Brewed for Ibis Bakery, and celebrating their first anniversary at 1624 Grand KCMO - Mareritt is brewed with local, raw Darby white wheat sourced from Ibis. Showcasing the breadth of flavors found in simple ingredients, we fermented this Grisette-inspired beer using a Kveik strain of yeast. During fermentation, this yeast produces radical aromas of bright citrus, orange and tangerine to compliment the earthy, wheaty components of the base beer.

acquired via trade from @harrison8, thanks, man! poured from a brown 500ml bottle into a tulip glass.

A: i decanted this pour, reserving the sediment for later. Mareitt pours a clear-amber color witha fluffy white head that quickly dissipates into a thin lacing. 4/5

S: big aromas of white grape, tangerine, guava and just a hint of wheat. very interesting 4.25/5

T: in all honesty, i haven't had many grisettes over the years and i have not tried a beer brewed with this yeast strain, so this is all a bit new and unique to me. it's quite pleasant and similar to the nose. lots of vinous, white grape-ish flavor with a bit of tangerine as well as some toasted bread. white wheat flavor is certainly there and adds a nice rustic quality to the flavor of the beer, which punches well above its 3.9% ABV. nice and clean finish to boot; this is a nice table beer. 3.75/5

M: thin body, quite crisp and finishes dry. very enjoyable mouthfeel. 4.25/5

O: this was a fun little beer. i only say "little" because of the ABV because this one packs a lot of flavor nuances. much more fruity and refreshing than i was expecting while somehow still being rustic enough to be a good table beer. quite good! 4/5

Pours a slightly foggy straw color with two fingers of white, bubbly head that pops and fizzes away quickly. Transparency turns to a dull murky straw color with the final couple ounces. Aroma is orange, papaya, and wheaty, biscuity, doughy malt notes. It smells pretty raw, as if smelling the grains and dough at a bakery. Flavor profile continues to the bakery, wheaty vibe delivering notes of wheat, toast, biscuit, and dough layered over orange, and tangerine. Citrus compliments the breadiness well. Mouth feel is small, fairly thin, and carries a light fizzy, grainy texture to it. Overall, splendid blend. It's very low ABV and extremely manageable. It's easily crushable, and provides a unique perspective compared to most modern easily crushable beers. Malt notes are high here, which is a delightful change of pace.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 500mL bottle.
