Arthur (1922-2005) was our grandfathers 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 13Plato

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 ber-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 youre instantly transported back in time to the fields of Wallonia.

750ml bottle. Pours golden yellow, slight haze, nice carbonation, foamy white head leaving good lacing. Smells sour, sweet, smooth light hops and white wineyness. Tastes sour, tart, sweet, smooth crispiness and a slight hoppy aftertaste. Great drinkability. Smooth mouthfeel, full for a sour. Lovely.

750ml bottles at Alexs.

Fresh bottle (thx, stoned99!). Bottled on 2016-09-15. Pours a murky pale golden with a white head. Aroma is bretts, fermented veggies notes. Taste is sour, pretty similar to the aroma with some very slight ascorbic notes. Good stuff. 8-4-8-4-15=39

Aged bottle (thx, Jonathan G.!). Bottled on 2015-06-18. Aroma is more funky, acidic, some slight sweetness. Taste is more smooth and funk, no ascorbic and fermented veggies notes. 8-4-7-4-14=37.

I do prefer fresh bottle to the aged one.

Sergeys hunt; bottled 2015.06.18; 9-4-7-3-16=38
Highly carbonated. Funky and spicy aroma like one of the best Orvals; but the flavor is less funky than the younger bottle, its more astringent, less dynamic.
I prefer the younger bottle.

Sergeys hunt; bottled 2016.09.15; 8-3-8-4-17=40
Hazy blond color with green hue. The aroma is intense, spicy yeast, funky, with an earthy character, some sweat, almost manure. Dry but smooth mouthfeel; nice spicy flavor, a bit funky, with a nice character of citrus peel; moderate bitterness, but well balanced.
