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

Bottle at Mikkeller Bar. Hazy light golden liquid with medium white head. Aroma of white pepper, wheat, lemons, tropical fruit funk, earth, lemon zest and grain. Taste is dry, light bitter and light to medium sour with notes of pepper, fruity funk and lemons. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation .Very balanced and nicely funky. Great stuff, more sour than I expected.

Sample from a bottle. Hazy white / yellow color. Minimal white head. Very nice peppery nose. Dry texture, light body, light carbonation. Really nice saison for sure. More tart than expected. Woody and wild. Very enjoyable.

JStax (3013) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Poured from a 750ml bottle thanks to lukaduke. Pours a hazy straw color with a white head of foam. The aroma is bready, dry, sort of hoppy, and just on the verge of tartness. The taste is hoppy bitter at first and moves toward a dry almost tart note. Another great beer from Hill Farmstead.

My bottle [750ml] shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc & mabel -- c/o Glouglouburp. Nov. 2. Pours a murky pale yellow with an average size lasting foamy white head. Aroma is funky, citrusy and herbal along with some yeast and sweetness. Very citrusy flavour is also herbal, tart and funky. Medium bodied. Great stuff, a lovely Saison.

boFNjackson (4140) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Bottle... Poured pale, golden/yellow with a thin forming, white head. Earthy, grassy, some citrus. But loads of yeast flavor and spice. Some light fruit esters and a mild (very mild) funk when searching for it. Balanced, but sort of one-dimensional.

Tinco (566) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2012
Nice hazy straw light orange. No head. Taste is slightly tart, sour green apples, hay funk, spicy, lemon, grapy, sour appleskins, also maybe some tropical ovverripe fruits. Aroma is hay, little saison funky yeast going on, tart lemon candy, this is a very special and highly enjoyable saison. Aroma gets more complex as it heat up.

brystmar (1261) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Green label. Lots of yeast, grassy and mildly citrusy too. Lemon citrus overtakes the flavor, insisting on a bright overall profile. Carbonation level works for the style. Enjoyable.

Bottle at home with my dad, courtesy of Adam. Big thanks for this one man!!!. Pour is hazy lemon peel in appearance with a huge, long-lasting white head and great lacing. Aroma is musty, lemon peel, band-aid, rubber, dusty, biscuit, hay, and honeycomb. Taste is lightly tart, lemon zest, straw, light barnyard, honey, tangy, light pepper, and white grapes with a lightly tart/spicy finish. Medium body with fizzy carbonation and a crisp lingering finish. Earthy, spritzy, sweet, tangy, and refreshing. Another awesome saison. Nice!!
