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.

750, capped, at Mikkeller. To say this beer is highly carbonated would be to grossly underestimate the ambitions of the carbon dioxide therein. Popping the cap was a big fat jailbreak for this beer. All three bartenders got at least a little tiny bit splashed. Shot everywhere. Big white geyser. Striking. Hazy medium gold in the glass, fluffy eggy head settles quickly to not much, as expected, and the carb was a little on the light side, as expected--too much was lost. Not to the great detriment of the beer by any means, but softened and mellowed it a little overmuch. Big honey nose, showing a little bit of minty herbaceousness and caramel as well, along with some sweet floral notes. That yeast and that honey sugar been makin bebbehs in the bottleses. Creamy medium body, understated carb. Honey, toasty malt, floral bits, and grassiness on the mid palate, with a minty, honeyed finish.

750mL. Pours a hazy bright yellow with a moderate white head. Aroma is honey, flowers, yeast, grass, and funk. Taste is tart and tangy lemon, peach, yeast, wheat, light honey, and little bit of spice. Some grassy hops in the tart finish. Light body. Fizzy, medium carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. Mouthfeel is crisp rather than creamy and no where near as strong without the yeast sediment.

LouisP (215) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 26, 2016
Une bière blonde, trouble, aux teints dorés avec peu de carbonatation. Au nez, beaucoup de levures sauvages, une présence sucrée, et la fameuse levure saison spécialité de HF. En bouche, ce qui me frappe au départ, c’est l’espèce de goût de pastille contre la toux au miel. La finale est sèche, avec peu d’amertume. Un petit peu des levures sauvages sont remarquables, mais en arrière-plan. Au final c’est assez équilibré, mais sans être grandiose.

Thanks Huhzubendah for sharing the bottle! Poured into a snifter showing well filtered neon yellow with 1.5 fingers of clean white foam. The nose shows sharp tart notes with notes of brett in between. The palate fully carbonated and light bodied. Light maltiness with a medium tartness throughout. A bit one dimensional.

750 ml bottle from trade with bytemesis. Thank you Mike! Hazy pale yellow golden color with white head. Yeasty, hoppy and malty aroma, spicy, light funky, grassy, citrusy fruity, some honey notes. Sweet, light acidic and bitter taste like aroma. Medium oily body with average carbonation.

GIJOE (1082) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JUN 25, 2016
Pours bright yellow with a foamy white head that slowly reduces to a ring and film. Sparse, delicate lacing. Nose is tart with some barnyard funk; notes of straw and grass; grapefruity citrus. Taste is mildly sour and slightly dry on the finish. Light body, fine carbonation. Very nice brew!

yngwie (16504) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2016
Bottle, 75cl. It pours an almost clear body and a golden color, with a dense, white finger-thick head. It’s very fruity on the nose, with some peppery saison yeast, a light funky hint, some flower I guess is from the honey and then some more fruityness. Some bitterness in the mouth, with hints of oranges. Peppery yeast, flower notes and a wee malty touch in the flavor. It’s dry and pleasantly carbonated, with a lasting finish of tropical fruits, peppery yeast hints, bitterness, flower and honey. Nothing but delicious. 160102
