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!

Smells just like a Belgian wit. Flavor is fairly heavy on the orange with a little bit of wheat. A pretty solid beer.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Appearance: Pours like straw with a touch of chill haze under a soft white head which fades into a soft layer with a bubbly collar.
Nose: Coriander and dill. Candied ginger. Lemon peel, curacao oranges, and grains of paradise. Spicy whole grains. Cracked peppercorns. All the aromas are full integrated.
Palate: Medium-light weight but the flavors are definitely not lacking. Candied ginger and gingerbread. The ginger lingers and tingles atop my tongue. Lemon rind along the edges. Slightly drying. Sunflower seeds in the middle. Coriander and grains of paradise in the back and in the breath.
Final Thoughts: A solid Belgian White that is easily quaffable and easily forgettable.

Very light golden colored pour. Small, quickly, receding white head. No lacing. Huge fruit and malt aroma. Some lemony goodness as well. Very lemony taste with a bit of cereal. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle with Larry. Very nicely done and well balanced. Went terrific with thai food.

kramer (4688) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear pale straw straw body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is quite interesting and really complex for a Wit. There’s a ton of herbal and spicy notes, I almost wondered if there was some tea leaves in here, but there’s no mention of it. I really like this aroma. The flavor is a little lighter and less interesting than the aroma, but it’s still really spicy and nice with a fairly heavy citrusy note. Light wheat base with a crisp finish. Light bodied with fine fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice simple Wit, much better than average for the style.

Bought a 6-pack and couldn’t get through 12oz. Spicy, herbal, orange peel aroma, yet the taste was somewhere between vomit and herbal tea somehow. Definitely an interesting brew, just not for me!

Flowery, not impressive. Watery very blandish. Kind of tastes like a flowery/herbal tea instead of a beer.

Interesting witbier. Citrus and coriander nose. More dark spices and citrus on palate. Give it decent rating due to its nice refreshing finish
