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!

From Bottle. Poured yellow. nice fluffy white head. Aroma was of spiced citrus. Flavor started with malts then moved into citrus and spices. Slightly sour finish that I really enjoyed.

rocbyter (1953) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Light crisp grain aroma. Cloudy golden color with a small white head. Light tangy malt beginning that gets sweet in the finish and develops a coriander flavor.

adnielsen (10068) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2011
Bottle @ home. Moderately cloudy, yellow-orange appearance with a small white head. Fairly spicy, floral, yeasty, mild citrusy, bready wheat malty nose. Spicy, a little tangy, floral and earthy, lemon, light wheat malty flavor. Almost like when you inhale air freshener after spraying a room. Iím not feeling it.

annunz123 (924) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Pretty faint aroma with malt, yeast, and citrus. Sweet flavor with some spice, especially cinnamon, and maybe some mint in the finish. Not as flavorful as a lot of white beers, but still really good.

nick76 (4314) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2011
The aroma is slightly off-putting with sour fruit, stale bread, grass, spice, and light vinegar. The appearance is pale gold with a light haze and thin head. The taste is not like the aroma. It is actually unique and pleasant with sweet fruit, bread, spice, and a touch of citrus soft drink. The palate is thin. Overall not much to this but itís interesting.

rougeau13 (2190) - 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 (5412) - 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. Canít put my finger on it. Dang enjoyable, but pretty average.

rosenbergh (8527) - 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 (5092) - 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.

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.
