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.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Bottle, 2012 batch. Fluffy, billowing head on the pour, dense and lovely. Milky, lactic acid nose, very creamy, dirty yeast, barnwood and oregano. Flavor is extremely lactic, overly so, more of a milkyness than sourness, though there is a distinct tart note, almost more green apple than lemon. The milkiness comes across as a flaw. A nice beer, but very similar to 1809 Berliner Weisse, which is a whole lot easier to find and cheaper than this.

Bottle. Pours hazy gold, medium white creamy head, long lasting, nice lacing. Aroma is dusty, hay, a hint of salt. Flavor is light sweet, very light tart, mineral water, wheat, light lemon notes, minimal bitterness. Light body and super easy drinking.

Ibrew2or3 (7489) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 3, 2015
Bottle pours with a papery opaque golden body that supports an off white head. The aroma offers up spicy yeasty notes and then there’s lots of floral and flowery meadow going on as well. The taste starts with crisp mild tartness that heads toward flowery floral notes and spicy yeastiness. Into the finish it picks up the addition of some vague fruitiness. Hmm. Pretty nice.

Many thanks Jason - bottled in 9 of 2015!! Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold with a nice off-white head. The smell is wheat, spice, tart fruit. The taste is tart fruit, dull malt, wheat, spice ending dry and very crisp. Light in body with slightly above average carbonation. Very interesting brew!

Many thanks to Rian for sharing. Sourish but fresh nose. Easy to drink beginning. Hints of malt. Nice citrus-horse blanket-sourness. Tart but fresh. Nice not too intense bitterness in the end, round, tart. Hints of grain, fresh smooth, round and sourish. Nice.
