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!

Pours a clear gold with a tall white head. Aroma of spices and citrus. Taste follows-- very mild. Thin body. Just ok.

Bottle. Hazy gold in color with a small head. Aroma was citrus and spice, but really mild. Taste was really pleasant. To use a word from the description, it was "zesty".

This beer just works. Medium color and nice taste. When I’m in New England I always look for this beer to get me by

Very fruity, zesty aroma and even more so on first taste. Light bodied, dry finish. Doesn't linger much on the palate.

Bottle picked up for mom while she watched the girls. Really a fairly true to form witbier with some nice clove-like spice with a full mouthfeel but still very refreshing. Nice.

[Bottle] Cloudy yellow pour with about an inch of white foam on top. Notes of cinnamon, yeast, sweet wheat malts and lemon in the nose. Flavors of sweet cereal grains, lemon zest, fruity esters and lighter grass notes. Medium bodied. Not bad.

This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a nice looking hazy golden yellow color with a soft one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds leaving barely any lacing. Light carbonation is seen rising at a moderate pace. The smell had a nice sweet to spicy arrangement of peppercorn, slightly floral and a fresh cut grassiness wrapping it up nicely. The taste had a sweet bready with a light Belgian candied yeastiness arranging itself tightly with the sweet floral and grassy qualities. As it warms, sweet lemon runs in to blend nicely. A quick lemon aftertaste runs in to the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. Definitely a Summer pounder as the carbonation is fairly subdued. Overall, I say this was a light version of a witbier, flavorful but nothing remotely overbearing.

No aroma to speak of. Cloudy with straw color. not much head or lacing. Notes of spices, coriander cloves. sweeter finish, kind of dish watery tasting

Aroma is orange. Appearance is a slightly hazy golden colour. Taste is citrus with hints of spice.

Draft at Dewey’s in Clifton. Pours a hazy yellow-gold with a small white head. Notes of lemon citrus - and a lot of it - with wheat, mild herbs (not sure I can find any coriander, though), grass, dough, wet hay, and tangerine. Light-medium bodied, with a wheaty, fruity, barely tart mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Looks the part for a Belgian wit, maybe slightly darker. Otherwise, it’s not quite to style, but I liked it. I’d call it more of a lemony American wheat.
