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

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, - APR 10, 2012
750 ml bottle. A cloudy medium yellow beer, with a large, fizzy/frothy, lacing, mostly lasting white head. The aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain/bread, hay, cookies), moderately hoppy (flowers, grass, lemon, hint of grapefruit and apricot), moderately yeasty (earth, cobwebs, moss), with notes of orange, pepper, banana and tropical fruits.The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately sour, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/slick texture, lively carbonation, dry and long finish with moderate bitterness. This is all about the pureness of the aromas and flavors. Rather fresh, a mix of depth and quaffability not easy to achieve. Far away from any coarseness/groseness. Great beer.

Pours a hazy lemon yellow with a thin white head that settles to a film and leaves decent lacing. Aroma has a barnyard smell with a bit of lemon and plastic. Taste has lemon and light pear with herbal hops, some barnyard and some light medicinal taste. Finishes dry with a bit of herbal hops. Light mouthfeel and body with high carbonation. Fairly complex and easy drinking.

A golden wheat color, slightly hazy, ample amount of white fluffy head. Smells of Funky barnyard, coriander, perm, citrus. Taste is peppery citrus, wheat, coriander, a chemical/plastic like hop bitter. Bubbly funky farmhouse, interesting flavors, don't care too much for the bitter but still good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RickTheRick (467) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 20, 2014
Un nuage de mousse blanche immaculée laisse une dentelle suave sur les parois du verre, celui-ci étant rempli d’un liquide doré et embrouillé. Au nez, la rusticité de la souche de levure maison dégage de légères notes poussiéreuses s’amalgamant aux houblons floraux utilisés en parcimonie pour ne pas compromettre l’aspect fermier de la bière. En bouche, des saveurs citriques et d’agrumes sont rehaussées par la carbonatation virulente et une franche acidité qui rend l’atteinte de la satiété très difficile! Des céréales mordantes confèrent une certaine complexité à un produit sauvagement simple, mais exécuté à la perfection. Un des meilleurs exemples en sol nord-américain de ce que doit être une Saison authentique.

mikedR (1349) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Very classic, old world saison. Usually on this side of the pond there’s a lot less carbonation. If I did a blind taste test, I’d have a hard time distinguishing this guy from the better European brewed versions.

manuelMTL (164) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2014
From 75 cl bottle in tulip. Pour is slightly hazy golden straw with a frothy white head. The nose is citrus, green apples, Belgian yeast and a bit wild. In the mouth, its a firework of flavors that reminds me a bit of Cantillon beers. Pungent sourness with funky horse flavors, citrus, and lots of tartness. Toward the end the bitterness gets stronger with a taste of unripe apples. Medium carbonation. Excellent Saison!
