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 14ş P Ingredients: Pale Malt, American and European Hops, Vermont Wildflower Honey, Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

jamesewelch (189) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 14, 2013
From bottle from brewery. Aroma is yeasty, floral, and a little sweet. Pours a hazy golden color with off white head. Tastes very tart with pepper, spice, and some funkiness. Very dry aftertaste. High carbonation. Light body with a dry finish.

DuffMan (7798) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 29, 2015
Bottle, shared with Parksy and others, sent by JulienHuxley-- thanks! A near gusher, this is one lively pour! Hazy golden body with a generous white head that laces thickly as it recedes. Lovely tart, funky profile, with rustic yeast character and gentle honey undertones without heaviness or sweetness. Tart, dry, and exceptionally drinkable despite its complexity. Fantastic. Thanks again Julien!

demannu (175) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Aroma is funky. Hazy straw color with white fluffy head. Crisp clean palate. Taste is overall balanced with sour and tart notes. Lemon and pale malts are most dominant. Nothing is over done leaving this balanced and drinkable.

NikkTwist (1962) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2015
Draft at Eulogy. Very hazy straw pour with a good tuft of frothy white foam. Fair amount of lace. Complex honey sour. Blonde caramel malts. Bright amber fruits. Apricots. Orange passionfruit. Clementines. Floral and herbal elements. Chamomile. Lemon thyme. Dried lemon and orange peels. Just a slight bit of hop bite and Brett funk. Full honey citrus sour. Not quite traditional but a really tremendous Farmhouse!

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 (153) - 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 (1166) - 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 (7440) - 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.
