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

Marheb (1749) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2014
Majestueuse robe dorée orangée qui éjecte à son sommet une mousse onctueuse. Le nez est celui d’un pain frais tartiné d’un gâteau de levure et saupoudré d’un zest d’orange. Le corps est bien effervescent et se métamorphose plus avance la dégustation, c’est presque juteux vers la fin. Le liquide traverse délicatement un brouillard de houblons vers une finale légèrement herbacée.

This one poured a hazy yellow color wirth a white head. Aroma was of grass, hay, lemons, earth, and rain. Flavor was grainy and citrsuy, some vbread, light rusitic funkyness. Anogther solid saison from HF.

It’s my name! Bottle shared thanks to beerman6686. Pours a hazy yellow with a fluffy white head. Leaves a beautiful lacing. Aroma of slight Brett but not too crazy. Slight pineapple. Taste is dry and slightly tart. Effervescent. Delicious.

bellco33 (169) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - FEB 4, 2014
750ml bottle poured into a tulip:. Hazy straw colored with a very thick, foamy, white head. Aroma is lemon, hay, brett, and funk. Taste is a bit citrusy, pepper, and definitely a brett yeast element but it’s not overpowering (which I enjoy). Medium body, a bit bitter from the brett, nice beer.

Ibrew2or3 (6521) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 26, 2014
The 750mL pours with a murky sort of hazy gold body that supports a white head. The aroma offers up sugary sweetness, spicy Saison like yeasty notes, plenty of flowery wet meadow and mild fruity esters. Smells pretty rich. The taste confirms this as it is on the sweet sluggish side for a Saison with sugary sweetness, apples and pear sweet fruity esters rimmed with a fruit skin like tartness and then yeasty spices. It picks up lots of floral and flowery notes as well as a touch of funky basement mustiness mixed tartness toward the finish. Overall too heavy and too sweet.

dEnk (3482) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle @ De Molen, thanks JulienHuxley! Aroma is peppery yeast, brett, fruits, lemon, some malt. Flavour is a quite dry zesty bretty fruity peppery yeast, citric bretty finish. Very refreshing!

nuplastikk (4127) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 18, 2014
750ml bottle shared by Madbeerbaron. Thick, unfiltered yellow-tan. Foamy, lacy white head. Lemony, sour, dry chardonnay tastes. Nice, subtle, refined. Pretty much nails it. Dry peppery, fruity tropical undertones. True.

Clownoisseur (137) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Poured slowly out of a bottle courtesy of Adam Jackson. Cheers! Aroma is of a light Brett funk, citrus, some hay. Appearance is sparkling golden, fine carbonation, almost champagne-like. Taste tart for a Saison. Full flavored. Nice medium bodied compliments the sweet barley, light hop bitterness and hints of bready yeast. Very nice balance of flavors. Finishes very crisp.

Bottle. Thanks Mike! Medium hold body, white head. Nose is some pithy citrus, strawberries, yeast. Flavor is citrus, unbalanced tartness, a bit of harsh yeast. It’s a fine bet but doesn’t compare with most of hill’s other offerings.

I love this beer. Poured from the bottle. Beautiful orange color and a great funky Brett nose. This surprising saison hits you from the start - spice, sour, wow. Great palate and a lovely finish. A great drinker all around.
