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 (3264) - 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.

Une bière blonde-orangée, avec une fine ligne de carbonatation, et une apparence voilée. Au nez, ca me fait beaucoup penser aux autres saisons de HF, avec des levures sauvages et du miel sucré également. En bouche, les bretts prennent beaucoup le dessus sur le reste, peut-être être un peu trop. Pour une biere supposément complexe, c’est surprenemment simple avec cette brett dans ta face, un peu de sucre, et c’est tout.

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.
