Intro: A 1 pint .9 fl. oz. bottle, 2017 vintage. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: An extremely light straw golden colour with a big three finger white head that had decent retention while leaving only sparse to no lacing.
Aroma: Brett, barnyard funk, tropical stone fruit, peach, apricot with hints of lemon and hay.
Taste: Brett, funk, wheat, grapefruit rind, hay, grass and a touch of light peach.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: A nice and refreshing Grisette, although I did find that the funk went better with the aroma than the taste.
