3.09/5 rDev -12.2%
Pours a bit cloudy, with no head on my pint from the bartender.
Faint aroma, a bit spicy and wheaty.
Taste has obvious coriander - not too much, but quite obvious. Leads to an earthy taste, a bit spicy, but not too much. Citrus also shows up with the strong wheat flavor.
Not a bad beer for the summer.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass
Chill-hazed light gold in color, with a cap of fluffy bright white foam.
Aroma-Pale malt, faint spices
Taste-Wheat,in-the-background spiciness. Very subtle flavors, but very refreshing and easy-drinking. A pleasant warm weather brew to be sure.

3.48/5 rDev -1.1%
Pours a slightly hazy blonde with a frothy ivory head that lingers.
Aroma is dominated by lemon and wheat, with a bit of orange peel and coriander.
Flavor is fairly lemony and minerally, with a soft wheat kick at the finish.
A little more citrus than I prefer, but a refreshing, easy drinking beer. Becomes floral late. Kinda flat.

Grey Lady is a clouded pale gold color or, more accurately, sort of dusty near-medium yellow. The off-white head is sparse, peaking at just under half a finger of big-bubbled froth and leaving spotty lacing while leaving a layer atop the beer for the duration.
The spiciness is prominent in the smell, sort of an allspice and cardamom before a light hint of sweetness coming from the yeast kicks in to add a touch of banana and something like pear. The earthiness expected is there, and some lemon under dry wheat.
The flavor is likewise spiced, though a distinctive note of something like bergamot makes itself known, and I wonder if that's intentional. Otherwise it's very floral and perfumy, while the wheat sets the foundation and a lemony twang comes out front. more Belgian character would do this beer some good, but it's far from bad.
It's got a little more spritz than crispness, but it does have a nice running dryness with a spicy bite on the tongue, and it's fairly smooth as well.

A - Pours a hazy/murky yellow, slight lacing, 2 inch foamy white head
S - citrus, spice, lemon, very fruity
T - grain, what, citrus, lemons, multiple spices, herbal tea
M - light bodied, crisp, refreshing
O - Interesting combination of the herbal tea, lemon, and the fruity citrus. The aroma is quite nice that leads into a bit underwhelming taste, but still a nice beer. Very zesty and refreshing. I would enjoy this beer more if the spices and fruit were a bit more powerful.
