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. Pours a straw yellow with a foamy head. Slightly sour with good carbonation and earthy tones. Saisons aren’t my favorite style, but this one was decent.

Nocturne (934) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2015
750ml bottle. Cloudy yellow. Lots of white foam. Aroma is lemon zest, floral, grassy. Delicate but powerful and satisfying. Taste is not excessively dry, as I thought it might be. There is a slight sweetness here. Not quite as good as I was hoping it might be but displays HF’s usual class and balance.

Thank you so much b3shine for this generous gift. I am forever in your debt. This beer just screams simplicity, elegance, and sophistication. Pours a nice lemon yellow with crazy mountains of pillow soft white head. Aromas are sweet Belgian yeast and juicy pineapple. A beautiful sour edge to this.. Funk, white wine, Belgian candy, such a good saison.

bytemesis (3840) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy golden butterscotch, large puffy white head, slow to dissipate and leaving lots of clingy lacing. Light aroma overall, with citrus, fresh cut grass, floral and slightly funky notes. Flavor is lightly tart, citric, lots of field of flowers flavors, a bit of white pepper, nice and fruity with a very light funkiness that comes on later. Medium body. Surprisingly not as soft and smooth as I normally expect from HF on the mouthfeel, but otherwise exceptional.

BBB63 (6299) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle Share: Hazy golden hue and okay fluffly head. Notes of lemon, slight barnyard, biscuit, herbs, touch of pine and citrus and some minerally earth tones. I nice Saison but I must say I hoped to be floored and that did not happen.

jc1762 (125) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 15, 2015
Poured into a taster glass showing cloudy straw yellow with a finger of fluffy clea white foam. The nose shows slight bretty and lemon notes with a farmhouse background. The palate is light bodied, moderately but sharply tart, highly carbonated with flavors of lemon zest and very little farmhouse flavor. There’s a slight spice on the palate and a pilsner-like bitterness at the end.

Bottle shared with my wife sent to me from Tom10101, thanks man! Yellow hazy colour with lively white head. Aroma is tart citrus funk, white grapes, and grass. Taste is lemon zest, followed by light funk, then a citrus lemongrass burst. Finishes dry, medium mouthfeel, plenty of carbonation. Fantastic stuff, tons of juicy citrus flavour, very refreshing and a pleasure to drink.

veronneaupy (197) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 17, 2015
Au nez, on sent les fruits tropicaux sûrs. Fruits de la passion, mangue, ananas et des agrumes ressortent accompagnés de levures. En bouche, c'est très intense sur le bout et cotés de la langue. Surette, mais pas trop, la levure est bien présente toujours secondée par tous ces fruits. La finale s'estompe plus rapidement que ce à quoi je m'attendais. Très fine et agréable. C'est une autre biere d'exception de Russian River! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
