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!

Lighten up people. This is the strangest beer ever, but I like to think of it as "unique"! Even though I usually drink Barley Wines, Quadrupels and Imperial Stouts, this lighter beer is one of my favorites because it also has so much flavor. It tastes like tea (white or yellow) with lemon and a touch of honey. Doesnt taste like a beer at all, light, pale yellow grey color. Has undertones of coriander, malt, hay and caramel. Earthyness and freshness similar to French Verveine tea. It has very little body, but enough maltyness, fruityness and texture to make it interesting on the palate.

Pours a hazy yellow kind of unfiltered cloudy. Taste is citrus fresh aroma. A nice Wit Beer. Light, crisp and pleasantly pleasing on palate.

Poured from a bottle at durgin Park in Bosto, Massachusetts. In fact I cleaned out their stock by nights end;0 Very hazy banana in color. Two finger head with fairly good retention. minor lacing very spicy aroma with notes of lemon and pepper. Exceptional citrus taste, slightly sweet, slightly bitter with minimal aftertaste. Not at all overpowering and excellent drinkability.

22 oz. bottle served in tumbler- poured a murky yellow with heavy orange tints when held to a light source, thin head disappeared within one minute, hearty carbonation of tiny bubbles. Aroma of oranges, yeast, wheat, malt, and notes of coriander and pepper- very, VERY, interesting! Hits the mouth with a high-thin-body, malt is there but you are taken for a journey to the land of sweet fruit (young pineapple and mangos come to mind), middle continues that journey just fine, finish thanks you for the sip you have just taken and gives you a token to take another sip along with a note of lavender (that’s harder than HELL to create, trust me) along with a solid, crisp finish. The Granholm and OBAMA voters give it a 5, but I give it a 9 !!! It is near perfect for the style, if you don’t agree, please ship one in the top 10 to me. Thank you. You will get nothing back.

Tasted at the NYC Craft Beef Festival. Hazy yellow pour, the nose caught me off guard. Smells like skunky, crystallized weed! Also some fennel, Good and Plenty candy, anise, yeasty, very complex!!! It’s light bodied with flavors of fresh mown grass, mint, sage, mouthwash (but in a good, herbal way) Very different and out of the box.

Excellent summer brew, pours slighty hazy, golden color, slight aroma, smells like a good beer. Smooth texture, clean, crisp taste, light body, earthy tone to it, some complexity as well. Average carbonation, smooth, dry, clean finish as well. Excellent Belgian Wit, right on style.

Bottled version. Pours out a hazy medium yellow with nice white head. Aroma is citrus and spice. Body and flavor is medium citrus and spice. A good solid, refreshing brew from Cisco.

Love this beer -- the coriander, almost anise notes, simply do it for me. This, of course, is a highly personal view. Tried it one night with a few others whites and, hands down, this one worked.

Pours hazy gold into a tumbler. Bright white micro head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Mild citrus and spice aromas. Crisp and funky with a lasting, slightly watered spiced orange finish. Best I’ve had from Cisco so far.

This one caught me by surprise. Not exceptionally highly rated and not widely available, but a very good wit! Cloves and citrus zest and a light and velvety body to this one. More sweet citrus than most of this style. Finish is excellent. I think this is one of my new favorite witbiers.
