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.

The pour reveals a cloudy yellow color with a thick, white head. The aroma is quite yeasty, with spices, hops and wheat, it’s very appealing. The flavor is well-balanced, there’s hops, yeast, wheat and somes spicyness. The body is medium with a creamy, slightly oily texture and lively carbonation. This is really good, it’s a Hill Farmstead beer, after all!

First review - whew! Spicy aroma, bit grassy. Nice bite to it, although it was a bit more tart than I would have hoped.

Thanks Kirk for sharing the bottle! Poured into a wineglass showing well filtered golden yellow with white foam lacing. The nose shows strong farmhouse dry grass and catspee with light bitter notes. The palate is light bodied and moderately carbonated. Lightly tart with clean Belgian yeast forwardness with a mid-palate of light stone fruit - peach and apricot. Finish shows a light bitterness. Refreshing and well made.

*1/6/2013 750ml bottle poured into a dogfish snifter A~ hazy golden amber, with a thick white creamy head S~ like any old saison, yeasty and peppery. T~ heres where this really opens up, unlike the smell the first thing you get is tart, citrus goodness. then comes the wheat and of course pepper. M~ mmm! creamy and tart. very sessionable O~ well... HF does it again, this is my second HF following Arthur. i said Arthur was one of my favorite saison of all time. now i’m a little torn, this is just as good if not better. i can’t wait to try more of their brews. i have a feeling they’re gonna shape up to be one of my favorite breweries!

From the 750 ml. bottle dated 05-15-17. Like so many other HF brews, this one pours an unfiltered slightly cloudy pale yellow with a big foamy head that diminishes some. While I get some wheat malt aromas in the nose I mostly get a a unique, citrus zing and some mellowed wild yeast. The body feels medium to full. The taste is quite nice with a good white bread sweetness, a juicy zestiness, grass, hay, and a mild to moderate finish.

sjogro (4653) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2017
At home with a bottle kindly shared by Maakun, thanks! Hazy golden with white head. Grassy and fruity notes up front. Elderflower, cow parsley, lime, lemon, white grapes, grapefruit, apricot, berries, flower hearts. Moderate sweet and bitter, tart fruity department. Medium body, dry and full of nectar, very juicy, and dense, nice solid stuff. Living stereo picnic porn beer.

Maakun (6340) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2017
Bottle shared. Hazy yellow golden with fizzy white head. Lemon, light fruit blossoms, pineapple, light funk, soft bread, hay, soft bitter herbs, a bit of cheese. Quite fruity with light funk, not very malty but there’s some bread and a hint of oats. Light sour and bitter with very light sweetness. Under medium bodied with soft carbonation. Really my kind of beer. Lovely.
