Editor’s note: It can be hard to detect which Grisette you’ve had as the label doesn’t indicate if it’s spiced or citrusy. This edition has an addition of citrus peel, and less wheat than the regular edition. The label artwork is blue/purple.

harrisoni (17351) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle from the brewery drunk at home. Pale gold lasting white head. Saison aroma with some hop and some citrus. Slightly fuller and less soapy than the spiced version but as Ken says, it may not be quite as interesting as the spiced. I did like the pepper in the other one. The orange and lemon are muted, there, but not dominant. Good hops again, but I liked the spiced more. Wow Ken and I agree on a beer.

yngwie (16529) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle at Haand Festival 2012. It’s an unclear, orange-golden beer topped by a finger-thick, dense white head. The aroma has some wheat and pale malt, a good dash of citrus peel and Belgian saison yeast. Faintly spiced in the far back too, guess it’s the saison yeast adding some pepper.. The flavor has a balancing bitterness, it’s quite dry and pleasantly carbonated, with citrus peel, pale malts and a little peppery twist. Lasting fruity finish. A beer I’d certainly like to see as a regular. 130525
