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.

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 (3776) - 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.

thepatrickman (599) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 18, 2015
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.

Frank (3842) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 10, 2015
Great saison. Itís light, spicy and fruity, easily drinkable but very flavorful with a complex brett character. Not a surprise if you are familiar with the brewer but thatís not always a bad thing.
