Clear golden colour with a smooth, white head. Fair head retention. Nice lacing.
Lightly sweet malt aroma. Some fruitiness. Great.
Light fruitiness. Good spice and some malt. Extremely refreshing.
Medium-light body with crisp, refreshing carbonation. Good.
A tasty refreshing beer.

Pours a gold colour, lacking in cloud which I would have expected. White head, really rather dense and sticks around nicely.
Rubbery nose, with nice fruit characters and lots of spice. Anise, banana and clove, touch of vanilla. Decent, but a little bit lacking maybe.
Spicy and fruity on the nose with a touch of funk. Slightly metallic at times, all very subtle with slight spice and slight funk. Just a hint of banana towards the back. Not bad at all.
Nice texture, with slight carbonation but a bit bitty as well to create a solid body that still goes down easily.
Very drinkable, has the hallmarks of a big Belgian ale without the booziness.

On-tap at the GABS festival in Melbourne. No Grisette style on BA, but it falls in a similar niche to a Saison, hence the classification.
Pours a pale golden colour, quite clear, with a white head formed solidly of large bubbles that crackly and pop their way out of existence. Lace is patchy as a result. Lots of fine carbonation. Looks pretty good.
Nose is fine in a generic Belgian sort of way. Slightly spicy with a hint of rubber and some banana esters. Overall, it's clean, but not huge, and not overly exciting.
Light grain on the front with some faint funky characters. This develops into a wheat-beer-like bubblegum character further on, with a clean but smooth finish. Very little crispness on the finish, allowing the rubbery character to come through in the aftertaste. Feel is clean and clear, and gives a polished professional edge to the beer.
Overall, this is very drinkable. I can't say categorically what a Grisette is after having tried this beer—in many respects it feels like a saison or a Belgian Pale—but that's not a bad thing. This still feels solidly made.
