Bottle purchased at Nathaniel Square Corner Store in Rochester, NY.

Pours a hazy, cloudy murky yellow, almost looks light green, with a fizzy one inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like green apples, apple skin, hard apple cider, and funk.

This has a lot going on for only 3.8% ABV. This one is tart without being sour, keeping it very crushable and refreshing, a huge green apple character, with apple cider, a bit of hay, and some tart funk. Delicious and really quenches the thirst. This made a good champagne substitute for the ball drop on New Year's Eve.

This has a light, almost airy body, with a crisp and juicy mouthfeel- much like biting into an actual tart apple. The carbonation is fairly high, almost champagne like.

I don't know what a grisette actually is, but I know it's a lot like a saison/farmhouse ale, and this didn't taste much like one. It did taste like a delicious apple wild ale, and that's good enough for me. Awesome.
