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.

bob_w (373) - new york, New York, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Hethan at City Swiggers cracked open a bottle to share. A soft cloudy dull yellow color. The aroma offers a hint of honey, with a sour note. Hops act in concert with complex yeast notes, malt, and faint honey. Quite tart, nice sourness. Refreshing, delicious. Sourness is in balance and not over aggressive. Clean finish. Very fine beer.

Mr_Abner (200) - Michigan, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Fresh bottle. Pours a beautiful straw color with a two finger, white head. Smells of HF yeast, a hint of honey. Lightly tart with a touch of sweetness from the honey. Fresh and bright. Absolutely fantastic.

Bule (1281) - California, USA - MAY 14, 2015
750ml bottle pours a golden color with a lot of frothy head. Nice saison flavors at the start but some harsher flavors come through at the end.

marcus (7682) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 3, 2015
From bottle at Fredfest. Pours murky golden with a thin but attractive white head and a fruit and ueast aroma. There is a smooth and mellow pale malt and fermented honey flavor with a carbonated slightly sour finish.

Bière brassée à la mémoire d’Anna; je serais plus qu’honoré que l’on brasse un jour une telle bière en mon honneur. Au simple transfert de la bouteille au verre, on sait immédiatement que l’on a affaire à une bière brassée avec savoir: celle-ci annonce un corps complexe où d’innombrables particules en suspension colorent le liquide trouble, doré et laiteux. La tête est absolument sublime de beauté: onctueuse, éclatante comme le soleil de midi, généreuse... monarchique! Levures sauvages au nez qui rappellent un peu la souche brettanomyce mais mieux balancées et beaucoup plus douces qu’une bière typique brett. Ici le nez est délicat, sauvage, aérien. En bouche le côté levuré sauvage est bien moins présent qu’au nez. C’est délicat, soyeux et les saveurs de jeunes céréales et de citron se mêlent parfaitement au miel de trèfle qui ajoute une magnifique profondeur tant au niveau des saveurs que de la texture générale. Anna, je t’aime.
