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

haukur (1432) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - MAY 6, 2013
Bottle at Mikkeller & Friends. I remember when I had my first saison, it was a Fantome quite long ago. I was blown away be it´s blance and complexity. This is better, it´s incredibly true to the style and balanced. Loads of outhouse, farm, grass, yeast and funk in this one. There is massive amount of fruits, some mango, grape, citrus, but very subtle and balanced. It´s quite refreshing but is demanding a lot from your sences. Fantastic stuff!

750 ml bottle @ Mikkeller & Friends, Copenhagen. Pours a slightly cloudy colour with a foamy white head. Aroma of wheat, strong brett and citus. Flavour of wheat, white grapes, floral hops, brett and maltiness. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Finishes floral, spicy and mellow on sweetness. Really refreshing and summery. Great stuff.

tiong (4736) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 2, 2013
750ml bottle @ Mikkeller & Friends, Copenhagen

Pours clear yellow with a small foamy head. Aroma of funky bretta notes, fruity hops, farmyard and citrusy notes. Taste is tart, fruity and zesty with bretta, citrus and yeasty farmyard notes. Finish is tart and sourish with lots of bretta and fruity notes. Nice, quite funky and tart, but balanced saison.

podey (637) - New York, New York, USA - APR 21, 2013
750ml bottle generously shared by Max at Zach & Matt’s tasting. Pours clear gold with a huge white head. Aroma is a beautiful sour lemon rind and lemon juice. There’s also a light funkiness in the aroma. Taste is tart/sour but soft at the same time. It’s drinks like an incredibly simple beer but there’s also so much going on. This is a terrific beer, a lovely saison.

auerbrau (3182) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - APR 19, 2013
750mL Bottle, purchased somewhere in Vermont last year. Aroma is a graceful, webby pretty, punctuated with sand and wind. This is a nice beer, if straightforward and a little less layered than other Saisons from HF. I really enjoy the simple, lemon tartness of this. It’s clean and straight talking. In some ways, it feels like if Berliner Weisse picked up a fluffy, Belgian affect. A nice, easy drinker.
