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

Appearance: Pours a cloudy straw with a nice white cap of head.

Aroma: Musty rainy earth and light herbal hop.

Taste: Spicy earthy yeast,spicy hops, belgian yeast. Finishes bitter and yeasty.

Mouthfeel: Medoum bodied. Soft, borderline creamy carbonation.

Overall: Such a complex, tasty beer , and at 6%, it’s something I would wish to drink all summer long. I had a friend who made a home brew with this particular yeast strain, and it was very tasty, so there is something very special going on here.

pour is a light hazy yellow with a tight slightly off white head. The nose is DuPont esq. which puts it in high regard. Extreme farmhouse yeast, a bit dusty and peppery with a soft lemon in back. Wow, the flavor is huge. Very unique. The flavor has a very strong peppery presence with an extremely pronounced fruity lemon less the tartness. The farmhouse yeast is a bit less assertive and very unique, a touch but dusty with light touches of mushroom and hay. The body is soft and light with a very dry finish and strong carbonation, almost champagne like.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2013 Bottled. Lemony, yogurt, light mineral nose. Tangy flavor, lemon zest, creamy, grass, salt. Appetizing. Excellent stuff, much better than when I tried it last year.

Bottle shared at RBSG Grand Tasting, 2012:7/4/7/4/14. Very yeasty, cloudy whitish yellow. Very strong yeast character that is not convincing me like the Civil Disobedience beers did. Very estery, peach melon, banana flavor. Bitter, nasty aspect to the finish. Might be that it’s the bottom of the bottle, but it’s not that tasty.

Thanks for sharing, Joe. Pours a hazed golden color with a tall white head. Excellent nose to this. Straw, yeast, and citrus peel aromas. A light sweetness, some floral notes, and mild spice. The flavor is crisp and refreshing. Biscuit malts, floral hops, yeast, and lightly spicy. A bit of citrus peel, and a light tartness throughout. A very mild funk in the background, too.

750 ml bottle shared by Tooch. Thanks, buddy. What a tasting. Pours a richly hazed golden pour, touches of orange with some healthy glow, touches of haze grow bigger, with a richer whitish head dies to a firm film, laces well overall, richer. Aromas are a touch sweet, with mellow dry florals and citrus, gentle bready malts. Some mellow yeasty spice, inviting, with firm orange and lemon rind on the higher intensity element. Touches of spice. Initial is quite tart, rich citrus with gentle spice. Some richer elements with a firm aromatic and flavorful orange and lemon element. Citrusy and rich with aromatic and richer flavorful citrus, orange, a touch of yeast, with bready malts, a touch of lotion. Really enjoyable. Richly citrus, a touch of funk and mellow tart/sour element gives some life. Backend and finish gives grapefruit, rind, and generall rich citrus and gentle tartness lingering on. Solid offering.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2014 Backlogged review. On tap at Capones. Pours a hazy straw gold color with medium to large fluffy white head. Carbonation was very lively. Aromas of biscuit, floral hops, yeast, dry fruit. Taste is a very clean and refreshing earth citrus with some peach, ashy pepper, and malt. . Cheers Sean. Rerate: tried the blue bottle version which was fantastic, even better then the first version. 2014 is killer, moved up tart lemon and funk barn
