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.

[Bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o j&m] Pours a hazy pale gold with an average size lasting fizzy white head. Nice aroma of yeast, pepper, citrus and bready malt. Flavour is tart first, then yeasty, herbal and spicy along with a good amount of citrus. Tart spicy finish. Medium bodied. Fantastic stuff.

McWorta (830) - LUXEMBOURG - JAN 3, 2015
Nearly crystal clear at first with a light hue and a frothy white head, until you hit the yeast sediments of the bottle. Basement, barnyard, farm aromas with notes of fresh grass, floral fresh fruity notes with a hunch of flower-honey, pretty complex aroma profile. Tangy, effervescent texture, light bodied and refreshing. Developping a fine sweetness, pronounced acidity with a soft bitterness. Long dry/tart finish.

[6948-20141204] 750mL bottle. Mild orange yeast aroma. Hazy, pale yellow orange body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Soured orange yeast and mild cheese flavour. Medium body has a simple sour base. Average, might be a little old. (7/3/7/3/15) 3.5

Bottle. Pours orange yellow with thick white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is strong saison yeast, peppery notes and clove. Taste is light, tart, pepper, refreshing, palate cleansing. Really nice saison.

Sample from a bottle atCAH. Thanks, Corrie. Nose is acetic acid like white wine vinegar. First sip is beautiful balance of wheat, barley, target and fresh hops. Finish is start and dry. Lovely beer .

MotherBrother (777) - Aalborg, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2014
Pour hazy crisp yellow, with a small foamy white head. Aroma of citrus, slight white pepper, some soapy mineral stuff, honey. Taste is a little tart, with a faint bitterness. Average bodied, with a fizzy carb.

Prufrockstar (1360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Thanks to Ryan for sharing this at my place a few months back. From notes. Appearance: Hazy straw-gold, frothy white head, good lacing. Aroma: lemon, mineral, pepper; armpit. Taste: lightly sweet honey, otherwise slightly tart, slightly funky, dry mineral finish. Palate: Medium- body (a little thin); slick texture. Long pear juice lingers with lightly bitter finish. Overall: continuing the theme of "solid, nice saisons that don’t change my world the way the Vermont deity is supposed to." Good, better than most, but doesn’t approach the best I’ve had from say, Fantome (though heads and shoulders above the worst Fantomes, too, so obviously not a good comparison). Still, quite good.
