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

Bottle; Pour is fairly clear, light gold, with a frothy fine bubbled white head into this glass. Retention is average, with sticky lacing presence here as well. The nose is stunning on this one - It’s the highlight though - the bar is so high that I find the rest of it to be disappointing in a way. It’s the perfect fusion of malted barley, lemongrass, modest barnyard notes, mineral water, with a touch of peppery spice. The flavor profile takes a little adjustment - the citrus funk is striking for the style. With time though - a stunning spring saison. Spent grain, lemon zest, grassy hops, light florals, a robust mouthfeel, with a striking modest funk finishline. It was different than I predicted, but as awesome as I had hoped.

Arthur a toujours été un prénom que je déteste, malgré Arthur Laroche, ici ce Arthur, je ne le déteste pas au contraire. Il est fort agréable avec ces notes citronnées amalgamé à du foin aigre. En bouche il se laisse boire, un bon mélange aigre et sucré avec tout ce citron.
