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

25.4 oz bottle courtesy of zharsch, shared with beastiefan2k and csbosox. The pour is a hazy orange golden yellow, with a smallish white head. Nice lace left behind on the glass. The aroma is soft lemon citrus, dry floral, a bit of yeast funk, and a very pleasant mineral earth encompassing the entire nose. The taste is tart lemon citrus, with floral character, opening up to the dry funk yeast earth and mineral. The palate is lovely, medium to light bodied, soft natural carbonation, and a dry tart funk mineral finish. Nice one, cheers for sharing Zach.

MrHangover (3139) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle, thnx to Bytemesis, shared at Deans Sticky Floor Tasting 2. Big gusher, bottle almost exploded, luckily my superhuman reflexes did not allow much beer to be spoiled. Hazy blonde pour with a soapy, fluffy white head. Aroma is funky barnyard saison yeast with some light touches of Brett. Flavor is medium sour and light spicey. Low abv, yet nice full flavour. Mouthfeel is well rounded, no sharp edges and a dry, yet juicy finish. Very good.

probstblueribbon (3273) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2013
750 mL bottle via Lubiere, cool, tulip. Gushed. Milky golden with a large, fluffy white head. Quite peppery, spicy, zippy, green herbs, light funky tang, a little booze, nice. Medium-ish body, very low effervescence. Nice peppery character, a little green herb, light funk, a bit of toasted grain, nice; dry, gentle bitterness and a green, lightly funky finish. Pretty good.

Bottle @ Sticky floor tasting II. Opaque hazy yellow, a bit pale yellow color even with a small to medium sized white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, a touch of sour, lightly funk, orangepeel and citrussy. Quite fresh and nice. Quite like it.
