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

HogTownHarry (6611) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, - MAY 14, 2013
750ml crown-capped shared with blankboy and GregClow, via JerCraigs. Almost opaque ruby-black pour, huge fluffy lasting tan head - lovely, 4+. Sharply dry aroma, dry floral bitterness, sharp dry yeast, light fruit - very bretty, lightly roasty; nice stuff! Taste - oh man thats good - medium-hoppy (dry resin), light roast, slightly vinegar tartness, enough brett to compete - some alcohol; frickin great stuff. Decent body, astringent, lightly carbonated but quite airy, delicately funky, longish dry floral/brett finish. So good.

Garrold (5075) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2017
Bottle. Willys Store, Greensboro, VT. Gloopy pour. Dark brown. Super sticky, lasting, beige head. Nose has dark fruit. Some plum and fig. A little woody and ashy. Hint of liquorice. As well, it has that completely distinctive, Hill Farmstead yeasty twang. Taste is lightly sour and balsamic sweet. Dries out significantly. Not keen on the mouthfeel. Its stringy and gloopy. Balsamic twang to finish. Nice enough, but miles off expectations.

Lots of tangy citrus. Pours brown with lots of head. A little too much lemon for me like a Ford Pinto. Tap at the sovereign.

MartinT (9765) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2017
My Bottom Line:
Starkly citrusy from beginning to end, this tart Saison benefits from a few herbal sprigs and humid earth to render a complex and enjoyable profile.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam skirts the cloudy dark brown.
-Both the nose and flavour profile dont announce much in the way of roasted barley flavor.
-Acidity levels are medium-high.
-The soft effervescence and acidity combine for some easy drinking (for those used to tartness).

Bottle.

Mortlach (2330) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 12, 2017
On tap @Ma che siete venuti a f (Rome). Bevuta a Birre Sotto lAlbero 2016. Bruna scura/nerastra, schiuma media e persistente color bianco sporco. Al naso sentori vinosi, note tostate, caff, pelle, leggero erbaceo, lime. In bocca spigolosa, dolciastra allattacco, con note di caff e vinose, complessa. Corpo medio, carbonazione medio-leggera. Forse un po troppo "complicata" e confusionaria.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. HFD #4 Pachnie i smakuje trochę jak jasne piwo. Fajny Brett, lekka paloność wpada w przyprawy i ciasto marchewkowe. Fajne.

Sergeys hunt; bottled 2015 12 04; 5.8% ABV
Dark brown color, medium head. The aroma has mild note of straws, caramel, and sourness. Smooth mouthfeel, highly carbonated; the darker malts blend well with the vinous sourness. Vinous astringency in the final.
Very good.

ThirstyBird (2895) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2016
Thanks Jason! Pours super dark cola color with a tan head. The smell is dark roasted malt, spice, yeast. The taste is dark fruit, yeast, spice ending slightly sour, dry and roasty. Light/medium in body with the typical great HF fine carbonation.

ippopotamo36 (2325) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 18, 2016
Tap at Ma Che Siete Venuti a F in Rome-Italy with Mortlach. Black pour, creamy and resistant ivory foam. Nose: roast is quite nice, orange chocolate, floral. Mouth: frizzy, peppery, champagne fine with a pinch of lime and a bitter/tart aftertaste which remains. No roast in the taste, much joy tough ;)
