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

Ernest (6905) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 24, 2015
Draft (Monk’s Cafe, Philly). Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of lemon/lime juice, sour apple, wood, band aid. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. A competent but unexciting sour ale. It’s a pity to find HF is making trendy Americanized sour/wild ales in the vein of Anchorage and many others. I honestly don’t find anything special in this even though there’s nothing wrong with it. After this and Dorothy, its quite clear Blackberry Farm is the brewery to beat in the US for classic saisons.

Franckg (646) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 22, 2015
Embouteillée 22/07/2015, bue après 4 mois. Robe dorée voilée surmonté d’un beau col de mousse blanc et laiteux. Arômes se citron, levures, orange, pain blanc frais. Notes florales et léger sucre résiduel qui vient atténuer les effluves citronnées. En bouche, citron, jus d’orange fraîchement pressé, levures épaisses. Encore cette sensation florale pas désagréable du tout. Pointes de grains maltés et de légers agrumes venant des houblons. Liquide d’une fraîcheur et équilibre presque sans faille. Bien sur, le citron est à l’honneur mais il est enveloppé dans une texture onctueuse ou plutôt laiteuse où les levures s’affirment. Finale plus amère et fruitée venant des agrumes. Superbe.

Vestergaard (1107) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2015
Bottle shared by Darrin in the line for Blåbær Release 2015. Pours a pale yellow with a big, white head. Aroma has sweet, belgian style esters, elderflower, funk and oak. Slight wheat and a bit of hops. Taste is more dry and funky, slightly hoppy and slightly tart, but very oaky. High carbonation and smooth, sparkling body.

2014 vintage, thanks Leighton. Horsey funk, some light citrus. Lightly bitter and tangy, drier. Chewy, lighter body. Very effervescent. Excellent.

fishonmyplane (505) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - SEP 22, 2015
Maybe not the most representative saison in the world - but possibly the best. Surprisingly sour, with lemon, yeast, and a background Brett funk. Nice lacing on the glass, perfect carbonation level, and a sticky, lingering finish. Packed with an incredible amount of flavor & depth. Even though the hops are a big part of the flavor, I could definitely see this beer getting even better with some cellaring to take the edge off some of the sharper notes. Still, this is as close to a flawless beer as I’ve had in a long time.
