character, horse blanket, a tad bit of flowery hop in the after taste. Well done brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kambei70 (681) - - NOV 29, 2014
2013 bottle. It's a nice, hazy golden straw color with a small white head. Aroma is earthy and slightly musty with some lemon. The taste has a little tartness at the front that goes into the earthy, barnyard funk. I get lemon and lime towards the end with a hint of bitterness that is barely noticeable. Ends with a pleasant, cheesy taste that settles into the tongue. Detected a bit of sweetness but couldn't say it was honey. Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated and dry. Wonderful saison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jeremyh70 (781) - Missouri, USA - NOV 27, 2014
2013 bottle. Pours a murky pale yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a spotty film. Aroma is earthy and funky with some lemon and some cheesey scent. Taste is tart, earthy and funky with a briney character and some faint light fruit. Finishes dry with some wood. Mouthfeel is somewhat slick with a light body and high carbonation. Very complex and easy drinking with delicious flavor.

Fritz123 (1123) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle shared by Jeff at the Dolphins tailgate. (Fun times...) Snifter pour is golden yellow with haze and a moderate head. Aroma is delightful with honey, pine, wet fresh cut grass, white pepper, and light fruits. The taste is delightful with honey, light slight tart fruits, white pepper, hint of herbs, hint of wild yeasts, and a dry finish. Well carbed, very light body. Just another great HF beer.
