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.

A bit sour, some fruity notes, a mild straw background, and some yeasty spiciness. Pretty good.

On tap at NOVA Summer Brewfest in Bull Run Regional Park in Centreville, VA. Cloudy , pastel yellow with a near-white head and good lacing. Aroma of spice, pepper and light lemon. Taste of spice, pepper and light lemon. Medium/light body and medium/low carbonization. Finally, a "refreshing beer" that does make me want to pour it out and grab a lemonade. It's similar to a saison, but lighter and brighter tasting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice light and refreshing beer. It has a light spice aroma with some lemon. The flavor is slightly sour and nicely balanced. Very good for the hot weather.

Can shared at chriso’s Post-GBBF Shindig 2014 - London. Pours lightly hazy pale yellow with a creamy white head. The nose holds crispy wheat and lemon, with some accents of soft dough. Light sweet flavor with notes of yeast, sweet lemon. Light bodied with average carbonation and airy texture. Lightly tangy to finish with more sweet lemon, light dough and wheat. Nice.

can. Hazy pale golden with one finger head. Pretty average take on a saison. Light body and rather mild spicing. Would like a bit more flavor.

I would sleep with this beer, Aroma is malt, hop, citrus, wheat. Taste is the same. Good flavor which isn’t too sweet; well balanced. Spice kicks in as well as it gets malty on the finish. Sticky on the back end. Sessionable beyond belief.
