Cloudy, white-gold with a big fluffy head. OK label and an interesting cap. Big, sweet, fruity tangerine aroma with health food store spices. Chemical, dry, starch water flavors with a little pepper at the end. Aftertaste reminds me of the way a new pair of sneakers smells - plastic, rubbery. Underwhelmed.

4/16/12. 12oz bottle. Clear golden pour (huh?) under a small off-white head that’s gone fast. Super spiced aroma, way too much coriander, with hints of citrus. Sweet citrus taste with orange and even touches of lime, again with bold spice character. Eh. PorterPounder (7970) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a murky dark golden-orange with a slight white head - light lacing. Fruit forward aroma with lemon and tangerine and a hint of yeast. Refreshing flavor, some lemony citrus notes, a touch of saffron spiciness, a touch of licorice. Mouthfeel has a very nice spritz to it. A nice summer refresher. skokott (42) - toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2012
Had a chance to try this at the NYC craft beer festival. It does tend to be a polarizing beer. Definitely stands out as unique. Crisp, light refreshing, orange rind, coriander, grass. Finishes clean and has a slight sweetness to it. r464 (2360) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Tart and fizzy with a white head. Citrus, banana, grass, yeast, and a lot of carbonation. Not bad, but not a standout.

Tasted at the NYC Craft Beef Festival. Hazy yellow pour, the nose caught me off guard. Smells like skunky, crystallized weed! Also some fennel, Good and Plenty candy, anise, yeasty, very complex!!! It’s light bodied with flavors of fresh mown grass, mint, sage, mouthwash (but in a good, herbal way) Very different and out of the box. pshorey (1) - New York, USA - MAR 4, 2012 does not count
Lighten up people. This is the strangest beer ever, but I like to think of it as "unique"! Even though I usually drink Barley Wines, Quadrupels and Imperial Stouts, this lighter beer is one of my favorites because it also has so much flavor.
It tastes like tea (white or yellow) with lemon and a touch of honey. Doesnt taste like a beer at all, light, pale yellow grey color. Has undertones of coriander, malt, hay and caramel. Earthyness and freshness similar to French Verveine tea. It has very little body, but enough maltyness, fruityness and texture to make it interesting on the palate.

From notes. First reviewed 2/12/2011. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
Out of the bottle Grey Lady pours a pale golden yellow color, hazy all the way through, with a rocky white cap that bubbles and fizzles away, disappearing after a few moments.
The smell is pleasant and refined. Sweet malts, orange rind, coriander, and a bit of other spices.
Sweet Belgian malt, with a touch of honey open the flavor. Cloves, coriander, and bit of soft orange rind add some depth. Spicy and lightly grassy on the back end without being overpowering.
Slightly crisp on the tongue, while the sweetness prevents it from drying out. Light to medium bodied.
This is simple and refreshing. This is the kind of beer that I like at a BBQ, to enjoy it and not need to think about it. auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - FEB 21, 2012
12oz Bottle. Aroma of salty female deodorant. Flavors are not much of an improvement. Messy soapy, detergent flavored beer with little resemblance to beer. Salty, sour, and thin, with some certain harshness. Offensive and undrinkable. cleverlobo (319) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 19, 2012
