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

750ml bottle. Huge gusher so watch out. Orange with a billowy white head. Smells fresh, some forrest, lemon zest, light funk, grass, bit of pepper, clementines, some leather. Moderate carbonation once in the glass, moderate body yet light, sweet, becomes dry, leaves a nice spice and citrus tang on the palate.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle shared by drewbeerme. Pours a very attractive glowing gold, frothy white head. The nose is fantastic. Lightly tart, bretty, barnyard and pils malt. Light herbal hops. Really fresh and clean. On tasting, pleasant acidity and dryness, a bit thin bodied, however. The balance is fantastic between the pils malt and hop bitterness, as well as the acidity. Pretty superb saison that is how I expect 5th element was prior going totally sour. A bit more body and this would destroy everything.

NikkTwist (1512) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Draft at Eulogy. Hazy golden yellow with a fizzy frothy white head. Nice full saison with a good mix of dry and sour. Ripe Meyer lemons. Big grassy notes. Tasting Brett. Good carbonation. Nice lingering finish. Feels a bit bright to be a traditional Belgium Saison, but has a strong character that I like quite a lot.

On tap at Hill Farmstead Harvest Festival. Hazy yellow with a medium white head and nice lacing. Aroma of saison yeast, peppery notes, citrus and sour/acidic hints. Taste is of grain and bread with peppery notes and a nice sour/acidic presence. Nice dry finish. This Saison is right on style and even enhanced by the sour/acidic presence. Super refreshing and drinkable.

Had overfilled, which is never a bad thing, at Harvest yesterday midday. Pours a beauteous marigold wax -amber with a trim white head. Smells and tastes of lemon tarts, sour grass, juniper berries and Midwest hops. Really nice.
