COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Edith (1897-1992) was our grandfatherís 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.

timbeer (69) - Rosemount, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle with matsciguy at Armineís. Darkish brown with a tan head that has some staying power. Funky aroma with a hint of roasted malt that I also get on the tongue. Dry and finishes with a bit of tartness

SirADNielsen (8949) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle @ Arminís house, courtesy of mattsciguy. Thanks! Pours a deep brown appearance with a light brown head. Somewhat minty / herbal, slightly roasty, chocolate, kind if juicy, pretty aroma. Twangy, lime, pineapple, tart fruity, somewhat roasty flavor. Strange but quite tasty.

arminjewell (6101) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thanks Levi! Dark black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of dark fruit, roast, hints of slight orange, grass, slight earthy notes into some spice. Taste is a mix of roast, hints of earth, orange, hints of grapefruit, nice oak, touch of grain, finishing fairly bitter, slightly dry. Pretty nice.

hopscotch (8914) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle... Dark brown pour with a mid-sized, fluffy, khaki head. Terrific retention. The nose is a spicy, earthy mingling of farmhouse yeast, spice-rack clove, coriander, wet leather and sweaty sock funk. Medium to full-bodied with a 2%-milk mouthfeel and jazzy carbonation. The flavor is where this brew really excels. Nice, clean acidity provides a tart spark that blows away an otherwise pesky nuance of farmhouse yeast phenolic spiciness. Tart, tangy finish. Bravo! Bottle courtesy of landhoney!

VT (1298) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a ruby reddish black with a resilient beige head. Aroma is bretts, tart, oldish. Flavor is red berry, blackberry, and other dark fruits. Yummy. Finish is very tart, brettish, oldish, dusty and very lemony. Medium body, weak to average carbonation. Highly enjoyable dark saison.

gramity (1307) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 7, 2014
t. Pours dark brown with a modest tan head and a sour malt aroma. There is a dark roasted malt flavor that is fairly sour and a dry finish. Darker and more tart than most saisons.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Appearance: Pours black with a thin khaki film.

Aroma: Roast, wet dog, soury funk/sweet tarts.

Taste: Some tart brett notes first and foremost, minerals, light roast,cola, finishes tart.

Mouthfeel: Lively carbonation, full bodied.

Overall: It was a fine little brew. Nothing I seek out usually, but Iím glad I got to try it.
