i always expect grisette to have unique grain characters. you know, oats and spelt and rye and all sorts of stuff. i also expect it to be very low alcohol, like session saison type beer. maybe thats because my limited experience with the style has showed me this, i dont know if thats required or not, but this beer doesnt really have either of those, and so to me seems more like a saison, just with a really mild yeast strain. the beery is hazy golden and bright, with a tall white head, looks lovely. the nose is dry wheat predominantly and the yeast, which is bready but fruity a bit too. the flavor shows some cool grassy hops in the finish where there was none in the nose. i like that, very old world feeling here. the yeast is more saison than belgian, but seems to have elements of both, without being all that interesting. its dry and well carbonated, definitely a summer refresher. not quite as dynamic on the grain front as i had expected and hoped for, but unquestionably a well made beer overall.

Poured a hazy light gold with a thick creamy white head. Nice spicy yeast esters with a little but if citrus and banana for both the aroma and taste. There is a nice light body with a nice crisp finish.
