33cl bottle.

Very clear, golden. Large grained foam that leaves a lace and a thin layer on the surface.

Aroma is at first pure brett of the fruitier kind. I would say clausenii. After a while, citrusy hop aroma is revealed underneath, but it is not as strong as the mention of dry hopping would lead one to expect.

An association with wood strengthens once tasted, blending with a particular bitterness that this brett creates, mixing with hop-derived base. Otherwise there is just clean dryness of not quite thin feel.

As this is very bretty and dry, not to everyone's liking. Grisette as a style is so vague that hard to rate from that angle. I personally like this, but it is a bit limited in range of flavours.

On tap. Clear golden color with white head. Aroma has floral notes, wood and some yeast funk. Taste is a bit citrusy but not tart, more towards the bitter and woody direction. Light body with medium carbonation. Decent, easy drinking grisette.
