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

ctipping (298) - Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2015
On tap at the Farmhouse Tap. 2012 keg, so they say. Served in a wine glass. Originally reviewed 7/21/2013. Bright orange yellow. Nice white head. Nice lacing. Good rention. Aroma is lemony. Slightly yeasty. Pale malt. Stone fruits. Very crisp taste. Tart and a little floral. Strong yeast and herbal bitterness. Pale malt. Some white wine notes and oak? That shouldnít be. Light and crisp. Nice tang. A little bit yeasty. For some reason Iím getting wine and oak from this, but itís the only time I ever got it from Arthur.

DuffMan (8069) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 2, 2015
Bottle, via trade with JulienHuxley (thanks!), and shared with Parksy. Hazy pale yellow with a lively white head that laces thickly. Beautiful complexity, rustic yeast and crackery pale malts, lemon peel, light pepper, grape must, footy undertones. Finish is dry. An outstanding archetype of the style.

Abio (1785) - Waasland, BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2015
While this brew is not my style for sure,.. I had to try it just because of the name... Moderated sourness that gets trough, and better as feared before opening. Hoppy and citrus. I can imagin some people really like this kind of beer.

Frank (3471) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2015
This is cloudy orange w/ a white head of mixed bubbles and a ton of lacing. Itís got a funky, fruity nose w/ lots of lemon citrus and a touch of grassiness. This has solid tartness to it and is overall fresh and juicy tasting. Itís medium bodied w/ creamy carbonation but still crisp and drinkable. This is another good one from Hill Farmstead.

Mr_Abner (200) - Michigan, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Dry hopped version (DHVAR01) -- Hopped with Styrian Goldings and conditioned in stainless. Bottle. Pours a beautiful, hazy pale yellow with a large, fluffy white head. Aromas of HF yeast, citrus, lemon, some spice/light pepper. Taste is light to just shy of moderately bitter. Can taste Arthur in the background, but the bitterness is not kind to him. Some citrus, a touch tart, and an unmistakeable "earthiness" accompanying this. Light bodied, average carbonation, a slight bitterness in the finish. I definitely prefer the regular version of Arthur.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a hazy gold with thick white head. Aroma is fruity with Belgian spices, grass and sour funkiness. Taste is mild to moderately sour overall with flavors of tropical fruits, Belgian yeast and Brett, grains, lemon. Pretty tasty and great for a warm day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
