Grisette Gamay (Foeder Fermented Grisette w/ Gamay)
Grisette Gamay / Foeder Fermented Grisette w/ Gamay
Bellwoods Brewery | 500ml | 4.4%
Grisette was the first of its kind to emerge at Bellwoods's Hafis Rd. brewery, earning the esteemed title of their very first beer fermented entirely in oak (aka The Foeder Pyramid™). It's a low ABV, refreshing sipper dry-hopped with French Strisselspalt hops (a variety that's as fun to say as it is delicious), that balances subtle brett, light acidity, and sky-high drinkability.
A small portion of this version was conditioned on Gamay grapes, and then blended with unfruited Grisette for lightness and balance.
The beer itself is dry and slightly acidic, with soft brett aromatics, and complementary herbal, floral, and citrus notes.
