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!

Hazy yellow pour with off-white head. Nose is citrus, herbals. Soapy citrus and herbal tea notes. Light body. Sticky finish. Kinda flat mellow and tangy.

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.

This is more of a ginger beer than a Belgian white. Herbs and floral aromas, tons of ginger on the nose. Taste is crisp and zesty, like an herb garden mixed with copious amounts of ginger. Overall, too much ginger for my taste.

From a bottle. Pours hazy gold with some particles floating around and a fizzy bubbly white head. Tastes like spice, dry pear and apple, club soda, light herb and citrus. Light body and low carbonation. Smells floral and like sweet herbs, cookie malts.

Can. Nose of heavy coriander and lemongrass, pours hazy pale yellow with a creamy, dense bright white head. Light body but not watery, touch of bread, lots of lemon juice and lemon peel, very smooth with supporting crispness, thankfully not coriander soup, but with a very distinct herbal-floral character that piques the interest and draws in for more. Zesty Snapple-like tea note, clean, super refreshing!

Cleaning off my phone, these are tasting notes from my August 2013 Asheville trip. Pretty unexciting wit, golden, cloudy, heavy spice component in the flavor as well as some citrus. Average.

Bottle shared at GBBF ’14, day 1, 12/08/14. Lightly hazed golden with a moderate off white covering. Nose is floral, spice, citric peel, marjoram. Taste comprises lemon rind, spice, bready notes, orange. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close. Ok for style but nothing I’d rush back for.
