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. 4% ALC/VOL 9º P Ingredients: Pale Malt, Organic Vermont Wheat, American and European Hops, Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

rodenbach99 (3183) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2014
Bouteille de 750ml (merci Patrick) 09-2014. Une bière jaune avec une mousse blanche durable. Un nez qui sent la sécheresse, le blé, la levure. Une bouche sèche, classique, blé. Une finale très sèche à la limite astringente. Ce boit seul.

(retrieved from 08/2013 Midwest jpg backlog, CHI tasting - big bottle courtesy of CHI tasting crew, thx). Dry and fluffy lemon-forward grisette in the best of sessionable traditions: lactic wheat components deliver great gentle tartness, dry yeast without too much brett at work on palpably quality pale malt, clean body, a crisp finish with a late citric rind hop zing leaves you eager for another sip/bottle/or, in the case of our CHI police crew: to jump back in your van for another 1000-mile haul to VT...

Thanks Kingcecil for sharing this treat. It pours hazy golden with a dense white head. The aroma is grapefruit, barnyard, sour fruits and fruity hops. The flavor is light acidic and grapefruit hoppy with brett and some tart notes. Very drinkable.

Taste is crisp bright tart citrus, peach, orange, hay, subtle yeasty fruit, hints of dry grain and wheat. Finish is soft mild fruity tartness with juciy peach, orange, lime. Incredibly easy to drink. Fantastic.

Pour is pale golden amber with a slight haze and a tight white head. Nose is juicy pineapple and mango with a strong balance of floral Aromas. Taste is juicy, light resin, tropical fruits with more floral flavors. Faint grain, notes of salt, well carbonated light body, very dry and clean.
