COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bright clear pale gold beer, big fluffy white head. Palate is light and a little dry. Fine carbonation. Mild floral yeast and very light malt. Whisper of citrus. Finishes dry and a little crisp. It’s fine but I just don’t get this sub style of Saisons. Intrinsically dull.

Can. Hazy yellow with a large frothy white head. Good retention and lace. Saison yeast; white pepper, fruit esters. Citrus, flowers, hay, light grain and doughy. Light body, light sweetness, fizzy carbonation, watery texture. Ok session beer all though the fizzy carbonation is a bit annoying.
