GrisetteGrisette
Notes: A tribute to the farmhouse table beers, Grisette was fermented in neutral Chardonnay barrels and then aged for 6 months with a delicate blend of our Brettanomyces strains. No acidity, a bigger hop presence and a low ABV, rounded body.

Mildly cloudy, pale yellow body; fair carbonation; thick, billowy white head with flecks of foam dotting the inside of the glass. Delicate aroma of lemon and mild Brettanomyces. Nice tart flavor with a bold citrus edge; white pepper and other spices. Medium body; bubbly and coarse on the palate; citrus juiciness with a relatively mild dry finish.

This is a tasty and lively beer, full of character.

Poured at 44 °F; Blend #1; no bottling data noted.

Pours mostly clear, bright golden color. Velvety white head forms on the beer and shows nice retention. Aroma has notes of rustic grains, tart lemon, with some Brett-y funk. Taste follows the nose with notes of grains, lemon zest, some Brett funk, all with a lovely tartness. Feel is light, crisp, vibrant. Overall a lovely beer.

Batch 7 consumed 9-15-21. Pours a goldenrod hue with a beautiful fluffy white head that dissipates rather quickly into a singular bubble lining. There is a big farmhouse funk on the nose with a mineral undertone. Flavor that hits the palate can best be described as in the lemon family. Not full on flavor, and more of a tang than tart. Finishes with a minerality and an effervescence. I really enjoyed this beer. Very easy to drink. A good start down the Side Project road.

Bright yellow appearance with plenty of fine/creamy bubble present. Lemony aroma and flavor. Bright and effervescent, and all the way refreshing.

A: The beer is hazy light pale yellow in color and has a high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that has excellent retention properties and consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of lemon citrus are present in the nose along with hints of yeast.
T: The taste follows the smell and is somewhat lemony with underlying notes of yeast.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This grisette has a delicate feel to it and is very drinkable. I liked the lemony aromas and flavors. This would be an excellent beer to have with a meal as the flavors aren't overpowering.

Such an easy drinker. Tons of flavor and complexity for a low abv beer. Easily can drink the whole bomber in a night

Pouted from a 750 mL bottle. The color is light-yellow hazy color. The aroma is a bit of funk with a bit of grain, love it. The taste follows the smell with the typical SP acidity and a pillowy soft mouthfeel. Its an awesome beer and tasty nonetheless.

Poured from a bottle (blend #7) into a Belgian glass

L: pours a perfectly clear light gold with a nice dense white head. Lots of visible carbonation

S: clean and crisp farmhouse aroma, nice malt with a bit noble hop character. Get some light lemon notes, a bit of hay and under-baked bread, floral hop notes, some of that barnyard funk as it warms but more in the background

T: follows the nose well, incredibly clean and crisp flavor with a bit of that nice funk adding depth. Get lemon and light pear, that under-baked bread flavor especially to/through the finish. As it warms I get a bit more (but still restrained) funk to it, also get a nectarine/white peach note I really like

F: medium- body, medium+/high- carbonation, nicely drying, very refreshing

O: a very good grisette, with nice fruit notes (especially that nectarine/peach note that came through)

Blend #7. Poured at 50°.

Tart, lemony, yeasty. Soft feel, clean finish. Absolute crusher. Finishes a touch dry. Perfect for taco night.

Blend #8. 04/07/2021.

It has a really nice balance throughout, characterizing notes of sourdough, restrained floral funk, and zesty lemon peel to cut through the mildly dry, oaky backbone. An absolute crusher, and one of my favorite blends of this cult classic.
