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.

Thanks to Andrew for this tasty pour. Tart earthy lemon nose. Tart yeast lemon flavors. Malts that are slightly sweeter. Not quite as good as Arthur, but I’d drink this most any day. 8/4/7/4/15

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.

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.

tleaver33 (62) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Bottle, poured into a tulip. Pours light yellow with a lot of white foam that takes a long time to fade. Aromas of grass, lemon zest and green apples. Taste is green apples, lemon peel and a touch of funk. Very light body, almost like a Berliner weisse. Very drinkable. Really nice beer.

Thanks Keef. Bottled earlier. Nice light grain on lemon color with a solid quilt of white fines and drapes of lace. Nice nose here. Plenty of grain, soil, hints of horse, some manure and clay. Slightest hint of lemon in the nose. Slightest tart with lemon flavor, grain, yeast, some tasty light pilsner character. Medium on full bodied with soft carbonation and a wet finish. This is a really desirable beer. Serving type: bottle 10-06-2012

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - NOV 27, 2013
Hazy strawy pour with a huge foamy white head with good retention and lacing. Acidic and yeasty aroma, with pleasant fruity notes of oranges and apples. High in carbonation, and a very refreshing mouthfeel. Sour aftertaste. Very enjoyable.

5000 (6184) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Bottle:   Dirty straw, a bit orangish, thick, moderate frothy white head, fairly nice lacing.   Bright barnish musty nose, very bright herbal notes, slightly floral, a little shrubby.   Dry and bubbley on the tongue, wheaty, bright shrubbiness, a little musty and barnish.   A little mineral water like on the backside but its minor.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Super dry finish, wheaty, with lingering shrubs.   Pretty tasty for a 4% beer!
