Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.00%

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

A: When it poured into a tulip glass, the color was slightly hazed straw yellow. There was a high 2-3 finger head that was quite foamy. Nice lacing and residual head after it settled.

S: Lemon, grass (hay), and floral notes.

T: Peppery and bright but light on hops. Some citrus. There is a malty balance and bready character. Complex.

M: Light to Medium body, well carbonated, dry, and extremely drinkable.
