The name "Grey Lady" comes from the nickname for the often-foggy island on which it is brewed. This hazy, Belgian-style Wit emits a complex nose with sophisticated notes.

Appearance: Hazy straw like the sun trying to burn its way through an early morning fog. The head is surprisingly thin for a wit. Smell: Perfumey and spicy, citrus, white bread, traces of banana and wheat. Taste: Spicy, ginger, orange, wheat, hint of banana. Mouthfeel: Medium body and slightly above medium carbonation.

12-oz bottle into pilsner glass

A - cloudy golden yellow body under three fingers of white foam; tons of visible carbonation

S - citrus, spices, floral, herbal

T - citrus, spices (coriander predominates), wheat bread

M - light body, medium/high carbonation

O - Impressive nose, decent taste, interesting wit. Taste and feel both seem rather light--seems like a good summer brew.

Pours a very hazy yellow color with a nice off white head that trails the glass. The smell is full of all spice and orange peel. The taste was very refreshing with a lemon peel in the beginning with the malt and spice coming in on the finish. Very interesting and tasty beer.

Can into tulip thanks to Cisco rep at Beachwood BBQ Seal Beach who just happened to be eating at the same time I was. Light yellow with thin white head. Aroma is coriander, clove, citrus zest, wheat malt. Flavor is similar with earthy bitter undertones. Spice notes are very strong. Finish is crisp and dry. Light bodied and thin feeling with moderate carbonation. Not something I’d go back to.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip that I'm told is more like a pokal.

Appearance: Pours a semi-foggy yellow with a two-finger bone white head. Lots of bubbles. Some lacing on way down. Nice looking beer.

Aroma: Citrus, coriander, spices, lemon, wheat are all present.

Taste: Taste follows the nose, but is slightly more subdued than I'd expected. It's kind of light and easy on the palate. Citrus and coriander come forward as it warms.

Mouthfeel: Somewhat light. Summery. I'd like a wee bit more body from a witbier, but not a deal breaker.

Overall: Nice little number from Cisco. Yet another beer I'd hand to Blue Moon Guy and be like, "Guy, try this instead."

I found this beer to very watery and for the most part, tasteless. The body is very thin and spices and hops hardly make a showing.
