COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Grisette Blonde is a pale ale that is very refreshing in summer. When drunk at a moderate temperature, it releases aromas of a richness that it is seldom found in other beers of this strength. Its head is smooth and white. It has a light yellow colour.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - MAY 16, 2005
Bottle from Open All Hours, Keswick. Pleasantly quaffable Belgian Blond. Miles better than Leffe, with better hop character, and good aroma from the yeast.

Bottled. Hazy pale orange colour, mediumsized white head. Citric aroma with hints of yeast and hoppy bitterness. Flavour is mainly fruity with notes of yeast and a bit bitter hoppy finish. Mouthdrying.

Tall frothy white head, hazy orange golden body. Yeast, citrus, fruit and straw in the typical-blonde aroma. Flavor is quite thin and watery with little fruit, yeast and hay tones.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - APR 11, 2004
A light Golden color with a huge rocky white head. A grassy scent with some mild spice. The flavor is odd, unfortunately the spice reminds me a bit of an aftershave, this isn't a good thing in a beer.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JAN 29, 2004
Bottled. Blonde with a large white head. Bitter/sweet with medium bitter finish, nothing wrong with this but nothing remarkable either.

chriso (7396) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2004
Bottled (250ml). Pale gold colour. Grassy aroma with some yeast. Clean and fresh, but no great complexity. Essentially this is a good quaffer. But you'd need to buy a few if you were quaffing - not only a Belgian beer under 5%, but in 250ml bottles. Needless to say, this one didn't last long. Although this is badged as a St Feuillen beer, the latest edition of Tim Webb's book suggests it is contract brewed at Heineken's Affligem plant. Incidentally, as well as being a small warbler-like bird, grisette was also 19th century French slang for a sexually active woman of the lower orders. The closest current UK colloquial equivalent is probably slapper.
