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!

poured a pale yellow body with a thin white head that had no retention. Aroma had some nice coriander notes a mild hint of citrus, and a delicate sweet malt base. While the flavor did have a nice spice profile the tangy notes from the citrus seemed a bit over powering. Finish was smooth and easy to drink. Just okay.

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.

Theydon_Bois (8759) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2014
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.

12 oz bottle: Pours clear, light yellow-gold with a white head. Fruit and lemon aroma. Yeasty, lemon/citrus malt taste. Interesting but not a home run to me.

GBBF Day 1. Bottle share. Hazy gold beer, small white head. Palate is light and crisp and semi dry. Minerals. Mild malts. Nice lemon that reminds me of Earl Grey, but I guess that is the power of suggestion and association. Touch of orangey basil Light crisp finish. Very light and tasty.

notalush (4872) - 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.

Sampled @ GBBF. Bottle shared. Hazy pale yellow color, small white head. Smell and taste are a bit weird, lightly grainy, wheat, yeasty, slightly bitter, a weird kind of herbal fruitiness. Hmm, don’t really like it. Drinkable though.
