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!

Bomber. Light straw color with thin head. Picked up floral hops notes. Not a bad beer, just not my style.

Aroma of lemon, slight bubble gum and orange peel. spice, lavender, chamomile, and fresh cut wheat. Medium to light bodied with a moderately spicy palate.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2010
Bomber. Hazy golden-ish with small head. Aroma is yeasty, earthy hops, light spice, pretty simple despite the description. Taste is wit sweet, American style, with noticeable yeast and medium hops. An average American (I mean Belgian?) wit that tries admirably but falls short overall, like most of the beers of this nationality in this style, if you catch my drift.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 21, 2010
Draft @ Logan "brewpub" - vibrant yellow with faint haze and razor thin white head; sharp minerally lemons, stale grain, lemon juice and dry hay; drinks quite raw and lemony as well; fruit trumps any spices and overall reminds me of watered down lemon juice; yup

obguthr (3653) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 27, 2010
Canned vegetables and anise aroma. Hazy yellow, thin white head. Orange peel, coriander, and lemon flavor, mild DMS. Medium bodied. Smells pretty bad, but the DMS is not as noticeable on the palate. Not as light as most witbiers I’ve had. Very flavorful, slightly infected.

koopa (338) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2010
Appearance: Cloudy dull straw yellow with a decent head, retention, and lacing. Smell: Coriander, wheat, yeast, orange peel, a firm touch of clove and smidgen of ginger. Its on the spicier side rather than the citrus side of the wit bier scale. Taste: Wheat and orange peel up front with yeast, clove, and ginger following strongly. Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Not terrible but definitely the category that could use the most improvement as it comes off a bit too thin for my liking. Drinkability: Light bodied with a good amount of carbonation make this one a breeze to down. Refreshingly thirst quenching. This is a fine American play on a Belgian Wit.
