Edith (1897-1992) was our grandfather’s sister, and Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to her and her 13 siblings. In her honor, this black saison is crafted from American malted barley, German roasted malts, European hops, our farmhouse yeast, and water from our well. Unfiltered and naturally carbonated, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Edith.

Ingredients: Pale Malt; Roasted Barley; European Hops, Farmhouse yeast, Brettanomyces, and our Well Water.

gEUS (1540) - Linden, BELGIUM - JUL 27, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting. Pours dark brown to light black with a small filmic light grey head. Interesting aroma as it combines the typical peppery character of American saisons, and citrusy hops as well as some sour lactic notes. Medium body with quite some bitterness. Taste is light roasted malts, resinous hops and citrus peel.

MacBoost (1563) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - JUL 24, 2015
Bottle from trade, bottled 2013. Pours a petty dark brown, almost black. Tan head. Aromas of that signature HF yeast. Lightly toasty despite the appearance. Kind of funky, bretty, sweaty. I really dig the beer.

piscator34 (2178) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle via and shared with oakbluff. Near black in colour with strong carbonation. Aromas are of tart red berries, leather, herbs, and milk chocolate. Very complex flavor profile with elements of sour cherry, juicy pink grapefruit, milk chocolate, peppery herbs, and dry malts. Very mellow (almost slick) on the palate, but balanced by the carbonation and funk. A strange beast. Difficult to rate, but tasty.

daknole (10346) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 4, 2015
