COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The name "Grey Lady" comes from the nickname for the often-foggy island for which it is brewed. This hazy, Belgian-style Wit emits a complex, earthy nose with sophisticated notes. The sift, malty mid-palate has wicked good zesty hints but gives way to a delectably dry finish. Quenching!

rougeau13 (2132) - Richmond, Texas, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Bottle. Hazy yellow-orange with a small white head that rapidly disappears. Aroma of lemon, wheat, coriander and sourdough bread. Taste wheaty and yeasty with a thin citrus fruitiness, kind of like watered down OJ. Light-medium bodied and smooth. Decent refresher.

onceblind (5152) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 28, 2011
Mostly clear, bright gold with a thin fading white head. Earthy coriander and wheaty aroma, with a tint of lemon citrus. Taste was freshly lemon with a big earthy wheat and coriander tone. Light on the spice. Pretty citrusy (lemon), but is missing something that is supposed to make an excellent Wit. Can’t put my finger on it. Dang enjoyable, but pretty average.

rosenbergh (7899) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 24, 2011
Draught at the Bukowski Tavern, Boston, MA.
Hazy yellow colour with tiny white head. Citrus (Toilet Duck kind of citrus) and wheat in aroma. Quite fresh after all. Wheat and citrus in flavour. Citrus is somewhat chemical. Refreshing but with artificial notes. Citrus lemon lime all over.

jgb9348 (4972) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 23, 2011
Hazy blonde coloured body with a super-fast dying white head, just like soda. Aroma of corn, wheat, coriander seed, spice and a touch of flowers. Light-bodied; Assertive coriander seed and corn flavour at first with a touch of light spices and wheat. Aftertaste shows a bit of spices, a little wheat and a nice orange and lemon note. Overall, an okay beer with some good flavours, but not enough complexity and depth to be really good. Nice to sample in the hot weather, for sure. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 20-July-2011 sampled in Upstate New York in New Paltz, New York on 23-July-2011.

Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 21, 2011
Bottle with Carla. Pours a hazy yellow/gold with quickly dispersing white bubbles. Smells lightly of lemon and wheat. Tastes strongly of lemon with hints of wheat.

kassner (1397) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2011
Maybe it was the heat, but this beer was great on tap at Mad mex, lemon yellow, no head cloudy and pure citrus with butter notes underneath. Smooth as could be.

Bottle from Ryan & Casey’s. Murky gold body with medium head. Nose of fruits, citrus. Taste is also fruity, oranges, hops and spices. Nice fruity finish.

hopscotch (9954) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2011
Bottle… Pours lightly hazed and yellow with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Good retention. Aromatically, white bread, sugar cookie and a moderate coriander really standout. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and lively carbonation. The flavor is reminiscent of a gose – pale malt, clove and coriander with a touch of acidity and a pinch of salt. Crisp, mostly clean finish.
