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

LOVE this Beer! Pale bright yellow-gold, w/very slight haze.

Wheat, pale malt & hops. Earthy, herbal, spicy, dry.
Fresh bread, ginger, coriander, pear & caraway-seed, Light (4% ABV), but packed with flavor. Beautiful round, slightly bitter, earthy, dry finish.

Yup, Awesome.

Hill Farmstead has the magic touch, & is clearly one of the worlds great Brewers. No shit sherlock.

Despite not having too many Farmhouse beers, this one has by far stood as my favorite of what I've tried so far.

Slightly tart, lemon, a bit funky.

Great beer!

Was at HF this week. Of all the beers there, Clara was the clear winner from our group. Beat out double citra, double galaxy, Susan, citra, among the regulars. Also drinking better out of the bottle than Anna or Dorothy.

Not sure if they changed the recipe from previous years, but 2014s vintage is way better than reviews.
