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!

Draft at Deweyís 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, itís not quite to style, but I liked it. Iíd call it more of a lemony American wheat.

Pours clear yellow. Smell is full, citrussy, fresh yet very heavy. Taste is coreander, some lemon notes as well. Eeasy drinkable, soft carbo. Ok

Bottle. Aroma is Belgium yeast and lemon. Taste Belgium yeast, grass, apple, windex, and lemon. Very thin and light. Needs work.

Really, it looks ok and smells ok. Taste was terrible. Ended up dumping it. Just this weird tingy zip on the tongue.

Poured a hazy yellow color with not much of a head. Aroma has lots of wheat and lemon. Taste is slightly tart and with lots of lemon. Interesting balance. Aftertaste is also tart with a bit of soap and lemons again. Overall its ok.

A nice, cloudy wit, spicy aroma, healthy golden color. Maybe a little heavy on the spice in the mouth, but overall a pleasant taste: malty and some bitterness. Mouthfeel was nice, rich and had almost a creaminess to it. Solid beer.

I had no idea this was a wit beer. Didnít state it on the bottle and certainly didnít taste of it. Not a good beer at all

Aro: Not much aroma, none of the spicy and orange notes I expect App: very little head retention, with amber gold color, little carbonation. Flavor: Orange comes through the front, and then it fades to a soapy mess, followed by another hint of ripe oranges. After taste is slight orange, but almost soapy. MF: Light body, with minimal carbonic bite that dissipates quickly. OI: mediocre beer, not even close to style. This would be better presented as a blonde ale with a fruit base. I am not getting any of the spices. Not flawed per se, but just average.
