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

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2012
750ml bottle, consumed on the same day as Anna. The pour yields a lightly hazy, beautiful golden body that shines brightly in the light and shows consistently streaming micro-bubbles. A short but steadfast blanket of creamy, snow-white foam sits at the head, giving tissue-thin, tattered sheets of lace to the glass. The nose is masterfully simple, based in über-fresh malted grain with dry, peppery, floral yeast and crisp notes of grassy hops. Like in Anna, there is a suggestion of wet hay or straw that lends a bit of farmhouse character, but missing is her subtle honey kiss and wildflower complexity. This one is more classic saison. Flavors follow the nose, crisp and snappy, biting grass bitterness showing atop a base of fresh cereal, hay, and dried bread. White pepper and other dry spice show in the yeast profile. The palate is dry as a bone, laced with lively carbonation that quickly clears away what little residuals the fully-attenuated, moderate body leaves behind. Damn fine beer. Not quite the showstopper that Anna is, but an excellent example of a straight-up, classic saison. Close your eyes and you’re instantly transported back in time to the fields of Wallonia.

BrettGT (183) - Aalborg, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2016
DH Cascade @ Mikkeller Bar. Aroma of hay, tart orange, lemon, barn, blanket. Pours a relatively clear golden with a dense white head that lasts well. Taste is more complex with brett character, fruity tartness, hay and barnyardy notes. Medium light bitterness and light to medium sweetness. Medium body, average carbonation, slightly creamy mouthfeel, brett finish and a some bitterness. Nice stuff but would have wished for more Cascade character in the aroma.
