Hellbent Sour Plum Grisette
No, Grisette is not the maid in a Victor Hugo novel (yeah that’s right, we read books). It’s a close cousin to the Saison, originally consumed by miners in Belgium, close to the French border. The Grisette’s light, tart, and mildly fruity body lends itself perfectly to our sour version with plums. A little bit sour, just fruity enough, and an almost Gose-like finish, keeps this hybrid true to style, but still delivers something new. So treat yourself like Donna Meagle and Tom Haverford. If you don’t know who those two people are, then spend some of this latest lockdown period watching Parks and Rec, and drinking a sour plum grisette out of a fancy glass, or a Mason jar.
