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

Had a few different beers at Hill Farmstead this summer, but this was one of the most memorable ones. Appearance is golden clear with generous lacing and two fingers worth of foamy head. Smell is of a bready yeast, brett, with a hint of citrus including lemon zest. Flavor is a nice funky brett flavor with light tropical notes throughout, mouth feel is tangy like a sour yet is very dry like a champagne. Very unique farm house ale that I truly enjoyed and would recommend to anyone looking to try something of the style.

Pours cloudy opaque orange with a dense creamy white foam head. Smells and tastes slightly tart, funky, wheaty, rustic, floral and citrusy, with earthy grassy piney hops. Feels extremely smooth, soft and creamy with low carbonation. Overall a really great farmhouse grisette.

Bottle from the brewery for $10. Great flavour for such a low ABV beer.
