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!

TheBeerGod (5341) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2010
Bottle. Hazy golden body with a short white head. Aroma is lemon, grains, light spice (almost a hint of cinnamon), and yeast notes. Taste is sweet malts, soft lemon, grains, dusty yeast, and mild spices. Body is light and very bubbly with a strong, prickly carbonation. Ends with more spices, light yeast notes, sweet malt, hints of lemon and wheat.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Sampled during MN Gathering II in Maplewood, MN and shared by beastiefan2k. From a 22-oz bottle pours a hazy golden straw brew with a nice size white head that has some nice retention. Aroma of lemon zest, coriander, multi-grain malt with wheat, a hint of clove and some white pepper. Taste is medium bodied with flavors of golden grain malt, a hint of banana esters, coriander, orange zest and some light clove. Finish is semi-dry with some floral and coriander aftertaste. A little more on the dry side to most other Witbiers but still pretty decent.

kramer (5105) - 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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5095) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2011
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a slightly hazy yellow-golden color with a medium sized soapy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was faint citrus and must with a light vague spicy undertone. The flavor was tangy orange and lemon with light undertones of must, pepper and cardboard. The finish was short with lemon and yeast. Medium body. Pleasant.

EithCubes (5089) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 24, 2014
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!

notalush (5000) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Can - looks pretty good - hazy gold with a frothy head - very dry and kind of uncommon for a wit - it’s a spiced wheat, all right, but it tastes like sage, clove, white pepper - not much else going on character wise aside from the strong spice character - meh.

jackl (4980) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Tap at the airport in Boston, MA. Light golden color with orange highlights. The nose is sweet, some banana with a spicy ginger finish. The taste is moderately light and sweet, with a slightly bready finish. The palate’s watery, a slightly wet finish. Overall, OK, one of the better beers I’ve had at an airport :)
