Notes/Commercial Description:
Clara (1906-1969) was our grandfather’s sister; Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to her and her 13 siblings. In her honor, this Grisette is crafted from American malted barley, Vermont Organic Wheat, European and American 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 Clara.

Pale Malt, Organic Vermont Wheat, American and European Hops, Ale Yeast, and our Well Water

750ml bottle served in an HF stem. 09 2014 indicated on the label. Pours a dull orange hue with a slightly hazy clarity and a loose, half inch bright white head that dissipates into a froth. Nose is delicate - light, floral, citrusy and a suggestion of grapefruit seeds. Taste consistent with nose; however, there is a distinct bready quality that cuts through the flavor profile and comes off a bit berlinner weisse-esque. Mouthfeel is light and lively with a pleasant, easy citrus astringency. Finish is fairly clean. Overall, a nice low abv farmhouse - clean and easy drinking. Clara is a great table beer. I'm surprised it's not brewed more often.
