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.

From 12oz can. Hazy white with really nice rocky white head. Musty spicy nose. Crisp spice, malt undertone, well balanced palate. Well done by a fine PA brewer.

Dr.Drei (27) - New York, USA - JUL 24, 2014
This was poured from a can at home in a tulip glass. It has a lemony and herbal aroma, reminiscent of Brooklyns Sorachi Ace. Pours hazy gold with a nice head. Light sweetness with mild bitterness coupled with light sourness such as one would expect from a Farmhouse ale are present. A bit dry and has a bitter finish. Overall, this is a very nice beer that I will definitely buy again.

Nice saison, or grissette, or whatever were calling these hay and citrus farm ales these days. Pours cloudy golden with great head and lacing. Light floral yeast. Hay and citrus indeed. Light sour finish and note of funk. Tap at Black Squirrel.

jdjuice (500) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - JUN 27, 2014
A nice, easy drinking beer with a little bit of richness to round it out. Fruity, slightly nutty, with a light spiciness to make things interesting.
