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.

A - Pours cloudy, light blond/yellow color, light bubbly head.
S - Clean and citrus/lemon/orange. I can smell the coriander which gives it that citrus note.
T - Has a hefe fizziness. Clean lemon flavor with hints of sweet malts progressively after the citrus taste.
M - Thin and fizzy yet milky or silky.
D - Great session beer. I am not a fan of wheat beers and this one impressed me. Great well balanced beach beer : ).

Hazy yellow-colored beer, extremely lively carbonation, and a typically-Cisco massive & creamy head. Smell is all lemony/orange and spice...it's fantastic. Tastes just like it smells, heavier on the lemon. This is amazing beer. Super-refreshing, this would be a perfect beer to pair with some seafood. This might turn into my go-to beer for the season.

Cisco Brewers are on the island of Nantucket (a/k/a The Grey Lady), off the coast of Massachusetts.
Looks to me like Cisco has been doing a graphic overhaul recently. I bought this 22 oz bottle from amongst a batch of recent bottlings of a several of their brews. I've found that my experience with Cisco has been up and down, and i believe that the key is freshness. I've enjoyed nearly all of their offerings so long as the bottle hasn't been sitting around the store for too long.
The label identifies the Grey Lady as a Wit (Belgian white ale).
Pours a hazy gold with an aggressive frothy head of fine bubbles. (Two fingers +.) The carbonation remains quite lively even after the pour settles for a while. The head is nice and clingy most of the way down.
The aroma off the head has a spicy, yeasty character which "smells Belgian" to me. Very appealing. (Sorry this isn't more precise.) The texture on the tongue is full and soft--really great.
The flavour is grassy, wheaty and has a lot of citrus--it's downright lemony! There's a nice tart pucker and dryness on the finish which lingers a long while.
I'm really enjoying this--my first bottle was one of those "wow" beer experiences that, well, as a beer lover i'm always seeking. Bravo.

Poured from a bottle at durgin Park in Bosto, Massachusetts. In fact I cleaned out their stock by nights end;0
Very hazy banana in color. Two finger head with fairly good retention. minor lacing
very spicy aroma with notes of lemon and pepper.
Exceptional citrus taste, slightly sweet, slightly bitter with minimal aftertaste. Not at all overpowering and excellent drinkability.
Hoping I will be able to find this back home.
