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!

[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

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.

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.

Bottle, gold pour, white head, nose is lacking, taste is awful though, i haven’t said that about a beer in a long time, but this is bad. mouthwash, pepper, lemon, soap, ugh.
