Hill Farmstead Brewery Arthur

What the brewers say

“Crafted from American malted barley, American and European hops, our distinctive farmhouse yeast and water from our well. Unfiltered and naturally carbonated.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Light sweetness, a touch of grapefruit, pear and lemon, and a hint of floral rose and iris. The aroma is slightly bready with the expected white-pepper spice, and a mild funk says “Brett.”

Flavor: “Tart note up front with strong grapefruit and lime notes. Moderate carbonation amplifies the acidity and creates a puckering finish with a slight peach sweetness transitioning to a dry Lacto finale. Pear and lemon, dry stone-fruit flavors, and funky earthy Brett.

Overall: “Moderate acidity and a strong bitterness toward the end make this a beer for aficianados more than casual drinkers. Very complex with pear, citrus, and slight floral notes. Finishes with a palate cleansing dryness that’s very drinkable. Funky, earthy, and rustic notes are well-balanced with the strong citrus lime notes, and the creamy head is nice to see. Acidity was strong but not too strong. One of the more drinkable beers we’ve tried.”
