Grimm Ales Batch #16: COLOR FIELD
Style: AMERICAN WILD ALE BREWED WITH FLOWERS
Strength: 5.2% ABV
Bitterness: 5 IBU’s
Color: 6 SRM
Color Field is an American wild farmhouse ale brewed with hibiscus, rose hips, and chamomile. Produced with a mixed culture fermentation, it pours a hazy pink color topped with a fluffy white head. Tart aromas of lemon, black pepper, and earthy, gently perfumed botanicals mingle with classic saison funk. The soft, refreshing acidity is balanced by a hint of floral sweetness. This beer is never boiled and never filtered.

Grimm Ales Batch #14: STILL LIFE
Style: TART APPLE GRISETTE
Strength: 3.8% ABV
Bitterness: 6 IBU’s
Color: 4 SRM
Grisette is a crushable, thirst-quenching historical Belgian ale originally brewed to refresh coal miners at the end of a long day. Still Life is our interpretation, brewed for the autumn season: a tart, funky farmhouse ale produced with a mixed culture fermentation. Red Jacket apple cider from the Finger Lakes region of New York lends seasonal flavor, while spelt provides a rustic grain character. This unboiled, unfiltered ale is dry hopped with German Hallertau and Czech Saaz.
