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

HogTownHarry (6278) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 5, 2013
November 2, 2012 - with blankboy, gregclow, jercraigs & mabel - 750ml capped bottle c/o blankboy. Very cloudy pale yellow with a huge lasting fluffy white head. Lovely aroma - dry, lemony/yeasty, floral, acidic/funky - gooood. Taste - oooh! - more like a sour ale than anything else "lemon ......... and stuff" - not much alcohol presence. Average body, nice and acidic, solid carbonation, dry tingly battery acid finish - not over the top, lemon zest in the finish.

Bottle. Pours hazy pale golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of hops with subtle acidic and grainy notes. Bitter, hoppy flavour with vinous notes and subtle, sweet grainy touches. Bready aftertaste. Good.

dagimp (837) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2013
On tap at the Railroad bar and grill. Pours a dark cocoa brown with light brown head. Chocolatey aroma, also very cocoa (a theme to be sure). Mouthfeel is moderate but actually a little thick for a porter. Slightly greasy and more towards an export stout as it’s not quite thin or dry enough to be a porter. Taste is cocoa to be sure. The Belgian notes were quite present. Reminded me of a smaller Weyerbacher Tiny, except good. The more I drank, the more I liked.

toxichop (499) - South Gate, California, USA - MAY 7, 2013
S: Blows out whith lots of grains and farm bretty notes, there is also lemons with sharp smell (pee) which was unpleasent and really one of few things I didnt enjoy about this beer, but it fades after a while, and then just add some spices to the smell. Strong smell overall. P: A golden haze with a big white haze, this looks like mango juice towards the end. T: I found this rather difficult, there is banyard tartness upfront, sour lemons, coriande, and some spices, its just great. M:Light and puckery with great carbonation. O: A great fine saison, the lemons and spices made this awsome, I was sad driking the last drops.

haukur (1438) - 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!

From a 75 cl bottle at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen, Denmark. Hazy golden, medium white head. Fruity with notes of pineapple and mango. Light to medium bodied, medium to high carbonation. Dry with a soft acidity. Very tasty and refreshing.
