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

Hazy golden with a solis white head - aroma of wheat and citrus with some perfume/soap in the back - tastes of wheat and some citrus, with an unpleasent taste of perfumed soap - and the soap continues in the finish - this was not good

Foffern (1386) - Bodø, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy dull yellow colour with a medium whipped eggwhite-like head. Fine aroma of grass, lemon, nice coriander and some belgian yeast. Has a light flavour of hay and coriander, and a nice lemon touch in the end, and is a bit dry. Has a slick mouthfeel, and a light bitterness. The aroma is nice but the flavour is more careful. A decent witbier.

tfredvik (1323) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2012
Pours a typical wit body: cloudy, yellow/whitish body with a huge, white, somewhat creamy head that is long-lived and leaves big patches of foam on the glass. The aroma is quite strong and pleasant with citrus, spices, and yeast. What makes this stand out from the crowd is the prominent and pleasant sweet component that is blended in with the dry dustiness. Light sweet and light acidic taste, with very little bitterness. Sweet fruity flavours back up the regular spicy/yeasty/citric stuff. The finish is long and dry, the body is medium. A crisp and refreshing wit with extra sweet aroma and flavours (but not actually that much sweetness in the taste).
[25 cl bottle brewed by St. Feuillien, 5.5 % ABV, enjoyed 1 year before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Online]

ClubGonzo (4551) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle. Pours a cloudy straw-yellow body with a large half-creamy white head. Loads of citric tones and coriander in the aroma, bordering on soapy and pungent but with nice undertones of apricot which saves the day. Nice. Taste is also rich with coriander and citrus, with some wheat and mild grainy tones in the back. Hints of rosewater and apricot. Straightforward and fresh, yet with some complexity, with a slightly fizzy palate and medium body. Good drinking, this is definitely a wit I can like.

gunnar (6200) - Sandnes, NORWAY - SEP 25, 2012
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat. Pours hayzy hayish yellow with a huge frothy white head. Aroma is recognizable wit, citrus, wheat with some coriander and yeast. Taste is smooth, with a lot less character then suggested by the nice aroma, even though some nice citrus and spicy end.

maekchu (2607) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 23, 2012
Draught at World Craft Beer Tasting in Osaka. Tart, perfumey nose, maybe a bit too much. Vary pale, chardonnay-like color, with some floaties. Bland initial flavor, maybe some minor notes of sour apple; sweetness intensifies in mid palate and becomes a bit cloying; final produces some sort of chemical sweetness. Crisp palate. Okay.

larsga (6621) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 16, 2012
Big white head. Hazy opaque yellow body with carbonation. Fruity orangey floral aroma with mealy candy notes. Dry-sweet orangey coriander taste with spicy herbal notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, chalky mouthfeel. Dryish coriander and oranges aftertaste with papery herbal notes. Nice and highly drinkable, full-flavoured. (0.25l bottle, wine monopoly, web order. 5.5% alcohol, brewed by St. Feuillien.)
