COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Arthur (1922-2005) was our grandfatherís 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 13ļPlato

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Bottle from HF trade. No honey profile like Anna. Aroma and flavor shifted toward the sour aspect of the wild yeast, but, yes, rustic. Very good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I guess itís overkill to say this is great - itís Hill Farmstead. Pours dark cloudy yellow lace with good lacing and head. Aroma of bretta, orange peel and a little cumin and pepper even. Finishes bitter-sour. Soft carbonation. Thanks to John for sharing this.

Sammy (8359) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2013
Terrific saison. Aroma is tantalizing with a fruit invitation. Cloudy yellow. Understated carbonation. Some lace. Slightly pickled lemon taste and thatís a good thing. Very good drinkability. Lots of farmhouse in the end of the bottle. Thanks for sharing Sprague.

Bottle. Gotta love the funk! This was very tasty, and was very fortunate to meet people who just picked these up from the brewery while in line on Only Void Day.

From Brad. Thanks! Split. Reviewed from notes. A: Pours out as a yellow-lemon sun with an energetic and expanding white head. Great head retention. N: Lemon zest and pine/cedar. Forest floors, dried leaves, and log cabins. Lavender and coriander seeds. Green apple. Have to give this one high marks; I really enjoy it. T: Slightly soured with some bitterness and very little malt. Clean taste for the most part, but then I get a hint of sharp, stomach acid which I really canít stand. M: dry and pleasing. The beer fills the palate, and then it disappears. O: This is really nice, but I really wish it didnít have that stomach acid effect because itís a huge turnoff for me. If not for that one flaw, this might be my perfect beer.

HonkeyBra (3249) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUN 29, 2013
750 ml bottle from Secret Santa. Thanks man! Pours a bright orange color with a big, thick white head. Aroma of barnyard funk, rich dough and bread, basement aromas, mild clove and pineapple. Flavor is dusty and bread notes in the forefront, dry, rich, and funky. The finish brings out a splash of citrus and tropical fruits. Absolutely delicious. Nice, medium body, full carbonation. This is a fantastic beer.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2014 750ml bottle in a Hill Farmstead glass. Pours cloudy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of light fruits, spiciness, caramel and pale malts, and light floral hops. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Average texture. A great saison. Edit: The latest batch. Still looks the same. Tart flavor in addition to everything I mentioned before. Another great HF beer.

25.4 oz bottle courtesy of zharsch, shared with beastiefan2k and csbosox. The pour is a hazy orange golden yellow, with a smallish white head. Nice lace left behind on the glass. The aroma is soft lemon citrus, dry floral, a bit of yeast funk, and a very pleasant mineral earth encompassing the entire nose. The taste is tart lemon citrus, with floral character, opening up to the dry funk yeast earth and mineral. The palate is lovely, medium to light bodied, soft natural carbonation, and a dry tart funk mineral finish. Nice one, cheers for sharing Zach.
