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.

When I think of a hazy thirst quencher, this one is that should set the standard. It isn’t heavy or over the top - just full flavored and delicious. I like it.

Appearance: very light gold, a little hazy, with a huge, fluffy, meringue of bright white head that lasts forever. Aroma: sweet and crackery, with notes of champagne, citrus zest, graham cracker, cracked black pepper. Taste: yeasty, with graham crackery sweetness, light clove, marmalade and light honey, with just a hint of funk. Finish: a bit of champagne dryness, with just a hint of astringency under a lingering, lightly spiced sweetness. Notes: Wouldn’t have thought this was a saison, as it lacked much of the traditional horseblanket funk. It did seem like an outstanding Belgian style ale. There was a nice bit of sweetness, but the light, zesty and dry palate, as well as the spicy yeast, kept things very drinkable and refreshing.
