COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Arthur (1922-2005) was our grandfather’s youngest brother; Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to him and his 13 siblings. In his honor, this Saison is crafted from American malted barley, American and European hops, our distinctive farmhouse yeast and water from our well. Unfiltered and naturally carbonated, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Arthur. 6% Alc/Vol 13ºPlato

Aroma: lots of lemon, light malt, grapefruit, some fruity Brett notes, a touch of funk, pepper.

Taste: good dose of acidity, bright and refreshing, lemon zest, hints of pineapple and grapefruit, light malt notes, medium bitterness, bone dry finish. Palate: light-medium body, medium+ carbonation, dry and refreshing finish. Overall: really great saison, crisp and dry with lots of fruit and Brett character.

humlelala (1074) - DENMARK - JUN 6, 2013
(Sample @ Nørrebro Bryghus Tasting) Pours a slightly hazy golden with little, white head. Decent retention, good lace and little regeneration. Aroma is spicy, peppery saison yeast with funky hints resemblant of cider something lactic. Oily texture, medium carbonation and a very dry finish. Flavour is somewhat tart and cidery.

Viper666 (2787) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2013
Bouteille 750ml, courtoisie de mathieuc. De couleur dorée-jaune et quasi-opaque. Nez de levures fruitées (agrumes acides, notes de pêches), moyennement épicées (poivre doux), rustiques et aux notes sauvages, moyen de houblon floral, légèrement herbeux et aux notes citriques (citronnées), moyen de céréales avec des notes de pain. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement crémeuse et aux notes croustillantes. Goût légèrement sûr et acide de levures fruitées rustiques (agrumes, surtout de citron, traces de pêches), moyen-léger épicées (poivre doux, traces de coriandre) et aux notes sauvages lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de céréales fraîches avec un léger goût de pain. Parallèlement, l’on retrouve une légère amertume asséchante de houblon floral, herbeux et aux notes citriques (citronnées) jusqu’en finale. Post-goût moyen et moyennement sec, composé d’un goût de levures fruitées légèrement acides (citron et zeste) aux notes épicées avec une légère amertume de houblon herbeux aux notes florales.

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 5, 2013
November 2, 2012 - with blankboy, gregclow, jercraigs & mabel - 750ml capped bottle c/o blankboy. Very cloudy pale yellow with a huge lasting fluffy white head. Lovely aroma - dry, lemony/yeasty, floral, acidic/funky - gooood. Taste - oooh! - more like a sour ale than anything else "lemon ......... and stuff" - not much alcohol presence. Average body, nice and acidic, solid carbonation, dry tingly battery acid finish - not over the top, lemon zest in the finish.
