COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

From notes. Enjoyed this baby at a line share at Witch’s Hat on St. Patty’s Day. 750 mL bottle opened by Gus. The pour is a darker brown, hints of light ruby, with a light tan head that fizzles down to a film, leaving some solid lacing. The aroma is very funky right up front. It’s got a little more of a traditional Belgian farmhouse happening with the banana and a hint of clove, but the roastiness kind of saves it here. There is a little barnyard funk going on, but that’s about it. The flavor is also pretty good. It’s got a nice tartness up front with an excellent roast throughout. The banana and clove are gone, and the flavor is a little enjoyable! The brett funkiness really comes through on the back end. The mouth feel is good. It’s a little heavier than I’d want it to be with a nice crisp carbonation and a lingeringly roasty, funky brett aftertaste. This one is definitely a good beer, and HF does manage to do it well. Thanks Gus!
