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!

Bottled version. Pours out a hazy medium yellow with nice white head. Aroma is citrus and spice. Body and flavor is medium citrus and spice. A good solid, refreshing brew from Cisco.

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.

Drake (8442) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2010
22 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA, on 5/2/10. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a medium head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of clove, other spices, citrus, yeast and soap. The taste is citrus, bread and faint spices and caramel. Medium bodied. Decent.

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 (3769) - 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 Iíve 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.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 3, 2010
Bomber. Pours hazy gold, very thin white head. Kind of surprising that the head is so tiny, since it appears to be a very yeasty beer (by the sediments at the bottle of the bottle & the aroma). Aroma is yeasty, skunky (hops), and fruity. This beer is terribly non-carbonated, to a point of being offensive. Pretty weak yeasty/malty flavor. Not a drain pour, but I wouldnít seek this out again. I canít remember how much I paid for this bottle, but whatever the price, it was too much.

coldbrewky (1423) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - APR 30, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2012 I shake my head and wonder If I am getting myself into something bad. much like any movie that utilizes the title as a tag line in a film, the use of "Wicked Good" portents disaster and strangeness. Nose of hops yeast and a bit of funk. I will not call it quenching. I will not call it zesty. I will call it an end of run bottle that should not have been shipped. Solid murky pour with some serious chunks floating about. Potentially a bad bottle but the fella said they just got it on the shelves. Hmmmm. Re-rate 1/1/11. Draft growler from half time provided by the host of the New years extravaganza. Confirmed, the Bomber was well past the prime since it was a summer seasonal. Lemonhead gumdrop body. In other words, tangy but sweet about the edges. Light bodied with a thin crisp yeasty head. Sharp decided finish. A great one to start the night with. Up from a 2.8. (5,2,6,3,12).

TheBeerGod (5229) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2010
Bottle. Hazy golden body with a short white head. Aroma is lemon, grains, light spice (almost a hint of cinnamon), and yeast notes. Taste is sweet malts, soft lemon, grains, dusty yeast, and mild spices. Body is light and very bubbly with a strong, prickly carbonation. Ends with more spices, light yeast notes, sweet malt, hints of lemon and wheat.
