Grisette is a Belgian style ale which was originally brewed in the Hainaut province to be the beer of the miners in the area, just as Saison was the beer of the farmers. It was lighter than Saison and frequently contained wheat as well as barley malt (as does the Sly Fox version). The name is derived from the French word for "gray," referring to both the drab factory frocks worn by the young women (the grisettes) who doled out pints as the men exited from the mines, and also the color of the cobblestone rock being mined.

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Ar: Banana and peach - clove - a touch of bubblegum. Ap: Cloudy pale gold - large white head with very good retention, leaving a thick cap of lacing and a trail of foam along the sides of the glass. T: Bright peach up front, with a punch of acidity coming right behind - pleasant pils malt graininess - banana and herbal hops, with a low bitterness - finish is more peach and a wisp of malt. P: Medium body with high carbonation - finish is dry. O: Fruity and refreshing, just like a saison should be - really nice beer, tasty and well-made.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. can from State Line Liquors. It pours a hazy dark yellow with a nice white head. It has a spicy, floral nose with a bit of anise. Flavor is a bit wanting though. A dull shadow of the nose with an almost aspirin like bitterness. Light to medium body with a lingering finish. A little on the meh side and made me want to hit up a Dupont Saison.

Nephilium (1701) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Mild wheat aroma, pours a hazy light straw with a white head. The wheat flavor is there, a little less pronounced then in a wit beer. Light bodied, with a touch of lemon. Very easy drinking, with just a touch of bitterness in the finish.
