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 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.

Hazy blond with small white head. Tart floral and hoppy aroma. Tart and flora, a bit too sweet though. A bit more time would do it good.

@Gyllenbock 14-11-17: stor tydlig blommig och frisk doft. Smaken är fyllig och komplex med toner av grape, vindruvor och syrlig citron. Fint balanserad eftersmak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Dogbrick (8910) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Sample at the 2014 Infected Chimipalooza on 11/01/2014. Hazy pale golden color with a medium white head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of citrus, herbal yeast and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of floral yeast, citrus and grassy hops. The finish is floral and fruity with a lingering citrus aftertaste. Good beer all around.

Sample at first sunday. Solid, delicate light fruit and good yeast. Smooth malt and mouth texture overall. Little bit of wild funky cheese on the finish. Some pepper there as well. Long drawn out and full bodied mouth feel.
