COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Grisette Blanche belongs to the rich family of Belgian white beers. It is therefore very refreshing in summer. However, it remains a full-bodied, savoury beer offering lots of contrast. Its head is typical of wheaty beers - creamy and compact - with an opaque, hazy appearance

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2011
Draft at Mekong. Properly thick haze, very slightly darker yellow than some other wits. Aroma is grainy wheat. Flavor is a match. Some very faint spice notes on the finish, but more yeast driven than the traditional coriander. No apparent citrus notes either. Although maybe not a traditional wit in some ways, it was a refreshing wheat beer that worked with the hot weather outside.

KyotoLefty (6139) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle at the Great Japan Beer Festival, Osaka, 2011. A typical Belgian Wit, very spicy, with orange. Sweeter than it should be. Not bad, but not really a good wit—too sweet, too much spice, but ok.

ekstedt (5317) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2011
Bottle (25 cl) from La Marché de Nathalie Brasserie, Bouillon, Belgium. Cloudy milk golden, large rocky white head. Overwhelming spicy aroma with soapy and perfumy coriander notes, and with a presumably nice phenolic and estery yeast character hovering in the background. Medium bodied and soft. Dry with low bitterness. This could propbably be a very good Wit with more reasonable amount of spices. Right now, it’s just a mess.

Sevenlee (1253) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JUN 14, 2011
Pours a cloudy yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma is malty, fruity with some hints of spices. Taste is orangy with some coriander and wheatiness. Texture is quite watery. Not too bad.

hawthorne00 (2351) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 19, 2010
250ml bottle, about 8C. Cloudy yellowy orange with a tightly-packed white head. Very high bead. Aroma of lemon sherbet, cloves, white pepper, coriander seeds. Light-bodied but a bit creamy in texture. Taste has (mainly sweet, some sour) lemon pudding, light dough, spices at the end. A very good Wit.

rosenbergh (6474) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2010
250 ml bottle. Brewed by Brasserie St-Feuillien. From bierzwerg.de.
Hazy yellow golden colour with small white head. Sweetish aroma with wheat, raisins, coriander, orange, yeast and citrus. Flavour is more sour with wheat, citrus, yeast and flour. Drinkable and easy Witbier.

piscator34 (1946) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 19, 2010
Draft sample from Académie De La Bière. Pale yellow with haze and strong carbonation. Aromas are of orange, wheat, and mild coriander. Fairly subdude in the mouth, but the typical witbier coriander/citrus/wheat combo is still qutie apparent. Light bodied. A bit sucked out, but fairly well balanced. One could do much worse.
