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

Thanks to Mista for sharing this. Golden color, small white head. Aromas of funky citrus. Taste is dry and tart, really refreshing, a bit of funk. Carbonation is on the high side. Until I tried this I would have told you I don’t like Saisons but this was pretty great.

Glowing yellow liquid topped by a nice and white bubbly head. Aromas of barnyard and citrus. Refreshing acidity with more lemon and hay in the taste. Yeasty like any good saison, it was plenty refreshing and good.

75cl, new exclusive American brew Anno 2010, thx to Secret Santa!, complex brew, malty/fruity and slightly sour/bitter, easy to drink, balanced, cloudy, rocky head, nice brew, yet expensive!

Huge thanks to Jcwatts for bringing this to Dmac’s. Pours out a clear, light golden color with a small white head. Aroma is of light grains, fruity esters, light hops and a good dose of some funky tartness. Taste is complex, lemon zest, oak, grainy notes, light fruit and a good lightly funky tartness going on throughout. Once again, this is a really tasty beer, huge thanks John.

Bottle shared by starrdogg. Thanks Matt. Served along side Hill Farmstead Art, Flora, Civil Disobedience, and McKenzie Irma Extra. The beer is hazy and yellow hued with a thick, white head that leaves ample lacing on the snifter. The aroma brings floral, citrus, malt, yeast. The flavor is decent. Overly yeasty, with some fruit notes, perhaps apricots. The feel is very dry, with lingering yeast. Overall, a decent saison that could stand a few improvements.

Bottle shared by jcwattsruger, thanks John. Poured a golden straw body, completely opaque when the yeast from the bottom of the bottle was poured, an average sized foamy white head leaves lots of lace all over my New Belgium tulip. Aroma is great and super complex, notes of wet flowers, yeast, lemon tartness, chardonnay, spices, band aid, dough. Medium body with soft carbonation and an almost creamy finish. Flavor of chardonnay, yeast, lemons, band aid, tartness, spices, just complex with lots going on. This is a great beer overall.

Lukaduke (2216) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 23, 2012
On draft at HFS Harvest and multiple bottles shared over the last month....Pours a nice golden color with a lively froth... great aromas of funky tart citrus, white pepper and barnyard yeast. On the palate its nicely balanced between doughy sour notes and bright citrus acidity. The flavors play well together in a rustic grassy farmhouse saison style that is tuned perfectly to my personal palate. Love the tartness...need more, road trip soon!

750ml. Bottle. Huge thanks to Ernesto987! Pours hazy opaque pale yellow with a tight soapy white head that fades to a film and sudsy collar. Aroma is tart lemon funk yeast and grassy notes. Taste is more tart lemon sour grassy yeast and malt with an amazing tart sour godliness ! Palate is medium and chalky with a drying finish. AMaZInG!
