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

Very pale, cloudy light golden. Ringed white fluff and film. Terse ivory plinkle of lemon. Buried sherbert, hay, so clean and lean. A strong and lasting Saison yeasty safe buzz. Crinklely mouthfeel when the carbonation fades. Finishes a little chalky/soapy is the only downside. Linger is dragging lemon, softest and cleanest yeast. Much, much delicious.

Bottle, Cheers BenH, Alps Tasting

dandeman (505) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2014
Bouteille rapportée de la brasserie au Vermont. L’olfactif nous dévoile des accents prononcés de levure aux notes de pommes et de cidre ainsi que des houblons floraux et herbacés. Le visuel est jaune / paille, flou, avec une bonne mousse dense qui tient bien et qui laisse de belles traces sur le verre. En bouche, les levures sauvages prennent immédiatement le dessus, développant des notes de pommes et laissant une douce acidité agir en permanence. L’acidité est très agréable malgré tout. Elle demeure très rafraichissante. La texture est assez mince. L’équilibre est bon. Mais j’en suis un peu déçu de par son manque de complexité.

Yorker (1162) - Herning, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2014
75 cl bottle @ home. Pours hazy golden with a little sediment and a white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are yeast, spices, and fruit - with a slightly dry finish.

750 ml bottle shared by Jeff. A fantastic funky and genuine saison made in the rustic Belgian style. A gem of a beer. Thx for sharing Jeff!

hirigalzkar (2283) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle. Starts out nice and fruity with notes of watermelon and tangerine. A rough and rather unpleasant citrusy sourness takes over after a while. Too bad as this beer seemd very promising.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2014 Bottle. Hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma is saison yeast and citrus. Taste is lightly tart with some lactic notes and tangerine. Nice mineral aspect as well. Beautiful soft mouthfeel with sufficient carb. Incredible.

johnnnniee (2293) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle shared by AdamJackson, thanks for the opportunity! Cloudy deep straw color with a decent sized white head that dissipates slowly. Aromas of tart funky lemony light sugary malt. Flavor is tart citrus with hints of funkiness and bits of earthy earthiness to round it all out. Really nice funkified farmhouse ale.

Bacterial (1521) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Hazy light yellow pour with a nice white head. Funky and slightly sour nose. Really nice taste - right at the intersection of sour, funky and hoppy. Excellent.

Bottle. Pours light hazy yellow, fizzy. Tiny white head. Aroma is yeast, fresh herbs, spicy. Taste is light sweet, sharp and citrusy. Bitter and lasting spicy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
