This farmhouse ale was brewed at Hill Farmstead with our friend and mentor Anders Kissmeyer (Kissmeyer Beer & Brewing) and our longtime friend Will Meyers (Cambridge Brewing Co.). Inspired by our guests and their journeys, this beer was brewed with the resourcefulness and inventiveness of the Nordic tradition, as well as the creative spirit of its three architects.

4.1
Nische (2523) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2017
Bottled, 2014 vintage. Unclear orange with white head with great retention. Slightly tart with hay, citrus, apricots and some floral herbs. Subtle and balanced.

bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 8, 2017
(750ml bottle) Pours a hazy yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of herbs, florals, grass, barnyard, and nectarine. Flavor of citrus, herbs, yeast, and grass with a moderately dry finish.

annunz123 (967) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 20, 2017
Funky farmhouse aroma with underlying lemon citrus and a little bubblegum. Tart, somewhat funky flavor, balanced by some underlying honey sweetness. Tart, spicy finish. To me this is more of a sour than a saison. Really different and really good.

jinroh (2282) - ESTONIA - AUG 26, 2017
Nice creamy golden, bit of white foam. Sour funkuy saison nose, fruity and dry. Cranberry peels and lingonberries in the nose, coming out also in taste. Sourness is high but fruits or berries. Actually can imagine myself in a wet forest, picking some linginberries from moist moss and eating them right on spot. Nose and flavour and concept together creating this sensation. Great one and lots of character and complexity.

3.8
daje (4535) - NORWAY - JUL 11, 2017
On tap at Øst, october 21st 2016. Cloudy yellow body with a white head. Aroma of zesty apricot, wheat, fresh acidity. Taste is sour and bitter, rhubarb, grapefruit, apricot comes to mind. Funky brett and sour finish, overall a crispy and refreshing beer.

skrip (230) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2017
*8/3/2014 750ml bottle poured into a Hill Farmstead wine glass. A~ beautiful glowing copper with yellow undertones. decent head and a bit of lacing. S~ tons of bready, peppery Belgium saison yeast, tart citrus and what do you know! a ton of honey! T~ you get everything from the nose just a tad more subtle here. so theres bread, pepper, lemon, lime, grapefruit, fresh cut grass, wheat, spelt?, and of course great honey flavor! ending with a nice dry lemony tartness and some bretty barnyard funk. mmm...! M~ perfect carbonation! not gonna lie I expected it to gush haha! very refreshing and dry on the finish. O~ its like a sessionable blend of Arthur and Anna hmm...! the crazy citrus from Arthur and the great honey flavor of Anna just a little lighter all around. overall definitely another great colab. i’d like to try Kissmeyer’s version of this at some point. i wish his regulars didn’t start getting brewed in the states... they might be better now but i loved when he was still brewing himself in Denmark. anyway this is a perfect 4.25 and theres nothing wrong with that!

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2017 Balance. Lovely aroma, nice light tartness, fruity, refreshing no flaws. It’s not life changing, but it’s balance is masterfully done.
