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

willisread (2455) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 6, 2016
Rating number 2300 and my first Hill Farmstead. Thanks for sharing the bottle Tim! Pours a hazy, lemon colored straw with a finger of foam that lingers. Tart lemon zest on the nose with some iyokan and tangerine aromas. More tart than I expected but pleasantly so. Very active carbonation. Light bodied with a slight yogurt character. Dry finish. Fantastic saison.

TimE (5046) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 3, 2016
Very hazy chalk white color. Frothy white head. Tart, funky, citrusy, dry, hoppy with a bit of bandaid that works well in the nose. Very tart, citrusy, funky, decent amount of brett, dry and hoppy. Perfectly balanced and put together. A bit more sour than I expected, but I love it. Estry finish with some citrus notes just lingering. Amazing.
