A Note on This Beer
Missouri’s Side Project beats out Cantillon and Tree House as the #4 Ranked Brewery in the World on Untappd. And with one taste of their oaky, delicately tart Grisette Blend #6, you’ll instantly know why they’re so beloved.
Side Project focuses on 100% barrel-aged and fermented beers, and they mature Blend #6 in an oak foedre with Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus. The funky-sour character of these wild yeast strains give the Grisette a modern edge, with accents of white peach and a cleansing tartness.
Floral notes from European hops round out the edges of this grainy, tightly carbonated sipper, and it finishes delightfully dry with a touch of barnyard funk.
Obscure for centuries, the wheat-driven Grisette is like the Saison’s lighter, more refreshing cousin. Unveiling a bottle of this exceptional, oak-aged example is much more impressive than any party trick — you’ll baffle everyone, not only with your knowledge of the style, but with the fact that you’re gracious enough to share any of Side Project’s small-batch treasures.
Though “treasures” may be an understatement. Side Project has 7 of their brews on BeerBlackbook’s Top 100 Most Expensive Traded Beers list alongside other Wild Ale masters like 3 Fonteinen!
The rustic complexity of this Grisette could very well become the pièce de résistance of your collection, and with the brewery’s extremely limited batches, this could be your only chance to secure a bottle.
Rated 4.20, Blend #6 is currently tied for highest-rated Grisette on Untappd!
