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!

Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a glass. Pours hazy light orange with small white head. Aroma is coriander, medium/light body, medium carbonation, and little small lacing. Taste is coriander, some graininess, and some orange. Just below average for me.

12 oz bottle. Not to bad of a wit. The fruitiness is a little strong. I could drink a couple of them. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured a hazy yellowish color from the bottle with aromas of light wheat, coriander, and some ginger. Flavors were the same a light lemon thrown in as well, OK basic wit beer.

Erzengel (1939) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 28, 2013
Rating from 2010. Vielen Dank an Micha! Das Bier ist gelb-orange und ziemlich trüb. Sehr CO²-arm. Der Antrunk ist frisch und leicht hefig. Zum Mittelteil hin wird das Bier leicht muffig und etwas fruchtig-zitronig, wie es sich für ein belgisches Witbier gehört. Der Nachgeschmack ist aber etwas flach-muffig und leicht metallisch-merkwürdig, dazu ganz leicht herb. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine leicht-metallische Note. --> nicht mein Bier - muffig, laff, sogar etwas unangenehm!
--> 6+9+3+6 = 6,90

Bottle from total wine in Orlando. Pours hazy as promised. Thin head. Aroma is coriander and ginger. Taste is coriander and ginger. With a ginger finish. Looking back at the description, I am missing the "complex, earthy nose with sophisticated notes." I think you could use that to describe motor oil as well... but hey... it’s still beer? At 4.5%, just barely. The comparison in other ratings to ginger ale is apt. Still, not an entirely unpleasant quaff.

12 ox bottle at Broom’s Light Up Night party. If you like ’em dry you might enjoy this. Very little spice and dry as a desert. Somewhat or a lot pretentious.

Can into tulip thanks to Cisco rep at Beachwood BBQ Seal Beach who just happened to be eating at the same time I was. Light yellow with thin white head. Aroma is coriander, clove, citrus zest, wheat malt. Flavor is similar with earthy bitter undertones. Spice notes are very strong. Finish is crisp and dry. Light bodied and thin feeling with moderate carbonation. Not something I’d go back to.

The Sampler, Brooklyn 12oz ($3.50): Yeah, I overpaid for this mediocre beer. In any case, light yellow pour with white head. Aroma is coriander. Taste is pretty much ginger ale with more coriander in it. I never had a beer that tastes so perfectly like ginger ale. Would be a great intro beer for some people I suppose.

Has a hazy light yellow pour. Aroma caught me off guard based in color - very strong citrus and cinnamon. Taste is a mix of a sweet citrus (orange and lemon) like a summer beer but also some Oktoberfest qualities with some pumpkin and light cinnamon.
