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.

humlelala (1010) - DENMARK - OCT 11, 2014
On tap @ Mikkeller & Friends. Pours a slightly hazy golden with little, white head, some lace and a little film. Lively carbonation. Aroma is wheat, white grape juice and brett. Oily texture, medium body and a lingering, dry and slightly tart finish. Flavour has some juicy sweetness that is however heavily dominated by tart notes. Harmonic enough but not my favourite.
